With 300 days of sun in a year, it’s no wonder Spain is a popular destination for travellers all year round. It is a country of roman ruins, Moorish palaces, 1,000-year-old Mosques, incredible cathedrals, local village fiestas. the finest restaurants and wines and, of course, tapas.

Spain is the largest country in Southern Europe and has been inhabited for the last 35,000 years and spans across two oceans: the Atlantic Ocean, where it borders Portugal, and the Mediterranean Sea, where it borders France. The country has two archipelagos, the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. The islands are popular holiday destinations all year round due to the warm Mediterranean climate.

The Spanish Coast is a popular winter destination as it has a warm Mediterranean climate. Although morning temperatures can drop down to single digits, daytime temperatures can reach the low 20’s

Spain is also Europe’s second-most mountainous country, so if skiing is your passion you can head to the Sierra Nevada Ranges in the AndalucÌa region for a day’s skiing and then head back to the Costa Brava for sunset cocktails.

The country is made up on 15 mainland provinces and two external, the Balearics and the Canary Islands, making a total of 17. Each province offers the traveller so much to see and do and each is worth spending time in

It is easy to travel around the country via train or bus or even fly if you are short of time. There is so much to do and see, your only complaint might be that there’s not enough time to check absolutely everything off the list.

How easy it is to make friends in Spain.
