More about Spain

Spain occupies about 85% of Europe's Iberian Peninsula. The vibrant country boasts varied and dramatic highlights. From spectacular alpine ranges and gorgeous beaches, to medieval castles, impressive galleries, historic sites and charming towns - there's so much to explore and experience in Spain! The second-largest country in Europe has around 3000 documented beaches, many of which remain untouched.
