Spain Destinations: Beautiful Landscapes By Region

Basque Country

The Basque Country, on the northern part of Spain, features mountains and valleys that are a green paradise for nature lovers. There are nature parks throughout the region, which are close at hand and accessible for visitors.


Galicia, located in the west of Spain, is surrounded by both the Atlantic Ocean and the Cantabrian Sea. Galicia is a region famous for its landscapes of beautiful green forests, lush valleys, wild beaches and ancient lighthouses.

Castilla y Leon

Castilla y Leon is located between Madrid and the Portuguese border and it is Spain’s largest region. Even though Castilla y Leon is considered by many as just an endless area of vast open horizons or arid hills and valleys, there are some hidden spots that thrive during the rainy season in spring.

Castilla La Mancha

Castilla La Mancha is located in the center of Spain just south of Madrid. The landscape consists mainly of a vast plateau, dotted with ancient castles, beautiful windmills and large lagoons.

Canary Islands

Known for their spectacular beaches with calm, crystal-clear water and beautiful weather year-round, Canary Islands offer the visitor an extraordinary variety of landscapes. The volcanic origin of the islands contrasts with lush ancient forest and an impressive coastline.

Balearic Islands

White, sandy beaches, calm turquoise waters, picturesque coves and an almost perfect weather make the Balearic Islands one of the most popular destinations in Spain.


Andalusia is a diverse region between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean that provides the visitor with many options:  magnificent national parks, miles of sandy coastline, unique architecture, snow-capped mountains and the only desert in Europe.


Located in the north of Spain, Cantabria is not as well known as some of Spain’s other regions but it offers a bit of everything: from impressive mountain ranges, deep green valleys to rocky beautiful coastlines.
