Forget the cheesy beach resorts and cheap sangria, Spain has a lot to offer the tourist, whether they’re looking for adventure or relaxation. The people have an evident passion for life, which is evident in the Spanish music, food and landscapes which will awaken your soul. Some of Spain’s lesser visited locations are the mountainous regions. The Pyrenees mountains, which mark the start of the Mediterranean region, are full of hiking trails, skiing opportunities and national parks. In the south of the country, the snow-topped Sierra Nevada mountains are a complete contrast to the sunny Andalusian region below them. Foodies will love the tapas bars, and the traditional favourites just as much as the many Michelin starred restaurants dotted around Spain. Culture hunters aren’t left out either. With creative spirits like Dali, Picasso and Gaudi all a product of Spain, it’s no surprise to see buildings like La Sagrada Familia Catholic church in Barcelona, showing both Art Nouveau and Gothic inspiration.
