Spanish Food Markets – Visit the Best!

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!

Park Guell in Barcelona – Tickets to See Gaudí

Park Guell in Barcelona began charging an entrance fee in 2013 in a bid to restrict access and conserve the most iconic sections of the park. Most people working in tourism today think it was the only solution to the overcrowding at this popular location. Here at Totally Spain (we’re a Spain-based travel agent and specialist in custom travel to Spain since 2000), we agree with the fee. We think the park is well worth the entry price of 7.50 EUR but have a look for yourself and see whether you agree with us. (BTW The entry fee is waived for local residents who have footed the maintenance bills since it opened as a a public park in the 1920s.)

Savouring Real Spain in September – Fun, Festivals & Fine Wine

September is a great time to travel to Spain. It’s much quieter than the peak months of July and August when many Spaniards take their annual vacation. The weather in Spain is still warm enough to take advantage of the wonderful evenings but not so hot as to prevent you from sightseeing in the middle of the day. It’s much easier to secure hotel rooms with sea-views, to visit the popular monuments and enjoy long lazy lunches on outdoor terraces. And it’s when some of the best festivals take place! Living and working here in Spain as we do (Totally Spain is Spain-based travel agent and specialists in custom travel to Spain since 2000), we’re big fans of Spain’s September fiestas and here’s why:-

Sea Glass Collecting in Spain

We’ve worked in the travel business for many years here at Totally Spain and have long realised that people travel for very different reasons. This was reiterated to us when we recently prepared a package for a couple collecting sea glass. It wasn’t an activity we were familiar with before but there’s a whole world of people out there – walking the beaches, collecting the glass and displaying it or using it for jewellery and other crafts. So we thought we’d share a bit about it here in case it’s something you’d like to know more about…
