Top Tips

We love Free Walking tours at Tripfindr!

This is because they are the BEST WAY to Learn about and Explore a city!

Book one and ask your Guide all the Questions you may have, as well as seeing all the Hidden Gems that Spain’s Cities have to offer!

For Solo travellers, these offer a perfect opportunity to make friends!

One of the best ways to experience local culture while travelling is by tasting traditional dishes.

You could challenge yourself to find a tapas spot in each city or destination you visit!

Although many Spanish people speak English, a little language knowledge goes a long way in enhancing your travel experience.

This is especially useful the further off the beaten track you go, as finding people who speak English will not be as guaranteed as in the major tourist areas.

Make it Unique

Ronda is a mountaintop city in Spain’s Malaga province that’s built spectacularly above a deep gorge which divides the city’s 15th Century old town from its new town!

A stunning stone bridge spanning the gorge has a lookout offering views.

New town’s Plaza de Toros, a legendary 18th-century bullring, is one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks.

“La Fiesta Brava” (The Brave festival) is a type of bullfighting that is practiced in Spanish speaking countries, as well as in parts of southern France and Portugal.

This style of bullfighting involves a spectacular contest where a bull is ceremoniously fought in a sand arena in front of huge crowds.

Also known as “King’s little Pathway“, it is one of the most dramatic walks in Spain.

Built in 1905, it was known as the MOST DANGEROUS WALK IN THE WORLD, but after a complete renovation in 2015, it is now much safer, and a spectacular hike!
