I cannot deny that it was very difficult for me to prepare this article. Choose the 10 cities The most recommended in Spain is complicated, and not precisely because they are scarce. There are so many that could be in the ranking that I have had to rule out more than one city that I would definitely recommend traveling to.
As you can see, there are not only big cities. There are also other cities with less population that deserve to be among those chosen for many reasons.
Barcelona is the city that all foreigners have in mind. That is why it is one of the most tourists receives worldwide year after year. The sea, its beautiful architecture, its emblematic monuments, its gastronomy… It is difficult to resist the charms of the Barcelona.
The capital of Spain not only shines for being the capital. It also does it for its parks, for its historical buildings, for its markets, for its hidden cafes or for all the cultural heritage it houses.
I traveled to Valencia with not too high expectations and returned with the feeling of having been in an incredible place. his historical Center It is very beautiful and you rarely see yourself as in a big city full of avenues. On the contrary. You get to have the feeling of being in a huge town with endless corners that catch you.
Seville has something special, as the song says. Anyone who sets foot in the Andalusian capital can attest to this. La Giralda, the Torre del Oro, the Real Alcázar of Seville, the emblematic Plaza España, the singular neighborhood of Triana, the cathedral of Seville ...Impossible to get bored!
What a picture, right? An aerial view of the La Concha beach it is enough to convince the tourist that they have gone to a travel agency in search of a new getaway. San Sebastián is a modern city that can boast of having one of the most beautiful beaches in Spain. And not only that, but its gastronomy is one of the most renowned on the old continent.
The Alhambra in Granada, the main attraction of the city, aspired to be one of the 7 new wonders of the modern world and it could be perfectly. It is a magical place that you must know, the same that can be said of the rest of the places in this city that preserves a valuable cultural heritage.
Toledo is a walled city. It is since Roman times, although most of the stones that are preserved today are of Arab origin. In fact, the wall has had to be rebuilt on several occasions. From the "city of three cultures" (Muslim, Jewish and Christian) you will like everything. A walk through its streets is like a walk through history.
Santiago de Compostela
Santiago de Compostela is a city where many pilgrims arrive who have completed the Santiago's road. Its cathedral, in addition to the four squares that surround it (Obradoiro, Quintana, Inmaculada and Praterias) are a must-see.
Burgos, the land of the Cid Campeador, was the capital of Castilla for just under 500 years. Its beautiful Gothic cathedral is a World Heritage Site and is probably the point of interest, although it is also worth visiting the Museum of Human Evolution and to the Atapuerca deposits, which are only 10 kilometers away.
Salamanca, the university city par excellence, is usually undervalued. Many buildings shine with their own light because they are made of sandstone, a material that is extracted from nearby quarries. It is known as «The Golden City»And has been a university student since 1218. You cannot miss its Baroque-style Plaza Mayor, where hundreds of students gather every day to eat and sing.
