With more than 8000 km of coastline, Spain has thousands of beaches, from tiny rocky coves to long strips of golden sand. Which is fabulous, seeing as Spain is also Europe’s sunniest county! The coastal resorts of the Mediterranean enjoy, on average, more than 300 days of sunshine each year – well into the autumn and winter months.
Segovia is a UN World Heritage Site, not simply for the aqueduct, but also for its medieval architecture, from palaces and cathedrals to monasteries and taverns.
