Tourist Places To Visit In Spain

7 mins. read

A country known for its diverse and vivid landscape, incomparable architecture and undying love for food, Spain tends to grow on those who visit it. As a nation taking pride in its colourful culture and reveling in the simple pleasures of life, Spain is a must-visit destination for every travel, culture, and art enthusiast in the world.

If we are honest, the best places to visit in Spain are so mesmerizing that they give off the impression of a romantic dream. Without further ado, let us divulge the names of these places to visit in Spain:



This is the place, of course, to kick off your Spain vacation. The capital city of Madrid is one of the most significant places to visit in Spain owing to a number of reasons. The third most populated city in Europe, Madrid has an essence that is cosmopolitan in every sense. While its royal palaces and wide boulevards give off an old-world elegance, as you move up to neigbourhoods like Lavapiés, you begin realizing how fashion-forward and trendy this city is.

Madrid is home to the Royal Palace, the biggest palace in Europe terms of area covered. There is also the Golden Triangle of museums where you can witness the works of some of the world’s most renowned artists, for instance, Picasso’s Guernica. At night, the city transforms into an energetic fiesta. For anyone looking forward to experiencing the nightlife of Madrid, Teatro Kapital is a place to be.



Another huge favorite with visitors in Spain, Barcelona is the city of architectural marvels, stunning Mediterranean beaches, and lip-smacking food. Truth be told, it is the city to be in for any history or architecture buff. La Manzana de la Discordia is a block wherein you will find structures by Barcelona’s four most significant Modernista architects, including Antoni Gaudi’s Casa Batlló. Next, you can visit Barri Gòtic, a neighborhood in the city that’s characterized by Gothic architecture. If you are looking for a ready-list of places to see in Spain in the Catalonia region, then that must include Tibidabo Amusement park, Park Güell, and Carretera de les Aigües.


San Sebastian

A charming city on the Bay of Biscay, San Sebastian is a heaven for food lovers. Pintxos in San Sebastian is a Basque version of tapas (small portions of any Spanish cuisine) and includes morsels of food on bread crusts. The bars of Old Town in this city often lay out pintxos on their bar tops for people to see what their offerings are.

Another great reason that makes San Sebastian one of the best places to visit in Spain is the fact that it has an array of Michelin star restaurants; now that is no easy feat! Beach loving families can make the most of some sandy fun on Concha Beach which is a shell-shaped cove, while Zurriola beach presents great prospects for surfing.



Located in Southern Spain, Seville is the Andalusian capital that despite being quaint is highly exuberant.  Popular for its flourishing Flamenco culture, Seville offers tourists a lot to see and experience. You can wander through the narrow streets of Old Town soaking in the city’s vibe, or take a refreshing stroll through the Guadalquivir river esplanade. You can also visit one of the flamenco bars in the city to experience this dramatic, melancholy art form, or head straight to Orillas de Triana or Los Gallos across the river to catch a flamenco show.

Other popular tourist places in Seville, Spain that you must not miss include Alćazar, a well-preserved Moorish palace that dates back to the first century, and Metropol Parasol which is a huge wooden structure located in La Encarnacíon square.



Situated at the foothills of Sierra Nevada, Granada is an ancient city recognized for snow-capped peaks, ancient fortress, and cobbled serpentine streets. Granada is also popular for having served as the last holdout during the Reconquista for Islamic Spain. Alhambra, a stunning fort-palace complex considered as the zenith of Moorish architecture, is also located here. Within this notable monument, you will get to witness some key features like intricate fountains, elegant mosaics, and magnificent horseshoe arches which also cover up most of the city. Sacromonte, a region also known as the gypsy quarter where white caves cling to hillsides, is another top place to see in Granada, Spain.



Another popular tourist place in Spain, Valencia is a city that elegantly mixes the two factors of archaic and contemporaneity. Paella, one of the most loved dishes in Spain is believed to have originated here. This coastal city is also home to the revolutionary City of Arts and Science, a structure that attracts a lot of tourists to Valencia. You can also visit Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències, a huge, futuristic complex that is the brainchild of architects Félix Candela and Santiago Calatrava. To get a better peep into the city’s culture, make sure you stop by at the Ruzafa district where all the cool kids hang out.



Regarded as the most significant city in the Middle Ages during the Moorish rule, Cordoba is among the best places to see in Spain mainly because of the world-famous Mezquita. Also referred to as the Grand Mosque of Cordoba, it is among the greatest Islamic structures in the world which display the sophisticated and developed cultures that had thrived around a millennium before. Despite serving as the city’s cathedral at present, the Grand Mosque still retains its Islamic designs.

Old Town in Cordoba, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is another charming place to visit here. Featuring fascinating architectures and pretty cobbled streets, Old Town is home to Cordoba’s Roman Bridge. Wandering around on the streets, you will come across hard-to-miss conventional aspects of the city, like golden-stone buildings, wrought-iron balconies, overhanging trees, potted plants, and lush interior patios, to name a few.

Immersed in rich history, Spain is a country that lives in the present. You simply cannot tour to this lively nation; you have to feel its soul to know España as a whole.  Book Spain tours with Veena World today!
