Spain: A Mosaic of Cultures
However, Spain is not a homogeneous country but a collection of regions each bearing its own history and culture. Many of these regions' economies are based on agriculture and fishing. This contrasts with the industrial North region that is the most economically developed region. One of Spain's most interesting features is its Arab influence which can be perceived in its buildings and in some of its most important cities such as Cordoba which was the political and intellectual capital city of the caliphate. It is no wonder as the Arabs ruled Spain for more than 8 centuries. In the last forty years, Spain has become one of the preferred destinations of international tourists. It is no wonder as the peninsula boasts a blend of modern cities with rural towns that fascinate travelers. Your best bet is to start in Madrid, the capital city, and from there travel north to the Pais Vasco, or South to Cataluna. By all means, this is a great travel souvenir to take back home.
