  • Roman theatre in Mérida

    In January, of all the ideas we suggested on Facebook, the one everybody liked most was a tour of Mérida, a city with a fascinating Roman past. In fact, its theatre, amphitheatre, and temple to the goddess Diana make this one of Spain’s best-preserved archaeological sites. A great start to the year!

  • View of Peñíscola

    In February, many of you heard via our social media that the legendary Castle of the Antipope Benedict XIII in Peñíscola was one of the settings for the series “Game of Thrones”, standing in for the city of Meereen. In fact, it was the location chosen for the world première of the sixth season of the series. The actual history of this centuries old fortress and its association with the Knights Templar is even more fascinating than the fiction.

  • Paella

    Spanish food was one of the hot topics in March. More specifically, the paella recipes which all of you wanted to discuss and share. It’s no surprise that this is one of our most iconic dishes. By the way, the Spanish region which is most famous for its paellas and other rice dishes is the Valencian Community.

  • Façade of Casa Batlló decorated with flowers

    As spring arrived, we shared a beautiful photo of Gaudí’s Casa Batlló covered in flowers. This was for Barcelona’s fiesta of Sant Jordi (St George), held on 23rd April. He was a legendary knight who rescued a princess and slew a dragon whose blood turned into roses. This legend led to the custom of giving a rose on the feast day. In honour of the story, the shapes of Casa Batlló are reminiscent of the body of a dragon.

  • San Pablo bridge and Hanging Houses, Cuenca

    “Cross the bridge and discover Cuenca, a World Heritage City with more to offer than its Hanging Houses", we said in May. This post got hundreds of likes. Crossing this 60-metre high, 16th century stone bridge, with its 1902 iron walkway, is quite an experience.

  • Tapas

    15th June was World Tapas Day, and we posted a small list of 10 classic tapas: potato omelette, cured ham, bread with tomato, pintxo, gazpacho, cheese, patatas bravas, gilda, pescaíto frito and croquettes. The list proved very popular on Facebook that day, although really any day is good for going out for tapas in any town in the Madrid region, and enjoying these delicious snacks in a fun atmosphere.

  • Views of Santiago de Compostela cathedral

    As 25th July is the Day of St James, this was our excuse to talk about the famous Camino de Santiago [St James’ Way]. Have you ever taken this route? In the Middle Ages, the pilgrims going to Santiago Cathedral and the apostle’s tomb would have had a unique religious experience. Today, St James’ Way is still a popular hiking and cycling route for travellers from all over the world - while some go for religious reasons, others are there to make friends, or to find themselves. The important thing is the experience.

  • View of Ronda

    An aerial view of the beautiful town of Ronda and its famous bridge, perched nearly 100 metres up on the edge of a cliff was our most viral image in August. It’s impossible to resist the charms of this town in the province of Malaga. Its lovely winding streets, its good food and its sunsets have enchanted such great figures as Hemingway and Orson Welles.

  • Views of the Gran Vía

    In September, the city of Madrid reigned supreme on our Facebook page. We posted a photo like this one, of the crossroads of the Gran Vía with Calle Alcalá, with the iconic Metropolis building dominating the scene. This is one of the liveliest spots in a city which never sleeps, where there are always a thousand things to do.

    If you already know Seville, the memory will always make you sigh. If you don’t know it, you’re in for a treat. In October, our Facebook image you all shared most was the imposing cathedral of this Andalusian city. It’s one of the world’s largest churches, and for us, one of the most beautiful.

    Calle Larios in Málaga, at Christmas

    Málaga is so pretty at Christmas time, we said in December. And you seemed to agree. The photo you all liked most this month was this one of Calle Larios, full of lights. This town is lovely any time of year, but the Christmas decorations really make it glow.
