Every country is unique in its own fashion and Spain can boast a lot of things that make it “the first”, “the best”, “the only one”, etc. Considering the above, it is not an easy task to draw a list of best places in Spain, yet I’ve tried hard to pick those sights that are sure to leave a lasting impression on everyone who chooses to travel Spain.
So, what are the best places in Spain worth visiting?
Catalonia’s capital, Barcelona, is a great spot to start with, no doubt here. The city is always on the cutting edge of architecture, industry and fashion. Some say it is even more cosmopolitan than Madrid. But do visit Barcelona and judge for yourself. Stroll down the lively La Rambla, come to admire the unfinished yet imposing Sagrada Familia, marvel at the famous Barcelona Cathedral and spare some energy for the night as the city changes its face after 10 PM. Birthplace of the genial architect Antonia Gaudi, Barcelona boasts a number of unique monuments like La Pedrera or the Parque Guell that may either seem ingenious or ugly, but will not leave you indifferent for sure. You could also take the advantage of Barcelona’s coastal location and move further to Costa Brave, France or the Balearic islands.
Another beautiful city on this list of best places to visit in Spain is Madrid. This is a treasure-trove of art works from different epochs and cultures with the museums making up the Golden Triangle, including the Museo del Prado. Besides, Madrid is a political core of the land as most important Governmental institutions have their headquarters here. The Palacio Real, Puerta del Sol and the rebuilt Opera House are just some of the sights worth visiting in Madrid. Travel Spain and get some exquisite entertainment of this vibrant world’s capital!
