Discover some of the best places to visit during your family holiday in Spain

Spain provides everything you need for the perfect family vacation


Barcelona, with around seven million visitors per year, is one of the European cities with the world's largest tourist draw. Modernist art, an architectural and decorative style that carries the unmistakable imprint of Antoni Gaud in Barcelona, is one of its most cherished charms.

Millions of people visit the Catalan capital to learn more about the work of this artistic genius, who translated art into various structures and spaces throughout the city, much to the delight of art enthusiasts. Following in Gaud's footsteps during a vacation to Barcelona is a highly suggested strategy to get to know this creative movement of previous centuries in-depth: Mila and Batlló, Casa Vicens, the Palace, the Sagrada Familia, and Park Güell are some of the highlights on this itinerary.

Many foreign visitors prefer Seville to Valencia since the former is one of the most attractive cities in the world, rich in culture and history. Valencia, however, is a great option for families with young children who enjoy spending time at the beach as well as those individuals who enjoy attending live and energetic nightclubs. Valencia is likewise hot in August, but not as much, because it has cooler evenings and there are many beaches where one can cool off in the ocean water.


The age-old Emerita Augusta is one of the places to explore when in Spain. This little hamlet near Badajoz serves as the capital of Extremadura and was founded in 25 BC during Roman administration. This archaeological site is now a World Heritage Site and definitely worth a family visit.

A weekend trip to Mérida during your Spain vacation is perfect for getting to know the city and all of its ancient monuments, which are in excellent condition. You can visit the house of Mitreo and the Columbariums, the theatre and amphitheatre, the citadel the manger of Santa Eulalia, the bridge, the temple of Diana, and the Roman circus.

Teide National Park

The Teide National Park, located in the centre of Tenerife, is the largest and oldest of the Canary Islands' four national parks. It is also the most frequented national park in Spain and Europe, with around three million visitors each year.

Lava flows, volcanoes, chimneys, and craters provide a stunning display of shapes and colours that fill visitors with awe. The entire park is a magnificent geological gem and benefits from the fact that it is easily accessible because it is relatively close to the European mainland.

A family tour of the natural park is pretty spectacular and quite memorable. The Caadas del Teide constitute a massive caldera roughly 17 kilometres in diameter, on which the Pico del Teide, the world's third-highest volcano, stands. The snow from the summit, along with the lava flows that pour down its slopes, creates a one-of-a-kind combination, and a spectacular sight. Another unique treasure in the world is the Teide Violet, the park's emblem, which can only be found at certain elevations, and a ride on the cable car is one of the most exhilarating experiences that await you in the Teide National Park.

A memorable family vacation in Spain that includes many of the country's highlights or top attractions necessitates at least ten days (or more if you can afford it). Two weeks in Spain, on the other hand, is more than enough time to immerse yourself in this Mediterranean country’s treasures, delicacies, and history.

The best time to visit Spain with your family is in the autumn or spring when the weather is pleasant. The months of April, May, June, September, and October are ideal for visiting this country with your children. Summers in Spain can be quite extreme, especially in inland towns like Madrid, Cordoba, and Seville.

It's important to note that there are some basic Spanish eating etiquette standards, such as slurping or burping, both of which are deemed impolite (or rude) in Spain. In general, Spain is a safe country to visit, with most crime events involving pickpocketing. However, you will have a great time in this country and will undoubtedly appreciate the exquisite cuisine, as well as the beaches and sights on your journey through this Iberian jewel.
