Palma de Mallorca: the Sunny Land
This souvenir from Spain reminds one of a rich tapestry that you could admire for a good long whole. It just looks so busy and there is plenty of substance to examine as well as contemplate, pun intended. Perhaps the most striking thing about this plate is the overall sunny disposition it appears to display. You are instantly transported to a place where sunshine is plentiful and there are plenty of landmarks that are just waiting to be discovered. There is also a wonderful use of contrast to try to convey the complexities that the Spanish country has to offer tourists.
Spain is a top tourist destination that attracts visitors from the cold European countries. Germans, British and Swedish choose this country to spend the coldest months plenty with snow and cloudy days. The Costa Brava is one of the preferred sites, other being Palmas de Mallorca, that sunny archipelago located South of the Peninsula.
It is Not All About the Sun
But Spain boasts a rich culture and history that travelers also appreciate. From Barcelona to Madrid, and from the Basque region to Valencia, the Spanish people open their hearts to welcome the visitor seeking refuge from tough climate regions. Architecture is one of the country's main attractions. If visiting Barcelona, the visitor will admire the amazing architectural works designed by Antonin Gaudi which give a unique touch to the city. If visiting the Basque country, don't miss the Guggenheim Museum which is housed in the innovative leafy building designed by renown architect Frank Gehry.
Madrid has a varied cultural offering starting with the Prado Museum. If interested in modern art, you shouldn't miss Reina Sofia Museum, and those who appreciate the avant garde art production need to pay a visit to Thiessy Museum. All in all, this is a wonderful travel souvenir to take back home.
