Plaza Mayor in Chinchón (Madrid) © Miguel Ángel Muñoz Romero. Turismo de Chinchón

Small medieval villages, old quarters steeped in history and beautiful rural areas close to large cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville and Bilbao. Give yourself a break, leave your stress behind and immerse yourself in the pleasures of slow tourism. These are perfect places to discover interesting traditions, popular festivities and the most typical cuisine.

Here are some of Spain's charming towns. There are lots to discover all over the country. Inland you can find medieval villages and towns which still preserve part of their Roman or Moorish past. Close to Madrid you can visit small rural cities in the mountains. In Andalusia and Extremadura you will come across many whitewashed villages. In Catalonia, the Region of Valencia and the Region of Murcia there are fishing villages, and towns in the fertile agricultural regions. In the regions of Aragon, Castile-La Mancha, Castile-León, La Rioja and Navarre you can find villages where time seems to have stood still. In the north, in Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria and the Basque Country, rural life and fishing villages are the main things you will see. And, of course, the Balearic and Canary Islands also have small charming villages that still keep their local traditions.
