Spain’s radically different conquerors brought radically different influences to this country, shaping its unique modern day culture. Occupied by Iberians, Celts, Basques, Phoenicians and Greeks among others, it was conquered by the Romans, then by the Germanic Suebi, then by the Byzantines, and then the Moors, until they were vanquished by the Castile-Aragon forces that shaped modern Spain. No wonder Spain is home to 46 recognised World Heritage Sites.
Spain is the most visited country in Europe, with millions of tourists thronging there to enjoy the plethora of unique experiences it offers.
If you are an art lover, take a trip to the museum and check out the works of Velazquez, Picasso, and Goya. Or if you want real adventure, run with the bulls in Pamplona! If crazy messy fun is your thing, engage in a tomato fight during La Tomatina! Learn how to do the flamenco, or attend the Sonar and Benicassim music festivals each summer. And of-course Spain is a veritable paradise for foodies with its amazing seafood and local soups and stews. Spanish bars serve delicious squid, octopus, and mushroom tapas along with gallons of local red wine – accompanied by fresh crusty bread dipped in olive oil! Or, you can just relax and enjoy a lazy siesta on one of Spain’s 8000 beaches under the warm Spanish sun…
