Spain, a country full of romance.

Spain is located on the southwestern Iberian Peninsula in Europe, facing Africa across the Strait of Gibraltar to the south and the Mediterranean Sea to the east. Follow my footsteps and let's go. Seville is a city with a rich historical heritage, which embodies the passion, freedom, charm and various styles of Spain. Let's take a closer look at this charming city of Seville. The Seville Cathedral is the most famous building in Seville and one of the "Three Great Cathedrals of the World" along with St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican and St. Paul's Cathedral in London. The site of the cathedral was originally a mosque, which was demolished by Christian rulers in the late 14th century and took about a hundred years to rebuild this grand cathedral. It was listed as a World Heritage Site in 1987, and the remains of the navigator Columbus are buried in the cathedral's crypt. [Plaza de España + Maria Luisa Park]Located in the tranquil and fresh atmosphere of Maria Luisa Park in the southern part of the city, the crescent-shaped classical architecture stands elegantly among the greenery, making it the most popular recreational spot for Seville citizens. The scene of the square, suitable for both quiet and lively activities, can be fully appreciated under the cover of yellow carriage wheels, which is intoxicating. [Flamenco Dance]When visiting the birthplace of Flamenco in Seville, how can one miss this wonderful performance. The birthplace of bullfighting art - Ronda, the old city of Ronda stands on a towering cliff, giving people a thrilling sense of grandeur. The Nuiebo Bridge spans the canyon and connects the old and new city streets in a very natural and appropriate way. This small city is peaceful and simple, and most of the attractions are in the old city. Ronda's fame is due to the prosperity of bullfighting culture and the American literary giant Hemingway. In his bullfighting-themed novel "Death in the Afternoon", he wrote: "If you want to go to Spain for your honeymoon or elope with someone, Ronda is the most suitable place, and the entire city is a romantic scenery..." It can be seen that this small town built on a cliff has such unique charm. You can stroll on the new bridge, see the bullring of the birthplace of bullfighting, and enjoy the view of the cliff on the Taholin shady walkway. Ronda is a place that needs to be savored slowly. It is also necessary to enjoy the most famous cuisine in the Andalusia region of southern Spain: [Special Oxtail Meal]. White Mountain City [Mihass] (about 1 hour visit): This lovely little town has very pleasing houses: white walls with red tiles, the whole town unfolds along the gently sloping foothills of the mountain, and its unique architectural style attracts photography enthusiasts from all over the world. Mihass's pure white and flawless romantic scenery also attracts people to come here for honeymoon trips, hoping that love can also return to the most flawless beauty because of the clean atmosphere here. Picasso's hometown - Malaga, visit the "Malaga Beach", where you can take a leisurely stroll on the sandy beach of the sunny coast and listen to the sound of the sea. The city of pomegranates, Granada, is a famous historical site that blends Muslim, Jewish, and Christian styles, making it a cultural and tourist hotspot in Spain. It was the political and cultural center of the Moorish kingdom established by Muslim Moors on the Iberian Peninsula, and is the pride of Andalusia, Spain, and a holy place in the hearts of Muslims. The Alhambra Palace, whose name comes from Arabic, meaning "Red Castle," is a representative of Arab-style palace courtyards, located on the Nevada Mountains outside Granada. The Alhambra Palace, a perfect combination of Islamic architecture and gardening, was selected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site as early as 1984. People who come to Granada are mostly there for the Alhambra Palace, listening to the guitar piece "Alhambra Palace," standing on the mountain and looking out over the entire city of Granada and the snow-capped Nevada Mountains behind them, the beauty of which makes people reluctant to leave. Andalusia's another gem - Cordoba, the ancient Roman bridge and the Great Mosque of Cordoba are still in use today. The ancient Roman bridge, which has 16 arches, was originally built in the 1st century and underwent various degrees of renovation from the 13th to the 19th century. The Hundred Flower Lane is a quiet alley near the mosque in the Jewish quarter, which is a typical and peaceful alley in Cordoba. Unlike other areas in Andalusia, Cordoba is a city full of flowers, and everyone in the small town knows, loves, and grows flowers. This can be seen in the Hundred Flower Lane, where flowers hang on the walls, flower pots sit on the windowsills, and the fragrance of flowers permeates the narrow and winding alleyways. Don Quixote's windmill village - Consuegra: 11 large and small windmills stand on the undulating hills, guarding a medieval castle, making people feel like they are in the era of medieval knight culture; these windmills are all made of stones and painted white, each round windmill base looks like a turret, appearing very sturdy; the windmills are about ten meters high, with huge wooden blades installed on the stone bases, against the backdrop of blue sky and white clouds, they look very spectacular. World Heritage Site - Toledo. It is an ancient city that still retains the medieval style and is known as the "City of Three Cultures". From the prosperous ancient Roman streets, Jewish churches, Arab city gates, to the Catholic Gothic-style Goethe Church, and the Alcazar that witnessed the baptism of the Spanish Civil War, Toledo shows great charm with its well-preserved splendid historical and cultural heritage. UNESCO has listed it as a world heritage site. Toledo Cathedral is one of the largest Catholic cathedrals in the world and the pinnacle of Gothic art, as well as the best witness to history. The Puente de San Martin is a medieval bridge located on the Tagus River, built in the 13th century and named after the bishop of the diocese, San Martin, with Mudéjar architectural style. It is recommended to cross the bridge and take a panoramic photo of the beautiful Toledo with the Tagus River as the background. Football fans celebrate + incredible Madrid ~~~~ In this mysterious city that is immersed in the day and lost at night, you can see magnificent palaces, squares, and monasteries, and art lovers can also wander in various museums. The Madrid Royal Palace and the Spanish Art Palace - [Prado Museum *] are known as the three major museums in the world along with the Louvre in Paris and the British Museum in London, and have the most precious art works in Spain and even in Europe. The most famous [Madrid Royal Palace *] is the official residence of the Spanish king. Each room is like a work of art, with velvet wall decorations and exquisite ceiling murals. It also collects famous works by the painter Goya. [Puerta del Sol Square + Mayor Square] Puerta del Sol Square is semi-circular, meaning the rising sun. There is a "zero point" (Kilometro Cero) sign here. All the national highway milestones in Spain start from here and are calculated outward, and the door numbers of Madrid are also based on this point. Mayor Square, near Puerta del Sol Square, was built during the Habsburg dynasty. The main building of the main square is the House of the Bakery (Casa de la Panaderia), which serves as a municipal and cultural function, and the exterior is covered with murals. Segovia is the most spectacular World Heritage city in Spain. In "Notes on Traveling in Spain", Linda said, "Seeing the ancient Roman aqueduct, the money spent on air tickets from the United States to Spain is worth it." In addition to its magnificent architecture, this small city is also famous for its delicious roasted suckling pig. The aqueduct was built in ancient Roman times and is still well-preserved. It is 813 meters long, divided into two levels, with 148 arches, and 30.25 meters above the ground, with extraordinary momentum. The Alcazar Castle is located at the western end of Segovia and is the prototype of the castle in the Disney animation "Sleeping Beauty". The Michelin-recommended restaurant, Candido Restaurant, offers a special roasted suckling pig meal. This restaurant has a history of more than 200 years since its opening in 1786. Very few cities are known as "someone's city", but Barcelona is known as Gaudi's city. Gaudi's architecture makes this city so unique and shining, and this city is also the place where he devoted his life and rested his soul. The Sagrada Familia is Gaudi's lifelong masterpiece, started in 1884 and still under construction after a century. The 170-meter-high tower, colorful mosaic decorations, spiral staircase, and vivid statues on the wall make the huge building look very light. Park Guell is where Gaudi transferred his amazing talent from architecture to garden planning. As soon as you enter the main gate of the park, you can see the lizard sculpture that often appears in travel guides. Going up the steps, you will discover a colorful surrealistic paradise, and Gaudi's former residence is also located here. Casa Mila is Gaudi's last private residence design, with three wavy walls, twisted iron bars and iron plates forming the balcony railings, and large windows that are very eye-catching. The six floors, top floor, and rooftop terrace of Casa Mila are open to the public, and the rooftop chimney is very special. From the balcony, you can also overlook some streets in the city center and see the Sagrada Familia in the distance. Casa Batllo is the blue telephone house transformed by Gaudi, and its design inspiration comes from the Catalan folk story of Saint George slaying the dragon to save the princess. The romantic trip to Spain is coming to an end. Spain, Europe
