Valencia Old Center Spain-001

A while back I made a quick 2 day visit to Valencia in Spain. The last post summarizing this visit is about the lovely old center. Lovely Spanish architecture, lively markets, parks and gardens, cathedrals and museums, and plenty of great places to eat and drink. I spent about a day roaming around the center […]

15 Jul, 2017 in Barcelona

Barcelona is an exciting vibrant city, with lots of tourist attractions, but perhaps the most famous of those is the La Sagrada Familia, which has been under renovations for ages. It’s not the only cathedral worth visiting, and in the Gothic quarter is the Cathedral of Barcelona which had lots of open markets and artists […]

Between Malaga and Seville up in the mountains and close to national parks (Sierra de las Nieves and Sierra de Grazalema) is the lovely old town of Ronda. Dating back to the 9th century BC (yes, BC, not AD), it’s one of the region’s oldest towns and has seen all conquerors and rulers. The mountainous […]

28 Jun, 2017 in Malaga

To wrap up the visit to Malaga, no summary is complete without mentioning the old historic center. The apartment I had was very close to the center, and so I had plenty of opportunities, day and night, to walk around and explore. It’s quite lovely, all pedestrian area, lots of cool restaurants and bars, with […]

5 Jun, 2017 in Madrid

Madrid has long been on my TODO list, but it was only the end of last year around holiday time that I finally made it. Since it was the holidays, most of the things in Spain were closed, but I was able to visit a few attractions that were open, and perhaps the most famous of […]

Toledo is a gorgeous mountain-top fortified city with a very rich history dating back the 2nd century BC, passing through the hands of many different regional powers. One of the fascinating things to see in Toledo is how they’ve built on this history to boost up tourism, and one of the prime examples is the local […]

5 May, 2017 in Malaga

Malaga is on the coastline and has a port, and so once you’re done roaming around the hilltop castles and the old city you can head to one of the marinas nearby and catch a boat-trip to take you out to sea and see a different view of Malaga. Palmeral De Las Sorpresas is the newly […]

21 Apr, 2017 in Southern Spain

One of the nicest surprises for me in Seville was a Flamenco show I caught with the Museo del Baile Flamenco. Although it is meant for tourists, and you might expect cliche, as far as I can tell this was a very well done show, with some very impressive local artists. It gave a very good intro […]

9 Apr, 2017 in Southern Spain

Didn’t have nearly enough time to explore beautiful Seville, but I did manage to see many of the highlights, with a walking tour around the old city and the very grand Plaza de Espana. The old city is a very big area surrounding the Iglesia del Salvador cathedral, and you could easily spend several hours roaming […]
