Holidays in Spain

Spain is not just sun sea sand and sangria

General Information

Situated in southern Europe, the Iberian Peninsula has an ideal climate. Most tourists to Spain will be pleased to find never-ending beaches, warm seas and a sunny weather. However Spain is not only for sunseekers. Its long history has left many sites and monuments for the curious visitor. The Romans recognised its importance as the bridging point to the African continent. As did the Moors. For a long time the Peninsular was ruled by Moors and to this day there is much evidence of this fusion of western and middle eastern culture.

Eating and Drinking Meals are generally hearty and consist of 4 to 5 courses. Spanish cuisine is characterised by the use of olive oil and lots of garlic in the cooking. Along the coast, fish and seafood constitute the main courses, while in the hinterland, lamb, rabbit and other meat dishes are generally served. ”Tapas” (appetisers) are typically Spanish, served at all hours. Lunch is served between 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm, dinner between 9 pm and 11 pm. Service is included, but it is common practice to leave a supplementary tip.
