Visit Northern Spain, and See Beautiful Work by Gaudi!
If you’re a true tourist then you must visit Northern Spain. In northern Spain, there is a (spectacular) work of art signed by the famous Spanish sculptor, painter and designer: it is Villa Quijano.
Northern Spain extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean, bounded by the Pyrenees Mountains at the border with France. With its diverse landscapes and distinct provinces, this beautiful area of Spain offers something for every type of traveler.
The energetic, culture-packed city of Barcelona has fabulous art museums and fantastic architecture. San Sebastián is an elegant beach resort with a quaint Old Town and an outstanding restaurant scene. The ultimate destination of the medieval Way of Saint James pilgrimage, Santiago de Compostela immerses visitors in the spiritual ambience that has animated the city for a millennia.
Besides Barcelona’s Gaudí monuments and Santiago de Compostela’s historic center, other UNESCO World Heritage sites are scattered throughout northern Spain, including a breathtaking cathedral in Burgos, the Roman ruins of Tarragona, pre-Romanesque churches near Oviedo, and the Ordesa and Monte Perdido Natural Park in the Huesca province.
Travelers searching for a soul-inspiring experience should take a journey to the remote Monastery of Montserrat. For picturesque fishing villages and coastal scenery, the Costa Brava in Catalonia is sure to impress. Thrill-seekers flock to Pamplona for its annual Running of the Bulls event, but the town itself is an interesting place to visit any time of year, and the nearby Navarra countryside has wonderful hiking trails.
