Which city in Spain should I choose?

The answer to this question is different for every person. Spain is a country rich with history, culture and language which makes every region and city unique and interesting in its own way.

For people who want a big city experience, Madrid and Barcelona offer the variety of activities that you can only find in a large metropolitan area. Madrid is located in the center of Spain with easy access to entire peninsula. There are also great museums, and a beautiful old city. Barcelona is ideally located on the Mediterranean Sea. This modern city offers a wealth of cultural and architectural landmarks enveloped in a cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Valencia, Granada and Seville are relatively large cities, but between them offer very different experiences. Valencia is the third largest city in Spain located south of Barcelona along the Mediterranean. This modern city along with long beaches features excellent regional cuisine and some of the most famous Spanish festivals. Seville and Granada are both located in the southern part of Spain where the climate is hot and dry. Architecture, culture and local gastronomy differentiate these two southern cities but both reflect the Arab influence from another time.

Marbella (Albergue, Alborán and Alemán) and Salamanca are excellent choices for those who prefer relaxation and the ease of a small city. Salamanca is a college town known as the “golden city” due to the color of the sandstone used in the construction its buildings. Landmarks in the old town such as the town square, cathedral and historic university have all contributed to it becoming a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988. Marbella is popular tourist destination due to its privileged location along the “Costa del Sol”. Celebrities and European high society alike come here to enjoy the numerous golf courses, beaches and exquisite Mediterranean living.
