The Cities of the Peninsula
Spain has great cities and great small towns. Your best bet is to start in Madrid, the capital city. Located in the geographic center of the country, it is home to many museums and attractions. Travelers love visiting the Plaza Mayor and imagine how life was centuries ago as they savor tortilla espanola at one of the restaurants bordering the square. From there you can take pictures at La Puerta del Sol, that is just a few blocks away. If you are an art buff, head to El Prado Museum and be amazed at the impressive national and international art collection. Madrid offers many opportunities to socialize with the madrilenos at coffee shops and bars. Before leaving the city, spend some time al El Retiro park which is the largest green space in the city. If the arts are your thing, go South to Barcelona where the city will marvel you with the strange building designed by Gaudi and its vibrant cultural life. All in all, this is a great travel souvenir to take back home.
