If you have been put off the idea of holidays to Spain because you don’t really fancy the beach then you might be interested to learn about some other things you can do while you are there. The sandy stuff is popular with most tourists but as we will see, it is far from the only attraction here.
Explore the Towns and Cities
Even if you are planning on taking your holidays to Spain in a coastal resort you should still have lots of interesting towns and cities within your reach. Many of these are modern and thriving while others appeared to have been trapped in time. You will definitely get more of a feel for the authentic Spain by moving away from the touristy resorts, and you will find interesting architecture, great food and lots to do. Madrid and Barcelona are obviously the big names but Valencia, Granada, Seville and Cadiz are just a few of the intriguing places you can visit.
Enjoy the Art and Festivals
You may be surprised at just how much you can squeeze into holidays to Spain. If you like art and music then seeing a flamenco show should be one of your top priorities. You could also take a look to see what other types of show are on offer during your stay. The Spanish love their festivals and if you are going to be taking holidays to Spain during the summer months then there should be something interesting on near where you are staying. Some of the top festivals are completely unique and involve the likes of running through the town with bulls or even the whole city getting involved in tomato fights.
Eat the Food
The reputation of Spanish cuisine has grown enormously in the last few years. There are now excellent restaurants to be found all over the country, and many of the traditional recipes have been given a trendy, designer edge. Of course, if you prefer to stick to the kind of food you would find at home then you will find that the British oriented resorts will be happy to serve you a British breakfast which keeps you going all day.
You can find the right kind of holidays to Spain for you no matter what you prefer to do when you get away.
