Visit one of the world’s most frequently-visited countries in Spain. Spain’s rich history, spectacular natural landscapes, vibrant culture, and great food combine to make it a world-class travel destination. In addition to being a top vacation spot in Europe, Spain is also a major hub for many industries in Europe. Energy, finances, manufacturing, and agriculture are all major industries in the country, and the country receives millions of business travelers each year as well.
Spain ranks second in the World Tourism rankings among all countries, trailing only its neighbor to the north, France. Spain welcomes more than 83 million visitors annually, offering its visitors an extremely wide range of experiences and attractions. The many great cities in Spain, such as Madrid and Barcelona, welcome millions of visitors each year. Thousands more tourists enter the country to explore the Pyrenees mountain range in northern Spain or the thousands of miles of Spanish coastline.
Spain is a great travel destination all year due to its warm summers and mild winters. However, late summer and early fall are typically the most popular times to visit the country.
Spain is located on the Iberian Peninsula, in southwestern Europe. It shares a land border with Portugal, France, and the microstate of Andorra. Spain borders both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. The Strait of Gibraltar is an 8-mile strait in the south of Spain that separates the European continent from North Africa.
Spain belongs to the Schengen Area of the European Union, composed of a group of European nations which abolished the use of passports at their mutual borders. However, visitors from outside this area must still show a passport upon entry to the region.
As of June 2022, American travelers are not required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination upon arrival in Spain.
Spain has many major international airports. The largest airport in the country is Madrid-Barajas Airport (MAD). Other major airports include El Prat Airport in Barcelona and Alicante Airport in Valencia.
Spain’s major cities of Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, and Santiago de Compostela are all major travel destinations for tourists in the region. Each city is distinguished by its unique architecture and culture.
One of the country’s most well-known landmarks is the Plaza Mayor in the center of Madrid. The plaza is lined with cafes and shops, with a statue of King Phillip III at its center. Not far from the plaza are the famous Cathedral de la Almudena and the Royal Palace of Madrid, the largest functioning royal palace in Europe.
There is a great deal of Spanish culture, both modern and historical, to discover beyond Madrid as well. The Guggenheim modern art museum in Bilbao is one of the most frequently-visited art museums in the world. Not far from Bilbao is the luxurious beach resort town of San Sebastian.
Other significant regions for Spanish tourism include the Costa del Sol region along the southern coast, the Pyrenees Mountains in the north, and the Canary Islands, a small archipelago in the Atlantic, southwest of the Spanish mainland.
A large part of what makes Spain such a desirable travel location is the variation within the country. With so much to experience, a charter flight to the destination of your choosing can be the best way to make the most of your Spanish vacation.
