Just a short flight from the UK, Spain is a popular destination for holiday goers all around the world.
The diverse culture, good food, and warm climate are appealing to tourists, as well as the huge number of historical and cultural landmarks that appear on the bucket lists of many a traveler.
We’ve picked out three of the best historical and cultural hotspots for your next holiday in Spain:
Hiking in the Picos de Europa
A hiking holiday might not be for everyone, but those who love walking should head to the Picos de Europa range in northern Spain. And those who aren’t so keen? They’ll soon be glad they made the journey when they capture a glimpse of the breath-taking views on offer there. Craggy mountains, a beautiful oak forest, and snow-tipped peaks are all in abundance at this range.
As it is fairly small for a mountain range, it means you can enjoy many of the trails in one day, and even the winding roads going up to the spot are exciting and wonderful. And best of all, there’s barely ever big crowds of tourists there so you can explore and snap pictures in relative peace.
La Sagrada Familia with the Family
A European city break to Barcelona is a great way to make sure the kids never once say that they’re bored. There’s so much to explore, including the Gothic Quarter, the Science Museum (CosmoCaixa) and the Tibidabo amusement park, which are sure to keep the full family entertained.
Perhaps the more significant landmark, though, is La Sagrada Familia, famous architect Antoni Gaudi’s temple. Awarded UNESCO World Heritage Status, along with a number of his other works, it has great cultural and historical value and a must-see when you visit Barcelona with the family.
Getting Lost in the Dalí Triangle
Surrealist artist Salvador Dalí is very closely associated with the region of Costa Brava in Spain. The Dalí Triangle consists of three towns, Cadaqués, Figueres, and Púbol, each of which features a major museum of his works. The main one is the Dalí Theatre-Museum (located in Figueres), that’s filled with pink walls, the iconic Mae West lips sofa and many other of his famous works.
In the small hilltop town of Púbol is the Medieval Castle that Dalí converted for his wife, Gala, and the little town of Cadaqués is where he lived for around 50 years of his life. Art lovers will certainly appreciate the fine work that this prominent artist created.
So, there you go. Clearly, Spain is the ideal holiday spot for those looking for culture on their holiday in Spain. With something for everyone, Spain is full of gems that can be easily accessed from holiday parcs like the ones from Eurocamp. With so much to see and do and convenient places to stay, you’ll be sure to continue returning to Spain year after year.
