Spain is a beautiful country with so much to offer. In fact, deciding what to see and do while you are there can be overwhelming. When planning a trip, one way to organize your plans is to rally around a theme. Whether you are looking for a cultural, leisure or party vacation, a Spain holiday can offer whatever you desire.
Here are some ideas for theme holidays in Spain.
Spain’s arts culture is one of the best in the world. From Dali to Gaudi, a trip highlighting these gems will be one to remember forever.
The trip begins in Port Lligat, at the Salvador Dali Museum House. See where Dali’s inspiration began. Continue on to Figueres and Girona, and visit the Dali Theatre-Museum, which houses more than 1500 of his works of art. Then head over to the Castillo Gala Dalí Museum-House. In this medieval castle can be found Dali’s gifts to Gala, including his paintings and sculptures.
The next leg of the trip is in Barcelona. The works of Antoni Gaudi can be found throughout the city. His fanciful architecture is an amazing sight to behold. Some buildings to include in any tour are the Casa Batlló and Sagrada Familia. Also include a visit to the Park Guell.
Traveling for leisure is less about touring than finding a relaxing beach spot and setting up for a while. There is no shortage of these spaces in Spain. Blessed with a beautiful coastline and several islands, there is a place to lounge, rest, and rejuvenate for everyone.
On the mainland, any beach trip includes the Costas. Costa de Almeria in Andalusia offers everything from unspoiled coastlines, deserts, and natural parks in the east to tourist centers in the west. The southern village of Mojacar combines a beach holiday with old world charm.
Costa del Sol offers all kinds of leisure charms. From beaches and resorts to gorges, from farms and meadows to natural parks, there is something for everyone here.
Costa de la Luz offers beaches from the unspoiled to the large resort. Find what you are looking for on the Costas of mainland Spain.
For a completely different vibe, head to the Canary Islands. Find a big resort or a Robinson Crusoe experience.
For the traveler who loves a party, Ibiza is the place for you. Immortalized on stage and screen, in song and literature, Ibiza is the place to be. Anyone who’s anyone has been dancing in the famous clubs, some until the wee hours of the morning, the more intrepid until sunrise. The party doesn’t stop in the clubs, either. Resorts and beachfront areas get into the spirit as well.
Ibiza is the third largest of the Balearic Islands. As such, Ibiza offers incredible charm and natural wonders as well. So a partier who needs a break can check out the prairies, coastal charm, and protected nature areas on the island as well.
The themed trip is only one way to enjoy your time in Spain. Buen viaje.
