Top Places To Visit & Tourist Attractions In Spain
The beautiful weather of Spain’s ‘sun coast’, the Costa del Sol, is just one of the many reasons that European visitors flock here year after year. In addition to plenty of sunshine, travellers to this region can experience delicious food and warm local hospitality. On our holidays to Spain, we’ll tour this magnificent coastal region with stops in the beautiful white-washed village of Frigiliana and the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, Malaga. On other trips, we’ll have the opportunity to stare out over the panoramic ‘Balcony of Europe’ in Nerja or wander through the luxurious Puerto Banus.
City lovers will enjoy the unique architecture and interesting culture of Spain’s Catalan capital, Barcelona. Located between the stunning beaches of the Costa Brava and the jagged mountains of Montserrat, Barcelona has something for everyone. On our holidays to Barcelona, we’ll explore the magical creations of Gaudi, marvel at the city’s impressive Gothic quarter and stroll down the famous shopping street, Las Ramblas. The city is also known for its delicious cuisine, so we recommend trying some authentic paella or pa amb tomàquet while visiting!
Andalucía is Spain’s southernmost region, encompassing the famous cities of Granada, Seville, Cordoba, Malaga and more. From the 8th century to the 15th century, this area of Spain was under Moorish rule. Today, that influence is visible in the incredible fusion of Islamic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture through Andalucía. When travelling with us to explore this incredible part of the country, we’ll learn about the history of the Moors from an expert guide and see one of the best examples of Moorish architecture, the Alhambra!
Dramatic cliffs and delicious cuisine await us in Spain’s northern Basque region! This stunning region of Spain is nestled between the beautiful Bay of Biscay and the western Pyrenees Mountains. Known for its unique language and culture, the Basque Country is not to be missed. On our Highlights of the Basque Country holiday, we’ll have a chance to discover this incredible region with day trips to San Sebastian, known as Spain’s ‘foodie capital’; Bilbao, home to the Guggenheim modern art museum; and Pamplona, famous for the festival of San Fermin or the ‘Running of the Bulls’.
Spain’s Canary Islands are located just off the coast of Africa, making it the perfect holiday destination year round. The largest and most popular of the islands, Tenerife is known for its stunning beaches and the dramatic volcanic mountain of Teide, Spain’s highest peak. On our holidays to Tenerife, we’ll visit the popular seaport of Santa Cruz and the UNESCO World Heritage site of La Laguna. We’ll also have plenty of leisure time to soak up the sun or explore, with personalised recommendations from our expert guides.

Is it safe to tour Spain?
The places visited while touring Spain are generally safe and our guides will always keep an eye out for you. However, where tourists congregate, there can be opportunists and pickpockets.

Always take extra care if using public transport.

Tips for hotel staff who have offered exceptional service will also be appreciated.

The most common plug type is the continental two-pin round, although some hotels have installed 3-pin square sockets. We recommend you pack an adaptor, just in case.
