Spain Things to Do

  • Sagrada Familia

    Barcelona Things to Do

    I took an art history course in college (to fill a requirement) and while I gained an appreciation for many artists, I never cared for Gaudi. I was a college student, so whimsy was not beneath me, but I just didn't get it. I intended to go to Park Güell while in Barcelona, but this attraction was not on my radar. The concierge at my hotel strongly...

    Madrid Things to Do

    I have always wanted to visit Spain, with my main agenda being the Prado to see "The Garden of Earthly Delights" in person. I finally convinced my husband that this was a vacation he would enjoy and hoarded enough airline miles to make the trek in style. I purchased my tickets online so that I could avoid the long lines everyone talks about, but...

    Palma de Mallorca Things to Do

    Though its construction continued over several centuries, the Cathedral of Mallorca has retained a largely Gothic-style interior. A few details do deviate from Gothic - other than the obvious Saint Peter's Chapel (see separate tip) - such as the elaborately decorated Renaissance style portals and pulpit. The Cathedral's proportions are majestic:...

  • Palma de Mallorca

    Majorca Island Things to Do

    Off-season travel is, of course, a great bargain. You can flit from Barcelona to the island of Mallorca ; a trip you can take independently that I would recommend highly. When I travel, I try to spend time in a place and in order to get know the people and the culture, so I prefer independent travel, but that's not knocking tours, which are a great...

  • Alhambra

    Granada Things to Do

    It really, really is worthwhile buying these tickets online in advance. At least you will be absolutely certain you can visit on the day you choose, and can get a slot for the Nasrid Palaces (visiting the Alhambra without seeing them would not be in any way the same). Of course there are lots of online agencies which offer tickets but I always...

  • Cathedral

    Sevilla Things to Do

    The only things that remain from the mosque built in the 12th century and replaced by the cathedral are the tower - Giralda - and the adjacent cloister, called Pateo de los Naranjos because it is all planted with orange trees. The Muslim origins can be clearly seen in one of its doors, called Puerta del Perdon.

    Málaga Things to Do

    In my first visit I went to the Alcazaba, almost forty years ago, and was not impressed; This time I decided to appreciate it from below, and found the image much more impressive. trying to read something about it, I found some pictures that don't match the poor idea of my first visit (hard restoration? closed sections in the old days?who knows?)....

    Benidorm Things to Do

    On my four visits to Benidorm I have seen very little crime. In fact, my most recent visit was the first time I had seen or experienced anything untoward. I was on Avenida Ibiza at 3am and as I passed three women leaning against the wall they asked me if I wanted sexual relations. My response was emphatically negative. One of them walked in front...

    Marbella is a new big city totally devoted to tourism, however, it keeps a small "island" of tradition, where the image of Andalucia was well preserved and maintained.

    Torremolinos Things to Do

    The centre of Torremolinos has two good beaches - La Carihuela and Bajondillo. The only visible difference is... location, side by side. The first time we stayed in Bajondillo, and, by commodity or by the first good impression, it was my natural preference in the second visit. It is wide, safe, and the restaurants in the sand a good place to eat.

  • Cathedral

    Cadiz Things to Do

    The jewel of the city of Cádiz is its cathedral - the Catedral Nueva looks particularly splendid from the waterfront. Its dome glitters like gold in the sunshine but in reality is made of yellow glazed tiles. In the crypt of the cathedral is a painting of one of Spain's premier composers - Manuel de Falla. He is buried in the crypt.

    Alicante Things to Do

    The basic sight of Alicante certainly is the sea. The beach is sandy. To bathe in April is still early. Therefore I have only admired an evening view at the sea. Lights of hotels and restaurants were romantically reflected in waves... You can watch my 4 min 26 sec Video Alicante part 2 out of my Youtube channel or here on VT.

    Toledo Things to Do

    The Alcázar (castle) was turned into a military museum during the Franco government. This means that you can not see the Alcázar from inside without visiting the military museum. As I do not like exhibitions of arms, I opted to skip it and admire the structure from outside. Its history goes back to the 3rd century when it was a Palace for a local...

Three very large rocks just came loose as I was moving down...

    When I visited Teruel, I enjoyed exploring the old town with its medieval buildings and, in particular, the Mudéjar architecture.

Of special importance are the...
