The 10 most recommended cities in Spain

Granada-Andalucia
I cannot deny that I have had a hard time preparing this article. Choosing the 10 most recommended cities in Spain is complicated, and not precisely because they are scarce. There are so many that could be in the ranking that I have had to rule out more than one city that I would recommend traveling to without any hesitation.

As you can see, there are not only big cities. There are also other cities with less population that deserve to be among those chosen for many reasons.

Barcelona

Barcelona
Barcelona is the city that all foreigners have in mind. That is why it is one of the ones that receives the most tourists around the world year after year. The sea, its beautiful architecture, its emblematic monuments, its gastronomy … It is difficult to resist the charms of Barcelona .

Madrid

Madrid
The capital of Spain not only shines for being the capital. It also does so for its parks, for its historic buildings, for its markets, for its hidden cafes or for all the cultural heritage it houses.

Valencia

Valencia
I traveled to Valencia with not too high expectations and returned with the feeling of having been in an incredible place. Its historic center is very beautiful and you rarely see yourself as in a big city full of avenues. Quite the opposite. You get to have the feeling of being in a huge town with endless corners that trap you.

Seville

Seville
Seville has something special, as the song says. Anyone who sets foot in the Andalusian capital can attest to this. The Giralda, the Torre del Oro, the Real Alcázar of Seville, the emblematic Plaza España, the unique Triana neighborhood, the Cathedral of Seville… Impossible to get bored !

Saint Sebastian

Saint Sebastian
What a picture, right? An aerial view of La Concha beach is enough to convince the tourist that he has gone to a travel agency in search of a new getaway. San Sebastián is a modern city that can boast of having one of the most beautiful beaches in Spain. And not only that, but its gastronomy is one of the most renowned in the old continent.

The Alhambra in Granada, the main attraction of the city, aspired to be one of the 7 new wonders of the modern world and it could be perfectly so. It is a magical place that you have to know, the same can be said of the rest of the places in this city that preserves a valuable cultural heritage.

Toledo

Toledo
Toledo is a walled city. It has been so since Roman times, although most of the stones that are preserved today are of Arab origin. In fact, the wall has had to be rebuilt on several occasions. You will like everything about the "city of three cultures" (Muslim, Jewish and Christian). A walk through its streets is like a walk through history.

Santiago de Compostela

Santiago de Compostela
Santiago de Compostela is a city where many pilgrims who have completed the Camino de Santiago arrive. Its cathedral, in addition to the four squares that surround it (Obradoiro, Quintana, Inmaculada and Praterías) are a must-see.

Burgos

Burgos-city
Burgos, the land of the Cid Campeador, was the capital of Castile for just under 500 years. Its beautiful Gothic cathedral is a World Heritage Site and is probably the point of most interest, although it is also worth visiting the Museum of Human Evolution and the Atapuerca sites, which are only 10 kilometers away.

Salamanca

Salamanca
Salamanca, the university city par excellence, is often undervalued. Many buildings shine with their own light because they are made of sandstone, a material that is extracted from nearby quarries. It is known as " The Golden City " and has been a university since 1218. You cannot miss its Baroque-style Plaza Mayor, where hundreds of students gather every day to eat and sing.
