Interesting Places to Visit in Spain

El Acebuchal

This place has been given the title ‘The Lost Village,’ which is basically just asking for eager travellers to turn up, cameras in hand, ready to snap some pics of a ghost town.

Segovia

Those of you who are fans of Disney; this is the place for you. Just take a look at the castle and you’ll know why. Yes, the historic Alcázar Castle was the inspiration for Cinderella’s palace in the Disney film.

Valencia

It’s not all about Madrid and Barcelona. The city famous for its football, Valencia has a lot going for it as well. As the third-biggest city in Spain, Valencia likes to advertise itself as the city of arts and sciences – which makes sense, but we like it for its Mediterranean lifestyle as well!

Marvellous Spanish Castles You Should Visit

Castillo de Peñafiel, Valladolid, Castille and León

Have you ever seen a boat-shaped castle? Well if not, stop by the Valladolid town of Peñafiel to admire this odd but beautiful medieval structure.

The new Castle of Manzanares el Real, Madrid

The new castle of Manzanares el Real, also known as the Mendoza after the noble family who lived here, is a fifteenth-century palace-fortress which sits next to the Santillana reservoir at the foot of the Sierra de Guadarrama.

Castillo de Vélez-Blanco, Almería, Andalucía

Gazing down upon the Andalusian town of Velez Blanco, this castle stands on the remains of an ancient Islamic citadel. Once owned by the Marqués de los Vélez, it is still an imposing sight, despite being looted and neglected during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Famous Beaches of Spain for a Luxury Vacation

Es Trenc, Mallorca

If you think Mallorca is all about overcrowded beaches, run-down resorts, and drunk, sunburned tourists, think again. The largest of the Balearic Islands has another, a lesser-known and far more tasteful side that few travellers get to see.

Cala Macarella and Cala Macarelleta, Menorca

Less developed than the likes of Mallorca and Ibiza, Menorca seems to attract a different breed of traveller. While it also has its fair share of rambunctious resorts, the island is less known for its hedonistic nightlife and more for its secret coves, shimmering waters and excellent hiking, giving it a more laid-back vibe than that of its neighbours.

Carvajal, Fuengirola

One of many Blue Flag beaches in southern Spain, Fuengirola’s renowned Carvajal is an urban beach that is particularly popular with both local and visiting families.
