Sundays or ‘Domingos’ in Spain can be a tricky day for first-time visitors to the country. Our Totally Spain guide to a Typical Day in Spain gives some advice but to make it even easier, here’s our guide on what to do in Spain on Sundays, based on 18 years of designing custom trips here.
When most of us travel, we want to visit the ‘must-sees’ but we also want to hang out with locals doing non touristy things. It’s hard to strike a balance, so when we plan custom trips for Totally Spain clients (and we’ve been doing this since the year 2000), in addition to highlighting top attractions, we recommend many non touristy things to do in Spain so clients can get a sense of the Spain that we know and love.
If you are planning to visit Spain, you probably know the range of city destinations can be overwhelming. Here at Totally Spain, we’ve decided to highlight the best cities in Spain that are 100% deserving of your hard-earned time. In addition to visiting them ourselves frequently, we’ve been scheduling client trips to each of these locations since we set up in the year 2000 so they are well and truly road-tested. Scroll to the end for our Seven Suggested Itineraries that can streamline your journey from city to city!
Spurred on by the re-opening of the vertigo-inducing Caminito del Rey walking route complete with bridge, we’ve decided here at Totally Spain to pull together our favourite Spanish ‘puentes’ or bridges in Spain. We’ve got a bit of everything in here – Roman bridges, foot bridges, hanging bridges, toll bridges, bridges designed by starchitects and bridges that just have great personality or meaning. Some we’ve crossed this year – others we’re not sure we’ll ever cross (would that be the Caminito??) but they are all spectacular in their own special way.
If there’s one place we recommend our clients visit in every Spanish town, it’s the main square or plaza, often called the Plaza Mayor. Traditionally it’s where bullfights took place and it was often the location for outdoor foodmarkets and theatres too. Today it’s all about the café tables, the buzz, the people and the activities in the square.
