The centre of Spain

Madrid

The majestic city of Madrid sets itself apart from other capitals with its welcoming undercurrent and soulful, European vibes. It might not boast world-famous, esteemed landmarks, but its selling point is how it makes you feel when you are there.

Madrid’s fusion of larger-than-life, youthful nightlife with lazy, late (and good-value) lunches provides a great balance of excitement and relaxation. Whether you want a chilled afternoon filled with tapas or a late night in a flamenco theatre, Madrid will tick all the boxes. If you prefer lying in sun-baked parks and wandering through small cobbled alleyways, Madrid has these in abundance too.

Be aware, this landlocked city gets seriously hot in summer, and there is no easy escape to the beach. Look out for a hotel with a pool, so you can cool off after a day of sightseeing. Of course, make sure your rental car has air conditioning (and maybe even consider renting a convertible!)

The capital of catalonia

Barcelona

At the heart of Barcelona lies astounding architecture, unbeatable food and a welcoming soul. Not many European cities can boast the excitement of city life combined with chilled out beach vibes, and Barcelona achieves this mix effortlessly.

The green spaces and parks are unparalleled, and the many viewpoints – Bunkers del Carmel and Montjuïc Castle to name a few – are breathtaking.

Gaudi has left his mark across the city, and his creations are definitely not to be missed (the inside of the Sagrada Familia is perhaps the most impressive and unexpected sight of all). However, Picasso also spent a lot of time in the city, and the museum dedicated to his early works is really worth a visit.

Jaca

A jewel in the mountains

If you’re in the North of Spain, rent a car and follow the winding mountain roads to the stunning archaic town of Jaca. Hidden and protected by the Pyrenees, Jaca is a more unusual example of how the seasons can affect Spain. This village is perfectly suited to summer tourists; yet when snow descends upon Jaca, it metamorphosizes into a Spanish ski resort. Close to the French border, Jaca is built around a medieval fortress on the River Aragon. There are some astonishing sights to uncover, including the remarkable pentagonal citadel.
