The Complete Toledo Spain Travel Guide

Anyone who has visited Spain will tell you that the country has no shortage of incredible cities for one to visit. While some of the larger cities like Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia may get most of the attention, I have a soft spot for the culturally rich smaller Spanish cities and towns. One of my favorites of these cities is the incredible city of Toledo. Toledo is one of the oldest and most unique cities that you will find in all of Spain. It was the capital of the country before Madrid and is still widely considered to be Spain’s cultural capital to this day. The city of Toledo absolutely brims with historical landmarks and is renowned for its wonderful festivals that date back centuries. For travelers to Spain who are looking for an authentic Spanish cultural experience, I can think of few cities better to visit than the incredible city of Toledo.

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 Spain 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 Spain.  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 Ultimate Travel Guide to Barcelona

The Ultimate Travel Guide to Barcelona

There are few cities in Europe, if not the world, that seems as magical as the city of Barcelona in Spain.  Rumored to have been established over 400 years ago by none other than Hercules, Barcelona has been home to its fair share of larger-than-life figures throughout its history.  Arguably one of the city’s most famous residents in its history was Antoni Gaudí, whose architecture can be found throughout the city and is world-renown for its unique style and beauty.  Arguably the most famous of his buildings is the infamous Sagrada Familia church, which has the distinction of being under construction for longer than it took to build the Great Pyramids of Giza.  In fact, the church is still under construction to this day.
