Taking in Spain's culinary delights
Spanish food is famous the world over, and for good reason. Having inspired many modern international gastronomies, including Latin American and even Filipino dishes, a good meal is at the core of any celebration in Spain. As you might expect, regional variations exist, but there are several staples you can find virtually everywhere in the country. Paella is a hearty rice-based stew that's often adorned with indulgent seafood including lobster and mussels.
Tapas-style dining allows groups of friends to share lots of small dishes such as patatas bravas (spicy potato squares), meatballs, and croquetas filled with cheese or meats. Regional specialties include puntillitas, which is fried baby squid found around Seville, and crema catalana, a variation on crème brûlée popular in Barcelona. Spain is also famous for its superb wines of every variety.
Discovering the history and culture of Spain
Spanish history is arguably one of the most fascinating in all of Europe, having incorporated dramatic turns of fortune across its former empire. What's more, its contributions to the worlds of art, cinema, architecture and many other disciplines cannot be understated. Even in the resorts better known for their beaches, such as Torremolinos or Málaga, you'll find ancient castles tucked among hills, or museums detailing the local areas' histories.
Of course, the larger cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, and the former capital Seville are among the best for learning about Spain's culture. See living history at the Royal Palace of Madrid, still the official residence of the Spanish Royal Family. Gaudí's still-unfinished Sagrada Família Cathedral in Barcelona is one of the world's most famous with its numerous spires dominating the city skyline. Meanwhile, you can also visit the Real Alcázar, another home of the Royal Family in Seville and the setting of Dorne's palace in Game of Thrones.
Heading to Spain as a family
Spain is also one of the most popular destinations in the world for family vacations. With a seemingly endless choice of golden beaches and resorts located close to water parks and kid-friendly museums, there's a lot to keep everyone happy. Costa Caleta on the isle of Fuerteventura is known for its relaxed ambience, but there's still plenty to do including mini golf and superb nearby dining facilities. The beaches to the north of Menorca are known to be quieter than the busier south coast, and so also suit families looking to escape to the coast in calm surroundings.
Back on the mainland, Murcia is located a little inland, but still close to the beaches around Alicante. It offers a world of outdoor adventure among the dazzling pine forests of Sierra Espuña. For introducing children to the culture of Spain, Bilbao is another excellent choice among the larger cities. Located in the north, it's home to gems such as the modern Guggenheim Museum, which is a marvel in itself and designed in the shape of a giant metal fish. The Basque Museum will introduce you to the history and culture of this fascinating part of the country, too.
Evening entertainment in Spain
The nightlife scene in Spain is varied depending on where you are, but always has an emphasis on good times with friends as you party well into the night. At the coastal resorts and the islands of, say, Majorca, you'll find many vibrant neighborhoods almost completely devoted to bars and clubs. These are excellent places to make friends from all over the world on vacation. In the cities, you'll have a chance to party like the locals, and get into the swing of the Spanish way of life.
As dinners tend to happen late and restaurants stay open so long, many don't head to the bars and clubs until well after midnight. If you're looking for a calmer night of entertainment, smaller bars will often give you an appreciation for an authentic, casual night out in Spain, especially if a soccer game is on! Madrid in particular is excellent for high culture such as opera at the Teatro Real or performances at the Ballet Nacional. Traditional evening entertainment such as Flamenco shows are another must-do on vacation here. You can check them out across the country, such as in the Sants Montjuic neighborhood of Barcelona.
