Spain Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 92%, Spain sits at the top - with Italy - as the top European travel destination (according to PlanetHop!). The main question you face is what Spain doesn't have, because it pretty much ticks every single box of interest for the average PlanetHopper! So, let the roll call begin. When it comes to events and festivals, you've got the Running of the Bulls and the La Tomatina Festival, the world's biggest tomato fight. World famous icons can be summarised bu Sagrada Família, a building that has been under construction for over 125 years - and it's still only half done! How about museums? When you've got arguably the world's best art museum in the Guggenheim in Bilbao, there's not really much more you need to say. When you move onto the beaches, what better place can there be than Ibiza, where you can rock to the sound of the world's ultimate music scene? With all of this, we still haven't even mentioned Seville, tapas, skiing the Pyrenees or Valencia; but at this point I think you get the idea. Spain rocks!
