If there is something that truly makes Spain such an attractive destination during colder months is its excellent warm climate. Most cities boast sunny and lovely weather throughout the year, making Spain the perfect choice for enjoying magnificent rich landscapes, beaches, bustling shopping and leisure areas, or the most beautiful nature views. Additionally, this country has many singular places which will undoubtedly turn your weekend in Spain into a really unique experience. A space like Park Güell in Barcelona is certainly a good example, with its colourfulness and incomparable architecture. It was inaugurated back in 1925, becoming one of the primary must-see places, and you wouldn't want to miss out on the opportunity of snapping a few photographs to immortalise its beauty. If you choose the city of Barcelona for a weekend in Spain, you’re in for a real treat, with several other stops which will not fail to surprise you. With the added appeal of going on a budget-friendly and authentic Spanish holiday, taking a walk through Barcelona, visiting its neighbourhoods and antique establishments is an experience worth living in person. There is a variety of cafeterias where renowned personalities wrote and carried out talks and social gatherings; traditional and particular places such as San José Market, also known as La Boquería; or characteristic buildings like Casa Batlló on Paseo de Gracia, making for an impressive list of the most incredible places to visit and get acquainted with Spain beyond its tradition.
If your passion is the sea and long walks by the beach, you will find everything you need without leaving Catalonia, with the added appeal of benefiting from great prices. Choosing low cost hotels in Figueres, for instance, is the perfect alternative for discovering the charm of this area and its surroundings. We’re extending you an invitation to enjoy stunning hiking routes and the most precious coves in Europe. And without forgetting Dalí’s Theatre-Museum, homage to this renowned artist, which is a construction brimming with so much originality you won’t be able to take your eyes off it. Another fantastic choice for your weekend in Spain would be staying in one of the low cost hotels in Granada, if you’re looking for an authentic Spanish holiday. This Andalusian city is a point of reference for anyone who wants to spend a few days surrounded by tradition and flamenco rhythms, sample the most delicious tapas, as well as enjoy the breathtaking Sierra Nevada Mountains, already covered in the first snowfalls of the season. If you’re a skiing and mountain sports enthusiast, do not hesitate to visit Granada.
Talking about holidays which challenge us to discover slightly less typical destinations, it’s important to mention Valencia as well. If you’re looking to spend a 100% authentic weekend in Spain for your holidays, pay a visit to the Colón Market, and enjoy the feeling of warm sun rays and flower scent so characteristic of the City Council Square. However, if you’d like to discover a more traditional side of Valencia as well, take a walk by the splendid beach of Malvarrosa. Staying in a cheap hotel in Valencia is the perfect option for moving between different points of interest of this city, and getting to know other traditional neighbourhoods like El Carmen, or the remarkable architecture of the City of Arts and Sciences complex.
