Beautiful beaches, amazing food, a vibrant festival scene, mountains, sprawling countryside, must-see cities and traditional villages…you’ll find a visit to this Mediterranean idyll to be a wonderful experience. In addition to the mainland, Spain also has the Balearic Islands, which offer as much quiet as they do a party vibe, as well as some of the most glorious coastlines in Europe.
Depending where you stay on your wellness retreat, you’ll uncover a great range of culture both traditional and modern. The city of Barcelona is an artist’s dream and boasts several great architectural works. Madrid is famous for its beautiful parks and walkways. And if you go into the countryside you’ll see winding cobbled streets and whitewashed houses on the edge of wilderness.
Wherever you stay, look out for the local festivals that are taking place. These are all rooted in tradition but often have a quirkiness not found in many other countries. Take La Tomatina Festival for example, in which participants are invited to take part in a great open-air tomato fight. Spain also holds an interesting position in the Mediterranean, being in-between Europe and Africa. This certainly contributes to the region’s fabulously sunny climate.
