It’s always a good time to travel to Spain. That’s because this country in southern Europe has all the ingredients to make your visit an unforgettable experience. Cities which bear the marks of a rich mixture of cultures, monuments and natural spaces awarded the World Heritage designation by the UNESCO, some of the world’s most important museums, beaches to suit everybody, a pleasant climate all year round, the healthy Mediterranean diet, typically Spanish traditions such as flamenco and bullfighting. You’ll find it very easy to get here thanks to the multitude of international connections available in Spain. Come and be captivated by the Mediterranean character and by the openness and friendliness of its people. Surrender to the magic of its streets. This is a place where life is always enjoyed to the utmost.
If there’s one thing Spain is famous for, it’s for the lively atmosphere to be found in its streets at any time of the day or night. During the day you can choose between enjoying a drink or snack at any of the numerous open-air cafes and bars, going shopping… The main shopping centers are open all day between approximately 10 am and 10 pm at night, and department stores and shopping centers also open on certain Sundays throughout the year. What’s more, in coastal areas in the high season, most establishments usually stay open until after 10 pm. And remember, the official currency in Spain is the euro. In this Mediterranean country, and particularly from Thursday to Sunday in cities, the nightlife is particularly intense. Pubs and clubs are open until three in the morning, and in some cases through till dawn. There are also numerous other options available, such as taking in a flamenco show or a musical… And all year round, if you enjoy being part of traditional events and experiencing typical celebrations, Spain is the place to be: the carnival celebrations in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Cadiz (in February), Easter Week (in March-April), the Fallas bonfire festival (in March) and the bull-running in San Fermín (in July) are just a few of the festivities which are famous throughout the world.
Here you’ll find almost 8,000 kilometers of coastline with some of the best beaches imaginable. You’ll be able to bathe in transparent waters, whose quality is closely monitored and recognized all over the world. The coast will surprise you with its variety: from the peaceful sands of Andalusia and the Mediterranean, the coves of the Balearic and Canary Islands, to the natural landscapes and cliffs of the beaches in the north. Spain is also one of the countries with the greatest number of spaces holding the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve designation, and is home to areas of great beauty and ecological value like its 14 national parks, all containing a wealth of treasures such as marshes, volcanoes etc. But don’t ever hesitate to ask strangers anything concerning your trip, most friendliest people I’ve come across.
