To Spain With Love

Written by Erz on Wednesday, October 24, 2007

If you’ve worked yourself to the bone, it’s time to relax and take a trip to beautiful Spain. Spain is an extremely beautiful and romantic country and you wouldn’t want to miss out on some attractions there:

Torre de Bujaco or simply The Bujaco Tower is an awesome landmark. Standing at 25 meters, it has also been called the “New Tower” or the “Watch Tower”. This exotic Arabic tower was once under Muslim control and its name is derived from Caliph Abú-Ya’qub, whose troops conquered the city way back in 1173. Another attraction is Muralla de Avila, which means “city walls of Avila”. Situated in Avila, which is the highest city in Spain, Muralla de Avila is a whopping 2,526 meters in longitude. You’ll want to spend more than a day there so do check out the hotels in spain when planning for your trip.

After a quick rest in one of the hotels in barcelona, be on your way to Sagrada Familia, which is one of Barcelona’s most popular tourist spots. This basilica by Antoni Gaudi is one sight you won’t forget very soon. La Boqueria hosts one of the oldest markets of its kind in Europe. The huge array of fresh produce is sure to captivate anyone. The Gorthic quarter or Barri Gòtic is at the center of Barcelona and has many small streets lined with shops.

Next, head to the capital of Spain, Madrid. Check out the finest masterpieces in the largest art gallery in the world – Prado museum. Then enjoy the flora and fauna at the Botanic Gardens. Finally, experience what it is like to be a king by visiting the Royal Palace before resting for the night in one of the posh hotels in madrid.

    Anytime I read a travel piece I am ready to book a ticket. I'm such a sucker for any cultural experience. Sounds amazing! I've done Europe, much of Asia, and North Africa. Hands down my favorite trip was a food and wine tour to Tuscany. Really had the time of my life and it's like every local is there to help you enjoy. Next trip you should check it out.
