Spain is one of the most popular holiday destinations in all of Europe. Hot summers, white beaches and the relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere attract thousands of tourists each season. But with more than 300 sunshine days a year in parts of the country, this is a perfect place to explore beyond the tourist centers, in search of the other Spain: rich in culture, cuisine and countryside. Buzzing cities like cosmopolitan Barcelona and Madrid, filled to the brim with contemporary art and architecture; white-washed villages sprinkled across the south, where time seems to be standing still; and not to forget enchanting towns like Seville and Granada, where the remnants of their Moorish past can be admired on almost every corner and Fiestas, Tapas and Flamenco are very much part of day-to-day life.
