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 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.
If you love Spain, you’re going to adore Extremadura. It’s got everything you want from a trip to Spain – interesting history, stunning landscapes, a blend of old and new architecture, and amazing food and fun. Although you may not be familiar with the name – it’s a popular destination with Spanish tourists for its Roman ruins and its connection with the Discovery of the Americas.
