Do you have a story to tell about your area of Spain, or can you recommend a local book, recipe, or piece of music? We're asking our readers to share their Spain, so that we can all 'travel the country' from our own homes.


It's easy to feel as if our world has got a little smaller over the past few months. Many people have had to cancel eagerly anticipated visits to Spain, and those of us living here are unable to explore much beyond our own neighbourhoods.

Summer celebrations won't be the same, and many of the events we have been looking forward to are cancelled, while many of us are directly affected by the coronavirus and its consequences.

Our readers live all over Spain, and no one knows the quirks and wonders of this country like the people who live here. So tell us – how can people experience your region from their own home?

Maybe there's a local band we can listen to, or a book that will transport us to your neighbourhood. Perhaps you can share a regional recipe or craft that anyone can try wherever they're located. Can you teach us a word or phrase in the local dialect, or give some insight into a local proverb?

Or have you got a tale of your region to share? Whether it's centuries-old folklore or the story of the moment you first felt at home there, we're listening.

We will collect some of the responses and publish them in the form of virtual guides to Spain's regions, here on The Local, supplemented with tips from our own team.
