After finishing our excursion to the ‘City of Light’, Paris, we moved to Spain. We liked France, but Spain was the place we fell in love with. Each destination has its own highlights but Spain has more than its fair share. It has everything a tourist wants, an impressive culture,  the cuisines which it got from its history, the world-famous dance form, Flamenco, and there’s a long list of iconic phenomena, all together that makes Spain a must visit destination. Without further ado, we’ll share our own experience about the place.

After all the sightseeing in Paris, we flew to Spain and enjoyed exploring the capital city of Spain. It was just a two hour journey from Paris to Madrid and we enjoyed this journey a lot. Madrid is one of the best cities in Europe and visiting this beautiful place was an amazing experience. We got to know a lot about the country’s history, culture and traditions, which were limitless. The main structures in Madrid that we visited included the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and the Royal Palace. They were marvellous and unforgettable.

We learnt how the ‘Real Madrid’ originated and slowly developed into the best football club in the world. It established itself as a major force not only in Spanish but in the entire European football over the years and is a favourite of many.

As we were there only for a day, we tried to explore as much as possible. We also did a lot of shopping. Everyone bought souvenirs for their families and friends. It was a tiring day and the moment we hit our beds, we fell asleep.

After Madrid, we embarked on a long drive to Barcelona, via Zaragoza. On the way, we went to the Lady of the Pillar which is the second most visited pilgrimage destination in Madrid. Thousands of pilgrims come every year to kiss the small statue of ‘Our Lady’.

Moving on to Barcelona, we enjoyed touring the spots of interest in the City of Gaudi, especially the La Sagrada Familia which is a church that has been under construction since 1882. It is a large unfinished Roman Catholic Church in Barcelona, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. It has long been one of the most recognizable landmarks in Spain.

We enjoyed Spain more than France and simply fell in love with the place. We can’t miss mentioning, that while exploring Barcelona, we saw a water fountain with a very interesting story behind it. Our guide told us that anyone who drinks from the fountain will fall in love with Barcelona and will return to the city time and time again… Who knows? Maybe we all will visit this beautiful city again.
