Which places to visit:
Malaga and Costa Del Sol
Malaga is a popular seaside resort on the southern coast of Spain. Malaga is also known as the birthplace of Pablo Picasso and Antonio Banderas and is full of museums, lots of suns and much more. It is almost impossible not to visit the south of Spain and the powerful Alhambra. Take a day trip and opt for "old road to Granada" instead of the highway. The winding road takes you through vineyards, rustic houses, treacherous mountains, and to Río Frío, a small village known for trout fishing. Once you are in Malaga you should take a road trip and visit Cordoba, Granada, Nerja and Frigiliana, Marbella, Seville and Ronda.
Valencia and Bunol
In Valencia is easy to spend a few days wandering through countless squares, sampling tapas in hidden tapas bars, and enjoying the local drink, horchata, a traditional drink made with ground almonds. However, there is also the small town of Bunol, made famous by the annual La Tomatina tomato tossing festival. Thousands of visitors come to this otherwise quiet town to take part in the fight for the world's greatest food. If you can, be sure to plan your Spain road trip so that you can enjoy the madness in Bunol. The La Tomatina Festival takes place every year on the last Wednesday in August.
The sun, the sea and a rocky peak make Alicante a prime coastal destination in Spain. While many foreign tourists fly into the city's airport and then continue along the coast to the resorts, Alicante itself is worth exploring. The port city has a lively urban beach with the spectacular Monte Benacantil as a backdrop and at the top of this rocky peak is the Castillo de Santa Bárbara. In the evening, stroll through the city's marina and then visit some tapas bars in the old town.
The capital of Spain is a great destination for a weekend getaway. Madrid's golden triangle of art galleries is home to some of Europe's most famous works, from Picasso's Guernica to Velázquez's Las Meninas. In the city is the Royal Palace, the largest palace in Europe in terms of area. You can discover new churches, shops and bars on every corner.
Costa Brava and Barcelona
The Costa Brava is part of Catalonia and there are four provinces with a total of six million inhabitants. The four provinces are Barcelona, Tarragona, Girona and Lleida. Barcelona is the capital of the region. The capital of each province has the same name as the region, so Girona is the capital of the province of Girona. The Costa Brava is located in the province of Girona, like the Catalan Pyrenees. Many people travel to Costa Brava in summer and there is good reason for it. Whether you are staying in Girona or taking a day trip from Barcelona or the Costa Brava, there are tons of activities to keep everyone entertained and educated. Barcelona has iconic architecture and a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Visit Gaudí at the Sagrada Familia and Park Güell, and see some of the architect's lesser-known works, such as Casa Batlló. Take the excursion to the Tibidabo mountain and enjoy the magnificent view over the city to the sea. Lovers of roller coasters should visit the Tibidabo Amusement Park, which opened in 1905, while the mountain is also a great place for biking or hiking.
