Spanish regions 4

Spanish regions 4

Today we’ll continue our venture into the various Spanish regions so as to get a better understanding of what exactly makes this country tick.

El Pais Vasco

This region of Spain is one of the most industrialized regions in the country, however it does feature some rather notable areas of untouched nature as well as its natural parks like Valderejo, Urkiola and Urdaibai.  There are some truly magical landscapes on the Guernica river, which make for a great region for hiking, riding as well as other kinds of mountain sports. One other attraction of the region is steep Cantabrian coast, but keep in mind to bring your raincoat to protect yourself from the ‘txirimiri’ which is a very fine rain typical to the region.

Extremadura

This region is made up of Caceres and Badajos with its capital at Merida, most well-known for its fantastic Roman ruins. The region is heavily characterized by the mountain ranges of the Cordillera Central, Montes de Toledo and Sierra Morena, as well as its plains and the fertile valleys of the Tajo and Guadiana rivers, and even the plain lands of Low Extremadura. The climate in the region is continental, with warm summers and colt winters, however the natural parks and preserves feature some astonishing ecological reserves which make for great visiting regardless of the time of year.

The great thing about the Extremadura is that it has yet to be affected by mass tourism, so it’s a nice place to visit in order to get a much better feel of actual popular customs and traditions, be it metal works and embroideries, or sampling the outstanding gastronomy.

Galicia

Probably the one region amongst these three that most of you may have heard of, Galicia is known for its many-many rivers. The region also has a coast, and one that offers quite a few contrasts as well, from smooth beaches to ominous cliffs. However the waters are rich in fish and sea food in general . There are other entertainment opportunities to be had as well, such as the beautiful beaches of the Rias Atlas or the natural preserves and balnearies of Rias Baixas.
