Because of its rich culture and breathtaking historical sites, creating a Córdoba travel guide was one of the easiest and most satisfying projects I have undertaken as a travel blogger. Once referred to as the “Constantinople of the Occident” and “Pearl of Moorish Spain” in because of its blend of different cultures who have, throughout its history peacefully coexisted, the beautiful city of Córdoba is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Spain. While the city is no longer one of the largest in the world, it is still one of the most culturally diverse cities in Europe.
According to legend, the city of Rome was formed by brothers Romulus and Remus, who were raised by wolves. Fast-forward to today and perhaps no city in Europe has as deep and as storied a history as Rome. From the days of the Roman Empire, to the age of enlightenment and the Renaissance, to the hustle-and-bustle of modern-day Rome, the city has seemingly always loomed large throughout modern human civilization. This is part of what made creating a quintessential Rome Visitor Guide so interesting, yet so challenging. There are so many interesting and amazing things to see and learn about the city, it is difficult to know where to begin.
Even though the name “Madrid” might be over 2,200 years old, the city of Madrid has only been the capital city of Spain since the 16th Century. In the time between then and now, Madrid has grown to not only be the largest city in Spain, it is also the third largest city in the European Union. In addition to being one of the largest of Europe’s cities, it is also the continent’s suniest. There are more days of sunshine in Madrid than any place else in Europe. Madrid is also considered to be one of the cultural capitals of the European Union. This would explain why the city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, if not the whole world.

If you are traveling to Belgium from outside of the country, you should be aware of the passport, VISA, and immunization requirements before planning your travel. If you do not meet the requirements, you will be denied entry into Belgium. This is not something that I would wait until the last minute to take care of as you might not have enough time to sort out any issues at the last minute should you run into them.
The city of Seville in Southern Spain is well-known to most travelers for its incredible beauty, but many travelers are unaware of the deep historical and cultural significance of this amazing town.

These are just some of the many reasons why the city of Seville continues to be one of Spain’s best kept secrets.
