Spain has a lot to offer the budget backpacker boasting beautifully warm weather for the majority of the year. Even the winters is Spain require little more than a fleecy jumper to get you through. Madrid and Spain are two very popular cities to visit. Spectacular monuments and museums, delicious Spanish cuisine and nightlife that rivals any on the planet. There are two things the Spanish love that are easy to get behind, the afternoon siesta and the nightly fiesta.
However the jewel in the crown for me as a traveller to Spain is down in the south. The Andalusia region in the south of Spain is one of the most interesting areas of Europe. The Islamic influence from the Al-Andalus period is plain to see throughout and has created a fascinating mix of architecture and culture.
