The magical country of Spain
If you are passionate, sophisticated and love the good life, then Spain is the right holiday destination for you. Spain is an extremely diverse country although in some ways it is also a stereotype come to life. Life courses through the streets and it produces in you a feeling that here anything can happen. In Spain music is the soul of the country, the people love fine food, while there are the wild landscapes to enjoy while celebrating all good things in life.
Spain is especially interesting for art lovers who can revel in the windswept Roman ruins, powerful looking cathedrals and incomparable specimen of Islamic architecture. All these buildings speak of a country where great civilisations rose, fell and left behind their indelible mark. In more recent times Spain came into the limelight due to rebellious and yet brilliant people like Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso and Antoni Gaudi. This is one country where you will find grand monuments from the past coexisting with modern architecture which are both daring and original.
Then again there is the diverse landscape of the country which stirs the soul. You can explore the beautiful mountain ranges of the Pyrenees and the Picos De Europa, along with the snowcapped Sierra Nevada which rises up from the sun blanched plains of Andalucia. These mountain ranges are great for adventure lovers and those who love to hike in the midst of nature. Then there are the natural opposites like the beautiful cliffs of the Atlantic northwest of Spain which are offset by the lovely coves of the Mediterranean. Throughout the country there are quaint villages which sit atop hills, huddling in valleys and clinging to coastal outcrops.
Spain is also a culinary feast for food lovers because food and wine are a national obsession here. Spanish food is known for its deceptive simplicity, immense variety and the traditional recipes handed down through generations are extremely delicious.
