Things to do in Spain
As a large country with a vaired landscape there are so many things to do in Spain. If you have taken the ferry over, you will likely be in the North either near Santander or Bilbao. From here heading south to Pamplona would be a good option, as you will be able to take in the rich history, food and culture of a city full of medieval architecture and rich nightlife. If the name of the city rings a bell, it is because it is also where the running of the bulls takes place. From here you can head east towards Barcelona, west to untouched Galicia and the ancient pilgrim city of Santiago de Compostella or south to Madrid or even south-west to Portugal! Spain has an extremely varied landscape with rocky coasts, sandy beaches, high mountains, arid planes and bustling towns and cities. The country is of course packed full of history and not to forget delicious dishes including world famous paella and a vast array of local specialties.
Events in Spain
While a relaxing beach holiday may be on the cards for some, Spain offers so many holiday options, especially for those with a zest for culture. Events in Spain can be great fun! The Tomatina is just one example. The annual festival is held in the town of Buñol, Valencia, a mere 19 miles kilometres from the Mediterranean in the east of Spain. You may well have heard of this event held on the last Wednesday of August as the world's largest tomato fight. The event is held throughout the day, in which participants throw tomatoes and get involved in this epic food fight as an entertaining way to have fun, interact with other people and simply have a big messy day out (it might be a good idea to get hosed down before getting back into your motorhome)!
