Traveling Virtually

Spain from home

No matter whether you are in the middle of planning a new trip to Spain or simply daydreaming of visiting one day – modern technological advances allow one to get the first glimpse of a new country while sipping a morning coffee on the way to work. Visualizing your favorite destinations these days is easier than ever – you can keep feeding your Spain wanderlust at any time.

If Spain is one of your favorite destinations (like it was for me, before turning into an expat) – you will be happy to find out that there are many ways to keep your relationship with this country alive from a distance. You can start improving your Spanish, get new coffee table books, follow inspiring Spanish travel blogs … or even read popular contemporary novels, Spain travel quotes, and binge-watching Spanish TV shows, as Spaniards do. Even listening to the Spanish music (no matter whether it´s romantic songs or vintage records) is a joy of its kind.

Not only are all of the mentioned activities extremely wanderlust-fueling, but they are essential for gaining unique cultural insights and learning more about Spanish habits.

Most of the Gaudi architectural creations offer their own virtual experiences, like Sagrada FamiliaCasa Batllo, and La Pedrera.

Most of the touristic sights in Andalusia can be seen via juntadeandalucia.es.

When it comes to Seville, one of my favorite places in Spain, you simply can´t miss the Alcázar of Seville, The Cathedral of Seville, and Sevilla en 360 (including La Catedral de Sevilla and Museo y Basílica de la Hermandad de la Macarena).

Moreover, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, Granada´s Alhambra, offers an interactive map online.

Extremadura is one of the lesser-known regions in Spain. Nevertheless, you might already know that my recent Extremadura road trip was full of experiences that made it to the list of 2022 Spanish favorites. So, this autonomous community might end up surprising you as well.

Extremadura Virtual is a great web to explore most of the unique landmarks in the region, including Caceres, Dolmen de Lacara, and the stunning natural landscapes of Valle del Jerte (known for some of the most beautiful flower blossoms in Spain).

Aragon

Aragon is one of my favorite areas to find hidden gems for my Undiscovered Spain blog series. The region includes the provinces of Huesca, Teruel, and Zaragoza: but the part that I can never get enough of is the Spanish Pyrenees of Aragon.

To my surprise, I´ve recently discovered a great website with must-see sights in the region of Aragon – aragonvirtual.es, including cathedrals, castles, and expositions.

Nature lovers can´t miss Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park, Routes of Zaragoza, Jaraba, and Minas de Ojos Negros.

Cantabria

While Cantabria is a must-stop on every Northern Spain Itinerary and is full of adventurous family activities, as well as stunning beaches, a separate trip to this region is still in the plans for my family.

The main city of the Cantabria region, Santander, can be checked online via Santander virtual tour. A few local landmarks also offer virtual experiences – Palacio de la Magdalena, Botin Centre, Museo de Prehistoria, and Museo Etnográfico de Cantabria.

Moreover, via the web centros.culturadecantabria.com you can enjoy some unique Spain virtual tours: Palacio de Sobrellano y Capilla Panteón, Juilóbriga y Museo Domus, Centro de Interpretación del Románico, Torre del Infantado.

The famous Way of Saint James (or Camino de Santiago in Spanish) also goes through Cantabria. The local government of Cantabria offers virtual insights into some of its most interesting places – Camino de Santiago por el Norte.

Spain’s virtual tours make the impossible possible in the case of the famous Altamira Caves. You might know that since 2001 visitors can enjoy the replica of the cave, and only a small number of people is allowed inside the original caves every year (there´s a 3-year waiting list to visit). But you might consider exploring the original cave on a virtual tour.

Galicia

The Canary Islands

Spain Virtual Tours The Canary Islands

While I find the Canary Islands extremely inspiring visually and love their mysterious legend of the 9th secret island, so far I have only managed to visit Tenerife, Lanzarote, and Fuerteventura. So, it was great to explore a bit of La Palma and La Gomera at least online.

What about you? Do you check up on new places virtually, before setting off for a new adventure?
