A short introduction to visit Spain
In the Summer of 2019, I brought a visit to Spain, in company of my wife Wendy & our daughter Lisa.
We arrived in Spain on Thursday August 15 and left on Wednesday September 4. A total of 21 days, 19 whole days between our flights in and out.
Resulting in 5 posts:
- 1. We started our visit to Spain in Barcelona
- 2. Continued southward to Valencia (with a day-trip to Xàtiva).
- 3. Then headed westward to the medieval city of Úbeda, Andalusia
- 4. Before visiting Granada (with a day-trip to Guadix, the thermal baths of Zújar & the rock of Gibraltar).
- 5. Ending up in Sevilla (from where we went on a day-trip to Córdoba ).
Tips for & impressions of a visit to Spain
In every city & around we visited many attractions. Activities you’ll maybe also want to undertake when you visit those places.
I’ll give you impressions, but also some background info, useful tips & recommendations on every one of them.
Let’s start with some photographic impressions of Barcelona, Valencia, Úbeda, Granada & finally Sevilla.
Five nights in beautiful Barcelona wasn’t enough to see it all, but we enjoyed the start of our journey through Spain tremendously. What a city. The city of Gaudí.

By train we headed on to Valencia. A relaxing place inside – that is, the city center & Turia gardens – and out, the nearby beaches.

In Valencia we rented a car. On our way to Granada, we wanted to make an off-the-road stop and decided on the impressive medieval city of Úbeda.

And then Granada. We weren’t only mystified by our visit to the world-famous Alhambra, but also by other mesmerising historical attractions as well.

Our final destination in Spain was stately Sevilla. Although tired because of our long trip through Spain & the tropical heat in southern Spain, another place we will never forget.
