Now that I’ve finished all the recap posts from our trip through Spain, I hope you’ve fallen just in love with the country as I did. It’s an incredible place and my love affair with Spain, I feel, has only just begun. Spain is one of those countries that you can’t quite get out of your mind after you visit and a place that offers so much for an amazing travel destination from being incredibly economical to gorgeous architecture. So in case you needed any more convincing, here at my top 5 amazing reasons to visit Spain.
Sangria, tortilla española, potatoes bravas, paella, Ibérico ham, manchego cheese, churros con chocolate…need I say more? The food was one of our major driving reasons behind booking a trip through Spain and it did not disappoint.
The Spanish people were some of the friendliest, most patient locals I’ve met while traveling. Always a smile on their face, always helpful when I couldn’t quite find the right word in Spanish, the locals were a huge favorite part of our trip.
Within the cities and along the routes we took as we trained throughout Spain, the landscape and scenery is absolutely breathtaking. From the coastline of Barcelona to the hilly tree groves of the South, this country is gorgeous beyond belief.
From bull fighting to Flamenco dancing, Spain is full of rich history and culture that is still keep very much alive today is so fantastic to explore.
One of my favorite parts of Spain, the architecture and design throughout the country is incredible. From the Moorish influence in the South to the ornate designs of Madrid’s buildings to the whimsical features of Barcelona…Spain’s diverse culture lends itself well to architecture and design.

You have me hooked. I want to visit Spain as soon as possible!
Such a wonderful country, I hope you can make it there sometime soon!
I love spain, the architecture is probably my favorite thing! i will say I didn’t have the best food experience (probably because I was way too cheap!)
Yes! Such cool unique architecture! And yes, that’s probably true on the food, I have heard about that from other people too that didn’t have a great experience!

Yes to the architecture!! You’ve convinced me already! 😉
Yes… amazing architecture! And so diverse throughout the country!
As if I needed more reasons!
Haha… well there’s some more for you anyways! 🙂
I was blown away by how kind the locals were during my recent visit to Spain. My travel buddy and I (a Dutch and an American) did not speak a lick of Spanish, and there behind the counter, the old man who served us our coffee each morning would just chuckle along and teach us some words. By the next day, he recognized us and began chatting in simple Spanish. That’s something I really wish would happen in Paris (where I live). 🙂
Totally! Some of the kindest people I’ve ever met while traveling!
My favorite country in the world! You’ve captured what there is to love about it well!
So glad! 🙂 It really is an amazing place!
