run the Pamplona Bull Run
If you are looking for a bit more of an excillerating experience in Spain then the annual bull run is for you. At 7 am every morning from 6th - 14th July every year. Part of the San Fermin Festival.
have a tomato fight at la tomatina festival
The world's biggest tomato fight takes place on the last Wednesday of August at Bunyol in Pamplona, near Valencia. Definitely doing at least once in your life!
Visit Ordesa National Park
Over 150 km˛ of breathtaking Pyranean mountains. Situated in Huesca province and full of wildlife and foliage. The most spectaular being the Bearded Vulture or Lammergeier. A worthy adversary for the top things to do in Spain list.
Go on a tapas bar run
Take part in this popular Spanish tradition. A lot of bars offer free tapas with every drink you buy, jump from bar to bar and enjoy the range of extraordinary appetisers. Usually served between 9pm and 11pm, sometimes even 12.
watch a flamenco performance
Another Spanish tradition, this unique style of dancing can be viewed in open public displays and in a number of different restaurants accross Spain whilst eating. Popular amongst all Spaniards, for all culturalists out there it's a must.
Regarded by many as the country's national dish, you won't struggle to find a restaurant which serves it. For me, the seafood paella is the best but there are also Valencian paella and mixed paella. They are the 3 most recognised types.
Seville is the artistic, cultural, and financial capital of southern Spain. Breathtaking scenery and some spectacular landmarks such as the Alamillo Bridge, Plaza de España, Del Carmen Church and many more.
take a tour of camp nou
Camp Nou is the 98,000 capacity stadium of FC Barcelona. An absolutely staggering piece of architecture. The eleventh largest stadium in the world. Tours are available and if you are a football fan, watchin Barcelona play can be pretty enjoybale too!
