Some of the popular areas of Spain include Madrid, Seville, Barcelona, Bilbao, Alicante, Granada, Malaga, Valencia and San Sebastian, among others, of course.

Whether you're looking to tour a busy city or laze on a beautiful sandy beach, Spain has the answer.

Madrid, the country's capital, is brimming with museums and art, so be sure to check it out if you're an art lover. There's the Golden Triangle of Art, which is three museums - the Prado Museum, the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum and the Reina Sofia Museum. You can also see the Royal Palace of Madrid, tour Real Madrid's famous football stadium or relax in one of the city's parks or gardens.

Seville, Spain's fourth largest city, is rich in history and a must see here is the amazing cathedral and its bell tower, the Giralda. Seville is also said to be the tapas capital of the world, so be sure to sample some delicious food and drink while you're there.

The historic city of Barcelona is perfect for a short break. It has some lovely Gaudi architecture to gaze at and some interesting museums, too. It's also an ideal location for a beach holiday, as it has 4.2km of sandy beaches situated just 10 minutes from the centre of the city!

Another popular visitor attraction is the Guggenheim Museum in the city of Bilbao, which is located in the Basque Country. It's a must for art lovers. While you're in Bilbao, take the opportunity to try some pintxos, which are like tapas.

Alicante, along the Costa Blanca, is a well known destination which has miles of sandy beaches to offer its visitors. Its mild climate is one reason why so many people come to visit. But if you want to do more than just lie on a beach all day, then the city of Alicante has no shortage of things to see and do. There's the castle to visit, various parks to enjoy, museums to see and a wealth of restaurants in which to dine.

The city of Granada, meanwhile, boasts the stunning Alhambra Palace, that was once the home of the Arabic Sultans and is today a major tourist attraction. You can take a tour of the Alhambra and view the amazing architecture for yourself.

Malaga is another popular area with tourists. The city has a cathedral, a market, the Picasso Museum, numerous other museums, and the harbour and castle, too.

Malaga is just one of the many popular tourist destinations situated on the Costa del Sol. There's also Marbella, Puerto Banús, Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Fuengirola, Mijas and more. The Costa del Sol is perfect if you're after a beach holiday, as it has many excellent beaches to discover. The kids will love them, too.

Valencia is an ideal destination to relax and unwind. It has a lovely old town which has gardens, squares, museums and historic buildings to explore. Apparently, Valencia is where paella was invented, so, it's not surprising that there's no shortage of restaurants, cafes and tapas bars in this great city. Why not try some paella while you are there!

San Sebastian is another great beach holiday destination. The best beach here is said to be Playa de Concha, which is not only popular for sunbathing, but also for swimming and water sports.

Spain also has much more to offer those wanting a sports holiday. There's plenty of golf available, as well as fishing, horse riding, scuba diving and other activities. Many people don't realise that Spain has good skiing facilities, too. The ski resort Sierra Nevada, for example, is worth checking out.

The Canary Islands, which are part of Spain, are also popular holiday destinations. There are seven islands to discover - Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera, El Hierro and Fuerteventura. They are all worth a visit and if you're looking for a Spanish holiday property rental, there's no shortage of accommodation there.
