Flowers and butterflies

¿Sabes lo que se dice en España? ¡Que la primavera la sangre altera! Y es que en esta época hay más horas de luz, los paisajes están preciosos y las terrazas de los bares se llenan de gente con ganas de salir. Hay planes atractivos para esta estación. Por ejemplo, puedes viajar al Valle del Jerte (en Extremadura) y experimentar lo que significa tener dos millones de cerezos en flor a tu alrededor. También te encantará hacer senderismo y contemplar los paisajes de los Lagos de Covadonga, el Lago de Sanabria, los Arribes del Duero (donde puedes subirte a un barco turístico), Ordesa y Monte Perdido o las Tablas de Daimiel. Quizá también te apetezca visitar alguno de nuestros jardines botánicos. Si hablamos de fiestas populares, con la entrada de la primavera llega la Semana Santa y más adelante se celebran la Feria de Abril de Sevilla y la Fiesta de los Patios de Córdoba, donde puedes dar un paseo por preciosos patios adornados con macetas de geranios, claveles y jazmines. Y siguiendo con las flores, en junio también se celebra el Corpus Christi y en lugares como San Cristóbal de La Laguna, Sitges o Ponteareas adornan las calles con enormes alfombras hechas con pétalos. Para obtener más información sobre cada uno de estos planes, sólo tienes que pinchar en la imagen o el texto que más te interese.
