Exploring Spanish Culture
Spain is the world’s second country with the most UNESCO World Heritage cities and third in terms of natural areas declared Biosphere Reserves. Its extensive sandy beaches of the Mediterranean and Atlantic Ocean, as well as of its two archipelagoes (the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands, respectively) have been attracting visitors for decades.
In Spanish culture, people live life to the fullest. But, not in a hurried way. Instead, Spaniards tend to take their time, deliberately, to appreciate the world and people around them. In Spain, people savor long, multi-course meals and wander vivacious villages and charming cities.
Whether it’s the middle of the day or night, Spain is home to a vibrant street culture. Imagine neighbors strolling around their blocks, older people playing checkers on the sidewalks, and teenagers hanging out in plazas. And, with such abundant art, architecture, literature, cuisine, history, and more to explore, there’s a wealth of cultural experiences to enjoy.
