Its good weather and many varied attractions make it ideal for year-round vacationing. Spain is the home of diverse cultures and traditions.

This guide gets you going with info on:

  • The three major areas: Northern Spain, including Barcelona, the Costa Brava, and the Basque Country; Central Spain, including Madrid and Castile, and Southern Spain, including Andalusia, Seville, Cordoba, and Granada
  • How to get the best seats at a bullfight
  • Strolling Barcelona’s La Rambia, a vibrant street parade, or tripping along on a tavern and tapas crawl
