Hello my pumpkins!
I hope all of you is doing well, today I am sharing with you the wonders of Spain. During my one-week vacation in Spain, I visited several cities, therefore, I am going to talk about Spain city by city, not day by day.
Madrid was my least favorite city; for me, it looks like any other big cities, there’s nothing special in the architecture. We did visit the Plaza De Toros, which was quite interesting, even though I hate bullfighting, we also went to visit the stadium of Real Madrid, very impressive stadium and we walked around to go shopping [I did a lot of shopping].
After Madrid, we went to Cordoba for a few hours and I must say, it is a gorgeous city, I loved how the streets are structured and loved the white buildings. We also visited the Mosque-Cathedral with a tour guide, she explained to us the history of this cathedral and of this city. It was interesting to know that Muslims, christians and jews used to co-habit in peace.
Seville was definitely my favorite city because the architecture is so impressive, the narrow streets are beautiful and it’s very active: there are a lot of shops and restaurants. Furthermore, we visited the Cathedral, which is the third biggest cathedral in the world. It’s a very impressive and beautiful cathedral, with a gothic architecture [my favorite]. This cathedral was also a mosque during the Arab invasion.
At night, we went to see the flamingo show, it’s a such an amazing dance, I was blown away by the performance.
We honestly did not visit the city of Granada a lot, we only got to visit the Alhambra, which is a huge ‘town’ that contains a beautiful garden, ancient towers and ancient palaces. We were able to visit a few streets of this gorgeous city, and we discovered that cars are actually not allowed to drive inside the city, they have to go all around it to go to a specific restaurant or hotel.
Toledo is my second favorite city because I fell in love with the medieval architecture and how it’s located on a hill. Cars are also not allowed [they can’t anyways] to drive inside the mid-town and it’s not that active, like you can’t go shopping there, but it’s just so pretty to walk on those narrow medieval streets.
In general, I really loved Spain, this country has amazing landscapes, we went by bus from one city to another with stops so I really got to discover Spain. I also really loved the population, they are very nice and polite people but the majority of them, do not speak English, which was a little bit hectic. Concerning the weather, it’s pretty hot in October but in the morning and at night, it’s very cold.
That’s it for this post, don’t forget to give it a ‘like’ and to follow my blog if you enjoyed reading it.
