Spain

Sample seafood in the quaint towns and cities of this diverse country where you can explore an eclectic terrain featuring mountains, desert regions and coastal wonderlands.

Spain is a cultural haven of southern Europe. This hot-blooded country is the home of bull-fighting and tapas as well as countless pristine beaches and modern and sophisticated cities. Learn about Spain’s rich history and get a sense of its traditions in sports, dancing and cuisine.

The city of Barcelona is in many ways a separate entity from the rest of Spain. Understand its distinct Catalan culture with a trip to the city center. Appreciate its spectacular Gothic architecture. Gaze up at the unfinished basilica of the Sagrada Familia and admire Antoni Gaudí’s almost cartoonish, melted design.

Cross the northern part of Spain to reach the Basque city of Bilbao, which is known for the fascinating avant-garde architecture of the Guggenheim Bilbao museum. Visit the capital city of Madrid for its many cultural highlights, such as the Prado Museum. This gallery is known for its collection of Francisco de Goya’s works.

At the southern end of the country is the coastline from Costa del Sol to Costa Blanca. Consider a trip to Vera Playa, which includes a nudist resort hotel. Try watersports at Tarifa near the Straits of Gibraltar. Enjoy hot summers and mild winters with trips to the beaches of Marbella and Malaga.

A little northeast of the resort towns is the city of Granada, which features the Moorish palace of the Alhambra and the serene gardens of the Generalife. Head west to the eclectic city of Seville, which has the Plaza de España at its center. Watch a flamenco performance in the Triana neighborhood, which is said to be the source of this expressive dance.

This large country is in southwestern Europe, with Northern Africa just across the sea from its southern coast. It shares land borders with Portugal, Andorra and France. Fly to one of Spain’s many international airports across the country and get around by rail or domestic flights. Spain has a hot and feisty culture, with lively resorts and a dramatic topography.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Spain?

A: Many travellers like to use riding-share services or public transportation when they're holidaying in Madrid and Barcelona. It's a great way of avoiding expensive parking fees and having to navigate through challenging city traffic. But if you're planning to head out of town and explore the region of Cuenca del Henares or elsewhere, consider booking a set of wheels. Get your road trip adventure off to an awesome start by checking out our handy guide to Cheap Car Hire in Spain.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Spain?

A: International flights to Spain typically operate from one of these main airports:

  • Madrid (MAD-Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas): 10,970 international flights per month.
  • Barcelona (BCN-Barcelona Intl.): 9,697 international flights per month.
  • Malaga (AGP): 4,096 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Spain?

A: There's no shortage of choice when it comes to accommodation in Spain. The most popular places are apartments. But if that's not quite right for you, you can also choose from hotels, villas, budget hotels and much, much more.

Q: What does a Spain holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: Flights, wheels and somewhere to rest when the day's done — we have them all. All you need to do is work out how many of these you need. With Expedia, you can shape your trip to Spain exactly how you like it, with plenty of activities and experiences on offer to boot.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to Spain?

A: Did you know that Expedia handsomely rewards you simply for bundling your Flights, Hotels, Activities and more? Start putting together your perfect getaway and find out just how much you'll save by choosing a package. Spain, here you come!

Q: What are the best things to do in Spain?

A: If Madrid is on your travel agenda, you have loads of options. The most well-known include Royal Palace, Plaza de España and Parque Warner Madrid — when you see them up close, you'll soon discover why.

In Barcelona, a visit to Gran Teatre del Liceu, Placa de Catalunya and Circuit de Catalunya should be made a priority.

Last but not least, if you're only staying in Valencia, you'll be wanting to fit in as much exploring as you possibly can. Here, the local residents will steer you to Valencia Conference Centre, Bioparc Valencia Zoo and Plaza del Ayuntamiento.
