Spain, the second-largest country in Western Europe, spans the Pyrenees Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea and boasts culture-rich cities, beach towns, and ski resorts. That's just the mainland—add to this array several fine archipelagos home to popular hotels in Spain. This is the place where you can fling tomatoes in the street and run with the bulls, or perhaps you'll just sip some sangria and dine on tapas while basking in the Spanish sun.
Madrid, Spain's capital, sits in the center of the country, and the Old Town, Royal Palace, and many excellent art museums are among Madrid's major attractions. The largest city on Spain's Mediterranean coast is Barcelona, a popular destination known for its unique architecture, particularly the works of Antoni Gaudi, whose unfinished masterpiece, Sagrada Familia, is an icon of the city. Hotels in Barcelona are your base for exploring medieval buildings in the Gothic Quarter, lounging on seven city beaches, and walking around botanical gardens and forest parks. Valencia is another city on the Mediterranean, and it features a vibrant arts scene and landmark cathedral.
Spain resorts are concentrated along the sunny beaches of this side of the country, too; some popular stretches are the Costa del Sol, Costa Brava, and Costa Blanca. On the northern coast is Bilbao, the cultural center of the Basque Country, while in the south is a remarkable relic of Spain's Moorish heritage, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Alhambra palace complex in Granada. The Sierra Nevada mountain range is between Granada and the sea, and while there you can go downhill skiing in winter and marvel at Spain's highest point. Find great deals on hotel packages in Spain in the Canary Islands, located in the Atlantic Ocean off Morocco, and check out the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Both island chains are known for their beaches, natural beauty, and nightlife.
