The popular travel destination: Spain travel and accommodation

Spain is surrounded by hundreds of astonishing beaches. The whole country is fully of colours: bullfight, tasty food, flamenco dancers. The ideal place for Summer holidaymakers wanting to gather around a bowl of paella and a glass of sangria…

Beyond these images, a stunning view appears in front of your eyes. Dark green mountains sliding into the Atlantic in the north, medieval castles and towns decorating the interior, small, friendly villages glitter in the southern Andalucía and mountain ranges such as the Sierra Nevada invite tourists to their ski resorts.

From its Roman and baroque cathedrals memories to Muslim palaces, the country treasures artistic. Spain’s cities sparkle like new ornaments with a slew of daring signature buildings in Barcelona, Bilbao and Madrid.
