Must-Dos in Spain

Spain is a beautiful place full of adventure. There are so many wonderful things to do and see. Below is a list of some things I consider to be must-dos when visiting in Spain:

  • The Alhambra: The Alhambra is a gorgeous Moor-influenced palace in the city of Granada, Spain. It has beautiful gardens and spectacular architecture.
  • Eat Tapas: Tapas can best be compared to American appetizers in size. However, rather than ordering tapas and then a meal, it is common to jump from place to place ordering only tapas and a drink at each place. It’s typical to go to 3-5 different tapas bars a night.
  • The Sagrada Familia: This cathedral, located in Barcelona, Spain, is one of Antoni Gaudí’s many architectural phenomenons. Not only is it an incredible piece of work architecturally, it also bestows an overwhelming feeling of peace to all that enter.
  • A Flamenco Show: These dances are heavily engrained into the Spanish culture and tell a story with every move. It makes for a perfect evening to go to a show, order some tapas and drinks, and sit back and take it all in.
  • Eat Paella: This typical Spanish dish is comprised of either chicken or seafood (or both), rice, and vegetables.
