Best places to see in Spain

Maestranza Bullring
Landmarks
Are you a fan of human-bovine combat? If so, Maestranza’s the place for you. This hallowed arena is Spain’s high temple of bullfighting. Statues of great “toreros” line the perimeter, frozen in haughty poses. Inside, crimson barricades encircle the sandy space, silent witnesses to all manner of gory glory and bombastic swagger. It’s haunting, magnificent and very divisive.

Oceanografic
Attractions
It turns out that you don’t need to anger Don Corleone to sleep with the fishes. This enormous aquarium runs “Sleep with the Sharks” nights, where you can snooze while surrounded by these beasts. If you’re that way inclined, of course. Otherwise, you might want to plump for a wander round the tanks or a meal in the underwater restaurant. Surely that’s an offer you can’t refuse?
Accommodation near Oceanografic
Golden Tower
Monuments
Beautiful and functional. This 13th-century tower once protected Seville from invasion by river, with a giant chain strung across the Guadalquivir to stop hostile crafts. The chain’s gone now, but the tower remains. It’s quite the beauty. The dodecahedral outline seems to emerge from the ground, with the top tower poking above the petal-like crenulations like a flower in mid-bloom.
Accommodation near Golden Tower
Gelmirez Palace
Landmarks
Who was the Archbishop Gelmirez? After his official residence was ransacked, he ordered this palace’s 12th-century construction to hold him – and a legacy of archbishops in the centuries that followed. The upstairs dining room is famed for its magnificent corbels, the structures upon which its vaulted ceilings rest. They depict the rituals of courtly dining in vivid detail.
Accommodation near Gelmirez Palace
San Pablo Chruch
Landmarks
San Pablo is the third in Zaragoza’s triangle of churches. It’s notable for its cocktail of Gothic and Mudéjar architectural styles, which has been built upon for over 700 years. Like most buildings of the latter style, it’s built with geometric perfection and loaded with ornate details. Be sure to see its famed golden altarpiece that glistens in the sunlight.
Accommodation near San Pablo Chruch
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.
