Spain Travel Guide
Spain is more than bullfights, flamenco dancers and crowded beaches. It's a spectacular and diverse country, the north resembling the rolling, green hills of Ireland and the south giving you a taste of Moroccan landscapes and architecture. Its tremendous history is reflected in its prehistoric cave paintings, Moorish palaces, crumbling castles, Roman ruins, Gothic and Renaissance cathedrals as well as some very distinctive modern architecture. The uniqueness of Spain lies in the separate kingdoms which made up the original Spanish nation.

These regions remain diverse in their language, culture, cuisine and art. They include: Andaluca, Aragon, Asturias, Basque Country, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Cantabria, Castilla La Mancha, Castilla Len, Catalonia, Extremadura, Galicia, La Rioja, Madrid, Murcia, Navarra and Valencia. Areas of interest are not limited to each region.
Festivals Place to Visit Fast Facts

"Spain is the country of Festivals, Fiestas and Ferias. Every town and village in Spain, no metter how small or even how big, stops and celebrates the local festivals. The articles within this site provide an introduction to some of the larger ferias and festivals that are held in Spain but in total there are over 3000 festivals held here each year.
Some fiestas are on set days each year and some take into account local issues and needs. For example many of the coastal towns and villages hold their large Ferias in the autumn after the tourist rush is over."
