Sightseeing

Its not just bull fights and pretty senoritas, but a whole range of historical monuments, museums, castles, markets, quaint little villages on hills, and the odd abandoned house – and much more than even this travel guide could probably tell you.

Andalusia in the south is the Spain of airline brochures and picture postcards…..rolling hills punctuated with quaint little villages and endless coastlines. This region retains the Moorish mysticism of Spain’s historic heritage in its many Islamic mosques and palaces.

The Andalusian coast is not just known for its tapas and gourmet cuisine of sumptuous shellfish and sherries, but boasts such exotic tourist spots as Marbella on the Costa del Sol where the jetset and the ordinary tourist zero in on the beaches to get “an even suntan”.

In Seville , be enthralled by the flamenco dancers and the clicking of their castanets as they execute a twirl to the beat of the music. In Madrid , art lovers will find nirvana in the world class Prado, Reiny Sofia and the Thyssen-Bornemezzia museums– all situated along the world famous “ Museum Mile. ” The fashionable boutiques, chic cafes and charming, narrow lanes should make for the perfect promenade in the right weather. The city’s architectural wonders, such as the Plaza de la Villa , will make for some rolls of film well spent.

Apart from the splendors of Madrid, Spanish Castile’s many charming towns have other attractive offerings too . Explore the plains of La Mancha and sample a hearty meal of suckling pig with the warm hearted country people. Toledo , Spain’s former capital, was once home to El Greco the famous Greek painter who lived and painted here. View his works at the numerous museums in the city.

In Barcelona , you will find the city that gives Madrid a run for its tourist revenue. Business center and capital of Catalonia, and cultural Mecca in general, it is home to such thoroughfares as the Gothic Quarter , which compactly holds the products of 2000 years of Spanish history.

The palace fortress of the Alhambra stands tall and majestic in the hills of Granada. This awesome structure with it’s detailed sculpting and high archways is a tribute to Moorish builders.

Barcelona is home to some of the best museums and finest collections in the world including the new Guggenheim Museum , a titanium-glass-limestone building with distinctive contours that houses one of the finest collections of contemporary art in Europe.

You cannot leave Spain without witnessing a bullfight in Cordoba . The thrill of seeing man and beast confronting each other in the ring is like no other. A flick of his cape and the matador has the bull charging at him. With a quick dexterous sidestep the matador fools the bull and thus the bull misses his target. This enrages the bull and so it goes on.

Shopping

Go ahead and buy out the boutiques in Madrid if you will, but remember that extra value added tax or IVA is levied on almost everything – ranging from 7-14% -depending on if it’s a shop, hotel or department store. Stores are mostly open from roughly 9 am until 8 pm, with an hour-long lunch break during the day.

Pretty porcelain goods, fans and other handicrafts will make affordable and attractive gifts. Large Department stores in cities like Madrid include El Corte Inges, Mango, Zara, Bershka and (surprise!) the English chain, Marks and Spencer.

Also in Madrid, the streets of the Preciados and Montera shopping districts are lined with vendors wanting you to buy their stuff and quite willing to bargain. Old fashioned and rustic shops can be found around Plaza Major and Calle Mayor.

Eating Joints

Restaurants, tapas, bars and cafes line the streets of cities and many villages. Tapa bars can be frequented for a glass of good sherry or beer, followed by a platter of appetizers. For something lighter and perhaps a little more continental, you can frequent the cafes – which serve steaming and flavorful coffee as well as light snacks such as sandwiches or cakes. Mealtimes in Spain are quite late. 2 pm for lunch (even 3 pm on weekends), and 8:30 pm for dinner. A cup of coffee would cost roughly less then a Euro, a sandwich about Euro 2.5 and a three course meal in a bistro would be Euro 6 total.

Typical Spanish dishes include the Paella – what may be called the national dish – a sumptuous blend of seafood,, saffron rice and vegetables. Also mouth watering are the Gazpacho, fabadas, perdiz(partridge ), and cochinello (suckling pig)dishes. Andalusian specialties include fried fish and shellfish called frituras, as well as olives and cured ham.The best wines can be tasted in the Riodja and Penede region. The sherries of Jerez are also popular.

For some action-packed entertainment, find your way to the Las Ventas bull ring in Madrid, or similar venues in other cities. If you cannot handle the pacy beat and the sometimes painful heat – treat yourself to one of Spain’s many operas houses, theatres, film festivals, museums or bars which are by no means limited to the capital…. Remember, the Spaniard loves a good fiesta – even for no reason at all,- so finding the fun spots should be easy as apple pie.
