Barcelona offers beautiful beaches and a wonderful nightlife while Girona, Tarragona and Lleida are famously  known for their cultural and environmental heritage.

The Spanish culture comes to life in the streets of Madrid with Flamenco performances and acrobatics, and the architecture and colour of Puerta del Sol and the Gran Via.

Football enthusiasts, head to Santiago Bernabeu, the home of Real Madrid while for art lovers, the Golden Triangle of Art in Madrid and the Picasso Museum in Malaga, the birthplace of the artist, are a must. A prominent festival, the annual San Fermin festival in Pamplona in July is worth experiencing. In Andalucía, visit Cordoba, Sevilla and Granada where you can find the Alhambra, Albaicin and Sacromonte.

The Balearic island of Ibiza, a world-famous party destination, has a large number of bars and clubs. No trip to Spain is complete without indulging in tapas and paella, washing them down with rioja and sangria, with churros bringing the meal to a crescendo.
