Stay in a cave in Guadix (Andalusia)

Walk part of the Camino

In the Pyrenees in Huesca is a must see if you love nature and long hiking paths in steep mountains. The access through the town of Bielsa is recommended.
Sail in river Ebro
The most important river in Spain and take a tour along the region of Catalonia and the river’s mouth. It’s impressive how people built entire towns there and how they grow the biggest rice harvests in the country.
The place where summer lives! The islands might seem a bit out of the way, but they really deserve a visit to contemplate the volcanic landscape and the Teide, an old volcano located on the island of Tenerife.
It goes without saying that Barcelona is one of the most impressive cities in Spain because of its genuine architecture, history and cultural background. Remember to come with at least three spare days to fully enjoy its beauty.
