Head off to Gúdar Javalambre, a little visited corner of Spain in rural Teruel which is home to Spain’s truffle industry. The season draws to a close at the end of March so it’s the last chance to explore sleepy historic villages such as Mora de Rubielos and discover the secret of Spain’s pungent black diamonds.

If you love nature and feel happiest with a pair of binoculars hanging from your neck then Easter week is one of the best times to consider a birdwatching trip. Whether it’s a trip to Extremadura’s Monfragüe, home to the biggest colony of Black Vulture and Spanish Imperial Eagle in the entire world or the wetlands of Donaña with over 300 bird species, you won’t be disappointed.
