May through September is a great time to  visit because of the great weather and the many celebrations and  festivals. The southern part of the country has the great weather from  April to October. August is the hottest time of year and is most felt  along the coast and Peninsula.

The island of Ibiza, Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia are the  top places to visit in Spain. Barcelona is the most visited city, known  for its museums, culture, nightlife and food. An annual festival, the  Festes de la Merce is a four day event with partying in the streets. In  Madrid there are free films, concerts and plays during the summer. During the Fiera de San Isidro celebration held in May, there is  dancing, music, bullfighting, operas, and concerts to enjoy.

Valencia has bike  tours that are worth it to see the mix of modern and historical  architecture. There is the City of Arts and Sciences that has the  largest aquarium in Europe, made up of six buildings. The buildings in  the City are artwork themselves. Even the covered walkway is beautiful,  as is the science museum and opera house.

The small  island of Ibiza has shopping at its Hippy markets, salt flats and  villages with all white buildings.

In fact, it was once called the white  island. It is most known for its party scene but there are places for  family fun as well. The beach resorts will typically have a kids play  area.

The bull run of Pamplona is one of the main tourist attractions in Spain. Each year an estimated one million people come to  the festival of San Fermin to watch or participate in the bull run. The  festival takes place from July 6-14. The oldest bullring is in Ronda and  it has a bullfighting museum as well. Andulucia has great beautiful mountain views and Flamenco music. Las Ramblas is a pedestrian street  with outdoor markets and live performance artists. Tenerife has an  active volcano.

Another must see are the beaches. There are miles of coastline in two  different waters. At the north is the Atlantic Ocean and at the south is  the Mediterranean Sea.

San Sebastian is a great city beach. Costa del  Sol is beautiful with warm, calm waters of the south but is full of  tourists. Costa Brava is near Valencia and has white sand and turquoise  water. The Balearic Islands and Costa Verde have more rocky beaches.

More Spain travel advice is that the work day is split, starting  about 9:00 in the morning and breaking about 2:30 for lunch. Things  reopen about 5:00. Dinner is about 9:00 at night. Remember to see the  castles, there are many to visit with more than 2,500 still standing.  Some are in ruins while other have been restored. They give a look into  the different times of history.
