Spain Sightseeing- Places to Visit

We received last week a new issue of a magazine that also advertise travel and trips. It featured an 8-day holiday in Spain with most everything included in it. The cheap flight, 4-star hotel, breakfast, dinner and the tours to the different places especially in the Andalusian region and the tourist guide is also included in the holiday package. It was so far the cheapest vacation package I ever saw in going to Spain.

Here are the places that are included in this holiday package.

Madrid

Visiting the capital and largest city of Spain is a must especially if its your first time to visit this country. Don't you know that Madrid is the third largest city in the European Union after London and Berlin? It is also one of the world's major global cities.

The Royal Palace of Madrid, 19th-century National Library building (founded in 1712) containing some of Spain's historical archives, the Teatro Real (Royal theatre), the Buen Retiro park, founded in 1631,Golden Triangle of Art, d Almudena Cathedral are only some of its famous sights and landmarks.

If you have the chance, don't forget to miss one of the famous Flamenco Shows in Corral de la Moreria. It is considered to be one of the most famous flamenco tablaos in the world.

You can find cheap airlines flying to Barajas International Airport, the nearest airport in the city.
