Most of those who visit Spain opt to travel to the south of the country, where they can enjoy the sun and the heat of the Mediterranean, visit some incredible cities and go to beautiful beaches. But there’s more to Spain than just the South, and these seven pictures are will convince even South of Spain aficionados to board the next flight to the North of the country.
Pasai Donibane and Pasai San Pedro are located on two different sides of an estuary on the coast of the Basque Country. In these beautiful fishing villages, the pace of life is slow, the people are friendly, and the fresh fish is delicious.
The incredible Urdaibai Bird Centre, in the Basque Country, not only has incredible views, but is a fantastic research centre that monitors the life and migration of various species of birds.
Cantabria is considered the green heart of Spain, and it is easy to see why. Here, mountain villages are set against the mountains of the Picos de Europa, but there also are some charming coastal towns.
Who wouldn’t want to explore a lovely coastal town all built against the cliffs and overlooking the ocean? Cudillero, in Asturias, has breathtaking views.
Luarca is also known as the white city of Asturias, but to me it looks more on the colorful side. Completely gorgeous, nevertheless!
I guess the beaches of the South of Spain won’t be missed, when something like this is on offer! Asturias is just gorgeous.
There is little doubt that Playa de las Catedrales, in Galicia, is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
