Spain in pictures + Andalusia
In brief +
World-renowned historical cities, monasteries, cathedrals and museums make Spain a historical and cultural hotbed. Partner that with snow-capped Sierrasand sun drenched Costas, you'll find a corner of the country that suits your perfect idea of a getaway.
The country oozes flare and each province has its own unique identity seeped in history and tradition. Get whisked off your feet by the flurry of a flamenco dancer's dress and the clack of her castanets in Andalusia, take a stroll round the quaint plazas of Spanish villages, explore divine caves and seascapes in Asturias or tour the archeological sites around Castille-Léon. Great quality Spanish food and a glass of sangria can be found wherever you stay. However each region's identity is stamped with its signature dishes, such as the fresh calemares from the Galician sea, paella in Valencia and cured ham in Salamanca.
For many, Spain's priceless attribute is the leisurely pace of life, which makes for an exceptionally therapeutic break. Afternoons are spent basking in the sun amongst friends or family, or in the cool of an air-conditioned bar or restaurant savouring your tapas. However, come sunset and the night is set ablaze with dancing to Latino rhythms that will show you the true meaning of a Spanish fiesta. Viva España!
Travel is my driving force in life, and although I have had the privilege of visiting 30 countries so far, my heart will always remain in India... Writer's Easyvoyage profile
