The Coronavirus pandemic may have put travel plans on hold for the moment, but being at home may have sparked thoughts of all the places that you would like to visit when restrictions are lifted. Planning a holiday is always exciting and deciding where to go is one of the best parts. 


If you are hoping to escape to a warmer climate without needing to take a long haul flight, then a trip to Spain is the perfect solution. Spain has some fantastic places to visit and offers something for everyone from beautiful beaches to fascinating historical sights. Here are some of the best cities to visit on a trip to Spain:


Marbella


If you are hoping to enjoy a glamorous Spanish getaway, then Marbella is an ideal choice. Marbella’s beautiful beach and Alameda Park make the perfect places to relax in the sunshine. Take a wander through the old town, and you will find beautifully kept streets dotted with restaurants. Make your way to the marina packed with superyachts and take in the incredible sight of the bronze sculptures created by the renowned surrealist, Salvador Dalí along Avenida del Mar. You may even get so used to the glamorous lifestyle that you want to snap up a luxury apartment marbella and make yourself a permanent home in this upmarket resort!


Madrid


If you love exploring cities, then Madrid offers lots of cultural treats for you to discover. Madrid’s fantastic selection of museums is one of the city’s big highlights. Madrid is home to The Prado, Reina Sofia, and Thyssen-Bornemisza art museums, and the National Archaeological Museum. So, Spain’s capital city is sure to be a big hit if you are an art enthusiast.


To soak up the city’s cosmopolitan vibe, head to Gran Vía, Mercado San Miguel, and Plaza Mayor to shop, eat, and see some of Madrid’s most beautiful architecture.


Barcelona


A visit to Barcelona allows you to enjoy the best of a beach holiday and city break in one trip. Barcelona is a beautiful city and a must-visit destination for anyone interested in architecture and art. Much of Barcelona’s iconic architecture is the work of artist and architect Antoni Gaudí. Gaudí’s most famous work is the Sagrada Familia, an incredible gothic-style church which after being started around 150 years ago remains to be completed.


To get a feel for the city, take a walk down Las Ramblas to grab a bite to eat and to see street performers in action. If you continue along Las Ramblas, you will come to the cosmopolitan waterfront and statue of Christopher Colombus.


Traditionally, Spain may have been known for its beach holidays, but there is so much more to this beautiful country. The great thing about Spain is that it’s so convenient to travel to, you can even make your trip over a long weekend and still enjoy many of the highlights of one of Spain’s culturally-rich, cosmopolitan cities. The only question which remains is which one will you visit first?
