Spain, which is historically one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world, has slowly begun to recover from the upheaval of the last two years. The country has enjoyed an increase of 467% in tourism since the start of January 2022, and this figure keeps rising. This part of Europe is a traveler’s favorite as it features incredible sunny weather, delicious local cuisines, and luxurious beaches. So, as the world begins to open up again, be sure to have Spain on your list as the following cities present the perfect destination for a getaway.
Barcelona has been and still is, the most popular city in Spain for tourism. It’s a city that’s known for its laid-back vibe, as workers spend their midday siestas eating tapas and drinking coffee. Throughout the city juxtaposed by historical buildings are buildings that were designed by the world-famous architect Antoni Gaudi. These architectural marvels will shatter perceptions of what a modern-day city should look like.
Ibiza, while not technically a city, is an archipelago off the coast of Spain. Over the past few decades, it’s become one of the most popular destinations for partying and nightlife. But there is more to the island than the culture of raves and nightclubs. Across the island are scatterings of gorgeous coves and caverns, with waters as blue as the sky itself and seafood cuisine so fresh you’ll feel as though you’ve been living on the ocean for the past few months. A must-see for people needing a luxurious getaway after a tumultuous two years at home.
The city of Granada sits in the foothills of the famous Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. These surroundings make for one of the most idyllically situated cities in the world, and the architecture does well to meet the standards of beauty set by the surrounding nature. Besides the scenic advantages of Granada, the city is also well known for its electric atmosphere, especially on nights when the local football team takes to the pitch. The people of Granada take immense pride in their city, and this shows whenever talking to the locals.
