Map of Spain

On the beautiful Northern coast of Spain you'll find stunning beaches and rugged coves with delicious seafood, known as morisco, on the menu. Not far inland are the spectacular Picos de Europa, a mountain range that is perfect for climbing, walking and spotting wildlife, with rustic towns and alpine villages scattered amongst the vast hills and jagged gorges.

Uncover Spain's history at the striking Moorish palaces, medieval castles and Gothic cathedrals of Castilla y León or take in the unique culture of the Basque Country in Pais Vasco. Not only does Cantabria have beautiful beach resorts such as Santander and San Vicente de la Barquera, but it also has an excellent selection of caves to explore, including the famous Altamira caves full of ancient Paleolithic cave paintings. Galicia is so green and lush it is often compared to Ireland but with better weather!

In the south, you'll discover the classical sun-baked Spain, a place of white-washed villages, traditional fiestas and flamenco! Vibrant Madrid and bustling Barcelona are full of colour and flavours and be sure to try out the tapas bars wherever you are in Spain.
