Stretching across the Mediterranean and occupying part of the Iberian Peninsula, Spain is a country in Europe teeming with visual and cultural attractions. In fact, it comes second to Italy with the most number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world. Spain's cities are rich in traditions that make them unique from each other. This is due to the fact that Spain is positioned close to the African continent and Morocco, both of which had a profound influence in many of the cities in Spain. A lot of this external influence has ingrained itself in the country's history and culture. Because of this, a holiday to Spain is bound to be a memorable adventure. One of the very first stops on any travel to Spain is the country's capital, Madrid.
