Spain travel guide

Spain is a renowned tourist destination for a many of reasons: its stunningly well-preserved architecture and historical landmarks, Mediterranean atmosphere, lively culture, tasty food, and of course, its wonderful weather. Situated on the Iberian Peninsula, vacationers can consider spending time in Spain’s mainland, or its islands such as Mallorca, Ibiza, and Gran Canaria.

Spain is the 4th largest country in Europe and boasts a coastline of almost 8,000 kilometers. With its beautiful weather, captivating landscape and rich history and culture, it is no wonder that Spain is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

When it comes to food, Spain is known for its tapas, paella, and sangria. Be sure to try these local specialties during your visit! And of course, no trip to Spain would be complete without seeing some of its famous landmarks, such as the Alhambra palace in Granada, the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona, and the Plaza de España in Seville. And how about my favorite Balearic Islands like Mallorca, Ibiza and Menorca?

Best time to visit

The best time to visit Spain is during the shoulder seasons of spring and fall, when temperatures are milder and there are fewer crowds. That said, Spain is a year-round destination, so visitors can find something to do no matter when they go.

Everything you should know before you go

Before packing your bags and heading off to Spain, there are a few things you should know. For one, the official language is Spanish, though English is also widely spoken.

The currency is the Euro

Visitors from the US will need to purchase adapters for their electrical plugs.

Do take cash with you, since ATMs will charge you around 4 euro every time or a service charge if you don’t hold a Spanish card.

Additionally, while Spain is generally a safe country, visitors should take precautions in crowded areas and beware of pickpockets.
