Spain Things to Do

  • Sagrada Familia

    Barcelona Things to Do

    A lot of the current construction work is happening inside so its a bit of a building site, but in a way it is interesting to be able to watch a bit of it happening. The columns inside are another example of Gaudi being influenced by nature as they are designed like trees with a long trunk and then thick branches at the top. My favourite thing...

    Madrid Things to Do

    Retiro Park is one of the top places I visited when in Madrid. With around 125 hectares of grounds to explore and numerous routes and walkways around the park, you will not get bored here. Many of the roads around the park are named after Latin American countries. I visited one Monday evening and spent around 2 hours walking around the park in a...

    Ibiza Things to Do

    To tell the truth - i was a kind of dissappointed: in my imagination it looked completely different - BUT there is no beach, only some stony rocks, the surrounding is by far not nice, the drinks are expensive... but what makes this spot so unique os the people, peacefully sitting there, drinking something, looking at the sun and listening to the...

    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:...

  • 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...

    Sevilla Things to Do

    The varieties of architectural styles in this palace are stunning. It is a must stop in Sevilla and a beautiful place to just wander and enjoy. Hopefully I can save you a little aggravation in seeing this site. I booked a tour through Feel the City Tours; while I had two other great experiences with them, I could have skipped their tour of...

    Majorca Island Things to Do

    It's the hell of a job driving downwards the coast to Calobra. And shall we say that the sights, upon arrival compensate the effort? Well... If you admire dramatic landscapes, yes. If you wanted just to see something different in the island... Yes. If you were expecting a very spectacular site... No. But, may I ask, spectacular, is not the way...

    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...

    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.

    Almuñécar Things to Do

    Almuncar's old town seemed to me to be divided into two parts. The streets in the lower, later, parts were steep but fairly straight and wide enough for e.g. carts (and now, some, for cars). They rise to a small flattish area, where you'll find the 17th century (1600s) Iglesia de la Encarnacion and, around the small-but-pretty Plaza de la...
