Taking a photo on a phone in Lanzarote, Canary Islands

Basically, fantastic and fairly unknown places to take the best photograph of your holiday. It doesn’t matter if you are a photography enthusiast and take your camera with you everywhere or if you take photos with your phone and immediately share them on social media. You will definitely love the photographs you take in these places.

  • El Melero Meander from the La Antigua viewpoint

    The area is a hikers' paradise. It is located in the Las Hurdes region in Extremadura, and you can access the La Antigua viewpoint on foot or by car to take in this breath-taking panorama.

  • The Red Wall of Calpe

    The colours, the contrast with the Mediterranean sea, its near-impossible shapes, its maze-like feeling... These tourist apartments are the work of architect Ricardo Bofill and are interesting to photograph from afar or with Penyal d’Ifac in the background.

  • The Tibidabo Ferris wheel or Barcelona from above

    With the city at your feet and with the Tibidabo Amusement Park in the foreground. You can also get two stunning perspectives. In the daytime with blue Mediterranean Sea in the background, and with the lights standing out at night.

  • A crystal palace in Madrid

    Hidden in Madrid’s Retiro Park, in front of a small lake surrounded by trees and gardens to relax in. The Glass Palace is an iron and glass building with numerous opportunities for taking photos: its transparent walls, reflections in the water, the surrounding trees, and contemporary art exhibitions held inside...

  • Roads with spectacular views like in Anaga, Tenerife

    There are roads that are walkways with incredible views. This is the case when descending the Anaga Rural Park on Tenerife in the Canary Islands. The area is classed as a Biosphere Reserve and its lush vegetation almost reaches the sea. Other roads in Spain to take amazing photos are the dizzying Sa Calobra (Mallorca), the flowery Valle del Jerte (Cáceres) during March and April, or the road connecting Tarifa and Algeciras (Cádiz) with views of the Strait of Gibraltar.

  • The Nervión waterfall is nearly 300m high

    The photos from this natural waterfall are fantastic but if you are a true instagrammer your stories will be a success with the surroundings and the sound of the water. The 270m drop makes it the highest waterfall on the Iberian peninsula. It is located between the Basque Country and Castile and Leon, and we would recommend visiting when it is raining or thawing because the waterfall has more water.

  • The lavender fields of Brihuega in Guadalajara

    If you like nature, you’ll like these views. And if you like to take photos, you will love it here, especially in July. Among the vast, fragrant lavender fields Brihuega holds concerts which help fill everything with magic. Here's a challenge: can you capture it on camera?

  • Sailing boats among buildings... the Bay of Santander

    One piece of information is enough to include Santander on the list of places to photograph: the bay belongs to the Club of the Most Beautiful Bays of the World. Would you like to take a photo as a souvenir? The best shot is from the end of Lope de Vega street, and if you go in winter when there’s snow, then the image is even more spectacular.

  • A trip to Mars... in Riotinto

    Mines in Riotinto, Huelva

    It is a small mining park in Huelva, but contrasting shades of ochre and limestone rock create textures which you will definitely mistake for Mars. And there is more: you can travel around the basin of the mining park on a 19th Century steam train. Can you picture the photo?

  • Eulogy to the Horizon in Gijón

    The impressive view has the Cantabrian sea in the background and the San Lorenzo and Poniente beaches in the foreground. However, this photo could be used for a metaphysical story. What does this sculpture by Eduardo Chillida mean? What do the seemingly simple 500 tonnes of concrete mean? From here you can hear the waves and maybe they will respond to you... They symbolise the connection between the earth and the sky, and give the impression of a boundless horizon.

  • The Cuevona that leads to Cuevas

    The Cuevona is a large cave that leads to Cuevas, a small village in Asturias which is only accessible through this cave. The route is about 300 metres long and if you know how to use the effects of light, we can assure you that you will get photos worthy of the history of the village at the end of the cave.

  • Los Arribes del Duero and its views of the river

    The Duero is the largest river in Spain and flows through an amazing canyon located between Salamanca and Zamora. It provides spectacular photos and you can take them from the viewpoints like las Barrancas, the Fermoselle castle, el Fraile, Mieza, the Almendra dam or the Requejo bridge, for example.
