Spain is more than bullfights, flamenco dancers and crowded beaches. It's a spectacular and diverse country, the north resembling the rolling, green hills of Ireland and the south giving you a taste of Moroccan landscapes and architecture. Its tremendous history is reflected in its prehistoric cave paintings, Moorish palaces, crumbling castles, Roman ruins, Gothic and Renaissance cathedrals as well as some very distinctive modern architecture. The uniqueness of Spain lies in the separate kingdoms which made up the original Spanish nation. These regions remain diverse in their language, culture, cuisine and art. They include: Andalucía, Aragon, Asturias, Basque Country, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Cantabria, Castilla La Mancha, Castilla León, Catalonia, Extremadura, Galicia, La Rioja, Madrid, Murcia, Navarra and Valencia. Areas of interest are not limited to each region.

Spain is a very popular place to go for a holiday. I have been to the Canary Islands known for their beautiful golden sandy beaches. My friend recently went to holiday to the Balearic Islands and found the beach to be very child friendly. Another friend enjoyed a trip to what she described as Green Spain. She enjoyed visiting unspoilt villages and towns with interesting architecture. I like to go to Spanish speaking places like Guatemala so I am trying to learn Central and South American Spanish.
