Proposals to say goodbye to the winter season with a weekend getaway to Spain
Winter is still going strong, but it’s not long now until the highly anticipated change of weather accompanying the arrival of the new season begins to knock in our doors. February is quite the key moment to start planning a different and fun getaway in order to say goodbye to the coldest months of the year, and do so in style. Enjoy an interesting weekend in Spain with the following proposals by Sidorme.
If you’re committed to doing something original and out of the ordinary, choosing Madrid as your destination could possibly be the winning option. For example, you could leave your fears behind, put on some ice skates and enjoy a unique experience of sliding along the ice. The capital city of Spain has impressive places catering even for the most demanding travellers: enjoy a fun evening on the ice at the leisure and sporting facilities of the Palacio de Hielo.
The perfect weekend in Spain with a stop in Madrid
After practising some sports, to go out and enjoy some of the most typical dishes in the capital city of Spain cannot possibly do us any harm. Fight off the cold with a delicious squid sandwich at the Mayor Square, or warm up with a good Madrilenian stew, and some hot chocolate with churros afterwards.
All these varied options can be rounded off with a pleasant walk delighting in the winter landscape of El Retiro Park, while getting familiar with a different picture of this renowned enclave in Madrid. It’s the perfect plan for a fun weekend, with the added appeal of a comfortable stay in a hotel in the centre of Madrid, the strategic location of which puts all the places of interest in the capital city of Spain within your immediate reach.
If in addition you would like to take advantage of your getaway to do some shopping, there is always the option of staying in a cheap hotel near Madrid located in Las Rozas. From here you will be able to visit the wide range of outlet stores of the best fashion designers and renew your wardrobe at incredible prices. And really, with all the money that you will be saving on accommodation, why not sweeten your weekend in Spain with a couple of purchases?
Artistic and gastronomic routes for a special winter getaway
The cuisine and the magic of the markets also come to life in Barcelona. The perfect weekend in Spain could include a stop by this stunning Catalan city, with an interesting tour by the Sant Antoni Market, where every Sunday you will be able to take a look at its best textile products and second-hand books. It’s the perfect place for a walk whilst you snack on some delicious chestnuts.
To continue our tour, our next stop could be another key point for travellers who love good food, like La Boquería Market. Its close location to the popular and crowded Ramblas is ideal if you’re interested in discovering part of the essence and the great historical background of Barcelona.
The key to thoroughly enjoying this experience is to do so without any rush, and for that reason a room in a low cost hotel in Barcelona is your best choice. Recharge your energies in our facilities whilst enjoying the best comfort to continue visiting the many attractions this city has to offer. Some cultural tourism to hide from the cold may well be a good idea: we recommend paying a visit to the Joan Miró Museum, the Contemporary Arts Museum of Barcelona (MACBA), or the incredible Picasso Museum, amongst others.
Sports and Flamenco to make the most out of a magical destination like Granada
An unparalleled weekend in Spain must include dances and its rich architectural and natural heritage, and Granada is the perfect candidate for that purpose. Without any doubt this Andalusian enclave is a winner when it comes to a fun and good flamenco show, namely the ones carried out in the neighbourhood of Sacromonte. Such a memory will undoubtedly stay forever imprinted in your retina.
If you choose a hotel in Granada as your resting place, do not hesitate to make some time for delighting in the tranquillity transmitted to us by nature. To dedicate a few magical days to skiing is just about the perfect plan, allowing you to discover the whitest landscapes of the area, or to take part in the various activities in the snow of a spectacular place like Sierra Nevada.
