Overview

You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when traveling in Spain.

In this guide, you’ll find an inviting mix of exciting cities and cozy towns. Explore the lively cities of Madrid, Barcelona, and Sevilla, and follow the Route of the White Hill Towns in Andalucía’s sun-drenched countryside. Experience the works of the great masters—from El Greco to Picasso to Dalí—and learn how to avoid the lines at the most popular museums. Self-guided walks lead you through the castles, cathedrals, and villages of this ancient but modern land. End your day with a glass of Rioja wine and a plate of tapas—then join the locals for an evening of flamenco.

Rick’s candid, humorous advice will guide you to good-value hotels and restaurants. He’ll help you plan where to go and what to see, depending on the length of your trip. You’ll get up-to-date recommendations about what is worth your time and money. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves guidebook is a tour guide in your pocket.

I traveled through Spain for 18 days with my elderly parents and found this guide an invaluable resource before and during the trip. While most hotel/hostel recommendations were not available or did not meet my criteria, advice about restaurants, major sights, and transportation was very useful, as were as other travel tips. I also found the short guides useful for places like El Prado Museum and the Alhambra. I very highly recommend this publication for travel in Spain.
