And for someone planning their next Holiday, a holiday to Spain should be on top of the priority list if not already visited. Although you don’t really need an excuse to visit this country but still here we discuss five of the major reasons why you should visit Spain
Spain has seen a lot of external influences over the history. Muslims, Christians all have ruled Spain for some time in the past and all these influences have combined to shape Spanish architecture which is by far one of the most attractive in the entire world. So, it shouldn’t come as any surprise when we see that a large number of Spanish buildings are termed as UNESCO world heritage. Spain is considered as one of the most beautifully crafted countries in the world. The most interesting thing about Spanish architecture is that you can easily determine the influences made by various cultures over the country’s history. Granada and Cordoba are two cities which you do not want to miss if you have a thing for architecture.
Spain is a proud nation especially when it comes to their rich history and unique culture and they wish to celebrate this culture for all those who visit the country. One unique thing is that the festivals are not uniform all over the country and different regions of Spain celebrate various events. For example, the Malaga fair that includes the world famous bull fighting is only celebrated in the city of Malaga. Where Malaga is world famous for its bull fighting, Barcelona is known for its Dia de Sant Jordi Festival where the city is decorated with flowers and live music is played all over the city.
Even if you are not a football fan but there is still a very high probability that you would be familiar with football clubs Barcelona and Real Madrid. If you don’t want to visit Spain for the architecture or are not really interested in the festivals, still football is a good enough reason to visit the country. Apart from Football, tennis is another sport that has gained a lot popularity in the country.
Spanish cuisine is considered as one of the best in Western world. The country prides itself on its uniquely created menus combining a vast variety of foods in a peculiar manner. Seafood, spices, wine and cheese, Spanish food has it all. To sum it all up let’s just say that if you love food then Spain is your heaven.
5) Music and Dance
The food, the sports and the architecture, all are incomplete without the nation’s peculiar contribution to the world of arts. Paolo Picasso, Flamenco guitar playing and tap dancing are Spanish trademarks. And what can be better than to see these forms of arts in the country of their origin.
