Things to see and do in Northern Spain
Visiting cities is always a fun and memorable experience, especially when they are as stunning and intriguing as those in the north.
San Sebastian is home to some of the finest restaurants and best European beaches. But that’s just part of the reason why people fall in love with it. Many refer to it as to the jewel of Basque country. With its undeniable and exquisite charisma, it is easy to understand why Donostia (Basque name) is so popular.
If you want to admire the architecture, then Bilbao is a place to go. This old industrial city has come a long way from its roots and now features many modern and urban buildings. Some of them are the Guggenheim Museum, The Isozaki Atea space, Bilbao Arena, The Ría de Bilbao Maritime Museum,… which are full of surprises and in a total contrast with the pretty Old Town Casco Viejo.
Santiago de Compostela is the capital of Galicia and is best known as the end destination of the renowned Camino de Santiago pilgrimage.
Logroño, Navarra, Burgos, Santillana del Mar… are just a few of the names to remember and look out for if you’re headed in this direction. Each and every one has to offer something that is worth stopping by.
