Is Valentine’s Day inspiring you to plan a little get-away to somewhere special for a weekend of romance in Spain? Here at Totally Spain, we’ve been planning customised vacations that include romantic holidays, engagement proposals, weddings and honeymoons since we set up back in the year 2000. With all that experience under our belt, we though we’d share our insider tips on the perfect romantic break in Spain.
We’ve always been keen cooks and have been yet again gripped by the Masterchef series here in Spain. Last year, we signed up for cooking classes at a local Michelin-star restaurant in Cantabria and never miss out on the many cooking workshops in the region also where we always pick up some tips and tricks on selecting and preparing local ingredients.
2013 has been a challenging year for many in Spain but one sector that has really bucked the downturn is tourism. Overall visitor numbers are up significantly and here at TotallySpain.com we have seen our numbers increase too. As we approach 2014, Ken Baldwin & Belen Encinas, the founders of Totally Spain, talk us through the past 12 months.
If you’ve ever wondered what Spanish food markets look like, you’re in the right place. We have five very different videos of food markets in Spain so you can get a sense of the variety of locations, the types of food and some of the more unusual events taking place at these amazing spaces. The most famous market has to be the Boqueria in Barcelona which draws huge crowds every day but more and more of our Totally Spain clients are asking us to include the lesser known food markets in their gastronomy tours in Spain. We’ve been smitten by these places since we started out in the year 2000 and we’re sure you will be too!
Planning your Spain vacation but can’t decide what to visit? We have rounded up the best videos of Spain’s top 10 most visited monuments and attractions to tempt you. Because if a picture paints a thousand words, then a great video with a moving soundtrack, does that and so much more. And that might help you decide the types of monuments and museums you want to include in your trip!
