Barcelona

Known for its art, architecture and Gothic Quarter, Barcelona is Spain’s top tourist destination for good reason. The Catalonia region offers sweeping, panoramic views of the sea in one direction, and a cosmopolitan metropolis in the other. The legendary Sagrada Familia church, Museu Picasso and medieval Gothic Quarter are just a handful of the must-see historic landmarks. Foodies should be sure to check out the La Boqueria market, offering a vibrant culinary scene or any of the many seafood restaurants scattered over the coast. Eixample and El Born boast vivacious nightlife entertainment and bars for music and dancing.

 

Madrid

Spain’s capital city offers Baroque architecture, masterfully preserved parks, theater and arts, nightlife and much more. The expansive Plaza Mayor is Madrid’s main square and remains a top sight for tourists to explore cafes, shopping and sightseeing. The Museo Nacional del Prado is just one of the many world-class art collections in the city, housing 12th–19th-century masterpieces.

 

Seville

Seville is an amazing Spanish city famous for Flamenco dancing, festivals and cobblestone alleys. Located in the Andalusia region or southern Spain, Seville has an elaborate history of fine arts and unbeatable tapas. The Seville April Fair is a celebration of eating, drinking and dancing, and a prime time to visit.

 

Tossa de Mar

Located in the Catalonia region of Spain, Tossa de Mar is located north of Barcelona and just 60 miles from the French boarder. This quaint municipality offers incredible views from near private beaches to the stone castle perched over the charming village. Explore historic sites amid the city’s ideal blend of bustle and relaxed beach life.
