SPAIN

Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state and a member state of the European Union. It is located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. Its mainland is bordered to the south and east by the Mediterranean Sea except for a small land boundary with Gibraltar; to the north and north east by France, Andorra, and the Bay of Biscay; and to the west and northwest by Portugal and the Atlantic Ocean. It is one of three countries (Morocco, France) to have both Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines. Spains 1,214 km (754 mi) border with Portugal is the longest uninterrupted border within the European Union.

Spain is considered an exotic country in Europe due to its friendly inhabitants, relaxed lifestyle, its cuisine, vibrant nightlife, and world-famous folklore and festivities. Among many places worth visiting are Spains thriving capital Madrid, the vibrant coastal city of Barcelona, the famous "Running of the Bulls" at Pamplona, major Andalusian cities with Islamic architecture, like Seville, Granada and Córdoba, the Way of St. James and the idyllic Balearic and Canary Islands.

When to go:
Featuring the warmest climate on mainland Europe, there is no bad time to visit Spain. The peak tourist season is summer (June to August), when an amazing amount of foreign visitors flock to Spains famed beaches. The best time to visit Spain is probably during May or October, when the weather is generally warm and sunny, and the crowds are not as intense.
