  • Las Ramblas

    Barcelona Favorites

    La Rambla was the first street in central Barcelona I began to explore the city. I knew that it was popular with tourists and locals alike.it stretches for 1.2 kilometers between Barri Gòtic and El Raval, connecting Plaça de Catalunya in the centre with the Christopher Columbus Monument at Port Vell. If you stroll along the street you will find a...

  • City Center

    Palma de Mallorca Favorites

    - no, is not a mature only place, I would say the contrary - yes, is a hardcore party place, many pubs, discos and bars, open until late night - for sure is not a too quiet place - weather will be great, no rains in september - beach is great for swiming, kyte surf or just walking on the seashore Palma city center is near, 10m on public bus. Use...

  • BEACHES

    Ibiza Favorites

    You will find that many beaches are nudist, so if you do not like them, just try to avoid them. Normally they go to Beaches where access is not easy Ibiza is a very relaxed island, where no one cares what you do if you respect them

  • Guadalquivir River and Bridges

    Sevilla Favorites

    Along the Guadalquiver River that runs through and seperates Sevilla into two, you find many small parks where you can take a few minutes to rest from your walks through the town. We also saw this lone kayaker with his trainer. These were the ONLY things moving on the river in contrast to the Seine in Paris where the waterway is crammed with...

  • THE ALHAMBRA

    Granada Favorites

    It's a long walk up the hill to the Alhambra. Once you get there, the lines waiting to hand over money to get inside the buildings. However, the exteriors of the buildings and the view from the hill are worth the effort.

  • Beaches & at the Coast

    Majorca Island Favorites

    Cala Major is a resort in the south west of Majorca; some km far from Palma. It has everything you need. There you can find lots of shops and a good choice of restaurants and cafes. This resort has a little beach. In case you find the beach at Cala Major too crowdy you can head to the next resort; Cala Bona. There you find a smaller nice beach....

  • Malaga Streets

    Málaga Favorites

    A lot of Malaga is ugly blocks of urban sprawl flats, but in the old centre you can find a beautiful heart. Full of narrow sometimes cobbled pedestrian streets winding in and out of each other. You can see that, like a lot of Andalucia, a lot of money is being put in to 'doing up' the centre of the city. Buildings are freshly painted and restored...

  • Old Town

    Marbella Favorites

    The OLD TOWN or CASCO ANTIGUO of Marbella is perhaps the loveliest town in the Costa Del Sol in my opinion. With its narrow picturesque streets, adorned with balconies overflowing with colourful flowers, its many Plazas such as Plaza de la Iglesia, Plaza de los Naranjes, Plaza de la Victoria and Plaza Santo Cristo. There are also many churches and...

  • Museums

    Bilbao Favorites

    You have to see the Guggenheim: and keep on seeing it, at different times of the day, on different days. It always looks different. As a work of art it's a masterpiece. As an art-gallery, it fails. Here, form does not follow function. On the outside it overshadows both the (not small, or un-noticeable) Jeff Koons' "puppy", nor the equally...

  • FERIA DEL CABALLO

    Jerez de la Frontera Favorites

    Jerez is well known for Horses and Sherry. It is Spain's capital for Horse breeding and a destination for horse-lovers from all over the world who meet here each year for the FERIA DEL CABALLO. It started in 1289 as a livestock market and has developed into a show of the most beautiful horses in Spain, some of which are Spanish Barbs, Friesians and...

  • Alcazaba

    Almería Favorites

    The Tercer Recinto at the north-west end of the Alcazaba is a fortress which was added by the Catholic Monarchs. Its thick stone walls and sturdy round towers are in much better condition than the rest of the Alcazaba.

  • Sagrada Família

    Barcelona Favorites

    There are many places where buying advance tickets to see a place or take part in an event is essential in Spain. My experience with La Sagrada Familia was this was not necessary based on how quick the line moves. We arrived at La Sagrada Familia on a late April Sunday afternoon at just past noon. There was a long line that ran around two blocks....

  • Retiro Park

    Madrid Favorites

    This was my park of my early teen years and need to breath its air each time in the city now like a pilgrimage. Here was my leisure times, my dancing times (florida park) and my first love rowing in the lake! A meeting place with friends after school and more. Therefore it is special and on each visit need to come closer. For the visitor, it will...

    Palma de Mallorca Favorites

    Hello there... I´ve seen in forums a very typical question about nice beaches in Palma, near the fun or in the contrary, really lonely and peacefull... here is my tip... Looking for fun? The first place that comes to my mind are the classical Arenal and Magaluff, only 10km from Palma but they are really over crowded, I don´t recommend them, only...

  • ES CANA

    Ibiza Favorites

    Es Cana besides being a holiday resort, aimed at mostly families, is also a fishing harbour. There are boat trips from here to Santa Eulalia. The beach which lies in a curve is very sheltered and also the sea has no currents making if very safe for children. There are many bars/restaurants to suit most pockets and lots of souvenir shops. The...

  • Seeing Seville by foot

    Sevilla Favorites

    I have no idea why narrow streets so fascinate me, I guess it could be because I grew up in a home that had distance between us and the neighbours, so I try to imagine how it would be living and growing up when you could literally put your arm out the window and touch your neighbour across the street.

  • ALBAICIN

    Granada Favorites

    El Albayzín is a district that retains the narrow winding streets of its Medieval Moorish past. It was declared a world heritage site in 1984, along with the more famous Alhambra. It rises on a hill facing the Alhambra and many tourists journey into the Albayzin primarily for the spectacular views of the Alhambra from the viewing point by the...

    Majorca Island Favorites

    While touring the island one day.. Many tourists thnk of Mallorca only as a party island or a place to go for the sun and teh beach. But Mallorca has a whole different side that many people don't see. Or maybe aren't terribly interested in. Which is a pitty of course. On the other hand, i prefer the uninterested to stay on their beaches and in...

  • Costa del Sol Towns

    Málaga Favorites

    My favorite thing was the horse and carriage ride in the center of Malaga. Picking a favorite thing was tough- Malaga is so interesting- beautiful cathedral, gorgeous sea views - travel on the coast- skip the auto pista- a modern highway but NOT scenic. We visited the Picasso Museum- a must see! We ate tappas in the little sidewalk cafes- we like...

If you just want to sit and relax on the beach, you can rent umbrellas or rent a lounge chair for the day at 4 Euros. At any given time people were sun-bathing, swimming, walking...

  • Basque Country

    Bilbao Favorites

    If you take a little tour along the basque coast north of Bilbao, you should stop at Matxitxako Cape, a lighthouse between Bakio and Bermeo. You must take a little road that goes to the cape from the main road Bakio-Bermeo. After 8 kilometres of nice woods and coast landscapes you arrive to this peaceful end, from where you have nice views of the...

  • The Tourist Office

    Jerez de la Frontera Favorites

    The Tourist Office is can be found near the junction of Calle Larga and Alameda Cristina, at the side of the church (just out of the picture to the right, unfortunately). Like most tourist offices, the staff are very friendly and helpful, speak good English and have plenty of information to give, including a good map of Jerez. This year I got a...

  • Almeria Beaches

    Almería Favorites

    Beach is quiet and the little bars are relaxed and easy going, bars all have their own sun beds and you can have your lunch drinks etc all within feet of your sun lounger. Sangaria was great after a hard days sun bathing. Spending each pre dinner drinks on beach and then the most wonderful fish in Spain

  • Puerta del Sol

    Madrid Favorites

    There are two interesting things in this square. First is the statue of a bear, symbol of Madrid, eating fruit from the tree. Second one is the spot on the ground, which shows the middle of Spain. I think we would not have found it without our friend, but just look at the ground. In the end, above all of those stands a statue of king Carlos III. To...

  • Churches / Cathedrals

    Palma de Mallorca Favorites

    The old city of Palma, with its narrow and stony streets, is a mix of palaces (Almudaina), gifts shops and museums. The cathedral is the symbol of the city, but the city is more than this particular monument.

    Ibiza Favorites

    Hi, I was also planning a visit on nov 8 thru 10th. I will in Barcelona for business during the first week of november. After reading some postings, I am not sure if I should go to Ibiza or wait for summertime to visit. I am alone as well, so it would be better to visit with friends or company.

  • Plaza de Espana

    Sevilla Favorites

    Taking walks all over Seville is what I enjoy the most. I call it a "perfect walking city" since I felt I could just go on and on, walking anywhere, and still enjoy every bit of the city. Spending a quiet afternoon in Plaza de Espana, watching the crowds go by and spending the afternoon, sitting quietly, observing every bit of this amazing plaza.

  • CATHEDRAL

    Granada Favorites

    Having immersed yourself in Mosques and Moorish architecture in the Albaicin the area round the cathedral marks a return to Christian Granada and the famous Catholic rulers who succeeded the Moors. Ferdinand and Isabella commissioned Granada's enormous cathedral and while it doesn't hold a candle to the monuments of the Moors it is quite...

  • Cultural background

    Bilbao Favorites

    I think a good way to find out about a culture is to listen to their music whether tradtional or modern. While in Bilbao and Basque Country I discovered an artist by the name of Fermin Muguruza. His music is sung in Basque and is political in nature but fun to listen to. Once i arrived back at home I checked out his website and the lyrics were also...

  • Internet Access

    Jerez de la Frontera Favorites

    No excuses for not logging in to VT. Whilst the better hotels will have internet access that you can use, the costs will be much higher than in an internet cafe, e.g 2 euros for 30 minutes. In the internet cafe I used, it was one euro per hour, minimum 0.50 euros, and charged by the minute. I used Ciber y Locutorio Onda Telecom, which is in Calle...

    Another do not miss during the visit to the island is to enjoy a Sunset from San Antonio, there are many but of course if you like Café del Mar music this would be your starting point. Maybe the sunset is not as spectacular as you expect (well clouds in the last half an hour did not help LOL) also it is crowded, if you prefer more quiet ones you...

    Sevilla Favorites

Save your feet, and slow down to a pace more enjoyable, Meanwhile you can walk to the river, cross over and see another neighborhood, walk to the art museum--there is even a small Goya there, shop for a paella pan in...
