Spain is so much more than Barcelona and Madrid.
Spain is Granada, Toledo, Valencia, Marbella and much more…
For all those who are not familiar with the Spanish cultural heritage, and with the wonderful small towns of the southern coast, here is a list of the most beautiful places that the UNESCO has declared are under the World Heritage list.
Spain is culturally amongst the richest countries in the world, presenting over 40 cultural sites – 44 to be more precise – among which 39 are historical, 3 are natural and 2 are both historical and natural.
If you are planning a holiday to this stunning country, I suggest you take a look at the following shots capturing Spain’s most beautiful places: from Barcelona to the smallest town on a remote mountain.
Among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites are: Doñana National Park, which was selected by the UNESCO in 1994; the Old Town of Santiago de Compostela, which joined in the World Heritage list in 1985; and Pyrénées – Mont Perdu, which has been under the UNESCO since 1997.
These three sites mentioned above are only few of the numerous hidden gems that Spain possessively protects and declares as part of the history of the country. If you really are organising a trip to Madrid or Barcelona, or even if you are curious to see what these places look like, just scroll down the page and have a look at the wonderful cultural sites!
