1 - Madrid Top 10 by AlldayInternetSpain


Have you ever thought about visiting Madrid? Today we provide you with our Madrid Top 10,
including those places we consider you shouldnt miss while visiting the capital of Spain.

1) Curves, colour and sustainability: The journey begins with a pleasant surprise right after arriving
to Spain because Barajas Airport and specially the new terminal T4 designed by the British architect
Richard Rogers and the Spanish Antonio Lamela is a very well-known sight as part of the
cosmopolitan Madrid. Rogers himself described it as the journey celebration. The 2,000,000 m2
bamboo-lined roof is really impressive and it is considered to be the world biggest project that
incorporates bamboo as the main architectonic element as well as being natural and sustainable.
2) A new skyline for a new Madrid: Perhaps it is not the first time you visit Madrid, however if you
havent come since 2007 you will discover a new skyline that has completely changed the citys
vision, the Cuatro Torres Business Area (CTBA) (Spanish for Four Towers Business Area). It is a
skyscraper business district located in the former Real Madrid Sports City and it holds the tallest
buildings in Madrid and Spain.
3) Today we will have some tapas: We know this is one of the things you have in mind when you
visit Madrid, however we would like to offer you a selection of the traditional places where the tapa
concept acquires an even more tasty and authentic meaning. In the city centre and in La Latina you
will discover La Alhambra, Casa Labra, El Venencia, Los Gatos, Lateral, El Econmico or Aloque;
these are some of the most legendary bars in Madrid for tapas hopping. You shouldnt leave the
country before visiting Casa Parrondo in Gran Va or El Tigre in Chueca.
4) Take a nap in El Retiro: After tapas hopping there is no better plan than the one by which we are
famous in the whole world. It is time to take a nap! 20 minutes are enough. After waking up you can
have a walk and explore an outdoor museum called El Retiro, the lung of Madrid and you will also
find the Velzquez Palace and the Crystal Palace.
5) Plaza Mayor Terraces: The Plaza Mayor of Madrid is one of Madrids urban treasures designed
by the architect Gmez de Mora and it is one of the sights you shouldnt miss during your visit to
Madrid. In the afternoon, the crowded terraces are an ideal spot to sit down and observe the bustleand

state where bullfights, executions and citys history took place in the 15th century.
6) Madrid Fashion City: It is obvious that you are not leaving before going shopping because Madrid
is one of the big fashion capital cities. The Barrio de Salamanca (Spanish for Salamanca District) is a
one of the classic places for those who want to spend a pleasant time while shopping. The Serrano
street is the main road of this majestic district and famous for its boutiques. Feel free to visit Adolfo
Dominguez flagship store, an entire building where the whole collection of the Spanish designer is
exhibited.
7) Get lost in Malasaa and Lavapis: At night, the party is guaranteed in Madrid and we choose
Malasaa and Lavapis. It is the epicentre of the Movida madrilea from the 80s; the rock n roll
environment and the fusion of styles define Malasaa. Meanwhile, Lavapis represents the most
mixed race and multicultural night in Madrid with live performances of all kinds. Yes, of course you
will find flamenco singers as well.
8) Art - The Museo del Prado (Spanish for The Prado Museum): The Prado Museum is the first art
museum in Spain with a painting collection raging from the 12th century to the 20th century. The
museum includes the world biggest collection of Velzquez, Goya and Rubens and provides ambitious
seasonal exhibition programmes with several significant works of art for the coming months.
9) Broadway in Madrid: The Gran Va of Madrid has become a model in the musical genre and by
many people it is already known as the Spanish Broadway. This type of genre has revitalized the
Gran Va, the most important street in the city which until recently was replacing theatres for top
brand shops.
10) Metro Madrid Andn 0: The best way to move around the city is by using the Madrid Metro
which is the second largest underground in the European Union in kilometres and the sixth in the
world. Moreover, the interpretation centre ANDN 0 shows an essential part of the city industrial
heritage: The history of Madrid Metro, the transport as the main economic driving force and the social
change related to industry.

We know that while you stay in Madrid you will need to be connected to your family at all times, to
share your tour with them, to check the schedule of those sights you wouldnt miss in a comfortable
and cost-effective way. AlldayInternetSpain.

2 - The most cosmopolitan city in Spain. Top 10 things to see and do


in Barcelona
Barcelona has become one of the favorite cities in Spain as tourist destination, perhaps because it is
the most cosmopolitan and modern city in the whole country; a city that started its transformation in
the 1992 Summer Olympic Games. At present, it is one of the worlds best appreciated cities to live
due to its infrastructures, climate and wide range of cultural and leisure offers.
In 2012, more than seven and a half million tourists visited Barcelona with a total of 16 million
overnights and more than 2.5 million cruise passengers, being again the Spanish city with biggest
expense by foreign tourists who spent around 2.500 million euros last year. If you come to visit the so
called Ciudad Condal for holidays or business, there are many attractions you shouldnt avoid. The
Barcelona To-Do list is really endless.

Today, we provide you our Barcelona Top 10, a list of interesting sites in Barcelona that we know you
must visit during your trip to the Catalonian capital.
1) La Sagrada Familia, the symbol of Barcelona: Certainly the most renowned and famous
monument in Barcelona and one of the most visited in Spain. It is a temple first built in 1882 and a
year later the great Gaud carried on the task. It is the biggest attraction in Barcelona and the true
symbol of the city. You can go on a virtual visit to its facilities in the website:

in the city center and former port. You will discover the charm within this Mediterranean city in its 1,
2 kilometers of length, taking a peaceful walk in which you will find street artists, terraces, shops,
restaurants

to visit La Boquera, a wholesale food market where you will find the best vegetable, meat, fish
shops but also a gastronomic room, even a cultural program and famous places to taste the
pleasures of Mediterranean gastronomy and best tapas. Here, the fresh products defining the
Mediterranean diet are mixed with the most cosmopolitan values of a city that supports urban culture.
4) Nature and color in Park Gel: Again Gaud is part of our top 10 things to see in Barcelona. This
park is World Heritage Site by UNESCO; it has an area of 17 hectares where strange beings of nature
and colorful geometric shapes live; a magical place if you travel to Barcelona with kids. There, you
will also discover one of the best viewpoints of Barcelona.

5) Ancient Barcelona Barrio Gtico, the Gothic Square: A walk around the oldest area in
Barcelona is another indispensable plan during your trip to the city. There are several tourist
attractions like the Cathedral, the King Plaza, the Royal Plaza and relevant shopping arteries such as
the Calle Porta de LAngel.

provides the program Camp Nou Experience and you will be able to visit the stadium, changing
rooms, tunnel, FC Barcelona museum, a multimedia area with interactive murals where the club
history and values are expressed.
7) El Pueblo Espaol, The Spanish People A summary of Spain in Barcelona: For those who visit
Barcelona attractions but cannot continue visiting the rest of Spain, we recommend you to visit the
Spanish People, an area built for Expo 1929 which shows some monuments and sites that most
characterize Spain. More than 100 Spanish squares and spots can be found there.
8) Picasso Museum A link between the artist and the city: The art lovers will not forget to visit
the Picasso Museum because it is a reference center to get to know the artist work. At present, the
collection

Barcelona
is
now

9) Shopping in the Paseo de Gracia: One of the main streets and another place to visit in Barcelona.
It includes World Heritage Sites as impressive modern buildings such as La Casa Batr and La
Pedrera and one of the best places to go shopping in Barcelona. 1
10) The coolest night in the Olympic Port: The Olympic Port can be recognized as another
attraction, very recommendable during night time when you will discover the best bars and clubs in
the city. Next to the Olympic Vila, the beaches la Barceloneta and Nova Icaria can be found, as well as
the impressive Torre Arts and Torre Mapfre, and the famous W Barcelona, one of the most modern

colourful villages, small villages and municipalities where you can discover during several days, and
above all, away from the typical crowds from tourist places full of people and noise, and they are
perfect to evade from the daily life, to escape from the routine and to time travel.

We hope village lovers can understand the many villages that are not included in this post. Top 10
Charming Villages in Spain:
1) Cudillero (Asturias): We start in Asturias, a region full of fishing villages like Cudillero. This
village is built like an amphitheatre over a hill made of three small hills, full of narrow streets and
hanging colourful houses which protect its beautiful fishing port. We recommend you enjoy the
gastronomy and sea products found in many restaurants and cider bars within the port area, and if you
have the opportunity you should have a walk across this place at night. Lights from houses in the dark
and the nocturnal environment which make this place a perfect place to spend an unforgettable stay.
2) Santillana del Mar (Cantabria): Not far away from Cudillero, in the autonomous community of
Cantabria you can find Santillana del Mar, which is a historic and artistic centre of the region,

considered by many people a monument-village. Have a walk across the stoned streets, rest in its
beautiful Tourist Hotel and do not miss its great attraction, the Museum of Altamira, a visitor centre
of its famous caves which are considered to be the Sistine Chapel of Cave Paintings.
3) Albarracn (Teruel): Over 1.100 meter altitude, it was declared Historic-Artistic Set and aims to
be declared World Heritage by UNESCO. Have a walk across its historic centre of this medieval city
made of reddish roofs, discover its beautiful small palaces, go up to its walls to enjoy the dawn and do
not miss its 14th Century cathedral, its outdoor cave paintings, gothic style monasteries or hanging
houses.
4) Vjer de la Frontera (Cdiz): You will be attracted by its popular architecture of Arab-Andalusian
style, narrow and steep streets, or the brightness brought by its immaculate white houses. It is close to
the coast of Cadiz and the river Barbate, presumes of a lovely castle of Arab origin, its fortified area,
the Jewish Quarter or its charming Plaza de Espaa (Spanish quarter), which is well-known as La
Plaza de los Pescaitos (Fishes Quarter) by locals.
5) Fuenterraba (Pas Vasco - Basque Country): This is one of the most charming villages of the
Basque Country located 25 kilometres away from San Sebastian and only 4 kilometres away from the
French frontier. It is also known as Hondarribia, the name in euskera, you will be surprised by its old
part to taste the worldwide famous tapas of Basque gastronomy, its perfectly preserved wall, its
baroque houses which are mixed with flashy colourful balconies, its beaches or fishing port. Take a
boat that will cross you to the Hendaya. You can take it every 15 minutes and it is a beautiful
experience to complete your stay in this location.
6) O Cebreiro (Lugo): This is a perfect destination if you travel with kids, due to its uniqueness and
charm of its pallozas (popular buildings of pre-roman origin which have been used until recently). If
you travel to Galicia, you should know this mountain small village could be the setting of a tale and it
is a tourist attraction for many travellers during the Camino de Santiago.
7) Cadaqus (Girona): This is a natural location of Cabo de Creus; a really beautiful small village
which is surrounded by wild small bays and islets, and it has been selected as holiday inspiration
location for artists like Picasso or Mir. Its old quarter is full of a street labyrinth where its
uniqueness can still be found and the old road surface known as el rastell, or the buildings of
modern style sea front, has made this locality one of the most beautiful of Costa Brava.
8) Deia (Mallorca): Located in Tramuntana Mountain Range, this village is possibly the most
beautiful one in Mallorca and the resident location of artists, musicians and writers who throughout
history have chosen its landscape beauty and extraordinary peace. This is a postcard village which is
characterised by its terracotta tiles and the bohemian lifestyle of locals. You should visit its wonderful
bay where you can enjoy the calm waters of the Mediterranean Sea or discover the great amount of
paths found in its surroundings which are marked for tourists.
9) Castrillo de los Polvazares (Len): 5 kilometres away from the city of Astorga, Castrillo de los
Polvazares attracts tourists throughout the year due to its charm found in its stoned streets, its
Castilian buildings which are the most beautiful and best preserved examples of popular architecture
from Leon, its big ramshackle houses made of stonework that share importance with the simple
houses made of red clay, and mule driver tradition of locals (they used to trade with sea products
coming from Galicia and Castilian products). Thanks to tourism boom, you will find quality

restaurants to taste the most famous local dish: Cocido Maragato (Maragato stew).

Spanish beaches captivate tourists worldwide; they are the main reason to make Spain a tourist power
and you can find many and very different ones; any traveller would turn crazy among hundreds of
beaches and bays across 7.800 kilometres of Spanish coastline. Small and remote bays with crystal
waters, volcanic beaches, elegant urban sandy areas in the middle of natural parks with enormous sand
dunes Today, we select some of the best beaches of Spain, ten beaches which will captivate you due
to beauty and location. From Cantabrian Coast to Costa Brava, some of the most famous ones in the
Canary Islands or the Balearic Islands, without forgetting Andalusia. We offer you our Top 10
Beaches in Spain and we tell you how to stay connected to the internet 24 hours without roaming fees
in the best Spanish beaches, thanks to AlldayInternet, our portable Wifi rental service for foreign

Today we collect our 10 favourite beaches, a small selection of some of the most impressive beaches
of the Spanish territory due to location, landscape uniqueness, beauty and fame or due to virgin sandy
and protected areas which are worth make public in order to preserve them.

Regardless the place you have planned for your next beach holidays in Spain, you will find many of
them which will captivate you. 1.900 kilometres of beaches in the entire country provides wide range
of opportunities. Apart from the vast amount, our beaches are renowned for the quality and services
provided, although this selection might not provide you the best sandy areas with services focused on
the tourist or swimmer. This year Spain adds a new record becoming the country with most blue flags
in its beaches, with a total of 681 beaches. The following ones are the best ones, at least, our favourite
ones. Top 10 Beaches in Spain:
1) Playa de las Catedrales (Ribadeo Lugo): This beach is considered one of the best beaches of
Spain and the sixth best beach in the world according to Travellers Choice Beaches Awards 2013. Las
Catedrales is a perfect setting due to rocky formations of over 30 meter high which have been sculpted
by the sea and the wind throughout thousands of years. We recommend you visit it while falling tide
so you can have a walk across its cracks, subsidence and galleries. Be careful if you wish to visit the

cliffs protecting the beach, especially with wind as this is a frequent weather condition in this Galician
coastal area.
2) Playa de Ses Illetes (Formentera Islas Baleares): If the sixth best beach considered by
TripAdvidor 2013 has just been mentioned, this year Playa de Ses Illetes, in Formentera, has been
considered by the same portal as the second best beach in Europe. It is located in the northern part of
the island, and it is famous due to crystal waters, fine sand with a mild pink colour produced by red
coral erosion which can be found underwater. It can be found within the Natural Park of Ses Salines, a
privilege environment for diving lovers.
3) Playa de la Concha (San Sebastin): This is the most famous urban beach of Spain, always
preserved by the beautiful Promenade of San Sebastian and the rest of city behind it. You will find
adventurous swimmers even in winter when temperatures of Cantabrian Sea do not exceed 10 degrees.
It includes one and a half kilometres of white, elegant and urban sand area which is considered the
second best urban beach worldwide by the travel magazine Travel and Leisure.
4) Praia de Rodas (Islas Ces Pontevedra): In 2007, the newspaper The Guardian has chosen this
beach as the best beach in the world. Located in the Ces Islands (Galicia), perhaps is one of the most
paradisiacal beaches of our selection and can be compared as one of the best beaches of the Caribbean.
Turquoise waters and white sand, surrounded by pine forest and in crescent shape with a small lake. It
is ideal for people looking for a calm beach day in a sustainable and preserved environment: The
Natural Park of Atlantic Islands.
5) Playa del Lago Verde or Charco de los Clicos (Lanzarote Canary Islands): This beach is
perhaps the most striking and unique of our Top 10 Beaches in Spain. A wonderful beach located next
to a spectacular volcano where you can find semiprecious stones in the sand. The most peculiar aspect
is its famous green lake due to sulphur waters, black sand and the contrast of these colours along with
the blue colour of the Atlantic Sea.
6) Playa de Monsul (Cabo de Gata Almeria):6 This is the most famous one in the Natural Park of
Cabo de Gata, next to other beaches which are also worth mentioning: Playa de los Genoveses, Cala
Raj, Playa de las Negras or Playa de los Muertos. Any of these beaches are impressive due to its
wilderness where its access can be found by a desert landscape unique in this area. In this sandy area
many famous films like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade or Lawrence of Arabia were filmed.
One recommendation: You will not find many shadows but usually quite high temperatures. Do not
forget the umbrella, a drink and anything you need to spend a pleasant day.
7) Playa de Bolonia (Costa de la Luz Cadiz): Paradise for Windsurf lovers, this wild beach is
perhaps the most beautiful coast of Tarifa. You can practice nudism, have a drink and taste the wellknown pescaitos (traditional fish) of Andalusia in some of the relaxing chiringuitos (traditional
bars) next to the beach or have a walk across over three kilometres of golden sand.
8) Cala Aiguablava (Begur Girona): We arrive to Costa Brava and its beautiful rocky bays in
Begur, where apart from our favourite one, you will find other beaches equally recommended:
Aiguafreda, Sa Riera, Sa Tuna or Illa Roja. Cliffs and cliff forest provide us this bay with crystal
waters where there are many entertainment boats to enjoy a sunny day.
9) Playa de Langre (Cantabria): Due to its unique topography is considered by many people the

most wonderful beach of this region. You can have access to it through steep stairs. Bear in mind that
this sandy area is surrounded by vertical cliffs including quite meadows to eat while enjoying the
landscape over the Cantabrian Sea. Be careful at bath time because this beach, as well as the
neighbour Playa de Somo, is famous by its streams and in fact the first surfing reserve in Spain.
10) Playa Sa Calobra (Mallorca Balearic Islands): The last beach of our selection but not less
amazing, Playa de Sa Calobra, possibly the most beautiful beach in Mallorca. It is located under the
hill Puig Major which is the highest of the Balearic Islands, and is notable for its cliffs and natural
tunnels. As a curious aspect, each summer a choral concert is performed due to its excellent acoustic
which is guaranteed by the rocky formations of its environment.
