Madrid city tour
For starters, Madrid, its capital, offers endless adventures. A good option to get to know this city is to make a city tour.

Beyond Madrid and its sumptuous western style, you’ll find the Alhambra‘s impressive architecture which invites you to relive the Nazari past. There you’ll find the palaces and gardens where emperors and kings lived. Similarly, in its corridors and courtyards, you can take incredible photographs, as well as in its beautifully decorated rooms, whose domes, tiles and perfectly preserved ornamentation await you. Keep in mind that you should get your ticket in advance because such a beautiful place is usually crowded with tourists.
Cave of Altamira
Next, we went from architectural opulence to the beginnings of civilization: the Cave of Altamira. There you will find a photo gallery where you’ll witness a sample of the European cultural heritage. Also, you must visit the mythical cave, where you can enter every Friday and recreate yourself with the pictorial creations that are there. On the other hand, you can visit the library and appreciate the rock art that is on display in this magnificent museum. Request information through the official website and get ready for an out-of-this-age experience.
Teide National Park
Now’s the turn for the sensational National Park of Teide, in Tenerife, where you will find Spain’s highest point. Visit it to breathe pure air, walk along trails where volcanic lava made its appearance, and feel tiny in this place, declared as cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO. You can go up the cable car and reach the upper station at 3,555m and see a spectacular view. But this is not all; you must follow a path to ascend the crater for about 40 minutes. Once on the top, you’ll be able to watch up to 4 islands. To live this experience, you must request a special permit on the park’s website.
Hanging Houses of Cuenca
Speaking of heights, the Hanging Houses of Cuenca have a record for their beauty and particular location: they’re on a cliff. You can get to that place from the Bridge of San Pablo, which is by a stone bridge through which you must walk a bit to see these impressive houses whose interior is filled with various relics of a still-alive past.
Municipal Market of Vallehermoso

Tapas and other exquisite foods are the order of the day in establishments like the Municipal market of Vallehermoso, where you can find a wide range of fresh foods such as greengrocers, butchers, fishmongers and, of course, the best meats and sausages. Also, there are foreign gastronomic proposals such as Argentine cuisine, Thai, and even Japanese, combined with a range of recreational activities that will amaze both adults and children.
