    Spain Once away from the holiday costas, you could only be in Spain. In the cities, narrow twisting old streets suddenly open out to views of daring modern architecture, while spit-and-sawdust bars serving wine from the barrel rub shoulders with blaring, glaring discos.

    Travel is easy, accommodation plentiful, the climate benign, the people relaxed, the beaches long and sandy, the food and drink easy to come by and full of regional variety. More than 50 million foreigners a year visit Spain, yet you can also travel for days and hear nothing but Spanish. enjoy Spain

    When To Go


    Spain

    can be enjoyable any time of year. The ideal months to visit are May, June and September (plus April and October in the south). At these times you can rely on good-to-excellent weather, yet avoid the extreme heat - and the main crush of Spanish and foreign tourists - of July and August. But there's decent weather in some parts of Spain virtually year round. Winter along the southern and southeastern Mediterranean coasts is mild, while in the height of summer you can retreat to the northwest, to beaches or high mountains anywhere to escape excessive heat. The best festivals are mostly concentrated between Semana Santa (the week leading up to Easter Sunday) and September to October.

    Spain Geography

    Geography

    Spain occupies

    most of the Iberian Peninsula, the nearest European landmass to Africa: it is separated from Morocco by the Straits of Gibraltar and has both an Atlantic and a Mediterranean coastline. Portugal is on Spain's western side and is divided from France by the Pyrenees mountains. The Canary Islands in the Atlantic and the Balearic Islands, in the Mediterranean, are Spanish. Madrid is the capital city. Other important cities are Barcelona, Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada and Valencia. Spain is mountainous; some of the land is semi-desert and the country has a long coastline which borders the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. Its largest rivers are the Ebro, Duero, Guadalquivir, Guadiana and Tagus. The climate is varied, with snow in the mountains and extremes of heat and cold in the central region. Drought is a particular problem in many areas.

    Spain Environment

    The variety

    of the landscape is reflected in its flora: among Spain's trees are pines, cork-oak trees and beech trees; flowering plants include orchids, gentians, lavender and rosemary. Spain's native animals are relatively small: deer, ibex, tortoises, bats, snakes (including a venomous viper) and other small creatures though a small number of bears, wolves and lynxes remain. The native birds are vultures, eagles, kites, bustards, storks, flamingoes. Many other species stop off on their migration route from Europe to Africa. Many national parks, protected areas and reserves have been established over the years. These include the World Heritage sites of Donana National Park and Garajonay National Park. Mont Perdu in the Pyrenees is also on the UNESCO World Heritage List. In addition, forty-nine sites are designated by Ramsar as Wetlands of International Importance and thirty-three sites are UNESCO MAB Biosphere Reserves. (2006)

    Spain Architecture

    Spain's

    colonizers have left their architectural mark on the country. The Roman Aqueduct in Segovia is one of the key buildings in Spain's architectural heritage.
    Moorish architecture can be seen at the Alhambra palace outside Granada. Moorish influence continued, even in religious buildings, for example, in Toledo while the mosque at Cordoba, famous for its red and white Moorish arches became the city's cathedral.

    Spain has many well preserved examples of religious architecture which are on the World Heritage List: monasteries, churches and cathedrals.

    Today modern buildings stand alongside the old. One of the best known examples of early twentieth century Spanish architecture is Antonio Gaudi's Temple de la Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. A number of buildings in Gaudi's characteristic style are also on the World Heritage List.

    Spain Languages

    The

    majority

    of the people speak Castilian Spanish, about seventeen percent speak Catalan and around severn percent speak Galacian. The Basque population speak their own language, Euskara.

    Spain's exploration, colonization and empire are reflected in the number of people in the world who speak Spanish worldwide.

    Spain Food

    Spanish cuisine

    is full of typically Mediterranean ingredients such as olive oil and tomatoes. Many traditional Spanish dishes are served in tapas bars which are a feature of Spanish life. Traditional dishes include tortillas, (potato omelets), paella, gazpacho (cold soup), sausages, meats such as lamb and pork, cheeses, sardines, octopus, squid and fruit. The Arab influence can still be seen in the use of fruits and almonds in savoury dishes and in some of the spices and sweet dishes.
