Best places to visit in Spain

  • Barcelona: This is one of the most popular cities in Spain for visitors. Barcelona is home to incredible history, culture, and amazing architecture. The highlights of what to see here are La Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, and Casa Mila, all designed by the famous artist Gaudi. When you’re done sightseeing, stroll down La Rambla, the main street for shopping, or head to the beach.  
  • Madrid: The capital and the largest city in Spain, Madrid is full of personality. Visit the lively Plaza Mayor, the main square. You’ll also want to check out El Retiro Park and the Royal Palace of Madrid. For shopping and amazing food, head to the Gran Via. 
  • Mallorca: This is the perfect destination for beachgoers and outdoor adventurers. Mallorca is home to the Drach Caves, an underground tunnel of interconnected caves. You’ll also want to see the lighthouse at Cap de Formentor and the Castell de Bellver for panoramic views of the island and the coast. And finally, check out the beautiful beach of Calo d’es Moro. 

Summer 2021 in Spain

Spain is an incredible summer destination. It gets hot, so you’ll want to take measures to stay cool. With its beautiful islands and beaches, you’ll want to rent a convertible to enjoy the sea breeze as much as you can. Summer is also the perfect time to head to places like Ibiza to explore the scenery and the nightlife with ease. If you’re more of a city-dweller, check out Barcelona, as the city comes alive with culture and events in the heat of the summer. 

What to Do in Spain in Summer 2021

In addition to the beaches that are necessary to cool down in the hot Spanish summer, there are historical and artsy things to see and do. The summer months are the high season in Spain as people flock here from other European countries for the beaches and culture. In Madrid you can take in the Veranos de la Villa, the music and performing arts festival, throughout July, while in Cordoba you will find the Festival de la Guitarra, which celebrates the guitar. The famous Running of the Bulls takes place in Pamplona in the summer. And did we mention the beaches? You can fly to Mallorca as much of Europe does, or hit the sand near Barcelona or Seville. Or head to Malaga and take in the Andalusian fair, La Feria de Málaga, in August!
