Since fall of 2009, I’ve had an on-and-off relationship with Spain. I studied abroad here in the fall of 2009 in Sevilla, then I came back in the summer of 2010 to Barcelona. I fell in love with Barcelona and couldn’t stay away, so when I graduated college in the spring of 2011 I moved straight here.
So that means I’ve been lucky enough to see a lot of Spain – I’ve lived in Andalucía and Catalunya, and visited lots of the rest of the country. Here’s where I’ve been so far (click on the photos to take you to my posts about those regions):
And here’s a more detailed list of spots:
- Castelldefels and Ocata (beach towns in the province of Barcelona)
- Figueras, famous for its Dalí museum
- La Jonquera – where escapees from the Spanish Civil War and Franco stopped before crossing over into France
- Olot, famous for its volcanoes.
- Palamós – a touristy beach town on the Costa Brava
- Sitges – a beach town near Barcelona known as “Gay Ibiza”
Valencia – Valencia
My current top places I want to visit in Spain are (in no order):
Asturias, País Vasco, Las Islas Canarias, Valencia, and Zaragoza.
