Spain is a country
with many contrasts, it has fabulous stretches of coastline with some of the
best beaches in the world, also stunningly beautiful cities with tremendous
culture. It has everything that a visitor could possible want. We laid out some
of the most beautiful cities in Spain, explore their architecture, and sample
the local food and drink.
First on our list
of beautiful cities of Spain is Bilbao, and this city displays the best of modern
Spanish architecture. Bilbao is very different to many other Spanish cities as
it is not steeped in its old traditions. Even down at the port area you can see
one of the finest modern building in Europe, the Guggenheim Museum. The
colossal building is partly made from titanium and is home to some of the best
modern art that you can find under one roof in the whole world.
Valencia is the birthplace of the Spanish national dish, paella. Other great
cities claim this also, but the paella from Valencia is certainly superb. The
city fuses the old with the new, and the buildings range from eccentrically
modern to classic Spanish.
Perhaps one of the
modern titan’s is the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences. And if you are looking for a city / beach combination
then Valencia is perfect. Valencia also prides itself in sport, and there are
many areas around this city that are dedicated to exercise and the playing of
is one of Spain’s most romantic cities, although the bloody history that
surrounds this great southern city cannot be ignored. Seville is the capital of
Andalusia and there are many examples of its old Moorish past both in the
architecture and the culture.
There are no less
than three UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Seville, which shows just how
beautiful the city actually is. And the ancient streets are filled with vibrant
colors and ancient markets, and of course oranges.
The capital of
Spain is one of the coolest cities on the planet. The good people of Madrid
enjoy the finer things in life, they dress perfectly and enjoy being seen at
the many cafes, restaurants, and tapas bars all over the city. The nightlife in
Madrid is famed all over Spain, and if you are not careful you could spend the
whole night dancing and partying away. Madrid is also full of art and culture
with world class museums and galleries such as Museo del Prado, and Museo
is the city that Gaudi designed, and is one of the most beautiful cities in the
world. From medieval cathedrals to modern apartment blocks, Barcelona has it
all. This vibrant Spanish city has some of the most visited tourist places in
Spain, such as Gaudi’s Casa Batllo, and the amazing Church of Sagrada
Familia. Couple this with a great beach, a vibrant nightlife and some of
the best places to shop in Spain. There is little wonder why Barcelona is so
popular as a tourist destination.
