Spain is a country of many different cultures, but it is also known for its beautiful architecture. The Spanish capital Madrid and Barcelona are known to be among the most visited cities in Europe. During your tours, you will find many places to visit as well as things to do during your trip to Spain. After the Spain tour, I am planning to for the adventurous Manaslu and prepare for Everest Climb.
Museo Picasso is a museum in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It is located in the Palau Nacional, a building designed by Lluís Domènech I Montaner for the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition.
The museum contains works by Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró as well. Other artists who were influenced by him including Salvador Dalí and Georges Braque. The collection also includes works by architects such as Gaudí and Antoni Gaudí.
The Alhambra is a Moorish palace and fortress complex located in Granada, Spain. It is listed in World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984. The palace’s name is derived from Arabic al-Ḥamrah (الحمراء), which means “the red”, due to its red-tiled roofs, which were originally coated with stucco and later covered with plaster.
The Alhambra was built by the Nasrid dynasty of Andalusia between 1072–1236 on the hill known as Sierra Nevada above the Darro River valley at what is now known as Almohad Square, near Granada’s Cathedral Square (Plaza de toros). The site was chosen because it provided an advantageous position for defense against attacks by Christian forces while being close enough to facilitate communication and commerce between Andalusia and northern Africa via coastal ports such as Cadiz.
The Sagrada Familia is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica dedicated to the Holy Family. It is located in Catalonia.
The Sagrada Familia was begun by architect Antoni Gaudí between 1883 and 1914, at which time he died before completing it. His nephew and successor Josep Maria Jujol completed the project after his death by 1946. It took another 20 years for construction work on this vast building to be completed: from 1929 until 1986. This period saw some of its most prominent features being added such as mosaics, frescos and stained glass windows. Today it stands as one of Spain’s most visited monuments (the most visited monument in Spain) with over 7 million visitors every year!
Toledo, Castilla-La Mancha
Toledo, also known as Toledo (Spanish: [ˈtoledo]), is a city in central Spain. It has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO as well.

Art & Architecture of Bilbao
Bilbao is the largest city in the province of Biscay and in the autonomous community of the Basque Country as well. After all, It has a population of around 500,000 people, making it one of Spain’s most important industrial hubs. Bilbao has been affected by several wars including World War II and Franco’s Civil War from 1936–1939. The city was rebuilt after each conflict with architecture inspired by its history with each building having a unique character that reflects its location within this region which is known for centuries for being home to manufacturing industries such as textiles, chemicals and shipbuilding along with other industries such as energy generation through oil rigs located offshore near Elizondo (known locally as “El Pico de Migjorna”).
Bilbao’s architecture is diverse but there are some commonalities between all buildings. They tend towards style neoclassical or late Gothic Revival styles; use natural materials like stone instead plastic; feature large windows on multiple levels combined with high ceilings so you feel like if you’re inside out house instead outside looking at it through these windows!
Cádiz is the capital of the province of Cádiz, in the autonomous community of Andalusia, Spain. Additionally, It is also a seaport on the Costa del Sol and its natural port. Along with Seville and Málaga, it is one of the most visited cities in southern Europe. Situated on a hilltop above sea level to protect it from flooding by storms coming from nearby mountains. Cádiz has been rated as having one of Europe’s highest levels of quality life (European Quality Cities).
Cádiz has become an important center for international trade with more than 100 companies. Generally operating there including banks such as BBVA Banco Popular España which opened its first branch here in 2003; airlines like Air Europa (formerly Spanair). Insurance companies like Mapfre Seguros which operates through its subsidiary Mapfre Insurance Company; electronics giants like Samsung Electronics who now have their European headquarters based here too!
