Its numerous castles, beaches and small villages are enough to qualify Spain among the most romantic destinations in the world. Whether you are looking for the tranquillity of a mountain village or a hot, half-deserted beach, whether you’re planning a surprise weekend escape or the wedding of your dreams, Spain will live up to your expectations.

Lanzarote

Just like its more famous neighbour Tenerife, Lanzarote is part of the Canary Islands.

As one of Europe’s most famous beach destination, Majorca has lots of luxury hotels and splurge restaurants, but romantic couples looking for privacy can also find lots of small isolated beaches and quaint villages.

Grenada

You might be wondering why, of all cities in Spain, I chose Granada as the most spectacular? Well, because, more than any other place on Spain, Grenada leaves you the impression that you have stepped in a totally new world. There is no other place where the Moorish architecture is so well represented, and the marvellous Alhambra palace casts a shadow of grandeur and mystery over the whole city. Renting a small apartment with a view over Grenada’s old streets is like an ode to beauty and romanticism.

Besalu

Besalu is just one of the numerous historic small towns in Spain that attract visitors with their medieval charm. Besalu, located on the coast of Catalonia, has thousands of history behind it: its church is over 1000 years old. The big attraction in Besalu is the stone bridge over Fluvia River, considered to be a remarkable example of the Romanesque architectural style – a style from the Middle Ages. With a very compact and beautifully preserved old center, Besalu is close to an open air-museum.
