About Spain

Feisty Spain packs a serious travel punch. It offers unbelievable food from paella to potatos bravas and a trillion tapas in between. It’s home to some of the most iconic architectural masterpieces, hogs a significant portion of the Mediterranean coastline and claims some of the most exciting, sun drenched islands on earth. While the heavy pours of sangria in every province provides some similarity across cities and regions, each corner of Spain offers a unbelievably distinct experience. From the Barrio Gothico in Barcelona to the trail-less hikes on the island of Mallorca, Spain has earned the label of “favorite country” from many well-traveled wanderers.

When to Go: High season is June-August during the summer holidays when the weather is sunny and warm. Spring and fall are a good time to visit with smaller crowds and mild weather. Winter is low season for most of Spain, but high season for skiing in the mountains.
