From white-washed villages in the mountains and miles of beautiful Mediterranean coastline to Islamic palaces and magnificent cathedrals there are many sides to Spain that make it a hugely popular tourist destination. Whether you’re looking to soak up the sun on a glorious beach or to spend a few days in a cosmopolitan city you’ll find it all here.

The capital Madrid is a dynamic city with fantastic restaurants, markets and flamenco shows to enjoy as well as sites including the Royal Palace to look round. Barcelona in the northern region of Catalonia is an art fan’s heaven – it’s the hometown of Gaudi, Picasso and Miro who have all left their mark. And, of course, there are the many resorts of the Costa del Sol or the welcoming Seville in the south that are ever popular with visitors.
