Spain has plenty of rich cultures, grand architecture, and activities to enjoy all year round. Beachgoers flock to the pristine beaches of Ibiza, Galicia and the Costa del Sol, while the national parks of Alicante and San Sebastian are popular among nature lovers in the summertime. The cities of Barcelona and Madrid are known for Gothic and Renaissance buildings, as well as some of the world’s largest art museums.

    It’s safe to say Spaniards love festivals, whether in the form of sombre religious rituals or outrageous food fights. Each city has its own unique celebration, and you often get to enjoy spectacular processions, beautiful costumes, music and dance performances, and fireworks displays. Of course, no trip to Spain is complete without celebrating the country’s love for food and wine. Thanks to its diverse landscape, Spain has a lot to offer almost any traveller.

      Sizzling summers provide ideal conditions for lazy days on buzzing Barceloneta beach, and al fresco feasts of tasty tapas dishes like succulent grilled razor clams and rich Iberico ham. And Barcelona continues to heat up after the sun goes down, with bohemian bars and pulsing nightclubs to explore.
