Unique things about Spain

of the strangest of all Spanish festivals and carnivals
is La Tomatina where upwards of 30,000 semi-naked people
gather to throw tomatoes at each other before getting washed
down by the hoses of the local fire brigade. It is truly
an experience worth experiencing and on the top of the list
of things about spain while visiting the country.

fighting and bull running is world famous and is on the
top of the list for things to do in Spain. Bull fighting
may be a ritualized killing and is many people’s idea
of extreme cruelty, but to others the experience of a corrida
is a breathtaking and dramatic view of the Spanish psyche.
- View the Alhambra: The Alhambra
is the most unbelievable and enduring legacy of Spain and
is worth a hundred visits. To get a true feel of it and
understand why the Alhambra was the physical expression
of the Moorish concept of paradise, one should climb up
to St. Nicholas Square at sunset and see how the ancient
wonder glows golden against the stunning snow-capped backdrop
of the peaks of the Sierra Nevada. One is sure to get moved
by the view.
- Art & Culture: The Guggenheim Museum
in Bilbao is a work of art in itself and worth visiting
even if you’re not interested in the wealth of art
and artefacts contained therein. The museum is an
incredibly daring structure built from titanium, glass and

Reina Sofia Museum is tame in architectural comparison.
