The country proves that its charms go far beyond the cultural capital Madrid or the architectural Barcelona, and cradle of Modernism.
Beach destination: Costa Brava
Between Barcelona and the French border, the Spanish coast forms dramatic rocky inlets, which shape short beaches with crystal-clear water.

The gateway to the region is historic Girona, but it is worth focusing on the little gems along the way, with names like Begur.
Field destination: Pyrenees
The Pyrenees mountain range, with more than 400 kilometers in length, cuts through different regions and poetically draws the natural border between Spain and neighboring France.
