Between now and September is when the majority of us take time off work and have are main holiday of the year.
There’s nothing better than a week or two away in another part of Spain to unwind from work and recharge our batteries.
Spain is not just a holiday destination for tourists, It has many amazing sights for us all to visit. So if you’re lucky enough to get some time off work this summer then here are a few places worth visiting:
The Roman Bridge and the Mezquita (Córdoba)
Sitting above the Guadalquivir River, the Roman Bridge was built more than 2,000 years ago. It has 16 arches and measures 300m in length. It is one of the most important crossing points in Spain. The Mezquita (mosque) most notable for its giant arches was host to a Roman temple. If you like architecture and history then the Mezquita is a fantastic place to visit.
One of the oldest cities on the peninsula, Ronda is found 750m above sea level. The spectacular views taken in from the top of the cliffs and mountains of Ronda make this town in Málaga one of the most magical in Spain.
