An introduction to Spain

Located on the Iberian Peninsula, surrounded by the Atlantic ocean and the Mediterranean sea, Spain is a beautiful country with a rich and pleasant climate. As the largest country in southern Europe, it boasts a population of over 46 million people. Its capital city, Madrid hosts a few famous museums like the Prado National Museum, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum.

El Parque del Retiro (Retiro Park) is one of the city\'s main tourist attractions, housing numerous architectural and sculptural ensembles from the 17th to the 21st centuries. Many Europeans consider Spain the perfect destination for a getaway because the nation features many distinct provinces all offering a unique quality that can’t be found anywhere else on the planet.

The Basques of the North are known for their passionate character and magnificent landscape. The residents of Barcelona are proud to share the wonders of the La Sagrada Familia, Park Güell and Casa Milà (A key representation of Gaudi\'s Architecture). The Andalusians of the south will embrace you with their warm culture of merriment. Expect Flamenco cante y baile (singing and dancing), and the best Pescaíto Frito (fried fish) served with delicious wine.

Just about every place you travel to in the country charms you with its beauty. Then there is the food. The gastronomy of the country is rated among the best in the world. Valencia’s Paella is a tourist favourite along with tapas and Pintxos.

The diversity in meal choices is only enriched by a traditional culture with a vibrant heritage.

Spain is the perfect cocktail of sunshine and relaxation. Plus so much more. It is no wonder famous athletes like Rafa Nadal, Pau Gasol, Andrés Iniesta, Marc Marquez and Mireia Belmonte are happy to call Spain home.

History of Spain

 The history of Spain can be found in the many monuments which are scattered all across the nation. Archaeologists theorise that early homo sapiens first began to enter the Iberian Peninsula about 40,000 years ago.  Since then the area has prospered from its exposure to a wide array of cultures including the Romans, Celtics and Muslims. 

The Aqueduct of Segovia was constructed in 112 AD by the Romans when they settled in the country. The Gothic touch is still alive in tributes such as the Catedral de Burgos or the Catedral de Toledo.  The history Islamic influences are reflected in the Andalusí Art in the south of Spain where you will find the Torre del Oro, the Giralda of Seville, and the stunning Nazarí patrimony of the Alhambra de Granada. The mixing of cultures that the country has cultivated is evident in the unique and original 7th century Mudejar Art which gave birth to the Catedral de Teruel.

But aside from culture, the history of Spain has been a fascinating one including the unification of Aragon and Castile to create a single nation in the 15th century. The country was also a global superpower, building an empire that colonised many Latin American countries. The political landscape would eventually transition, and Spain would eventually fall under the dictatorship of Francisco Franco who ruled from 1939 until his death in 1975. Today Spain is a flourishing democracy, redefining itself as more than a tourist destination.

Weather in Spain

Spain is well known for its sun and the warm temperatures. Rightfully so, the country enjoys 3,000 hours of sunshine every year. However, due to its location, Spain boasts four geographically differentiated types of climate.

Located in the south-west of Europe, Spain is privileged with a warm Mediterranean climate. This weather pattern characterises a significant portion of the country. From the province of Catalonia, down to Andalucia, along  Comunidad Valenciana, Murcia and the Balear Islands, you will find that just about any season of the year is an excellent time for a visit.  

Spain also features areas with a tropical climate. If you fancy sunshine and relaxation 365 days a year, you can\'t afford to miss out on the Canary Islands.  It will be difficult to leave after exploring the volcanic islands and their impressive landscapes.

The Atlantic Ocean also brings periodic rain to the north and northeast of the Peninsula, contributing to the continental weather in the region. The oceanic climate offers relatively milder temperatures, oscillating from 12-15 ºC during the winter and 20-25 ºC in the summer season.

Things to do in Spain

In most cities of Spain, you will find a fantastic social life with lots to do and experience.

The beaches of the coastal regions are a treat for those who enjoy spending time near the ocean. The mountainous ranges of Northern provinces like Teruel are perfect for hiking and camping. Plus, you can plan a trip to the Pyrenees or the Sierra Nevada.

Nature lovers praise the Doñana Natural Park, a natural reserve located in Andalucia, southern Spain. The vast wetland of marshes and dunes is classified as a Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Site. In addition, the beautiful Valle del Jerte in Extremadura is a terrific site to witness the cherry blossoms of the spring season one of the most pleasing visual and olfactory experiences imaginable.

But for those who want to travel to mix with people of Spain, there is even more to do. To experience the essence, and the culture, don’t hesitate to join the Spaniards during their many traditional festivities.

During March, Las Fallas of Valencia is a festivity that will transport you back in time.  It\'s an occasion filled with traditional customs, music, dances, fireworks and unique art pieces. During April, come to Murcia and Andalucia to celebrate Easter. Here the Spanish bring together religion, tradition and folklore as you have never seen before. 

And for July, the San Fermin festival of Pamplona ought to will blow you away. Even the great writer, Ernest Hemingway fell in love with it. Barcelona shines the most in September during La Mercé. And for an incredible place to get away with friends, look no further than Ibiza or Mallorca.

But depending on the which Spanish city you find yourself exploring, your travel options will vary.  In Barcelona, Valencia and Madrid, the public metro and tram are well connected.
