Spain, beside Portugal, is the largest state of the Iberian
Peninsula and accordingly different is its landscape. In
the northeast the Pyrenees, borderline to France, in the northwest
the Atlantic, then the Sierra Nevada with over 3000 m high mountains
and last but not least the Balearic- and Canary Islands. This all
makes this country so manifold and interesting.
But Spain is well known mainly for its round 800 km beaches along
the Mediterranean Sea. Thousands of tourists come here year by year
in the main season.
Spain has also culturally a lot to offer. Andalucia, in the hot
south, with the historical cities of Granada and Seville is an
absolute must see. Or Madrid, the capital and residence of the king
and seat of the government, Barcelona the most modern city in Spain
are well worth seeing, too.
