Unique Spain Experiences

Tapas and saffron in a paella
What to Eat

Spain is home to one of the best food scenes in Europe with a bevy of world-famous dishes and fresh seafood from both coasts. With a group, sample your way around a table of tapas, or savor the notes of saffron in a paella. You’ll notice artisanal ham, known locally as jamón, on the menu from Barcelona to Seville. Raise a bubbly glass of cava, or another indulgent Spanish wine, for a toast before each delicious meal.

La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain
What to See

In Barcelona, step into the Picasso Museum and visit La Sagrada Familia, to get a taste of Gaudí’s unfinished masterpiece, then wander through the oldest market, La Boqueria and visit the sunny beaches. Madrid offers art at Prado, history at Royal Place, and sport at a Real Madrid CF match. Other popular sites outside the main cities are the citadel of Alhambra and flamenco dancing in Seville.

The Island of Ibiza
What to Do

Stay in Madrid, Barcelona, or one of the smaller Spanish cities, and delight in the museums, churches, and parks. Venture to the diverse countryside for a slower pace of life. The Spanish shores are known for craggy Mediterranean beaches and crystal blue waters, especially the islands of Ibiza and Majorca. Hike the Pyrenees Mountains for striking vistas, or venture to the south to see the Moorish influence on Spanish culture at Alhambra.

Rent a vehicle, hail a taxi or take the train between citys.
How to Get Around

The major cities of Spain offer metros for commuting between sights, your hotel, and delicious meals. Take a train between cities, including a high-speed service between Madrid and Barcelona. Buses with regular timetables service smaller towns. Rent a vehicle, hail a taxi, or log into a rideshare app for car service. If you’re heading to one of the islands, check the ferry schedule for a scenic ride.
