Often noisy, steeped in history and brimming with life – it’s hard to describe what an assault on the senses street life can be for foreigners in Spain.
For the most part, the art of callejear – wandering through the streets with no ultimate purpose but to just enjoy- is one that extranjeros (foreigners) are drawn to just as much as locals.
Choosing the most beautiful streets in Spain is no easy task as there are probably hundreds that could make the cut.
Luckily, Spain’s tourism board Turespaña has compiled a list which according to their team of experts are the prettiest streets in the country, from vast tree-lined ramblas to narrow alleyways carved out of the natural surroundings.
So when travel around Spain is easier again, make sure to add some of these beautiful Spanish streets to your bucket list.
