Spain is a country bursting with charm and culture. Home to a clutch of undeniably beautiful landscapes and buzzing cities, the country has long been drawing visitors from around the world.

From the stunning architecture of Barcelona to the miles of white sand beaches found on the Costa del Sol, Spain really does have something to offer any traveler.

It’s not just gorgeous scenery and fascinating culture on offer in Spain, as the country is also home to some of Europe’s most exclusive and exciting luxury properties. The potential for high-end travel experiences is uncapped in Spain, meaning you can easily move from one sumptuous resort to another.

Without a doubt, one of Spain’s most popular travel destinations is Barcelona. A city known for its art, architecture and fashion, Barcelona is a must-visit on any trip to Spain thanks to its intoxicating mix of culture, entertainment and world-class sightseeing. Barcelona’s streets are defined by Gaudi – the iconic artist responsible for the city’s trademark Catalan Modernist architecture.

If busy Barcelona doesn’t quite satisfy your cultural cravings, consider a trip to arty Madrid. The country’s capital is a bastion of history and culture, featuring a collection of world-renowned museums and galleries that showcase Spain’s most well-known works of art.

Travel Information

At Out Of Office, Spain has long been one of our most popular destinations, for both European and US-based travelers. The capital city of Barcelona is as vibrant and buzzing as they get, with lots to do and see regardless of your travel interests. The city is littered with the maximalist architectural work of the famous artist Gaudi and after a long day of exploring, what better way to unwind than by heading to the beach to catch some rays and take a refreshing dip in the sea?

Besides the cosmopolitan bustle of Barcelona, Spain has many fantastic cities waiting to be discovered. Madrid, with its lively atmosphere and historic center, offers a more culturally stimulating experience whereas a trip to Seville will give you the unique chance to glance into the past, with its authentic architecture, quaint cafes, and hidden historic gems. Seville has both personality and style – it’s a place you really must visit.

If you’d like to party then Spain is also an unbeatable destination. Combining Barcelona with the gay-nightlife capital of Sitges makes for an excellent itinerary. Sitges is just 40 minutes from Barcelona by train, and as well as partying, you can unwind and immerse yourself in a bounty of fascinating culture.

Spain has a long, varied history. It was the most powerful country in Europe in the 16th century. The great Age of Exploration led to the discovery of the New World, much of which was initially colonized by the Spanish conquistadors. Spain is also the birthplace of many great writers and artists, not least Cervantes and Lorca. Oh, and did we mention Picasso?

Spanish law has a number of protections for LGBTQ+ people that allow queer travellers to travel within the country with peace of mind and freedom. There are fantastic gay scenes in the cities of Madrid and Barcelona, and even the smaller destinations are very accepting.

Thing to do in Spain

Explore The Sagrada Familia

Located in the heart of Barcelona, The Sagrada Familia is a world-renowned basilica that has been attracting visitors for centuries This iconic structure is a must-see for anyone interested in art or architecture. Although it is still under construction, those who make the journey can explore both the interior and exterior of the building, appreciating the towering columns and intricate stained glass windows. The Sagrada Familia’s façade is adorned with intricate carvings and sculptures that are a sight to behold. Whether you’re a history enthusiast or simply looking for a beautiful photo opportunity, the Sagrada Familia is an unmissable destination in Spain. Its estimated completion date is in 2026, so make sure to add it to your travel itinerary.

Tour the Alhambra

The Alhambra, a palace and fortress complex located in Granada, is a must-see destination for travelers in Spain. The intricate details and stunning beauty of the Nasrid Palaces are a highlight of the tour, featuring intricate tile work and stunning courtyards, but visitors can also enjoy the breathtaking city views offered at the Alcazaba fortress. The Generalife gardens provide a peaceful oasis filled with fountains, flowers, and fruit trees. Visitors should come prepared with comfortable shoes, as the tour involves a lot of walking and stairs. And don’t forget your camera – every moment of this unforgettable experience is worth capturing.

Sample tapas in Madrid

When it comes to Spanish cuisine, tapas is a veritable must-try. These small plates are perfect for sharing and offer a great way to sample a variety of dishes without filling up. Madrid, in particular, is known for its vibrant food scene and is a great place to try traditional tapas. The La Latina neighborhood is especially popular for its numerous bars and restaurants serving up delicious bites. Some classic tapas dishes to try include patatas bravas (spicy potatoes), croquetas (fried balls of ham and cheese), and jamón ibérico (cured ham). And of course, don’t forget to pair your tapas with a refreshing glass of sangria or a cold beer – the perfect way to beat the heat on a hot summer day in Madrid.
