Spain is one of the most visited countries not only on the European continent, but in the entire world, as it is an extremely diverse country that matches the interests and preferences of any type of tourist. The diverse country is always ready to offer you an imposing mountain peak, villa espagne piscine, a fine beach bathed by crystal clear waters, an old monument that tells the story of one of its corners, a modern and cosmopolite city ready to entertain you with its pubs, restaurants and nightclubs or a picturesque, whitewashed old village where the customs and the traditions of the country survived the passing of time. I assure you that a Spanish holiday will be a memorable one, as this country knows how to make you fall in love with it!

Visiting Navarra

Navarra is not one of the biggest regions in Spain, but it surely is a beautiful one, with a long list of things to do and places to visit. The region has a very agitated history, with France, Aragon, the Bask land and Castile playing important roles in its development. It is this history that most attracts tourists to Navarre, as the monuments and the buildings lie as testimonies for the past events. Navarra can be described as a region with an impressive monumental richness, thanks to Saint James’ Way, the route followed by thousands of pilgrims every year, so make sure you have enough time at your disposal for visiting all the Cathedrals, castles and palaces.

However, these are not Navarre’s only attractions; cities such as Artajona, still surrounded by its medieval walls, Estella Olite, the city where Navarre’s kings had their seat or Tudela are definitely worth a visit. The capital city of Navarre is Pamplona, the most famous Spanish city regarding its dangerous and full of adrenaline tradition: bullfighting. The festival that takes place in Pamplona every year having as main event the running of bulls is one of the most famous celebrations in the country. While in Navarre, also make sure that you have time to visit some of the 50 nature preserves on its territory, as the views are exceptional. Enjoy Navarre to the fullest!

Spain - The Hidden Wonders Of Alcoy

The city of bridges, hidden between mountains and lying at the junction of four rivers, Alcoy is a historically rich, culturally eclectic city full of interesting sights. About 45 km north of Alicante, it is easy to reach from the larger city and worth the trip.

The City

Founded and built around the cotton and paper industry, Alcoy has grown into its own over the past two centuries. It began its modernization during the last part of the Spanish industrial revolution and hasn’t stopped. With a population of around 60,000, it is a growing center of culture in Spain. The first Spanish industrial school was founded here and its central streets are adorned with classical architecture from the 18th and 19th centuries.

Inside Alcoy, the bridges that cross the four rivers are renowned for their structural beauty. The Archeological Museum features much of the town’s history and focuses on its Greco-Roman roots. There are even several archeological sites within the city such as La Serreta and El Puig that date from the 5th century B.C. The historical significance of the sites can be seen in the remnants of the many towns and villages from throughout the ages. From a 12th century castle and the Na Valora tower of the 13th century to the hermitage of San Antonio Abad of the 18th century, a tourist can retrace the footsteps of ancient peoples and get a glimpse back in time.

The Festival

The fiesta of the Moros y Cristianos is celebrated vigorously in Alcoy from the 21st to the 24th of April every year. This is the most important cultural event in the city and everyone gets involved and helps to organize.

The first day of the festival is dedicated to musicians. Bands and street performers play traditional music all day and then gather in the city square to play a celebratory hymn in the evening. On the second day, visitor participation is encouraged in the colorful processions of ancient armies. In the morning, the Christians will enter the city followed by the Moors in the evening. On the third day, the celebrations continue with tributes to San Jorge or Saint George. The final day sees the recreation of the famous battle el Alardo. The two armies march down the streets, weapons in hand and making a lot of noise. After a great showing of military might, the ambassadors sign the peace treaty in the town square.

With so many fun things to do and see, Alcoy is a must-see on any vacation to the Alicante region of Spain and location villa costa brava. Take the entire family as there are plenty of interesting activities for everyone.

The Coastal Region of Costa Blanca and its Attractions

This land of sun and surf has perfect weather nearly year round and is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in the world. With vibrant, modern cities like villa espagne, Alicante and Benidorm and quaint sea-villages such as Javea and Denia, there is a town, an atmosphere, which will suit anyone.

The Big Cities

The capital of the province, Alicante, is the cultural and economic center of the region. With tourist packed beaches and a pulsating night-life, it is a modern city in the middle of a growth spurt. Close to Alicante is another large town, but not nearly as big as its sister city, Elche, is known for its massive palm forests. The residential architecture of Elche is unique and stunningly beautiful with its compact design and pastel tones.

The entertainment metropolis of the area is Benidorm. With literally hundreds of bars and clubs, it is the party-goers dream destination. The beaches of Benidorm offer a relaxing place to rest up after a night of hitting the clubs. Within these large cities are ultra-modern accommodations and five-star dining. Benidorm and Alicante offer everything that cities like L.A. and New York do and sometimes more.

The Small Villages

The countryside of the Costa Blanca region can be stunningly breath-taking. Driving along the coastal highway, tourists are blessed with views of ocean cliffs drenched with rainbow strewn spray. Almond orchards and orange groves dot the hillside between villages surrounded by picturesque, terraced buildings. Javea and Denia are small fishing towns painted vibrant pastels that almost jut from the cliffside. Colorful Moraira and Villajoyosa seem to harken to a medieval period of knights and sleepy hamlets.

Other Attractions

Continuing to follow the coastal highway will lead a tourist to many theme parks. With waterslides and roller-coasters, Costa Blanca’s theme park industry has some of the best rides in the world. The beaches throughout the region offer a mix of secluded, white-sand gems all the way to tourist packed, bar and restaurant lined extravaganzas.

With a well-developed infrastructure and industry, the Costa Blanca region offers countless attractions. For the young, partying tourist, Benidorm and Alicante’s bars and clubs would be an attractive destination. A family might enjoy the quiet solitude of Denia or Javea. Regardless of the taste of the person, there is something to whet everyone’s appetite in Costa Blanca.
