If you are looking for a special experience during your holiday, visit Spain. This amazing country has so much to offer that you will need more than one holiday to get to know it well. However, for a start, just choose a destination that suits your tastes, preferences and needs. Probably the first thing that comes into the minds of those who hear “Spain” is La Sagrada Familia. And they are not wrong as this architectural beauty - the work of Antoni Gaudi, is already an icon of Spain.
Barcelona is the city that proudly hosts it and even though the Cathedral is not finished yet, it still receives thousands of visitors every day. Another destination is the Alhambra Palace, about which some say that it is heaven on earth. It is a brilliant monument which represents the architectural genius of the Islamic civilization which once ruled over Spain. The Cordoba Mosque is famous for the golden mosaics that impress tourists as well as arches painted in red and white. The Mosque is the result of the architectural skills of three civilizations: the Christians, the Muslims and the Jews.
A once in a lifetime experience is a week in Seville, the week before Easter. Known as the Santa Semana, the fiesta that celebrates Jesus for an entire week attracts millions of visitors. Spending a few days in luxurious paradors is an experience which is not available in too many places on earth. The paradors are former palaces which throughout the centuries were transformed into convents. Now, their beauties have been awakened and you can understand their grandeur only if you visit them.
