Spanish towns that you must visit at least once in your life

I probably don’t need to tell you, because you already know that Spain is a country with endless incentives that allow it to be a world power in tourism. We tend to think about the coast and give all the credit to the sea and the good weather, in addition to highlighting how well it is eaten here. However, I think it is also fair to talk about the beauty of some of the towns that are distributed throughout the entire length of the Iberian Peninsula. Some of them are hundreds of kilometers from the beaches, but that does not mean they are not worth a visit.

In this article I have compiled up to 7 Spanish towns that I consider that you have to visit at least once in your life. Would you like to meet them?

Peratallada (Girona)

Peratallada is one of those towns that always keep you awake, with your eyes wide open so as not to miss anything that can be seen walking through its cobbled streets. You can see that it is of medieval origin and it is appreciated that it keeps most of its old town in very good condition, and on the other hand it is also great news that the vegetation draws the route and lines up the facades of many houses that ask to screams a photograph.

Priego de Córdoba (Córdoba)

Priego de Córdoba, known as "the city of water" because of the many springs that it treasures, draws attention for the beautiful mixture of white facades full of flowers that are repeated house after house to fill its streets with joy and light. In addition, it can boast of having several baroque-style jewels such as the Iglesia de la Asunción.

La Alberca (Salamanca)

The swimming pool
In the Sierra de Francia, south of the province of Salamanca, La Alberca has the privilege of being a Historic-Artistic Complex since 1940. Its architecture, its narrow streets and the beautiful balconies adorned with flowers explain why it is so famous among tourists , that when the good weather arrives they flock to multiply its population, which is just over 1,200 inhabitants.

Santillana del Mar (Cantabria)

We know that Cantabria is a beautiful land, and that is partly thanks to towns of such characteristic beauty as Santillana del Mar, which with about 4,000 inhabitants is a highly recommended place to spend a summer vacation. It is known as "the town of the three lies", since it is neither "holy", nor is it "flat" nor does it have a "sea". There are many things to see there, but perhaps the point of greatest interest is the Altamira Cave , since it was inhabited about 18,000 years ago and is an unmistakable example of rock art.

Albarracín (Teruel)

Does Teruel exist? Of course! And not only the city itself, but also towns such as Albarracín, which is one of the national jewels for several reasons, must be given ball. Its little more than 1,000 inhabitants will tell you, not without reason, that its historic center is simply spectacular. It was declared a Historic-Artistic Site in 1961 and could become a UNESCO World Heritage Site if the proposal is accepted. The Episcopal Palace, its castle, the Torre del Andador, the cathedral … There are many things to see.

Ronda (Malaga)

There are many people who consider Ronda to be the most beautiful town in Spain (or is it rather a city with more than 30,000 inhabitants?). What can you do there? To begin with, enjoy the views that can be witnessed from the 100 meters high of the New Bridge, which despite its name is more than 200 years old. Another good idea is to stroll through the Alameda del Tajo, the same thing that can be said of strolling through the Plaza del Socorro and the surrounding streets. You can also visit Juan Bosco’s house or relax in the Arab Baths of Ronda, which could not be better preserved.

Besalú (Girona)

I know that I have already talked about a town in Girona, but I couldn’t end this list without talking about Besalú , which is another of the towns that should be on every traveler’s wishlist . Being there you will feel like in the Middle Ages, because all its buildings are historical and it has a beautiful bridge that unfolds over the Fluvià river. This fortified bridge is a marvel, as is the Besalú mikveh , which dates back to the 15th century. In the surroundings you can also see the remains of the old Jewish quarter of Besalú.
