Three Spanish locations in Europe’s top 25 Travellers’ Choice destinations
01 April 2019 @ 17:46

THREE locations in Spain have made it into the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice top 25 European destinations, and one into the world’s top 25.

London wins both, and is a popular choice for Spaniards on city breaks and also those moving abroad to seek jobs – in fact, Britain is home to over a quarter of a million Spanish nationals, a high number of whom live in the capital.

Barcelona comes fifth, after Paris, Rome and the Greek island of Crete, in that order – both in the world and the Europe list.

Its entry on the Travellers’ Choice page recommends visitors do not miss seeing the Casa Amatller – an optical illusion of a house with an undulating façade that looks to be straight out of a Grimm’s or Andersen’s fairytale – the Bellesguard Tower, designed by Antoni Gaudí, the same architect who created the ultra-modern and quirky Sagrada Família cathedral, and the Barcelona History Museum, or MUHBA.

The description cites Gaudí’s influence and surrealist artist Salvador Dalí’s having spent time there, and mentions the spectacular, colourful mosaïc complex, the Güell Park, as well as ‘flamboyant street performers' and pavement cafés on Las Ramblas, the popular and animated pedestrianised tourist boulevard through the city centre.
