Spain

SPAIN is a sovereign state located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. It is the only European country to have a border with an African country Morocco and its African territory accounts for nearly 5% of its population, mostly in the Canary Islands but also in Ceuta and Melilla.

Culturally, Spain is a Western country. Almost every aspect of Spanish life is permeated by its Roman heritage, making Spain one of the major Latin countries of Europe.

Spanish culture is marked by strong historic ties to Catholicism, which played a pivotal role in the country’s formation and subsequent identity. Spanish art, architecture, cuisine, and music has been shaped by successive waves of foreign invaders, as well as by the country’s Mediterranean climate and geography. The centuries-long colonial era globalised Spanish language and culture, with Spain also absorbing the cultural and commercial products of its diverse empire.

Paella is a traditional Spanish dish from Valencia.
Jamón serrano and jamón ibérico are dry-cured Spanish hams that are served in thin slices.
Tapas are a great Spanish food tradition consisting
of small dishes of different types of food, like appetizers
or snacks.
Tortilla española, an omelette-like potato dish fried
in olive oil and served as a tapa.

There are three different climate zones in Spain, due to its large size. Visitors can generally expect a Mediterranean climate, characterized by hot, dry summers and mild, rainy winters. The vast central plateau, or Meseta, has a more continental influenced climate with hot, dry summers and cold winters.

Best known among Spain’s folkloristic traditions are certainly Flamenco and bullfights. You will find bullfights indeed
throughout the country,
the most popular event perhaps being
the “Running of Bulls” during
the Sanfermines in Pamplona.
But bullfights are part and parcel
of any Fiesta.

Spain has been a profoundly
Catholic country for centuries,
and Catholicism was the official
religion for most of recent history until after the death of Franco. Church and state were separated briefly under both the First and Second Republics, but their lasting separation did not begin until the 1978 constitution took effect. Even though their numbers have grown, non-Catholics in Spain today probably number less than 2 percent of the populace. Under Franco, regulations concerning the practice of other religions relegated them to near invisibility even while they were not outlawed. Today non-Catholics practice openly.

It is the third most visited country by tourists.

Spanish language is one of the most spoken ones worldwide. It is actually on the third position with around 500 million people speaking it.

There are more than 8000 kilometers of beaches in Spain. And they are all so nice! That is one of the reasons why so many tourists enjoy visiting Spain.

The Reina Sofía Museum and the Prado Museum are 2 of the 20 most visited museums in the world. And they are in Madrid! Spain actually counts with a high artistic production with names such as Dalí, Picasso, Gaudí, el Greco, Goya or Velázquez.

The most visited monument is the Alhambra in Granada. It is one of the most beautiful constructions of the world and people want to become a witness of it. Our Parador de Granada is right on this world-known complex.

There are 44 World Heritage Sites named by UNESCO in Spain. It is the third country with so many World Heritage Sites, including castles, cities, cathedrals and so many other monuments.

45% of world production of Olive Oil takes place in Spain. It is the first country producing it and it has a great quality.

Catalonia

is an autonomous community of Spain, located on the northeastern extremity of the Iberian Peninsula. It is designated as a nationality by its Statute of Autonomy. Catalonia consists of four provinces: Barcelona, Girona, Lleida, and Tarragona. The capital and largest city is Barcelona, the second-most populated municipality in Spain and the core of the seventh-most populous urban area in the European Union.

Catalonia is a Spanish autonomous community with a high-level of self-government. Politics of Catalonia are primarily related to the autonomous Government of Catalonia (Generalitat de Catalunya) institutional system, including the Parliament of Catalonia, the President and the Executive Council.
Catalan politics also influences Spanish politics as a whole due to the presence of Catalan nationalist parties in the Spanish Parliament, whose political support is often required by any given winner of the Spanish general elections to form majorities. Convergence and Union has been described as being “long the region’s dominant political party”. Catalan politics is also noted, to a lesser extent, for the influence exerted by the Socialists’ Party of Catalonia on its sister major party, the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE).

There are four languages with official status in Catalonia: Catalan; Spanish, which is official throughout Spain; Aranese, a dialect of Occitan spoken in the Aran Valley; and Catalan Sign Language. Many other languages are spoken in Catalonia as a result of recent immigration from all over the world.
Catalan has enjoyed special status since the approval of the Statute of Autonomy of 1979 which declares it to be the language “proper to Catalonia”. Spanish had been the only official language for most of the period between the 18th century and 1975.

Historical monuments

Barri Gòtic

The Barri Gòtic, also known as the Gothic Quarter, contains a maze of ancient buildings dating back to medieval times. Roman ruins can also be found interspersed throughout the neighborhood’s bustling plazas. The Palau de la Generalitat, headquarters of the Catalan government, is tucked away here as well. The Gothic Quarter stretches to the east of La Rambla Avenue in the Old City. According to Frommer’s, this area is one of Barcelona’s most popular tourist districts.

Monument a Colom

The Monument a Colom, or Christopher Columbus Monument, is located in Barcelona’s Old City district. This lofty statue measures 200 feet and sits at the end of La Rambla Avenue. The monument marks the spot where the famed explorer Columbus disembarked from his ship onto Spanish soil in 1493 after discovering the new world in America. According to Fodor’s Travel Guide, a small observation deck at the top of the monument offers panoramic views of the city and sea. It can be reached by elevator from the entrance on the harbor side of the monument. Expect to pay a minor entrance fee.

Arc del Triomf

The Arc del Triomf is a red-brick arch built by the architect Josep Vilaseca. It was put in place as the entrance for the Universal Exposition of 1888. The Arc del Triomf resembles the famous archways of ancient Rome. The designs on the sides of the arch commemorate the Spaniard Jaume I El Conqueridor’s conquest of the Moors in Mallorca in the year 1229 AD. Visitors can find the arch between the streets of Passeig de Lluís Companys and Passeig de Sant Joan at the foot of the promenade connecting to the Park of the Ciutadella. This attraction lies on the border of Barceloneta and Port Olimpic, two seaside districts in the northeast section of the city.

Torre de Collserola

Also of interest is the Torre de Collserola. The Collserola Tower was erected in 1992 for the Olympic games hosted in Barcelona that year. This looming tower houses an observation deck, as well as a restaurant. Fodor’s Travel Guide states that this monument is one of the best pieces of contemporary architecture in the city.

La Sagrada Familia

Frommer’s Travel Guide recommends La Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudi’s incomplete masterpiece, as one of the top landmarks in this Catalan city. Construction on this surreal cathedral started in 1882 and stopped when Gaudi died in 1926, leaving some of the interior unfinished. Four towers shoot up over the building, complete with intricately-carved spires. It’s a bizarre monument featuring traditional Gothic design along with a hefty touch of
Art-Nouveau and fantastical symbolism.

Park Guell

Park Guell is another master project – Gaudi. This park was supposed to be a resting place for the higher spheres of Barcelona. Amazingly architecture, vegetation and views. The lizard standing at the entrance to Park Güell is the most photographed attraction in Barcelona. There is also a Gaudí Museum available for visitors at the park for a fee.
