Best places to see in Spain

Museum of Galician People
Museums
A surprise waits just beyond the city’s walls. Tucked away inside the Convent of Santo Domingo de Bonaval, this museum describes the lives of the Galician people, residents of the Iberian Peninsula for two millennia. Their material culture is depicted in costumes, paintings and sculptures. There’s also an interactive exhibit that takes you on an exciting virtual pilgrimage.

Puente de Piedra
Landmarks
To every "Zaragozano", this bridge needs no introduction. It links the two halves of the city, and allows pedestrians and cyclists to cross the rushing Ebro River. However, it's mostly known as a plum spot for an evening stroll, where walkers stop to savour the city views. It's common to see canoodling couples surveying the Basilica of Our Lady Pilar here at dusk.

Museum of Pilgrimage
Museums
Good things come in small packages. This pint-sized museum is the perfect place to learn about the city’s culture – and its famous sites of Catholic pilgrimage. Its exhibitions cover the gamut of religious artefacts, from golden triptychs to stone deities across eight separate rooms. Housed in the 14th-century “Gothic House”, it’s only a few metres from the cathedral.

City of Arts & Sciences
Landmarks
Crazy curves. These spaceship-like buildings bend minds with their arcing roofs and reflective pools. Built at an eye-watering cost in the 1990s, they gave Valencia an instant kick into the future. Inside these sugar-white shells lie an IMAX cinema, an auditorium and an aquarium. This place is a photographer’s dream ticket, whether for funky selfies or artsy angles.

La Seo Cathedral
Landmarks
"Leo Seo" traditionally plays second fiddle to the Basilica of Our Lady Pilar next door. Why is another question. Also known as "Cathedral del Salvador", its interior is a Baroque, Renaissance and Gothic smoothie – a wide open space to fit a congregation, strong curves, elaborate decoration, and a magnificent, golden high altarpiece ornamented with biblical scenes.
Accommodations near La Seo Cathedral
Hospital of the Catholic Monarchs
Landmarks
Isabela and Ferdinand are two of Spanish history’s biggest names. These 15th-century monarchs ordered the construction of this hospital. Like a modern-day spa without the treatments, it was a point of rejuvenation for worn-and-weary pilgrims who’d arrived in the city via the “Way of St. James”. It’s a hotel these days, but maintains its magnificent original door.
