Why You Should Travel to Spain
Did you know that Spain gets around 300 days of sun each year? Of course, not all regions are filled with sun, but the shores are usually warm throughout the year. This is due to the mild Mediterranean climate that makes the coast of Spain into a Paradise on Earth.
So, if your winter is already starting and you reminisce about the hot summer days that just passed, book a trip to Spain. It’s easy to find affordable accommodation and you can learn about trips that matter online (so you’ll be prepared when you get there).
The Restaurants are World-Famous
Spain holds the record when it comes to the ‘best restaurant in the world’ award. In 2018, the famous El Celler de Can Roca from Girona placed second on World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, but it used to be first. And before this, Ferran Adria’s legendary elBulli used to be number one.
So, if you’re looking to spend your money in high-end restaurants, Spain is the perfect location. But you don’t have to break the bank to taste the work of a true culinary genius! Spain is famous for its food and culinary diversity and you’ll surely find plenty of affordable dishes to love.
Speaking of restaurants, you have the chance to visit the oldest restaurant in the world that’s continuously running since 1725. Casa Botín is situated in Madrid and besides being famous for its age, it’s also one of the locations where the painter Goya worked (as a waiter) in his time.
But all these restaurants are famous because Spanish food is one of the best in the world. It is tasty, healthy, and incredibly diverse so even the most common taverna will serve food that’s better than most expensive restaurants all over the world could serve.
There is no wonder Spaniards are happy, laid back people! After having a delicious meal, they get to wash it down with a wide variety of wines produced in the country. Spain is perfectly located for raising grape vines, which is why there are lots of wineries all over the country. Furthermore, each region produces a specific type of wine, so you have:
- the Rioja region wines,
- the cava from Catalonia,
- the Moscatel (a sweet wine) from Malaga,
- the sherry from Jerez de la Frontera.
Of course, Spaniards also prepare combinations of drinks, but you should know that sangria is only for tourists. If you truly want the authentic taste of Spain, stick to wines!
Lots of Things to See
Starting with Roman ruins (lots of them) and ending with an Egyptian temple (the Temple of Debod, in Madrid), Spain is sprinkled with cool things to see. Many must-see cities of the world such as Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, Seville, Valencia, and others are located in Spain. Not to mention, there are several of UNESCO’s World Heritage sites here!

But you must be warned: Spain can’t be seen in one visit! You must come here every year, several years in a row to cover everything this beautiful country has to offer. But don’t worry; you’ll want to come back because there is a special charm about Spain that will keep calling at you from over the seas and oceans.
Game of Thrones was Filmed in Spain
The world-famous movie, adored by millions and acclaimed by critics, filmed several sequences in Spain. The producers considered the landscape and the castles a fantastic fit for their story, and nowadays they are also famous for being depicted in the movie.
So, if you’re not interested in the cultural heritage, fantastic food, and good wine, maybe the idea of getting so close to your favorite Game of Thrones characters will have you take a trip on Spanish lands.
