Top 10 Things to Do in Spain

Destination(s): Madrid

Plan on unforgettable experiences with our top 10 things-to-do in Spain guide. Soccer has long been king in Europe, and you can pay homage to the sport when you visit one of its most storied venues, Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. The stadium is home to Real Madrid, one of the premier soccer teams in the world. You can take a tour of the stadium during the off-season and the adjoining museum is well worth a visit to learn about the history of the team and the sport. Built as a park for royalty in the 17th Century, Parque del Retiro is home to the only statue dedicated to the fallen angel in the city of Madrid. This huge park in the center of the city contains a lake for boating and fishing, and on holidays and weekends, performers of all varieties such as musicians and jugglers entertain the crowds. You can also watch painters at work and have your fortune told. read more about Top 10 Things to Do in Spain

One of Barcelona's greatest attractions and one of the few that are absolutely free, is Gaudi's incredible Park Guell. Get anywhere near the Vallcarca stop on the green line and you'll see tourists lumped together, maps in hand, asking locals for Park 'Guay'. Designed and built by Gaudi between 1900 and 1914, this spectacular mix of garden, park and architectural dream is a small oasis within Barcelona. From the mosaic benches, to the meticulously tiled rooftops, Park Guell is both fascinating as it is serene. One of the best places to spend a sunny day, the park is a great place to listen to music, enjoy a few copas of vino or just relax with a good book. read more about Parc Güell

The Cathedral la Seu is also known as the Cathedral of Santa Eulalia, a saint whose crypt is in the cathedral and is one of Barcelona's patron saints. This place of worship can be viewed from the square in front of it only because several years ago it was decided that an entire block of buildings should be torn down to better appreciate the grandeur of the construction. The interior is a treasure box full of elaborate chapels. The first one on the left displays a marble baptism basin which is said to be the very place where Christopher Columbus brought the first six "Indians" from the Americas to be blessed. An impressive choir, located in the center of the central nave, is a typical characteristic of the interiors of Spanish cathedrals. Walking through the cloister visitors can step over the burial grounds as the tombs of the rich and important line the floor. read more about Catedral La Seu
