Spain Trips

Why travel solo to Spain?

There are fewer countries more endlessly diverse than Spain – which proves to be everything you’d expect and not at all as you imagined all at the same time.

Flamenco and bull-fighting. Tapas and wine. Vibrant Barcelona and sun-kissed beaches; these are all images that spring to mind at the mention of Spain. But this is also a country of fiercely independent and distinct identities, medieval Islamic heritage, conservative Catholicism and a fun-loving, fiesta spirit for which the night doesn’t end until dawn.

And its landscapes are just as diverse: home to the only desert in Europe, just a short drive away from the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada (skiing in southern Spain? Oh yes), you’ll find there’s much more to Spain than you could imagine.

To visit Spain is to immerse yourself in a landscape of contrasts, surprises and diverse beauty – one to which you’ll just keep returning.

Top places to visit in Spain

Madrid

Spain’s capital city is full of beautiful boulevards and well-tended parks, but it’s renowned for being home to a huge range of exceptional European art. In Madrid’s galleries and museums you can find work by Goya and Velázquez, as well as other Spanish masters. You can also find a thriving gastronomic culture, with foodie delights available in excellent restaurants and street food stalls alike.

Barcelona

Architectural masterpieces by Gaudí, such as the Sagrada Família, are found throughout Barcelona and beautifully complement its rich cityscape. Be sure to admire the Gothic architecture of Santa Maria del Mar; explore Europe’s largest and most famous food market, La Boqueria; or indulge in one of the city’s many art galleries.

Seville

This historic city is overlooked by a grand Gothic cathedral, also the the site of Christopher Columbus’s tomb, and filled with twisting medieval lanes, resplendent Mudéjar palaces and beautiful baroque churches. It’s also particularly famous for flamenco dancing, so make sure you make time to enjoy a performance.

Malaga

Located on the Costa del Sol, Malaga is not only one of the oldest cities in Europe, but one of the oldest continuously habited cities in the world. Yet between its Roman amphitheatres and Moorish ruins, you’ll find thriving art galleries, boutique hotels and stylish restaurants – all of which lend the city a modern vibrancy.
