Spain,together with Portugal occupies the Iberian peninsular which is in southern Europe at the eastern end of the Mediterranean sea. The narrow isthmus with the rest of Europe is blocked by the Pyrenees mountain range in which the independent country of Andorra nestles. These mountains are popular with skiers in winter.
Most of Spain is on a high plateau including the majority of the old towns and villages which northern Europeans find so interesting. The other mountain range of note is the Sierra Nevada which is in Southern Spain and whose highest peak is almost 3,500 m high which also gives skiing most years,
The sun seekers go to the beaches on the east and south coasts of the country where the water is also warm. Only the hardy enjoy the cooler waters of the Atlantic which lap the north and west coasts of the country.
The weather in summer is hot and sunny and, because of the beaches, summer is the peak season for tourists. Those wanting to avoid the crowds should visit at other times of the year when places such as The Alhambra in Granada and The Grand Mosque in Cordoba are less crowded. Remember it is not for nothing that Seville has the nickname of the frying pan of Europe. While on this subject, if visiting Seville, why not stay at the Parador of Carmona and have the benefits of a castle of the Moors in a hilltop village.
