Take a look at the most breathtaking pictures of winter in Spain from this past week.

A week of icy temperatures saw much of Spain blanketed in snow. It brought chaos to the roads, forced the cancellation of flights and became the most talked about topic of conversation.

It also saw hundreds of beautiful images of a winter wonderland shared on social media. Here is our selection of some of the best.
