So you’ve finally managed to save up enough of your hard earned cash to take the family away for a week or two in the sun; good for you! Holidays aren’t just about having a break from work, they also provide much needed distraction, opportunities for education, and psychologists even claim they’ll make you live longer.

If you’ve come across this article, you’re probably trawling the internet looking for the perfect location. Well, look no further. Although most respectable people often turn their noses up at the thought of a holiday in Spain (mainly thanks to the ITV show Benidorm), in truth, this European hotspot is home to some amazing sights that are certainly not to be missed. It’s not all English breakfasts and bars playing reruns of Only Fools And Horses you know.

Anyway, if you’re still to be convinced, let me take a moment to tell you about some of the really cool areas you could visit.

Toledo

Right up until the 16th century Toledo was the main trading capital, and the actual capital city of the country we now call Spain. Perched on a mountaintop, the area used to be so diverse that it was often referred to as “the city of three cultures” thanks to its many Jew, Christian, and Muslim residents. Here you’ll find a vast array of impressive architecture that dates back all the way to the reign of the Roman Empire.

Seville

Known throughout the entire globe for it’s beautiful building designs, hip jazz festivals, and thumping nightlife, Seville is the largest and most vibrant city within the community of Andalusia. For those who really want to see something special, make sure you don’t forget to visit Plaza De Espana. This marvel of 1920’s architecture was originally built to host the 1929 ibero-american Exposition World’s Fair, but now it’s home to a few shops and many local government offices. Still, it’s an impressive sight resembling something you might expect from Rome.

Nerja

For those who’ve enjoyed holidays in the Costa Del Sol, and especially Malaga in the past, you really should check out the little known seaside municipality of Nerja. A little less full-on than some of the surrounding areas, Nerja still has over 400 top class restaurants and several small, secluded beaches. Also, if you liked the idea of visiting the Plaza De Espana in Seville, you’re in for a real treat. Nerja is home to some of the most impressive architecture in the whole of Spain.

You can usually find an apartment to rent in Nerja for a very reasonable price, so avoid hotels if you choose to visit here. Never has an area so appealing been overlooked by so many.

Barcelona

I don’t think I really need to “big” Barcelona up too much. You all know how astonishingly angelic the area is. Sufficed to say, you should definitely head on down there.

Madrid

Spain’s current capital city, and a place renowned for it’s sizzling nighttime exploits, Madrid is truly a wonder to behold. Home to many well respected universities, this city attracts visitors from all over the world. Here you’ll find many theatres and art museums that are certain to get your cultural juices flowing. So, if you work in a job that requires you to be creative, Madrid really could be the most suitable place for you to visit, as nothing recharges the batteries like a few hours with some of the most inspirational artists who’ve ever lived.

So that’s it my friends. I hope you now feel a little bit more confident about booking your holiday in Spain. Like I said earlier, there is a lot more to this country than meets the eye.
