Totally Spain has been based in Northern Spain since we set up back in the year 2000 and we can attest to the fact that few things are more pleasurable than discovering the seafaring villages on the coast of Northern Spain. Of course, the coastal cities such as Bilbao, San Sebastian, Santander, Gijon, Coruña and Vigo are amazing too – but we recommend combining these with some of the charming little maritime jewels of Green Spain that are so perfect for bracing walks, indulgent seafood lunches and the authentic flavour of real Spain. Read on to find out which are our favourite fishing villages in Northern Spain…

Gastronomic traditions are respected here and great thought often goes in to the appearance, ceremony and overall presentation of food.

Here at Totally Spain, our eight favourite churches feature the heavy hitters but we have a few surprises too. One is a combination of a palace and monastery, another is a former mosque and we also include Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia which is actually not a cathedral (although mist people think it is!) All eight are located inside UNESCO World Heritage sites so there’s plenty to see and do both inside and outside the walls of these religious monuments.
