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 a stop at a lesser-known town 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.
