Anybody looking for culture, diverse landscapes and a country saturated in history will find everything they are looking for in Spain. Add into the mix a place committed to the good life and some of the best cuisine in the world and you have the ingredients for a perfect stay. Roman ruins, Islamic palaces, medieval towns and Gothic cathedrals lie like patchwork across the country. From the verdant hills of Galicia to the sun-scorched plains of Andalucía, the modernist beauty of Barcelona to the frenetic-paced capital Madrid, a trip to Spain will stir the soul. Several international airports provide the gateway to its main regions including Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas, Barcelona-El Prat, Málaga-Costa del Sol and Palma de Mallorca and airlines with flights to Spain include Ryanair, easyJet and Vueling.
Madrid is the lively capital, as much known for its vibrant nightlife and tapas scene as its wealth of cultural sights. You can wander through Madrid's museum triangle and see some of the world's finest artwork, admire 17th century buildings, discover peaceful parks and refuel on tapas before embracing Madrid's intriguingly varied nightlife. The country's thriving second city, Barcelona, is a captivating coastal city, with monuments and museums that thrill, delicious cuisine and a stylish and cool night scene to boot. If you are seeking sunshine and fun, there are endless beach options, from the peninsula's coastal regions to the spectacular islands. Rarely drawing breath year round, Spain wholeheartedly celebrates the art of the fiesta featuring flamenco, carnival, religious processions and street parties.
