If you plan to travel in this new rest season, Spain is undoubtedly one of the countries to consider in your next travel itinerary to Europe. The country is full of culture, traditions, gastronomy and history that make it unique. Throughout the centuries, Spain not only contributed to forging the history of Europe, but it is a fundamental part of universal history and perhaps one of the most diverse and contrasting countries you will find on the continent. So take note and check these beautiful cities that you must visit in Spain ...

  • Barcelona

Barcelona, I must admit that this city is unique and has little similarity to its Madrid counterpart. It was not until several years later that I made a second trip when I explored Barcelona in depth and was able to perceive this uniqueness. Catalan culture, art, gastronomy, architecture is impressive and radically contrasting with the rest of the country. Each monument you visit, the street you walk on, the dish you try or something as simple as a greeting (Bon dia) you hear carries a particular identity of this region that will immediately remind you that you are not in Spain but in Catalonia.

This is perhaps one of the things you should start to notice and appreciate about Spain, also one of the reasons why I suggest that you travel exclusively to various cities in the country before you even know other parts of Europe, their regions are so diverse that it is impossible visit one or two cities and believe you have seen Spain.

  • Madrid

Madrid is not only the capital of Spain, it is the cultural center of the country and one of the main cities in Europe. Such is its attractiveness and hospitality that thousands of people of all nationalities have decided to make it their home. This is what really makes Madrid unique, its immersed diversity of nations and regions converging in the same place. One of the first things you will notice about Madrid is that in addition to its impressive number of tourist attractions, the city never sleeps. Day and night you will find movement in the city. Regardless of the day of the week or what time it is, you can find an activity to do.

Their party night begins at 11 p.m. when meeting in a bar to have some beers and eat some tapas and ends at 7 or 8 am the next day having a breakfast of churros and chocolate from San Gines. I suggest that you set aside one day of your trip to Spain to see this Madrid nightlife, it is really worth it as it is part of the cultural legacy of the city, if you want to know more than I speak you can do a quick search on what what the Madrid movement was, the meaning of Madrid kills me and the cultural repercussions it had in the history of Spain.

  • Toledo

This city is considered as The Imperial City, having been the seat of the empire of Carlos I or also known as Carlos V.

Another important part of its history is that the city was controlled by Jews, Catholics, and even Muslims. Along its streets you can see vestiges of this, either in the Jewish quarter or the ruins of what were the Muslim buildings.

Today one of its main attractions, in addition to the Cathedral and Alcazar, is to appreciate the metalwork that has been done for centuries. Swords, knives, pocket knives, axes, are some of the many weapons that you can see in stores in Toledo.
