Spain is the quintessential British holiday destination: we’ve been decamping here for decades thanks to its agreeable locals, soft beaches and wall-to-wall sunshine. But there’s so much to explore outside the resorts of the south coast and Balearic Islands, we’d urge you to find your own little piece of Spain to call your own. Find somewhere that you’ll want to come back to year after year and we guarantee that you’ll uncover new gems on each visit. Consider the architecture, from the soaring Sagrada Familia, to the hilltop villages of Andalucia. Pick a foodie destination and tickle your taste buds with freshly-landed seafood, always-available tapas or the smoky fire of deep scarlet paprika dusted liberally on everything from sizzling paella to warming patatas bravas. From the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada to the scorched lunar landscapes of its Canary Islands, Spain is full of unusual contrasts that makes it gratifying to explore, time and again.
