Last Updated on September 14, 2022 by Nicole

Most of us look forward to long warm summer days, especially if we live somewhere where winters are cold, snowy and damp.

Even when summer temperatures are reasonable, the humidity – the amount of moisture in the air – may be so extreme that the actual heat that you are feeling is actually several degrees higher than what the thermostat is showing. Some of us are thrilled with this kind of blistering heat while others dream about cool breezes and destinations with mild temperatures. If you wish for cooler summer temperatures, is there anywhere in Europe that you can go? Absolutely! Here are 24 of the best places to visit in Europe for mild summer weather.

Bruges, Belgium

By Mal from Raw Mal Roams

With mild temperature and plenty of sunshine, Bruges is one of the best places to visit in June, July and August when other destinations in Europe are experiencing extreme summer heat. Bruges is also a very compact city with all its major attractions and historical sites close together. This makes it an excellent city to leisurely explore on foot.

Start exploring the city from its main square, the Markt, which is surrounded by colourful townhouses with iconic triangular stepped gable roofs for which Bruges is known. Climb up the 300 stairs of the Belfry tower for epic views of the city. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and dates back to the 13th century.

For a different perspective of Bruges, take a boat tour through its picturesque canals, including one of the most beautiful spots in Bruges, the Quay of the Rosary Viewpoint.

Bruges is also a great city for foodies, with many excellent restaurants serving Belgian and French cuisine. Try De Gastro restaurant, a family owned restaurant with relaxed ambiance or the Park Restaurant, for a more sophisticated and romantic meal.

A visit to Bruges would not be complete without sampling delicious Belgian waffles served with your choice of fruits, chocolate and whipped cream. And, if you want to taste an original Belgian hot chocolate, visit the Old Chocolate House. You won’t go hungry in this incredible city.

Weather And Directions

In the summer months, the weather in Belgium is very mild, with daily high temperature not exceeding 70 degrees Fahrenheit. There is little to no humidity.

Bruges International Airport is situated 33 km away from the city, and it’s well connected by public transport. However, the airport is small and only connects with a few international destinations. Accordingly, if you can’t find a convenient flight, try Brussels airport which is 112 km away and has good train connections. 

Hotel Recommendation

Mal says, “A great place to base yourself in the city is Hotel Bourgoensch Hof, situated right in the heart of the historic centre of Bruges, a few minutes walk from the main square and overlooking a picturesque canal.”

Lake Como, Italy (Photo courtesy of Unsplash)

Lake Como, Italy

By Paula from Truly Expat

Europe in summer can be hot, especially when you would like to spend hours in the sun exploring. However, Lake Como is one of the best places to visit in Europe for cooler summer temperatures. Better yet, it offers everything for which you hope on a vacation to Italy.

There is so much to do in this beautiful part of Italy. First, consider hiking in the surrounding mountains. They are covered with snow during winter, but they are spectacularly beautiful and green during this time of year. A hike from Como to Cernobbio (10 km) or to Monte Bisbino (21.9 km looped trail) are great options.

If you plan on staying in Menaggio, you can hike through the Parco Val Sanagra region (Val Sanagra Park), where the walks are easy and take approximately an hour each to complete. Alternatively, if you would like to hike your way to Brunate, it is about a 4.3 km walk. This is a steep path, but the views are breathtaking. You will be able to walk off those long lunches that you have enjoyed.

If you love a view but don’t wish to hike, then take the funicular from Como. Enjoy a relaxed long lunch eating traditional favorites at Trattoria dei Bracconieri, rich in hundred year old Italian history.

Alternatively, spend a day on the water by hiring a boat and touring other towns like Menaggio or Bellagio. These stunning lakeside towns all have something different to offer.

Spend the day at Lido Menaggio, a sort of beach club, where you will find a beach with golden sand. Explore Menaggio by hiring a bike and checking out the beaches along the river. Make ensure you visit Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo as the botanical gardens are beautiful. 

Bellagio, the pearl of Lake Como, is based on the other side of the lake. Bellagio is known for its remarkable riverside villas, each one more extravagant than the other. Visit Villa Serbelloni or Villa Melzi for a real feel of what this beautiful part of the world is all about. 

Weather And Directions

Summer weather in Lake Como is perfect as it can range from a lovely cool 60 degrees at night to a perfect 79 degrees during the day. You can expect some humidity but hardly any in June and less than 20% of the time during July and August.

Getting to Lake Como is easy as you have three airports from which choose. Malpensa airport (the primary international airport), Milan Bergamo airport (caters to budget airlines) and Linate airport (if you are flying in from somewhere in Italy) are all under 2 hours by car.

Hotel Recommendation

Paula says, “The main town in the area is Como where there are plenty of places to stay, ranging from pensiones to boutique style hotels. However, if you are after the whole Italian experience, you can not go past Vista Palazza. This beautiful historic hotel is ideally located right on the waterfront.”

Triglav National Park, Slovenia (Photo courtesy of Heather from Conversant Traveller)

Triglav National Park, Slovenia

By Heather from Conversant Traveller

Slovenia is one of the best destinations to visit in Europe to avoid extreme summer temperatures. The weather is usually warm and sunny with clear skies and little rain. However, it doesn’t experience the soaring temperatures of many of its European counterparts.

If you really want to escape the heat, then head to Triglav National Park in the Julian Alps and keep cool while exploring the mountains, lakes, and valleys.

One of the best things to do is drive the Vrsic Pass. The precipitous switchback hairpins are easy to negotiate if you take it slow, and the views out across the flower meadows and lofty alpine peaks are stunning. Make sure you stop at the beautiful wooden Russian church which was built by prisoners of war in 1917 as a memorial to their comrades.

Other noteworthy activities in Triglav National Park are canoeing or canyoning on the turquoise Soca River, one of the most photogenic features in the area.

For something a little less energetic, head to Lake Bohinj or Lake Triglav. Try stand up paddle boarding, or just go for a swim.

Weather And Directions

Temperatures average around 68˚F during summer. If you plan to hike, the higher you head into the mountains, the cooler it will be.

The easiest way to reach the Triglav National Park is to fly into Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, and hire a car. You may want to spend a day or two exploring Ljubljana as there is lots of things to do. It’s only a 60-mile drive to reach Triglav, although you might want to stop off to explore Lake Bled on the way.

Both Ljubljana and Lake Bled offer lovely temperatures in summer. The average high is around 80oF without humidity.

Hotel Recommendation

Heather says, “Once in the Park, good places to base yourself are the Jasna Chalet Resort in Kranjska Gora or the Boutique Hotel Dobra Vila in Bovec.”

Krakow, Poland

By Tal from Bright Nomad

Krakow, Poland is one of the best cities to travel to in Europe to beat blistering summer heat. It is also a lovely city that’s well worth discovering.

The best way to get to know Krakow is by taking a guided tour. There are many different guided tours in Krakow that will teach you about its harsh and fascinating history, but also introduce you to the different parts of the city. The Old Town with its massive main square and the Jewish Quarter with its hipster vibes are each beautiful and fascinating parts of Krakow to explore.

In summer, the banks of the Vistula River are full of locals and tourists hanging out on the grass or strolling along the river. The feel is vibrant and the scenery is delightful.

As you walk along the river, you’ll see Krakow’s most famous and iconic landmark – Wawel Castle – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There’s plenty to see in the Castle, the adjacent Cathedral and the beautiful gardens. If you have time, you can easily spend half a day there. Book your tickets in advance to avoid standing in line. 

Weather And Directions

The summers in Krakow are comfortable, with an average high temperature between 72°F and 75 °F in June, July and August. You may experience the occasional rainy day, but the weather is generally very pleasant with practically no humidity.

Krakow’s international airport is called John Paul II International Airport Kraków – Balice. Getting from the airport to the city takes about 20-30 minutes. You can take public transport (there are frequent and affordable buses and trains) or drive.

Hotel Recommendation

Tal says, “For a convenient stay, I can recommend Hotel Legend in Krakow, located near Planty Park. It’s within a short walking distance from all the popular areas of the city: The Old Town, the Jewish Quarter and Wawel Castle.”

Wicklow National Park, Ireland (Photo courtesy of Unsplash)

Wicklow National Park, Ireland

By Mary from Be Right Back

The Wicklow Mountains National park is a gorgeous park located in County Wicklow, just one hour drive from Dublin, Ireland’s capital. It’s a heaven for anyone who loves the outdoors, hiking, discovering waterfalls and learning about history. It is also one of the best European destinations to go to avoid extreme summer heat.

There are lots of things to do in Wicklow Mountains National Park. Some of the highlights include the Upper lake and Lough Ouler. The Upper Lake is located at the heart of the National Park and is a favorite weekend destination for locals from Dublin. The lake is surrounded by green tall mountains and features a nice beach where you can swim in the sun. The view is absolutely beautiful and worth a visit.

If you’re feeling adventurous, take on the White Spinc hike which takes you to the Poulanass Waterfall, down the Glenealo Valley and ends at the Upper lake. 

Lough Ouler is another unmissable visit while in the Wicklow Mountains. It is a heart-shaped lake located on the side of the Tonelagee Mountain. It is accessible through a rough muddy path but is worth every minute of your effort. You are rewarded by an incredible (and windy) view of the heart!

Visiting the Powerscourt Distillery or the Glendalough Cathedral are also great options, especially on rainy days.  And of course, with only an hours drive to Dublin, you have an easy day trip for more incredible things to do.

Weather And Directions

Although Wicklow National Park can get quite a few sunny days during summer, temperatures usually average between 60°F to 70°F which makes it a great destination if you’re not a big fan of hot or humid summer days.

Ireland being Ireland, the weather can be quite unpredictable and change rapidly. Always bring a packable rain jacket even if the sky is blue and the sun is shining when you head outdoors. 

The best way to get to the National Park is to fly into Dublin’s airport (DUB) and rent a car. From there, Wicklow NP is about an hour drive (on the left side of the road). The drive is easy as it is mostly on the highway. 

Hotel Recommendation

Mary says, “For a full immersion in the park, stay at the Cleevaun Cabin. To experience pub life, hotels in Blessington or Bray are popular too!”

Copenhagen, Denmark

By Disha from Disha Discovers

One of the best places to visit in Europe for mild summer weather is Copenhagen, Denmark. With lovely temperatures and mostly sunny days, this Nordic jewel is the perfect escape from the heat.

Copenhagen is an ancient city brimming with youthful energy. The primitive canals and cobbled lanes crisscrossing through the city are full of life, and lined with designer shops, cafes, bars, and restaurants.

But, don’t be fooled by the cobblestones and charm – Copenhagen is also a modern, vibrant capital city that has a lot to offer! It truly is one of the best cities to visit in Europe.  

There are so many exciting things to do in Copenhagen. The Tivoli Gardens should be at the top of your list. The colorful gardens and romantic streets of Tivoli have been delighting visitors for over 150 years with its bright lights, unique gift shops, amusement rides, and enchanting shows.

Another amazing place to visit in Copenhagen is Nyhavn, which has been drawing visitors for years with its picturesque charm. The colorful homes lining the canal are beautiful. Whether you’re looking for a peaceful walk or an exciting night out in the town, Nyhavn has something for you.

Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland (Photo courtesy of Jennifer from Family Trip Guides)

Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland

By Jennifer from Family Trip Guides

Switzerland is one of the best European countries to escape the blistering heat of southern Europe. In particular, the village of Lauterbrunnen offers lovely summer temperatures and a stunning place to explore.

This quaint town inspired J.R.R. Tolkien’s Rivendell in Lord of the Rings because of its 72 waterfalls. It is surrounded by mountains on 3 sides and retains a quaint village feel but with all the necessities for an enjoyable vacation.

The main attraction is the Alps and the waterfalls at every turn! There are so many options to explore the outside beauty from taking a train to the Jungfraujoch (the Top of Europe) to taking a separate gondola to the Shilthorn where a 007 Bond movie was filmed.

You can also walk along an alpine river in the valley and explore waterfalls inside the mountain at Trummelbach Falls. For more adventurous travelers, paragliding is very popular here.

And if you are worried about visiting one of the most expensive countries in the world, check out these 10 Switzerland budget travel.

Weather And Directions

Average temperatures in June, July and August range from a daytime high of 66 to an evening low of 58. It rains on average 12 days each month, but it is typically a short rain in the mountains that often clears in an hour or two. There is no humidity.

The closest airport is Zurich International Airport which is less than a 2-hour drive or less than a 3 hour train ride.

Hotel Recommendation

Jennifer says, “We usually stay at a vacation rental in the valley but have heard good things from friends who stayed at Hotel Staubbach with a view of the largest waterfall in the valley.”

Cornwall, England (Photo courtesy of Lavina from Continent Hop)

Cornwall, England

By Lavina from Continent Hop

Cornwall is quite a popular spot to visit in England because it is one of the places that receives the most sunlight in England. With partially cloudy days, this translates into pleasant temperatures for most of summer. Accordingly, it is one of the best places in Europe to visit to escape extreme summer temperatures.

There are many places that you can visit in Cornwall. The Lizard Peninsula is a good spot as the diverse fauna and flora and the cliffs and beaches here are perfect for a walk or to enjoy a day at the beach. You’ll find basalt rock formations that look like pillars due to volcanic activity in the area centuries ago.

Penzance is where you’ll find St. Michaels Mount, a historic castle, garden and island community off the coast of Cornwall. When the tide is low you can walk right up to the castle. On the way keep an eye out for fossils as the area is full of them.

Cadgwith, a fishing village, is the perfect spot to enjoy pasties, cream teas, and ice cream while you admire the colourful boats here and the fishermen busy with their fresh catch.

Weather And Directions

Average temperatures vary between fifteen to twenty degrees for most days, with a few spells of rain too.

It is quite easy to get to Cornwall, but the most convenient is flying to London and driving to get here. If you’re looking for something quicker, a few flights will get you to Newquay from London. If you prefer driving, it takes about six hours to get to Cornwall from London.

Hotel Recommendation

Lavina says, “Various accommodation options suit all tastes; however, Hotel Penzance is a good choice.”

South Coast, Iceland

By Stephanie from The Unknown Enthusiast

One of the best places to visit in Europe for mild summer temperatures is the South Coast of Iceland. In addition, you get to experience some of the most insanely cool landscapes and adventures. 

Attractions in south Iceland can be roughly grouped into 3 different categories: 

First, you can explore and marvel at the huge variety of waterfalls in Iceland. Walk behind Seljalandsfoss waterfall, find the hidden Gljúfrabúi waterfall in a cave, and feel the power of the massive Skogafoss falls. 

The second category is the relaxing hot springs. Blue Lagoon, with it’s milky blue waters and smoky atmosphere, is very well known, but the Hruni hot pot is idyllic and adorable, and the Reykjadalur Thermal River is definitely a unique experience for your Iceland itinerary.

The third category is glaciers. Embrace the adventure by doing glacier hikes on the Skaftafell glacier, or visit Glacier Lagoon, with its crystal blue icebergs floating in the water. 

All of these experiences are absolutely jaw-droppingly gorgeous! But the real reason to visit Iceland in summer is because there is no night! While the sun does technically set for a few hours, between the end of May to beginning of August, it never gets dark, just slightly dusky. That means you can tour during the day or night and have nonstop light! Plus, being so far north means that around the summer solstice (June 21), you can see the midnight sun, a bucket list item for sure.

Weather And Directions

Average highs for the summer peak in the mid-50’s, but can also often be in the 40’s as well. Rain and wind is common, but weather changes frequently in Iceland, so build some flexibility into your itinerary. There is no humidity.

To access the South Coast of Iceland, fly into the international airport in Reykjavik.

Hotel Recommendation

Stephanie says, “Traveling by campervan in Iceland is very popular and a great way to have flexibility – and I recommend the campsite by the Gljúfrabúi waterfall as one of your stops!”

Riga, Latvia (Photo courtesy of Martha from May Cause Wanderlust)

Riga, Latvia

By Martha from May Cause Wanderlust

Riga is the capital of Latvia, one of the Baltic countries in northern Europe. It is a very attractive city, known as the Art Nouveau Capital of Europe. It is also a fantastic city in Europe to travel to when looking for vacation spots with cooler summer temperatures.

There is a lot to do in Riga, including wandering the cobbled streets of the medieval old town. Highlights include Rozena iela, a street so narrow you can touch the opposite walls at the same time.

Also, there are several beautiful parks in which to picnic, including Canal Park and Esplanade Park, which also contains the stunning gold-domed Cathedral of the Nativity of Christ.

Finally, take a boat tour along the Daugava River and Riga City Canal, gliding past some of the most popular sights in Riga including the Freedom Monument and Riga Castle.

However, a top tip is to make sure you spend a few hours exploring the Art Nouveau Museum and doing a free self-guided Art Nouveau architecture walking tour around the city. There are so many great examples of Art Nouveau to discover!

Weather And Directions

While it gets bright and sunny in summertime, the temperature is much cooler than southern Europe. The average high temperature in Riga ranges from 68F – 71F in June, July and August. Both rain and humidity are rare.

You can get to Riga by flying into Riga International Airport. It is also reachable by train from Moscow and other places in Russia, ferry from Sweden, or with a road trip through the Baltic states from Estonia or Lithuania.

Hotel Recommendation

Martha says, “Keeping with the Art Nouveau theme, consider staying at the Monika Centrum Hotel, which has a handsome nouveau-style pink façade.”

Conwy, Wales (Photo courtesy of Paulina from UK Everyday)

Conwy, Wales

By Paulina from UK Everyday

Conwy is a lovely Welsh town and one of the best places to visit in Europe with mild summer weather. It is situated by a beautiful river and offers amazing views of the Welsh countryside.

One of the best things to do is walk along the Conwy Town Walls, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They are among the finest and most complete walls in Europe, stretching for three quarters of a mile, with 21 towers and three original gateways. They are free and offer spectacular views of Conwy’s medieval streets.

Conwy Marina and Quay is also a lovely area to relax. You can find the smallest house in Great Britain. It is a Guinness Book of World Records holder, standing at 122 inches tall and 72 inches wide. There is only 16 square feet of usable space.

Finally, make sure you see Conwy Suspension Bridge, another Thomas Telford masterpiece, built in 1826.

Due to its convenient location, Conwy allows you to visit many amazing places. Whether you want to climb the highest mountain in Wales, see the impressive lighthouse in Holyhead or relax at one of the Welsh beaches. All of those locations are less than an hour drive from Conwy.

Weather And Directions

Average summer highs in Conwy are around 65°F with evening temperatures in the mid 50s.

Conwy is located one hour drive from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

Hotel Recommendation

Paulina says, “There is a huge variety of hotels in Conwy such as The Bridge Inn, Castle Hotel or Johnny Dough’s at The Bridge. All of them are within walking distance to one of the best medieval castles in Europe – Conwy Castle.”

Stockholm, Sweden

By Alina from World of Lina

For everyone wanting to escape extreme summer heat in Europe, Stockholm is a perfect destination. Even in July, the hottest month of the year, the average high is only around 70 °F.

Some of the best things to do in summer include a sailing trip from Stockholm to the mesmerizing archipelago with more than 30,000 small islands. While some of them are famous tourist spots with hotels, art galleries and amazing beaches, others are remote and unexplored.

Vaxholm, for example, is among the bigger ones where you can explore an old fortress and even stay overnight at either one of the very few hotels or an Airbnb.

Another activity not to be missed is a visit to Djurgarden, one of the 14 islands that make up Stockholm. It’s a lovely small island with beautiful nature, woodland trails and some of the capital’s most famous museums including the Vasa Museum (where you can admire a real-size, almost fully intact ship from the 17th century), the open-air museum Skansen (that shows how life was before the industrial revolution) and the Abba Museum. Whether you’re a nature lover or into art and history, this island is worth a visit!

No trip to Stockholm in summer is complete without spending at least one or two nights checking out some of the city’s coolest outdoor party spaces. Rooftop bars in an old slaughterhouse or in a revamped square are just a few of the many incredible hot spots.

Weather And Directions

Average high temperatures in June, July and August are between 66-71 degrees Fahrenheit. There is virtually no humidity.

There are four different airports around the capital of Sweden. Stockholm Arlanda Airport is the most frequented one. It’s about 40 km from the city center. You can easily take a train (20 minutes) or a
bus (50 minutes) to reach Stockholm.

The nearest airport is Stockholm Bromma Airport which also has international and domestic flights. It’s only 11 km from the center.

Low-cost airlines usually use the two smaller airports, Stockholm Skavsta and Stockholm Västeras, that are further away.

Hotel Recommendation

Lina says, “There are loads of good accommodation options, however, compared to more southern European countries, Sweden is rather expensive. An affordable but still great choice is Hotel Hellsten in the city district Vasastan, a safe residential area just a short walk from the center.”

Asturias, Spain

By Alya from Stingy Nomads

Asturias is a beautiful region in northern Spain that is famous for its mountains and beaches. The capital of the region is Oviedo, a beautiful city surrounded by mountains. Hiking, rock climbing, and surfing are some of the main outdoor activities practiced by many local and foreign tourists in the region. It is one of the best places in Europe to visit for mild summer weather.

Los Picos de Europa National Park is an amazing place for hiking. There are many day trails and a couple of multi-day routes such as the Camino Primitivo with breathtaking views of the mountain ranges and the coast.

Rock climbing is another popular activity in the National Park. Limestone peaks have endless climbing potential with different levels of difficulty.

There are several surfing spots and surf campsites along the coast of Asturias. Some of the best surf spots in the region are Gijon, Salines, Tapia de Casariego. The water here is always cold. For surfing, one needs a good wetsuit. 

Weather And Directions

Asturias doesn’t get scorching hot like many other parts of Spain in summer. In Oviedo, daily high temperatures in the summer range between 68°F and 74°F, but cools into the high 50s in the evenings. It rains between 5 days in the summer months.

There is only one international airport in the region, Asturias Airport situated 9 miles from Aviles, 25 miles from Gijon, and 30 miles from Oviedo, the largest cities. It’s easy to get around Asturias using buses and trains.

Hotel Recommendation

Alya says, “Oviedo is a good place to stay in Asturias because it is close to the sea and the mountains. Aparthotel Campus and Boutique Hotel Oviedo are some of the most popular places to stay in the city. Camping La Paz in Llanes is a perfect place for those who want to camp by the beach. El Cares in Los Picos de Europa National Park is a great campsite for hikers.”

Zell Am See, Austria

By Martina from Places of Juma

One of the best places to visit in Europe for mild summer weather is Zell am See in Austria. This picturesque destination looks like it has been plucked out of a fairytale book. Its’ high mountains, green meadows, blooming flowers and stunning crystal clear waters of Zeller Lake are breathtakingly beautiful.

Zell am See is a great destination for a summer vacation. Whether swimming, boating, surfing, SUP, hiking, biking, or sightseeing, there is always something to do in this amazing region!

Plus, in the summer, guests will enjoy the advantages of the Zell am See Card, which grants free admission to many of the major attractions, as well as gondola rides, gorges, lake resorts and museums. The card is often included in the price of accommodation so double check whether this benefit is being offered before booking your hotel.

In Zell am See, there are numerous places worth seeing, such as the Sigmund Thun Gorge with its thundering waterfalls, impressive rivers and interesting rock formations. It’s located near Kaprun and can be easily reached by shuttle bus.

Alternatively, take a gondola to the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier where you can still find snow in summer. On the top, you will have stunning views of the 10,000 foot high snow-white mountains of the Hohe Tauern National Park. You can even enjoy tobogganing and sliding in summer snow at the Ice Arena.

Another highlight is the Kaprun reservoirs which are located on a 7000 foot high mountain. The reservoirs can be reached by the famous Lärchwand lift. If you like, you can take a guided tour of the dam wall, visit the “Erlebniswelt Strom” exhibition or go on a hike with a view of the lake.

Weather And Directions

Thanks to the many mountains and the large lake, it is not too hot in the Zell am See region even in summer. On average, the temperatures are around sunny 73.4 °F, although it can rain on some days.

The nearest international airport is in Salzburg. The best way to reach Zell am See is by rental car, bus or train. By car, it is only about 1:15 hours drive.

Hotel Recommendation

Martina says, “As a hotel tip, we recommend the Grand Hotel Zell am See, a beautiful historic hotel directly on the lake!”

Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, Northern Ireland

Belfast, Northern Ireland

By Ella from Many More Maps

Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland, is often overlooked when it comes to European travel, but this awesome destination is perfect for escaping blistering summer heat. Moreover, it has a ton of awesome things to do, it’s cheap (far cheaper than London or Dublin) and not packed with tourists.

The best thing to do in Belfast is the Titanic Belfast Museum, and it should be on every Belfast itinerary. The Titanic was actually built in Belfast, and this modern and interactive museum tells the story of its construction, design and ultimate demise. It also includes plenty of unique attractions such as a 3D tour of the ship and even a ride.

Another fantastic thing to do is to take a Black Taxi Tour where you’ll learn all about “The Troubles”. From 1968-1998, Catholics fought their Protestant neighbors for the right to leave the United Kingdom to become part of the Republic of Ireland. There is fascinating street art and other memorials that capture the conflict and the loss of life. This is a fantastic Belfast tour if you are traveling with teens.

Many people visit Belfast on their way to visiting Giant’s Causeway and Dark Hedges (especially Game of Thrones fans!), and Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge. These three attractions are easily experienced on a day trip from Belfast.

Weather And Directions

Summer temperatures in Belfast in June, July and August are between 62°F and 65°F during the day with cooler temperatures at night. There is no humidity.

There are two airports in Belfast – Belfast International Airport (35 minutes away from the city) and George Best City Airport (10 minutes away from the city). Alternatively, you can fly into Dublin and drive just over 2 hours.

Hotel Recommendation

Ella says, “The best place to stay in Belfast is the Titanic Hotel. Located in the city’s Titanic Quarter, it’s just a stone’s throw away from the Titanic Museum and most of the rooms have a view of the shipyard where it was built! It’s also a fairly new hotel, so you can expect beautiful modern decoration.”

Bansko, Bulgaria

By Maria & Katerina from It’s All Trip To Me

The lovely mountain town of Bansko in Bulgaria is a very popular winter destination and one of the best skiing resorts in Europe. However, Bansko is so much more. It is a quaint town tucked away in the embrace of the Pirin Mountains. In addition, it’s an ideal place in Europe to spend time when trying to escape from soaring summer temperatures in June, July and August. 

Hiking is one of the best things to do in the summer in Bansko. There are many hiking paths and summer is the ideal time to enjoy the utter beauty of the scenery.

Moreover, Bansko is home to a picturesque Old Town with cobbled alleys, historic buildings and quite a few mehanas, traditionally decorated restaurants that serve superb Bulgarian food.

In the evening, when the weather is pleasantly cool, sample the area’s superb wines, one of the things you’ll cherish most about your trip to Bansko. 

Weather And Directions

The average high in Bansko in June, July and August is between 73F – 78F with temperatures in the 50s at night. The weather is fantastic, with clear skies, almost no rain and no humidity.  

Sofia International Airport is the closest airport. It takes about two and a half hours by car to get to Bansko. Alternatively, you can reach it via Thessaloniki International Airport in Greece after a 3-hour drive. 

Hotel Recommendation

Maria & Kateriana say, “From cosy guest houses like Villa Kalina to 5-star luxury resorts with spa facilities and swimming pools like Kempinski Hotel Grand Arena, Bansko offers amazing accommodation options for all budgets and travel styles. In the summer, prices in Bansko drop dramatically, making it a value-for-money destination.”

Perros Guirec, France

By Eloise from My Favourite Escapes

During a heatwave, when you look at the weather in France, there’s always one region that offers lovely weather. In the most western part of France, Brittany, it rarely gets very hot or very cold. Accordingly, it is one of the best places to visit in Europe for mild summer weather.

The cool oceanic climate is one of the reasons why visitors choose to come to the popular seaside town of Perros Guirec. It’s a lively beach town where you will find many restaurants and bars, and a casino.

The main attraction in Perros Guirec is the beach. Trestraou Beach is the most reputed one with 1.4 km of beautiful white sand and stunning views of nearby islands. It’s perfect for a swim, and there’s also a surf club where you can rent a board or take a lesson. In addition, Perros Guirec is a famous wellness destination for spa treatments.

Perros Guirec is well located to explore Brittany. Bird lovers will love joining a boat tour from Perros Guirec to explore the Sept-Iles archipelago. It is also close to Lannion and Treguier, some of the most beautiful towns in Brittany, and ideally located to explore the stunning Pink Granit Coast.

Weather And Directions

The average maximum summer temperature in June, July and August is between 65°F -70°F. There is less than 1% chance of a humid day. If you ever feel too hot, there is always the refreshing water of the English Channel to keep you cool. There will be periodic rainfall.

It takes five hours to drive from Paris to Perros Guirec. The closest airports are Brest (1.5 hours away) and Rennes (2 hours away).

Hotel Recommendation

Eloise says, “While in Perros Guirec, you can treat yourself to a room with sea views at the Hotel des Rochers. You may also find cheaper accommodation out of town, like the beautiful Pavillon de la plage in Trébeurden.”

St. Petersburg, Russia

By Elizabeth from The Fearless Foreigner

St. Petersburg, Russia is one of the best destinations to visit in Europe to avoid stifling summer heat. In addition, there are a lot of things to do in St. Petersburg.

You don’t want to miss the Hermitage Museum, the largest art museum in the world. Founded in 1764, this gigantic palace is a work of art itself, not to mention the three million pieces of art in its collection. One estimate surmises that you would need about eleven years to view each exhibit on display for just one minute.

Peterhof Palace is an easy day trip from the city. It is a series of beautiful palaces and exquisite gardens commissioned by Peter the Great in response to the Palace of Versailles in France.  

Canal and river cruises are also very popular. For a more unique way to navigate the waterways, take a kayak tour with PiterKayak. You’ll see the city from a whole new perspective. 

Weather And Directions

Summer is the perfect time to visit. Temperatures are typically in the high 60s in June, July and August with cool nights. Summer nights are known as “White Nights” where there is daylight almost 24 hours a day. 

St Petersburg is one of the easiest cities in Russia to reach. You can fly into Pulkova Airport in St Petersburg or take a high speed train from Moscow or many other European cities.

What makes St Petersburg easier to reach than other Russian cities is that you can also arrive by cruise ship. If you arrive on a cruise, you don’t need a Russian visa which will save you lots of aggravation.

Hotel Recommendation

Elizabeth says, “Aston Hotel is the perfect place to stay. Within walking distance to many of the must-visit sights, Aston Hotel also offers friendly service and clean rooms. The free daily tea time and morning breakfast buffets are also nice perks.”

Bergen, Norway (Photo courtesy of Unsplash)

Bergen, Norway

By Joanna from World In My Pocket

Bergen is one of the best places to travel in Europe for cooler summer temperatures. Whilst places like Malaga are famous for their 300 days of sunshine a year, Bergen is the opposite.

One of the main attractions in Bergen is the old docks of Bryggen which were established in 1070 and declared a Unesco World Heritage site in 1979. Here you will find crooked houses, narrow alleyways and a lot of colour. In addition, there is a museum dedicated to the history of the city and a Christmas shop open all year round.

As Bergen is surrounded by seven mountains, one of the best things to do is go on a hike. The Vidden trail connects the top of Ulriken Mountain with the top of Floyen mountain. The trail passes through beautiful scenery and offers spectacular panoramas over the city from different angles. You can reach the tops of both mountains by cable cars, one of which connects to the city center.

Another great thing to do in Bergen is eat your way through the fish market. You can either buy fresh fish to cook or try the sandwiches with marinated salmon or giant prawns.

Weather And Directions

In June, July and August, the average high temperature is 63 degrees Fahrenheit with rain expected around 50% of the time. There is no humidity.

Bergen is easily accessible from Europe as it has its own airport. If you prefer to come from Oslo, take the day train for a spectacular journey – one of the most beautiful in Europe.

Hotel Recommendation

Joanna says, “There are plenty of places to stay in Bergen, but prepare to pay more than other European cities. I chose an AirBnb during my trip to Bergen as it was much more cost effective than a hotel.”

Constanta, Romania (Photo courtesy of Elizabeth from Three Week Traveller)

Constanta, Romania

By Elizabeth from Three Week Traveller

Constanta is located east of Bucharest on the famous Black Sea. It is one of the best places to visit for mild summer weather and a great place to add to a 3 week Eastern Europe Itinerary

There are many things you can do here. Firstly, enjoy the nice beaches of the Black Sea. Plaja 3 Papuci is the most popular beach with fine sand and sunshade to rent. Even during the peak of summer, the crowds don’t get too big which means it’s a great location for a quiet holiday.

If you are travelling with children or are young at heart, go to Aqua Magic Mamaia Water Park where you will find water slides, a lazy river, outdoor jacuzzis, a play area for children, and restaurants.

If you feel like exploring the town, there’s a double-decker tourist bus that drives up and down the coast. Make sure to visit Faleza Cazino Constanta and take a walk around to discover ancient buildings and historic spots like the Romanian Sailors Monument and Mihai Eminescu’s Statue – a famous Romanian poet and novelist from 1800.

For dinner or drinks at night, head to Muscle Beach where you will find plenty of restaurants and bars right by the shore.

If you are feeling adventurous, head south one hour to Vama Veche, a small hippy beach town sitting right next to the border of Bulgaria. If you prefer camping, you can do that here. It also has a public nude beach. For passport stamp collectors, cross the Bulgarian border, enjoy a cold beer, then head back.

Weather And Directions

The average summer temperature during June, July, and August ranges from 77°F to 80°F. It is sunny with 30% chance of humidity.

Fly into Henri Coandă International Airport in Bucharest. You can either rent a car or take a 2.5-hour train to Constanta.

Hotel Recommendation

Elizabeth says, “For accommodation, I highly recommend Hotel Continental Forum (formerly Hotel ibis). It has modern rooms, a good-size pool, and the beach is just 400m away. I also suggest you check out La Ana și Ion – very delicious Romanian food for such affordable prices.”

Isle of Skye, Scotland (Photo courtesy of Unsplash)

Isle of Skye, Scotland

By Maggie from Pink Caddy Travelogue

One of the best places to visit in Europe for mild summer weather is Scotland’s windswept but otherworldly Isle of Skye.

The Isle of Skye is located on Scotland’s northwest coast. It’s famous for its ethereal fairy pools, herds of shaggy highland cattle, and rugged mountains. Because its claim to fame is its scenery, one of the best things to do here is to go hiking. You can take the popular Old Man of StorrTrail up to an amazing vista of the island, or a longer trek through the Quiraing range.

If you’re into visiting historic buildings, check out Dunvegan Castle, the only castle on the Isle of Skye. The gardens are stunning, and you might even spot some sea lions.

You can also drive out to Neist Point, the most photographed lighthouse in Scotland. It sits on a peninsula that juts out into the sea, making it an epic sunset location.

If you’re an outdoor lover who prefers not to swelter in extreme summer heat, then the Isle of Skye is one of the best European summer destinations for you!

Weather And Directions

Skye is pretty far north and off the coast, so it rarely gets hot in the summer. The average high is 60 degrees Fahrenheit. And because it’s Scotland, you can bet it’ll rain at least a little on most days.

The nearest international airport is either Glasgow or Edinburgh. From either city, it’s about a 5-hour drive through the beautiful Scottish highlands.

Hotel Recommendation

Maggie says, “As the largest city on Skye, Portree has the most accommodation options. It’s also the most centrally located to the best activities in the area. The Cuillin Hills is a beautiful, classic hotel in the heart of Portree.”

Tallinn, Estonia (Photo courtesy of Unsplash)

Tallinn, Estonia

By Becki from Meet Me In Departures

If you’re looking to avoid sizzling summer heat, then one of the best destinations to spend time is in Tallinn. Estonia’s capital is the northernmost of the three Baltic States, and even in the height of summer, it offers mild summer weather.  

The city of Tallinn has a UNESCO listed historical centre, so this is where the majority of the attractions are. Allow a good portion of your time to wander and explore the pretty cobbled streets. One of the most iconic streets is in the artisan quarter and cute arched lane of St Catherine’s Passage.  

In the heart of the city is the town square which is always a bustling hub of pop-up market stalls as well as the location of the Town Hall. You can climb up the bell tower of the Town Hall for panoramic views of Tallinn.

One of the best things to do in Tallinn is walk the city walls. At one point, the walls encircled the city, with towers, turrets and gateways found along them. Although parts of the wall no longer exist, you can still climb sections of it.

You can also go inside Kiek in de Kok, one of the towers, and visit a museum documenting the history of Tallinn. Alternatively, from here you can enter the Bastion Passages which were used in the city’s defence. They have a really eerie feel with ambient sound effects and narration telling of the city’s past. 

Weather And Directions

Average highs in June, July and August range from 65 degree Fahrenheit to 70 degree Fahrenheit with cool evenings. There is practically no humidity.

Tallinn is a short bus or tram ride from the main airport.

Hotel Recommendation

Becki says, “If you stay in Tallinn, opt to either stay within the city’s walls so the main attractions are within walking distance. If you prefer more modern accommodations, then the Rotermann Quarter is just outside the old city. This area was once factories, but has recently undergone huge redevelopment and is now filled with shops, gyms, restaurants and cafes.

Dolomites, Italy (Photo courtesy of Krisztina from She Wanders Abroad)

Dolomites, Italy

By Krisztina from She Wanders Abroad

One of the best places to visit in Europe for mild summer weather is on a mountain vacation. Although there are many choices on the continent, the Dolomites are undoubtedly one of the most scenic ones.

The Dolomites are located in Northern Italy and although it’s a bit tricky to get there, it’s absolutely worth the hassle.

In terms of where to stay in the Dolomites, it’s best to base yourself in one or two towns and then explore. Ortisei and Cortina d’Ampezzo work best but you can take a look at a couple of smaller towns as well such as La Villa or Dobbiaco.

Summer is actually one of the best times to visit the Dolomites because you’ll find all the hiking trails and mountain roads open.

If you’re an outdoorsy type, you can take advantage of the many amazing hikes the Dolomites offer. One of the most popular ones is Tre Cime di Lavaredo which is suitable for absolute beginners. However, if you’re looking for a challenge, you can tackle the hike to Lago di Sorapis or the Vajolet Towers.

Don’t worry, if you’re not a hiker, you’ll still find plenty of things to do in the area. You can visit the most beautiful alpine lakes like Lago di Braies or Lago di Carezza. Alternatively, you can stroll around charming little towns while trying some classic Italian dishes. Even if you only drive around the Dolomites, you’ll be blown away by the scenery.

Weather And Directions

Summer weather is usually nice and warm and the temperature rarely goes over 80°F although you can expect some rainy days. You may get 2-3 days of humidity in July and August.

There are no dedicated airports in the area, so you have to either fly to Venice or Milan and then drive around 3-4 hours.

Lake Constance, Germany (Photo courtesy of Marianne from Journeying Giordano’s)

Lake Constance, Germany

By Marianne from Past Pretzels And Passports

Lake Constance (Bodensee) is one of the largest lakes in Europe. Surrounded by resort towns and considered a favorite holiday destination, the lake is actually straddled by three countries—Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. It is one of the best European vacation destinations to beat the extreme summer heat.

Aside from lounging at one of the many beaches, swimming or windsurfing, one of the most popular pastimes for people visiting Lake Constance is to go on a boat ride. There is no shortage of companies offering cruises, catamaran, or ferry rides. Spend the day out on the water, or simply take a boat ride to explore the islands or various towns surrounding the lake.

One such town that you should discover is Kontsanz. It is filled with history and amazing architecture. Niederburg is the oldest district in Konstanz, with several landmarks dating back to the 14th century. The neighbourhood boasts cobblestone roads, gorgeous medieval half-timbered houses, and numerous shops, restaurants and wine caves, all tucked away behind the town’s old walls.

In fact, head to the Schnetztor, which is one of three remaining fortification towers built to protect the town in the Middle Ages. Be sure to grab some ice cream as you stroll through this incredibly walkable town. And when it’s time for lunch, head to the Konzilgebäude.

The Konzilgebäude was originally built in 1388 as a warehouse before it became a religious site. Now, it is a wonderful restaurant that serves absolutely delicious traditional German dishes (think spaetzle and schnitzel), and offers incredible views across Lake Constance.

For the best views of Konstanz, go to the gothic Konstanz Cathedral. Built in the 15th century, you can climb up the 193 steps to the top of the tower for some pretty incredible views. The church itself is filled with history. From the beautiful frescoes, gold and marble chancel and ornate wood carvings, to the romanesque painted wood ceiling, spiral staircase and thousand-year-old crypt, this cathedral is definitely worth the visit.

Another popular activity is to spend time on Lake Constance Trail. With over 270 kilometers of trail, you can run, hike or bike around the entire lake. The trail offers incredible views of rolling hills, orchards, vineyards, and farms. Considered a moderate level hike, there is only a 400 m change in elevation across the entire trail.

Weather And Directions

The closest airport to Lake Constance is Friedrichshafen which is only 15.7 miles away. You can rent a car, take the train or bus to easily reach the lake.

As one of the sunniest places in Germany, the best time to visit is in June, July and August, when the average highs are regularly around 77. 8°F (25.4°C) with temperatures rarely dropping below 58.3°F (14.6°C) at night. There is little to no humidity.

Hotel Recommendation

Marianne says, “If you are planning to stay in Konstanz, there are a variety of accommodations available ranging from spa resorts, quaint inns, or beachside AirBnBs. Stay in the historic Steigenberger Inselhotel, which was once a monastery, or the more modern Hampton by Hilton Konstanz with great amenities.”

Last Word

Your summer vacation does not have to be in front of the air conditioner trying to stay cool from high temperatures or unbearable humidity. There are lots of destinations in June, July and August in Europe where you can enjoy beautiful pleasant temperatures while spending time outside. Whether you prefer cities, towns, or national parks, mild summer weather is available in many spectacular places.

Best Time to Visit Germany by Month

A guide to Germany’s weather

Given the variety of things to do in Germany – from festivals and events to forest treks and hiking, the ideal time for a German vacation depends just as much on the weather as it does your preference for particular activities and adventures. Remember, timing is everything.

The German climate follows a predictable central European pattern – warm between April to August and cold from September to March. If you want to increase your chances of a dry holiday, then visit between July and September. Temperatures during this period fluctuate within the 68°F – 86°F range.

  • Dec

OVERVIEW

With chilly, wet and gloomy weather conditions, January is Germany’s coldest month. The northern parts of the country are wet while the southern region experiences frequent snow. Average high temperatures range between 37°F- 41°F.

OVERVIEW

It’s still winter across the country, though temperatures might be a couple of degrees higher than January. Average daytime temperatures are around 41°F. It’s one of the leanest tourist periods in Germany so if you are looking for hotel and airfare deals, February is your month.

OVERVIEW

The country shakes off its winter blues, though the early part of the month can still experience cold temperatures. Mornings and evenings are chilly and it is best to wear layers if you are traveling through the country during this month. Daytime highs reach 48°F towards the end of the month.

OVERVIEW

Spring officially arrives in Germany with 14-15 hour days and the mercury reaching the high 50s, but April is still an unpredictable month, with some days experiencing a mix of rain, sunshine, and hail. Expect crowds, with locals traveling for the Easter holidays.

OVERVIEW

With daytime highs around 67°F and the crowds yet to come, May is one of the best months to travel to Germany. Be advised that while it is generally sunny and pleasant, there is a greater chance of rain this month.

OVERVIEW

Days are long and warm with temperatures ranging between 71°F – 77°F. Southern parts of the country tend to be hotter than northern regions that benefit from the cooling influence of winds from the Baltic and Northern Sea. There is still a likelihood of rain and it’s advisable to carry a rain jacket or umbrella.

OVERVIEW

July is one of the best times to visit Germany and, naturally, the peak tourist season and therefore a relatively expensive time of the year to visit. Temperatures are in the range of 77°F – 84°F, though there is a high likelihood of rain.

OVERVIEW

August is warm and wet and a popular month to visit Germany. Tourists pour into the country as temperatures hover around a pleasant 75°F. There are plenty of festivals and outdoor activities to participate in.

OVERVIEW

The weather begins to change and by the end of the month and you will find mornings and evenings to be quite chilly. Temperature averages drop to around 68°F. Millions of tourists visit the country for Oktoberfest, which begins this month, so if you are planning to join the fun, remember that you will have to plan at least six months in advance.

OVERVIEW

Germany is firmly in the mid of autumn, with shorter days and temperatures dropping further into the mid-50s. However, the weather is dry and there are plenty of sunny days, making the month a good time to visit the country.

OVERVIEW

It’s beginning to look a lot like winter in November with low temperatures just above freezing and high temperatures between 41°F – 45°F. If you want to ski down some of the country’s slopes without the crowds, this is the month to visit Germany.

OVERVIEW

Temperatures drop to below freezing in the night and barely touch the 40s during the daytime, but it is still a good time to travel to Germany. The country comes alive with Christmas markets and holiday festivities lighting uptown squares and buildings.

24 Cheap Destinations For 2022 With Great Weather in April

April is an in-between month in the Americas except of course for the Tropics, where it’s hot all year round. This is an excellent time to head to the Caribbean, as the crowds are thinning and prices are coming down after winter.

The Caribbean

There are many great “cultural” destinations listed a bit down the page, but if you are mainly interested in relaxing in the sun and maybe doing some water activities and that sort of thing, you’ll want to head to the Caribbean.

Hotel rates in April are lower than in March because it’s already starting to warm up in the southern United States and in southern Europe. With that in mind, the best holiday destinations in April are more affordable than you might expect.

  • 13 Cheapest Caribbean all-inclusive destinations
  • 32 Caribbean destinations from cheapest to most expensive
  • Best budget Caribbean destinations for all kinds of trips: All-inclusive, cultural, nightlife, super-cheap, weekend trips, and more

Cancun, Mexico

  • April avg high: 89°F/32°C
  • April avg low: 74°F/23°C
  • April avg precip: 1. 5″/3.8cm

April in the Cancun area, which also includes Playa del Carmen and the island of Cozumel, is starting to warm up, but at least it’s dry and the ocean breezes are always pleasant. Most of the snowbirds that come to Cancun are already back home by April, so room rates can be very appealing in spite of the perfect weather.

There are some all-inclusives in the Cancun area, and those have great rates this month as well, but most hotels here operate on a pay as you go basis so you can try different restaurants and bars all the time. This is also the best place in the Caribbean for big nightlife, with several huge clubs featuring top DJs and all-you-can-drink deals once you pay the cover charge.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$66 per night for two people
  • 4-star hotels from: US$107 per night for two people

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

  • April avg high: 86°F/30°C
  • April avg low: 74°F/23°C
  • April avg precip: 1. 1″/2.8cm

If you are thinking about doing an all-inclusive holiday in April, then Punta Cana is the place to be. The room rates from Christmas through March are quite good considering the high quality of the resorts here, but starting in April the rates go down and the value is amazing.

The white, sandy beaches in this area are lined with huge resorts, nearly all run by European resort chains, and they compete fiercely on price during the non-peak months. In other words, you can get an all-inclusive room at a well-reviewed 4-star beach resort in Punta Cana for under US$200 per night for two people. The room itself will feel worth the nightly rate, so the unlimited food and alcoholic drinks seem like a bonus. By the way, there was a brief scare after some tourists died in and near Punta Cana in 2019, but after investigation it was revealed that there was nothing going on and the number of tourist deaths was actually below normal for the year. In other words, don’t fear Punta Cana.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$45 per night for two people
  • 4-star hotels from: US$55 per night for two people

Montego Bay, Jamaica

  • April avg high: 87°F/31°C
  • April avg low: 73°F/23°C
  • April avg precip: 1.3″/3.3cm

Jamaica is closer to the US and Canada than Punta Cana is, so flights into the large and busy Montego Airport are shorter and often cheaper as well. Another small bonus is that everyone you encounter in Jamaica will speak English, which definitely isn’t true in the Dominican Republic or much of the rest of the Caribbean. Montego Bay is home to quite a few top resorts, including many all-inclusives and several Sandals resorts including two that have overwater bungalows. The town itself is kind of a dud, so this destination is best for those who want to book and stay in a large self-contained resort.

If Montego Bay itself doesn’t sound perfect then you might instead consider Negril or Ocho Rios, both of which are about 90 minutes from the same airport and each has a different feel. Ocho Rios is similar to Montego Bay (also with a dud of a main town), and there are many great resorts all along the northern coast. Negril, on the other hand, is the place to go if you want to stay in a smaller beach hotel where you can try different restaurants and bars rather than being stuck in one big place.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

  • April avg high: 86°F/30°C
  • April avg low: 63°F/17°C
  • April avg precip: 0.1″/0.3cm

The popular Caribbean destinations above are ideal for those starting in Europe or the eastern half of the US or Canada, but those in the western half of the US or Canada will find it cheaper and faster to reach Puerto Vallarta, which is also a fantastic destination on its own. Unlike some of the others, Puerto Vallarta is a historic town with authentic architecture at its core, and then resorts built around it. This gives it a far more authentic and interesting feel compared to Cancun, for example.

You can see above that the April weather in Puerto Vallarta is pretty much perfect, with warm days and mild evenings combined with no rain most years. Hotels here can be expensive if you are looking for a 4-star place on the beach, but there are still good deals to be had. If you are willing to stay in a 3-star place a couple blocks from the beach, Puerto Vallarta is still very cheap. There are large resorts both well north and well south of Puerto Vallarta, so if you want to stay in a self-contained mini-paradise you have scores of great options that are all over the area.

Mexico City, Mexico

  • April avg high: 80°F/27°C
  • April avg low: 51°F/11°C
  • April avg precip: 1. 0″/2.5cm

April is an ideal month to visit Mexico City because it’s one of the two warm and dry months before the summer rainy season begins, so things really don’t get any better all year. You can see just above that the days will be reliably warm while the nights are mild, so it’s an excellent spot for those who don’t want to swelter in the Tropics.

Mexico City is massively underrated as a tourist destination, and it’s pleasantly cheap as well. The huge tourist-oriented area in the middle of the city is as impressive as most of the major cities in Europe, and there are excellent cultural sights here as well such as museums and ruins. The nightlife here is also top notch, although it’s easier to join in if you know at least a bit of Spanish. This might be a surprising choice for where to go in April, but almost everyone who comes here loves it and then won’t shut up about it.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$25 per night for two people

Ambergris Caye, Belize

  • April avg high: 81°F/27°C
  • April avg low: 76°F/24°C
  • April avg precip: 1. 7″/4.3cm

With the rainy season starting in Belize around the middle of May, April is the last month you can reliably go to enjoy the perfect warm and humid weather without a chance of major storms. We list San Pedro on Ambergris Caye on our site, but really Caye Caulker is the island just nearby that is similar yet cheaper so those on a budget should probably head there instead.

Belize is definitely one of the cheapest Caribbean destinations, and the offshore islands actually do have quite a Caribbean feel in spite of being surrounded by Latin America. There are wonderful resorts here for those willing to spend more, but even the cheaper hotels are decent, and very good bargains even in high season.

Panama City, Panama

  • April avg high: 89°F/32°C
  • April avg low: 78°F/26°C
  • April avg precip: 2. 5″/6.3cm

Those looking for a Central American adventure who might not want to pay the higher Costa Rica prices should think about Panama. The capital city is a new hot spot and a legitimate cultural destination that is one of the region’s bright spots, while the beach resorts on both coasts are also well worth considering.

Prices in Panama are generally very reasonable for the area and things are more modern than in a few of the countries just below Mexico, so it’s a nice compromise. It’ll be hot in April, even at night, but those near the beaches should be fine, and hotel prices are off their high-season peaks as well.

Cartagena, Colombia

  • April avg high: 86°F/30°C
  • April avg low: 78°F/26°C
  • April avg precip: 1.0″/2. 5cm

Being fairly close to the equator, Cartagena has constant warm temperatures all year round, but the rainy season does begin in May so April is an ideal time to go while it’s still dry. More good news is that the crowds have tailed off from the winter as well so hotel prices are quite low, especially at the high-end beach hotels.

Cartagena is the best value destination in the Caribbean at the moment, with a gorgeous historic walled city and nearby beach resorts that are all surprisingly cheap. The food and drinks here are also bargains, even at many of the posh-looking places, so budget travelers can live like kings and queens here.

Guanacaste, Costa Rica

  • April avg high: 97°F/36°C
  • April avg low: 73°F/23°C
  • April avg precip: 0. 9″/2.3cm

Many people come to Costa Rica for zip-lining and other adventure activities, and those visitors are probably better off starting in the capital of San Jose and then going from there. But those who are coming to Costa Rica to enjoy the lovely beaches and stay in nicer resorts will find it much easier to stay in the Guanacaste area on the northern Pacific coast. You can even fly for about the same price directly into the Liberia airport, which is a short drive from the various beach resort areas.

The Guanacaste region has many small beach communities and Tamarindo is one of the most famous of them. You’ll be able to find newer 4-star chain hotels on the beach or up in the hills with even better views, but you can also find cheaper local hotels that are in or near the towns and provide a more authentic experience.

Lima, Peru

  • April avg high: 76°F/24°C
  • April avg low: 66°F/19°C
  • April avg precip: 0. 0″/0.0cm

As long as you don’t require extreme heat, you won’t find a better month to visit Lima. The daytime temperatures are warm and evening temperatures are mild as well, with virtually no chance of rain. Better still, this is the first month of the off-season for hotels, so prices are low and crowds are down.

Many people visit Lima on their way to Cusco, and this is an ideal month for that town as well, as the rainy season is over and days are still warm. If you want to do the Inca Trail you’ll find it expensive on the train or with a guided tour, but both are very worthwhile anyway.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

  • April avg high: 86°F/30°C
  • April avg low: 70°F/21°C
  • April avg precip: 3.9″/9.8cm

Since Carnival is never as late as April you can always count on this being a perfect and cheap month to visit Rio de Janeiro. The high season for hotels is over and yet the weather this month is even nicer than during the summer as there is less rain and temperatures are less scorching.

Being (just barely) in the tropics, it’s beach weather pretty much all year round in Rio, so better to go when it’s not as hot and the city isn’t so full of other tourists. Hotel deals, even along the main Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, are easy to find in April.

Buenos Aires, Argentina

  • April avg high: 73°F/23°C
  • April avg low: 57°F/14°C
  • April avg precip: 3.8″/9.5cm

As the weather cools off a bit in Buenos Aires and the crowds from summer are gone, April might be on the borderline when it comes to weather, but this is really a cultural and indoor city anyway, and the whole month is quite pleasant without much rain.

This is also the first month of the off-season for hotels so you’ll be able to get a great deal on just about any hotel you like, especially the 3- and 4-star places that will suddenly find themselves otherwise empty. You’ll be dining and dancing mostly with locals rather than other tourists, which can be quite another nice benefit as well. If you are flying in from a long way you should also consider side trips to the wine region of Mendoza and/or the adventure mountain capital of Bariloche.

Latest projections of future temperatures over Europe

Source photo: https://showyourstripes.info/c/europe/all

Mainline

The latest projections of future temperatures over Europe show that warming will be largest both in the northernmost latitudes (Norwegian Sea, Scandinavia, and Russia) and in the southern part of Mediterranean Europe (mainly in Spain and Turkey). The lowest warming is projected to occur in the British Isles and surrounding areas.

In northern Europe, in particular the coldest winters will be less cold in the future; warming will be relatively high for minimum winter temperatures. In southern Europe, on the other hand, the hottest summers will be much hotter; warming will be relatively high for maximum summer temperatures.

These projections are based on both a moderate and a high-end scenario of climate change. The moderate scenario leads to a global mean temperature increase of about 2.5°C when compared to the pre-industrial era. According to experts, this is a realistic scenario. The high-end scenario leads to a global mean temperature increase of about 5°C when compared to the pre-industrial era. This scenario assumes that current emissions of greenhouse gasses will continue unabated this century; experts stress that this is not realistic, it is a worst case. In these projections, three 20-year time periods were considered: the reference period 1995 – 2014, 2046 – 2065 (medium-range future), and 2081 – 2100 (long-range future).

Moderate scenario of climate change

Average warming

By the middle of this century, warming in northern and southern Europe can reach 1–2.5°C under the moderate scenario of climate change. By the end of the century, warming in these parts of Europe can reach 3–4°C. Warming does not seem to surpass 1°C in the British Isles and surrounding areas even for the long-term future.

Hot days

The number of hot days, with a mean temperature > 30°C, is projected to increase in the southernmost regions of Spain and Turkey. Compared with the reference period 1995–2014, this increase is around 15–30 days per year in the mid-term future and 35–45 days per year for the long-term future. The rest of Europe does not show an increase in the number of hot days.

Very hot days

The number of very hot days, with a maximum temperature > 40°C, will probably not change much in Europe until the end of the century, except for some localized areas in Spain and southern Turkey.

Tropical nights

Changes in the number of tropical nights are relevant for human health, since warm nights do not allow a complete human body recovery from the diurnal heat stress. The number of tropical nights will increase in the Mediterranean area by 20–40 nights per year mid-century, reaching 40–60 nights per year by the end of the century in the south-central part of Portugal and Spain, and in Italy, Greece, and some areas of southern Turkey.

Frost days

The number of frost days, with a minimum temperature < 0°C, is projected to decrease in practically all of Europe already by mid-century. The decrease is strongest in northern Europe. By the end of this century, this decrease reaches 40–60 days per year in Scandinavia and even more than 100 days per year in the Norwegian Sea and Iceland, under a moderate scenario of climate change.

High-end scenario of climate change

Average warming

Under the high-end scenario of climate change, warming in northern and southern Europe by the middle of this century is like the one projected under the moderate scenario towards the end of the century: 3–4°C. Towards the end of the century, warming in northern and southern Europe can reach 5–6°C.

Hot days

The number of hot days is projected to increase in especially southern Europe. This increase is around 35–45 days per year in the mid-term future. By the end of the century, this increase can reach up to 70–80 days per year for Portugal, Spain, Turkey, and some localized areas in Greece, and up to 40–60 days per year in other parts of southern Europe.

Very hot days

The number of very hot days will probably strongly increase by the end of the century in southern Europe: up to 40–50 days per year in the southern parts of Portugal, Spain, and Turkey, and up to 5–10 days per year in the central-southern parts of Europe.

Tropical nights

For the number of tropical nights, the mid-century projection under the high-end scenario is like the end-of-century projection under the moderate scenario. A high increase in the number of tropical nights is projected for the end of the century in all of Europe (except for Scandinavia and the British Isles). This increase is in the order of 50–80 nights per year and can reach 80–100 nights per year in Portugal and Spain.

Frost days

Under the high-end scenario of climate change, the number of frost days will reduce by more than 100 days per year in Scandinavia and north-eastern Russia by the end of the century.

Best Time To Visit Europe | Climate Guide












Europe makes a good year-round destination. Overall, late March to early June, and September to November are the best times to visit, as you’ll avoid the busier summer period and see your money go further.

Northern Europe is generally warm and dry between May and September, while farther south, temperatures can reach 36°C (96°F) between July and August. Vibrant Easter celebrations across southern Europe make for a particularly interesting time to visit, while a September or October trip will coincide with the grape harvest. Winter in northern Europe is cool and wet, while the south is mild, making it a good time to explore the cities.

Visiting Europe in January

The mild Mediterranean winter is a good time to visit the cities of southern Europe. You’re rewarded with quieter streets and museums, better value for money and availability, and less waiting in line to enter popular attractions.

Although temperatures are cooler, and some regional attractions may have limited opening hours, the sense of seeing a city at a more relaxed time more than compensates. In Iceland, daytime sightseeing needs to be planned carefully to coincide with the limited hours of sunlight.

Events & Festivals

  • In Iceland, chances of seeing the northern lights are best between November and February, when the sun sets before 6pm and the nights are longest.
  • The Icelandic Þorrablót winter festival is celebrated from mid-January to mid-February. Þorrablót is an old pagan festival originally celebrated by Iceland’s early settlers over 1,000 years ago. Revived in the 1800s, it brings local people together to eat, drink, dance and sing traditional songs.

Visiting Europe in February

In February, much of southern Europe gears up for a pre-Lent party, with carnivals in many cities, including Venice. Temperatures are still cool, and some attractions may be closed or have reduced opening hours. But, many make exceptions for carnival time, when they open for special events during the large-scale local festivities.

Events & Festivals

  • In Iceland, chances of seeing the northern lights are best between November and February, when the sun sets before 6pm and the nights are longest.
  • The Icelandic Þorrablót winter festival is celebrated from mid-January to mid-February. Þorrablót is an old pagan festival originally celebrated by Iceland’s early settlers over 1,000 years ago. Revived in the 1800s, it brings local people together to eat, drink, dance and sing traditional songs.
  • Expect elaborate masks and costumes, masquerade balls and full-on revelry at the Carnival of Venice, held in the two weeks before Lent.

Visiting Europe in March

By March, temperatures are beginning to warm up in southern Europe, though there might still be some rain. Depending on when Easter falls, you can find elaborate celebrations for Holy Week (the week before Easter) taking place.

Events & Festivals

  • Holy Week is a time for religious processions across Spain and, to a lesser extent, in Portugal and Italy.

Visiting Europe in April

Spring blooms, warmer temperatures and generally blue skies arrive in southern Europe in April, at a time when most hotels re-open and attractions switch to summer opening hours.

Although northern Europe is a little further behind, the weather is drier and warmer than earlier in the year, as the days become noticeably longer. You might also catch Holy Week celebrations across southern Europe in the week before Easter. April is one of the quieter times to visit Iceland, so you’re better able to enjoy sights away from the crowds.

Events & Festivals

  • If Holy Week falls in April, you’ll see religious processions in many Spanish cities, as well as in Portugal and Italy.
  • The Istanbul Tulip Festival, running from April into May, pays homage to one of Turkey’s most cherished flowers.
  • Seville’s annual fair, in the two weeks after Easter, brings carnival rides and dancing to the Spanish city.

Visiting Europe in May

May is one of the best months to visit Europe: gardens are looking their best, bright blooms cascade from window boxes and the summer crowds are yet to arrive. Southern Europe is pleasantly warm, making it a good time for exploring historic sites or cities. Northern Europe, though cooler, has long days and generally settled weather.

Events & Festivals

  • The Reykjavík Arts Festival takes place for three weeks each year in May or June. This is a major event in the capital that invites hundreds of artists from around the world to showcase their work.
  • Kirkjubæjarklaustur Chamber Music Festival takes place in the summer (month varies) in southern Iceland, on a magnificent lava-field landscape.
  • The Istanbul Tulip Festival, running from April into May, pays homage to one of Turkey’s most cherished flowers.

Visiting Europe in June

Clear blue skies and rising temperatures see the beach towns of southern Europe burst into action. It’s a good time to tour the Mediterranean or explore major cities without the summer crowds. In northern Europe, daylight stretches long into the evening, temperatures are pleasant and, ahead of schools breaking up, attractions are generally quieter.

Events & Festivals

  • The Reykjavík Arts Festival takes place for three weeks each year in May or June. This is a major event in the capital that invites hundreds of artists from around the world to showcase their work.

Visiting Europe in July

Higher temperatures, long hours of sunshine and the school summer break signal July as the start of Europe’s busiest travel season, with larger numbers of visitors across Europe. Many festivities and events take place, including concerts in historic buildings.

Events & Festivals

  • The Palio, a historic horse race between the city’s contrade (districts), takes place in Siena on 2nd July.

Visiting Europe in August

It’s holiday season in Europe, with many locals flocking to the beaches to escape the heat inland, particularly in the south. The Mediterranean beaches and cities can feel crowded.

Events & Festivals

  • The Palio, a historic horse race between the city’s contrade (districts), takes place in Siena on 16th August.
  • Menningarnótt (Culture Night) is celebrated in Reykjavík in August. This is a major event, with roads closing for street performers and fireworks in the evening.
  • Fiskidagurinn Mikli (Great Fish Day) takes place on the first or second Saturday of August in the fishing village of Dalvík, in north Iceland. This is a big social event, with outdoor seafood buffets, and free fish soup offered in locals’ homes.
  • Síldarævintýri (Herring Adventure Music Festival) is hosted in the town of Siglufjörður, in north Iceland, over the early August public holiday. In the past, the festival has featured a broad range of Icelandic music, from folk singing to Sigur Rós.
  • The Palio, a historic horse race between the city’s contrade (districts), takes place in Siena on 2nd July.

Visiting Europe in September

As schools reopen, temperatures decrease and the summer crowds dissipate, September proves a great time to visit Europe. The temperatures are still pleasant, the sea is at its warmest, and there are fewer people at major attractions and on the coast. It’s also harvest time, with food festivals and events celebrating the wine, cheese, truffles, oysters and olives of the region.

Events & Festivals

  • The Regata Storica takes place in Venice on the first Sunday in September, with gondola races, gondoliers in traditional dress and waterborne pageantry.
  • The grape harvest begins across southern Europe toward the end of September, and some wineries invite visitors to see the process take place.

Visiting Europe in October

Cooler temperatures make October a good time to visit Europe’s cities and explore on foot. Seasonal foliage brings the countryside to life, and regional harvests and their associated festivals continue.

While the south is pleasantly warm by day, nights are cooler. By the end of the month, northern Europe is noticeably colder and wetter, but can still see periods of warm, settled weather. In Iceland, October is typically the wettest month, but there are noticeably fewer visitors compared to the summer months.

Visiting Europe in November

November is one of the quietest months of the year to travel to Europe. Many hotels and attractions close, and cooler temperatures lead to far fewer visitors on the streets. It’s also a time when you can benefit from better value on flights and hotel reservations. Major museums, galleries and historic sites are quieter, and you can photograph Europe’s landmarks at their most tranquil.

Events & Festivals

  • In Iceland, chances of seeing the northern lights are best between November and February, when the sun sets before 6pm and the nights are longest.

Visiting Europe in December

Christmas dominates the European cultural calendar in December, as festive markets and lights brighten up the cities. Although rural areas are much quieter, the countryside under a dusting of frost or snow can look magical in the north. New Year’s celebrations are another good reason to visit, when you’ll experience street parties and fireworks in most major cities.

Events & Festivals

  • In the 13 days before Christmas in Iceland, troll-like Jólasveinar (‘Yule lads’) are said to visit children one-by-one in the days leading up to Christmas. Formerly, they tried to play tricks on people, but now they leave children small gifts. You might see the Jólasveinar projected onto buildings in Reykjavík, and they visit some hotels to leave small tokens for guests.
  • New Year’s Eve is the biggest party of the year in Iceland, when bonfires and fireworks are lit, and Icelanders gather to share the warmth and sing. Belief in elves (huldufólk) is widespread in the country and they’re said to be most active at New Year, so it’s common for Icelanders to reference them in songs at this time of year.
  • In Iceland, chances of seeing the northern lights are best between November and February, when the sun sets before 6pm and the nights are longest.

Europe trip ideas and travel guides

Where to Travel in Europe in April 2020

Whether you’re planning a family trip during spring break, a romantic getaway for two, or a solo trek, Europe in April is a great destination. Why? For starters, flights to Europe are cheaper than they will be in the height of the summer. That also means that Europe’s most famous destinations will be a lot less crowded. The weather across most of Europe also drastically improves as the spring gets into full swing — you may even find hot days in the Canary Islands and Sicily in late April. However, you’ll want to pay attention to when Easter hits, as Holy Week can mean variable opening hours and, in some places, huge crowds. But don’t worry — we’ve scoped out the 10 best destinations in Europe for you to visit this April. Read on and get planning.

In case you’d prefer to travel in the summer, check out our list of the least crowded European destinations.

If you’re lusting after a holiday that involves hiking, beautiful views, and colorful villages, the Cinque Terre is for you. “The Five Lands” from north to south are Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. There are hotels in each of the five villages, or you could choose to stay in nearby Biassa or La Spezia, where the IC trains stop. Many properties in the region will have a daily shuttle to Riomaggiore, and from there you can set your pace of exploring. There’s a train that runs between all five villages, but for those looking for a little more adventure, you should definitely consider the Cinque Terre hike that links the towns and provides amazing scenery. Just make sure that the paths are open when you visit. The trail going south from Monterosso to Vernazza is definitely worth all the steps, as the view of Vernazza is spectacular. Of course, there’s an abundance of fresh seafood in the towns, and you can choose to explore the coast by boat or kayak as well. With temperatures in the mid 60s, and the likelihood of rain diminishing, April is the perfect time to visit Cinque Terre before the summer crowds arrive.

Our Cinque Terre Hotel Pick: La Torretta

With its location right in the middle of charming Manarola, it’s hard to top La Torretta when it comes to convenience. However, it also happens to be one of the most charming spots in town, with quaint rooms that include perks like Nespresso machines. You’re within an easy walk of the train and marina here, and breakfast is free.

Colorful tulips at the Amsterdam Bloemenmarket/Oyster

While Amsterdam isn’t exactly warm and sunny in April, this is still one of the best times to visit the city. Why is that? You might have heard of the Netherlands’ most famous flower once or twice: the tulip. If you time your visit to mid-April or later, you’ll arrive at peak tulip season, when the massive fields surrounding the Dutch capital are at their most spectacular. Keukenhof Gardens is the place to see these beauties in bloom, and is only open for 51 days per year (30 of which are during the month of April). It’s about a 35-minute drive from central Amsterdam, though packages that bundle transport and admission are available as well. Of course, there’s plenty to do in the city itself. Amsterdam hosts its own Tulip Festival in April, and several major music festivals generally occur during the month. The Canal Ring and other neighborhoods are packed with restaurants and cafes, and the whole scene is generally just incredibly charming. Make sure to give yourself time to visit major sights like the Rijksmusem, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Anne Frank House as well.

Our Amsterdam Hotel Pick: Pulitzer Amsterdam

The Pulitzer Amsterdam is a pinch-yourself stay right in the atmospheric heart of the city. We love the inner Canal Ring location, as well as its spacious rooms, classic-meets-modern style, and incredible Clefs d’Or service. It’s also provides canal tours on a historic boat, which are free for hotel guests.

Mountain views at the Cañadas del Teide National Park in Tenerife/Oyster

While you shouldn’t expect crowd-free beaches in the Canary Islands in April, it’s hard to argue with almost zero rainfall, sunny skies, and warm temperatures after a long, grueling winter. If you’re looking for lively beach vibes and are willing to pay a premium, the hotels of Gran Canaria’s Maspalomas and Tenerife’s Playa de las Americas are certainly alive at this time of year. However, if you’d like something more peaceful and a bit otherworldly, you’d do well to head to Lanzarote or stick to the interior and northern regions of Tenerife. Both offer stunning rugged landscapes that crash into mind-bogglingly blue seas, making for incredible scenery around almost every corner. We recommend renting a car to best reach either island’s beautiful landscapes. On Lanzarote, check out the volcanic terrain of Timanfaya National Park and the picture-perfect crescent bay of Playa de Papagayo. On Tenerife, head to Las Cañadas del Teide National Park (or opt for a tour).

Our Lanzarote Hotel Pick: La Isla Y El Mar Hotel Boutique 

With sharp contemporary design and a boutique size, La Isla y El Mar is one of our favorites on Lanzarote. It’s located at the western edge of Puerto del Carmen and features range from in-room Nespresso machines to saltwater pools and a spa.

Coastal cliffs and the fort outside of Sagres, Portugal/Oyster

Looking for warm days and light-jacket nights plus nearly always sunny skies? Head to the Algarve in April. While the water might be too cold for a dip in any of the seaside towns that make up the region, an April visit is perfect for strolling the region’s more charming towns and taking in the dramatic coastal scenery. We recommend spending most of your time in Lagos, which has a hard-to-top charming historic core, along with some of the prettiest beaches (and seaside cliffs) in the region. While April isn’t quite beach season, surfers are certainly more than welcome and eager to get into the water. The beaches of Sagres — the westernmost of the Algarve towns — are legendary for surfing (and far less crowded in April). The landscapes in this region area also unbelievable. Make sure you rent a car to criss-cross the region. Other cool towns include beautiful Tavira, at the eastern edge of the region, as well as the more local inland hills.

Our Algarve Hotel Pick: Martinhal Sagres Resort

Martinhal Sagres Beach Resort & Hotel is a chic luxury village makes a great home base for a couple nights in Sagres at the beginning or end of your trip. Expect spectacular sea and countryside views plus sports facilities and a great spa.

The Eiffel Tower in Paris, France/Oyster

Yes — Paris is always a good idea. And Paris in April is a particularly good idea, as this already pretty city is bursting with early blooms. You’ll have to contend with the possibility of wet weather — on average the city sees eight days of rain in April — but that’s all the more excuse to tuck into a romantic cafe, or hit up one of Paris’ incredible museums, like the Musee d’Orsay or the Louvre. The major plus to visiting Paris in April is that you’re safely missing the summer high season in the city, when rates on hotels become prohibitive and flights are sometimes over $1,000 round-trip from the United States. The likelihood of warmer temperatures also mean that bike tours of Versailles — a must-do for any Paris visitor — are a better bet than in winter.

Our Paris Hotel Pick: Hotel des Grands Boulevards

This gorgeous boutique hotel on the Right Bank stands out for its sleek design that subtly nods to the court of Marie Antoinette. Rooms feel like chicly pared-down boudoirs, with handmade beds with satin sheets — and destination dining and drinking isn’t to be underestimated.

Kylemore Abbey in County Galway, Ireland/Oyster

While Ireland might not be the first destination that comes to mind for an April vacation in Europe, trust us, it’s worth it. Temperatures are pretty mild — averaging around 55 degrees Fahrenheit — and it usually only rains about nine days out of the month. Of course, this is Ireland, and weather can change on a dime, so you’ll still need to be prepared for potential wet days. We suggest basing yourself in Galway. Here, the charming Latin Quarter makes up the heart of town, and you’ll find tons of friendly bars and buzzing pubs with live music (The King’s Head is a must-see 800-year-old bar.) There are plenty of quaint shops selling Irish crafts, and the River Corrib provides a lovely setting for a romantic walk. Head west of the Corrib for a taste of the more local foodie side of town. We suggest taking an excursion to nearby Burren and the famous Cliffs of Moher. If you feel comfortable driving on the left side of the road, you can rent a car and explore County Galway of nearby County Clare. You’ll see 16th-century castles and fairy-tale worthy sights like Kylemore Abbey.

Our Galway Hotel Pick: The House Hotel

Situated right at the edge of Galway’s buzzing Latin Quarter, the House Hotel is one of the city’s original boutique hotels. Expect bright, homey decor, cozy rooms, and a restaurant that draws a mix of locals and tourists alike.

Portugal’s location in southern Europe makes it an ideal location to visit any time of the year, but mid-spring is all the more enchanting. While much of Europe is still rainy and chilly in April, the average temperature in Lisbon hovers in the high 60s. That makes exploring the city all the more pleasant.There are plenty of shops, historic bars, and cafes throughout the neighborhoods of Baixa, Chiado, Bairro Alto, and the Alfama. We also recommend St. George’s Castle, dating to the 12th century, which sits on a hill in central Lisbon and has stunning city views. After that, head to Belem, which is an easy and quick tram or train ride to the west. Belem’s historic sights include the Torre de Belem and the incredible Jeronimos Monastery. Another must-do in Belem is a visit to Pasteis de Belem, where the iconic pastel de nata may or may not have been invented in the 1830s. If you’re after something more modern, stop off at the MAAT (Museum of Art, Architecture, and Technology) or spend an afternoon at the lively LX Factory, which is packed with cafes, restaurants, vintage sellers, street art, and cool boutiques Other day trips include tours to the whimsical castles of Sintra. Lisbon also happens to be a stellar destination for LGBTQ travelers, with a small, but lively gay bar scene, and even hotels that cater to the community (like The Late Birds Lisbon).

Our Hotel Pick in Lisbon: Solar do Castelo

If you’re after an only-in-Lisbon experience, you can’t do better than a stay at Solar do Castelo. For starters, it’s the only hotel that’s located inside of the grounds of St. George’s Castle, putting you right in the middle of the city’s historic atmosphere. Yes, it means you’ll have to scale some hills to get home if you’re out exploring for the day, but what a home it is. Rooms are chic and charming, and the style throughout the property transports you to another era and place altogether.

The charming stone alleyways of Dubrovnik/Oyster

While “Game of Thrones” certainly made Dubrovnik famous, the truth is that this stunning Adriatic Sea city has been charming visitors for decades. If you’re in town because of your undying affection for the television series, you’ll quickly notice locations for scenes in King’s Landing, as well as Qarth and Slaver’s Bay. While that attention has translated to massive summer onslaughts of tourists, April in Dubrovnik can be a bit calmer. You’ll get to explore the walls surrounding Dubrovnik’s Old Town — which are some of the most well preserved in Europe — with less crowds. Inside of those walls, Dubrovnik’s quaint streets and alleys are made of stone and lined with bars and restaurants serving fresh seafood and Croatian wine. While the average temperature in April hovers in the mid 50s, you can also expect warmer days that make strolling around all the more pleasant.

Our Dubrovnik Hotel Pick: Villa Dubrovnik

There’s a reason why Villa Dubrovnik is one of the most popular hotels in this historic part of Croatia. For starters, its setting couldn’t be prettier, set on the Adriatic cliffs just a mile from the Old Town. The luxury amenities here are also hard to top — think: heated flooring, hot tubs, and sea-view balconies.

View of central Palermo, Sicily, and mountains/Oyster

To say that Sicily is trending is an understatement. If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll know that social media has been lighting up with pictures of its pretty beaches, stunning towns, and beautifully aging (and chaotic) cities. We also happen to think Sicily in April is pretty much perfect. Temperatures are in the mid 60s and skies stay drier than the winter months. You’ll also be missing the hordes of tourists that descend upon historic destinations like Catania and Syracuse, letting you actually enjoy all of the atmosphere. Palermo buzzes year round, and its equally majestic and crumbling core is worth more than a few days of exploring. Keep in mind that public transit it terrible across Sicily, so you’ll want to rent a car to get around. That gives you plenty of opportunity to explore destinations from Mount Etna to Ortigia Island and the ruins of Taormina. Alternatively, you can opt for a tour that hits up a mix of Sicilian historic sights and beautiful natural destinations.

Our Sicily Hotel Pick: Hotel Villa Ducale

If you’re after views for days and charming boutique atmosphere, Hotel Villa Ducale in Taormina is a no-brainer. There are plenty of places throughout the hotel to take in those sweeping coastal views (including many of the rooms). Decor is certainly old-fashioned, but we love details like exposed wooden beams and classic tiling.

Seville cathedral from the street/Oyster

While we’ve cautioned you about visiting Europe during Easter, there’s on place where Easter and Holy Week are actually the reason for visiting. Welcome to Seville (Sevilla), where the ceremonies at this time of year are surreal. Don’t expect bargains — April in Seville means high prices on hotels — and you certainly won’t have the town to yourself. Instead, you’ll need to book your hotel far in advance, as Seville’s Holy Week festivities are some of the most remarkable in the world. Expect a series of processions that include iconic costumes and pageantry, all of which start and end at the city’s magnificent cathedral. While Semana Santa, as it’s known in Spanish, is prime time for visiting Sevilla, you’d also do well to visit for the April Fair (Feria de Sevilla). This historic event (dating back to the early 19th century), celebrates flamenco, food, and lights.

Our Seville Hotel Pick: EME Catedral Hotel

This cool boutique sits right next door to the Seville Cathedral, in the heart of the historic center. Why does that matter? All of the Holy Week processions begin and end at the cathedral. As an added bonus, the rooms are fresh and modern, and there’s a rooftop bar with great cathedral views.

Climate of Germany, weather in Germany

Germany is located in Central Europe and borders with Denmark, Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Switzerland, Belgium, France, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. Its shores are washed by the Baltic and North Seas. 81 million people live on an area of ​​357 thousand km². The northern part of the state is a plain, wooded foothills adjoin the central regions, and most of the south is occupied by the Jura mountain range and the Black Forest forest. The highest point is the Zugspitze (2962 m). The main rivers in the country are the Danube, the Rhine and the Elbe.

Germany is under the influence of the temperate continental climate zone. The sea has a significant influence on the weather of the northern regions.

Ukraine weather forecast for April 2022

Ukraine weather forecast for April 2022

Igor Kibalchich
Synoptic

April this year is expected to be humid, with significant fluctuations in air temperature and gusty winds.

The nature of the weather in April is often distinguished by its diversity and changeability. At this time of the year, atmospheric conditions are already completely rebuilt from winter to summer. In some years, April can surprise with summer heat (as in 2012 or 2013), when the maximum temperatures at the end of the month reached +30 °С and even higher. But sometimes there are heavy snowfalls at negative average daily temperatures (as it was in 2017 in the southern and eastern regions of Ukraine).

As the calculations of numerical forecasting models CFS and ECMWF show, this April, a field of low atmospheric pressure will be established in the territory of almost all of Europe both in the surface layer and in the middle troposphere. This situation is a sign of increased cyclonic activity in most European countries and in Ukraine, in particular. Cyclones will contribute to abundant rainfall, often you can observe increased winds and sharp fluctuations in air temperature. And only in the countries of Southern Europe and within the Mediterranean Sea, due to higher atmospheric pressure, humidification is expected to be insufficient.

Interesting weather facts

25 September 18:10

As for the territory of Ukraine, in most regions during April a significant amount of precipitation is predicted and in total for a month in the western and northern regions of the country 140 – 160% of the climatic norm may fall. Moreover, in the first days of the month, the rains here will gradually turn into snow and sleet against the backdrop of a significant drop in air temperature. In some areas, even a temporary snow cover will be established, including in the capital. In the southern and eastern regions, precipitation will fall mainly in the form of rains, sometimes with thunderstorms, and their total amount for the month will be within the normal range.

The temperature background on the territory of Ukraine will be distributed unevenly. The highest monthly averages are expected in the eastern, central and southern regions, exceeding the monthly norm by 1 – 3 °С . In the western and northern regions of the country, the average temperature for April will, on the contrary, be below the norm by 1 – 3 °С due to the predominance of air currents from the northwest. Moreover, in the first decade of the month there will be a significant contrast in the temperature across the country. In the southern and eastern regions on April 1-3 in the daytime, under the influence of warm southern winds, the air will warm up to almost summer values ​​of +18…+23 °С. But in the west and north of Ukraine, due to the arrival of a cold air mass of arctic origin, daytime temperatures will be within the range of only -1 … + 4 ° С. Until the end of the first decade of the month, cool weather is expected throughout the country with night frosts and increased wind on some days. Gradually from April 10-11, starting from the southwestern regions, a warmer air mass will spread to the territory of Ukraine. By the way, the meteorological spring (a steady transition of the average daily temperature above +5 °C) has already begun in the third decade of March, and a cold snap in early April will not particularly affect the vegetation of plants, since significant frosts are not expected.

As a side note, April is one of the windiest months of the year. Constant fluctuations in atmospheric pressure, the change of cyclones and anticyclones, as well as the warming of the earth’s surface contribute to intensive mixing of air in the surface layer, therefore, windy days will often be observed this year, with gusts up to dangerous values ​​(more than 15 m/s). In the event of increased wind over a large area of ​​the country, we will draw up operational storm warnings, so stay with us to always be aware of a possible deterioration in weather conditions.

The head of the Ob-Irtysh UGMS, Natalia Krivoruchko, summed up the weather results for April this year. According to her, weather forecasters recorded new daily highs in air temperature three times a month.

“April is probably the most changeable and unpredictable month. And the point is not at all in the forecasts of weather forecasters, they are, as always, accurate. The point is in the nature of April itself

The end of snowmelt along the permanent rail in the territory of the Omsk region was celebrated on April 4-16,” the institution noted.

As Krivoruchko specified, the average monthly air temperature in April was +4…+7°, which is 2-3° higher than the norm.

The first and second decades of the month turned out to be with a positive anomaly, the average air temperature exceeded the norm by 3-6°. In the third decade, the average air temperature was near and below the norm by 1-2°.

The maximum air temperature at the end of April increased to +26…+28°. The highest is registered at eight stations of the region. The minimum air temperature dropped to -4…-10° in the period from 22 to 24 April.

“In Omsk, the daily maximum air temperature was blocked three times. So, on April 4, the maximum was +15.5°, the previous indicator of +13.9° was observed in 1995, on April 5 the temperature increased to +16.8°, earlier +15.2° was recorded in 1995 and on April 16, when the maximum was +24.1°, and the previous +24° was observed in 1973.

Precipitation was mixed, with a shortfall in most areas. Their amount was 19-121% of the climatic norm,” the expert noted.

At seven stations in the northern half of the region on April 22, a temporary snow cover up to 0-5 cm high was established.

20 days.

On some days of the month, fogs were observed in places with a deterioration in visibility of 200-500 m, the wind increased to 13-18 m/s.

The sum of effective temperatures on the territory of the Omsk region above +5ºС at the end of April was 60-86ºС, which is 30-60ºС higher than the norm of the previous year.

Complete melting of the snow cover was observed in the forest-steppe and steppe regions on April 5-8, in the taiga regions on April 11-17, 10-18 days earlier than the average dates.

Complete thawing of the soil was observed in most areas of the region on April 6-27, 14-42 days earlier than long-term periods. Incomplete thawing of the soil in Tevriz, Sedelnikovo, Bolshereche, Tyukalinsk and Odessa.

The soil reached its soft-plastic state in most areas of the region on April 11-28, earlier than usual by 7-18 days, in Cherlak, Sargatka and Russkaya Polyana – terms close to long-term. In Tara, Bolsherechye and Isilkul, the topsoil is still heavily moistened.

The beginning of the growing season (the transition of the average daily air temperature through 5 ºС upwards) took place on April 12-13, earlier than the long-term average by 8-20 days.

In most of the steppe regions on April 17-18, the first determination of the reserves of productive moisture in the soil was carried out. Moisture reserves in the 0-20 cm soil layer were 22-43 mm, in the 0-100 cm layer 102-149 mm, in some places there was a strong insufficient moistening of the arable and meter layer (Poltavka, Cherlak and Russkaya Polyana).

The resumption of vegetation in winter wheat in Omsk was noted on April 18, in terms close to long-term. The field is assessed satisfactorily.

Perennial grasses in the north of the region (Tevriz) resumed vegetation on April 22, in the south (Pavlogradka) on April 14, in terms close to perennial.

The beginning of sap flow, the unfolding of the first leaves, in some places flowering in trees was noted on April 12-26, at the usual time and earlier by 5-14 days.

Earlier, “MK in Omsk” wrote that in the Omsk region weather forecasters predict very strong wind and snow with rain on May 6-7.

Crops monitoring in Europe from April 26, 2022

Generally favorable conditions in most countries of Europe

Drought conditions in the southern regions slightly reduce yield forecasts

Weather conditions in most countries of western, northern and central Europe during this reporting period were favorable for the cultivation of winter crops and made it possible to successfully carry out spring sowing and other field work. Since the season has just begun, yield projections for these regions are based on historical trends. Unfavorable weather conditions have been observed in several parts of southern and central Europe, leading to an overall slight downward revision in winter crop yield forecasts.

Heavy rains in southern Spain and Portugal brought relief from the drought but came too late to fully restore yield potential and caused some physical damage to plants. Rainfall in central Spain was not enough to avoid deteriorating soil moisture conditions. The ongoing drought in northern, central and southwestern Italy has negatively affected the development of winter crops and delayed the planting of spring crops. Adverse dry conditions – so far with limited negative impact on winter crops – are also present in Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Romania and southern Ukraine.

In southeastern Italy and Turkey, crop growth and development are lagging behind as cold temperatures persist.

Agrometeorological Review

Based on data from March 1, 2022 to April 22, 2022

In the first days of April, a large region stretching from central Spain to the Baltic experienced exceptionally cold weather. Temperatures on the coldest days dropped to -6°C to -8°C in parts of central Spain, central France and Germany. However, impacts on crops are likely to be very limited as sensitive developmental stages had not yet been reached when the cold weather arrived. There will be some negative impact on flowering rapeseed, but only a slight decrease in potential yields is expected. There is also a limited impact on newly emerging early planted sugar beet seedlings.

However, severe irreversible damage to flowering fruit crops has been reported; especially in Spain.

Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey are experiencing consistently cooler than usual temperatures this spring. These conditions are delaying the development of crops, but there are currently no real concerns about the final yield.

In the southern parts of the Iberian Peninsula, heavy rains have brought relief from the previous drought, but caused some physical damage to plants. In central Spain, rainfall in the first half of March initially improved soil moisture conditions, but shortages persist and rain has not been enough to prevent crop deterioration.

The drought continued in southeastern France and northern, central and southwestern Italy. In the Italian regions, this negatively affects the development of winter crops, and also delays the sowing of spring crops. Light rain in late March/early April allowed for limited planting of spring crops. A slight improvement in conditions is observed in the north-east of Italy. Here, the soils are less dry, and winter crop biomass accumulation is only slightly below average. In southeast Italy, consistently colder than usual temperatures are delaying crop development and leading to below-average biomass accumulation.

Unfavorable dry conditions are also present in Central Europe (Hungary, Slovenia and Croatia), Romania and southern Ukraine, but to date this has had a limited negative impact on winter crops and good yields are still possible if conditions improve.

In the Maghreb region, recent heavy rains in Morocco and Algeria came too late to cause any recovery in winter crops. The season is coming to an end and yield expectations remain very low.

Figure 2. Problem areas – spring/winter crops.

Meteorological Survey (from March 1 to April 18, 2022)

Slightly warmer than usual conditions with average daily temperature anomalies (relative to LTA) of up to 0. 5 °С C has been observed in France, the Benelux countries, the British Isles and the Scandinavian Peninsula.

Slightly colder-than-usual conditions with average daily temperature anomalies (relative to LTA) of -2°C to -0.5°C have been observed over much of southern, central and eastern Europe. More pronounced negative anomalies (from -4 °C to -2 °C) were observed in parts of Romania and Bulgaria, as well as in most of Greece and Turkey. The number of cold days (with a minimum temperature below 0 °C) exceeded the LTA in almost all parts of Europe, with the exception of Spain, as well as parts of northern France and the southern parts of the British Isles.

While cold anomalies in eastern and (more pronounced) southeastern Europe were mainly associated with extended periods of frost during the first three weeks of March, the first days of April were exceptionally cold in a vast region stretching from central Spain to Baltic region.

Wetter than usual conditions were observed in central and southern Spain and southern Portugal. Precipitation anomalies in these regions ranged from +50% to over +100% with respect to LTA. In southern Spain and southern Portugal, this marked the end of a period of drought that had lasted since autumn 2021. Less distinct humidity anomalies were observed in western Russia and along the Atlantic coast of the Scandinavian Peninsula.

Drier than usual conditions with -30% to less than -50% precipitation anomalies relative to LTA have been observed in a wide band extending from northern France to the Baltic region, and in central and northern Italy, southern France and large parts of Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Romania and western Ukraine.

Figure 6. Cumulative precipitation from March 1 to April 18, 2022 (percentage deviation from the long-term average).

Weather conditions will be mainly determined by cyclonic disturbances affecting central and eastern Europe in the first half of the week. These atmospheric patterns will be associated with a northwesterly flow of cold air over northeastern Europe. These large-scale atmospheric conditions will contribute to atmospheric instability and precipitation. By the end of the forecast period, the Iberian Peninsula will also approach a cyclonic pattern favoring rainfall.

Colder than usual weather conditions are expected in much of central, eastern and northern Europe. Average daily temperature anomalies from -4°C to -2°C are predicted over a vast area stretching from Germany to northwestern Russia.

Warmer than usual conditions are expected in large areas of southeast Europe, Turkey and along the eastern Black Sea. Anomalies of average daily temperature from 4°C to 6°C are predicted in these areas.

Total precipitation of 30 mm to 70 mm is forecast over large areas in Spain and France, a wide region centered on the Alps, most parts of Romania, and large areas of Bulgaria and Turkey.

Long range weather forecast for May, June and July indicates extremely likely warmer than usual conditions in southern Europe associated with likely drier than usual conditions. Warmer-than-usual conditions are highly likely in northern Europe.

Planting conditions

Spring barley

Good progress under dry conditions

In Spain, the largest spring barley producing country in the European Union, planting was in good condition and was completed by February. Planting of spring barley was also completed successfully in France, the Benelux countries, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Ireland and the United Kingdom, where dry conditions allowed for good progress in late March and rainfall in early April provided conditions for emergence.

In Poland, Romania, Hungary, Ukraine, sowing went well due to dry weather, but low soil moisture delayed seedlings. More rainfall is required to ensure optimal germination and uniform rooting of the crop.

In the Baltic Sea region, spring sowing usually starts in the second half of April, and low minimum temperatures do not allow starting earlier.

Sugar beet

Cold conditions at the beginning of the growing season

Adequate temperature conditions and moisture content of the topsoil made it possible to start sowing sugar beet in France in the second decade of March, to quickly carry out and complete sowing work (most fields were sown within 10 days). However, freezing temperatures recorded in the first days of April locally damaged crops in the early stages of germination, and some fields require re-sowing.

Similar agrometeorological conditions prevailed in the Benelux countries. In Belgium and the Netherlands, the sowing campaign, which began in the second decade of March, proceeded successfully until early April, when it was prevented by rains. However, most of the planting work was completed by the end of March under optimal conditions. Conditions improved again in the second decade of April and planting is expected to be completed in the coming days. As in France, frost damage was due to a cold snap in early April and some fields will need to be reseeded (eg 500 ha in the Netherlands at the moment).

In Germany and Poland, the sowing campaign started at the optimum time (mid-March). Excessively dry topsoil and frosty night conditions have slowed down the pace of field work. Nevertheless, by mid-April, more than 60% and 40% of the areas were sown, respectively, in Poland and Germany. Low-intensity rains in the first decade of April improved soil moisture conditions for seed germination and early seedling development.

In the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Austria, colder than usual and sometimes excessively dry conditions during the first two decades of March prevented germination and early development of sugar beet. It is expected that the cold weather in early April did not cause significant damage to the seedlings.

Maize

Favorable conditions after a delayed start

In Western Europe, the planting campaign was started at the end of March/beginning of April, with some delays compared to previous years. In France and Germany, the ongoing planting campaign is benefiting from warm, wet conditions after the first week of April.

In Italy and Spain, the sowing campaign started later than usual on dry soils. The situation is very mixed, depending on the distribution of rain and the strategies adopted by farmers to maintain sufficient soil moisture. In Italy, reservoir levels are very low and water for irrigation will not be sufficient to meet demand, raising serious concerns about the growing season. In Spain, reservoir levels improved in March but remain low, and water use restrictions can be expected.

In Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania, low temperatures and dry soil have delayed the planting campaign, which began in the last week of March. Rains in early April and high temperatures contributed to good germination.

Sunflower

Dry conditions delay planting start

In Romania, Hungary and Ukraine, dry conditions have somewhat delayed the start of the planting campaign and more rainfall is needed to ensure optimal germination. Similarly, in Bulgaria, dry soils combined with low temperatures have delayed planting in the western regions; in the eastern regions the campaign has been in full swing since the beginning of April. However, more rainfall is needed to ensure early crop development. Planting has started as usual in Greece, but there are concerns about the impact of dry conditions on seedlings.

In France and Germany, dry conditions at the end of March created favorable conditions for soil preparation and sunflower seeding, which started in early April and is ongoing.

In the south of Spain the campaign is going well, while in northern Spain and Italy it should start without significant delays.

A significant increase in planted area is expected in Italy, Spain, Greece and Bulgaria, partly due to corn.

Overview of Eastern Europe

Ukraine

Dry and cold conditions reduced the yield potential of winter crops

Ukraine experienced a much colder-than-usual start to spring. In the first two decades of March, temperatures were 2–4°C below LTA in most of the country, which led to a delay in the development of winter crops. From then until the end of the period under review, slightly warmer than usual conditions prevailed.

March was much drier than usual. Rain deficit ranging from 50 to 80% compared to LTA was recorded in the main areas of winter crops, most pronounced in the southern regions. Since the beginning of April, frequent and heavy precipitation has prevailed in the eastern half of the country, while precipitation close to seasonal levels has been recorded in the west.

Due to delayed crop development coupled with drier than usual conditions, winter crop yield forecasts have been revised down. MARS forecasts assume regular field work, such as nitrogen fertilization and disease control, which in reality remains uncertain due to the Russian encroachment on Ukrainian territory.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture of Ukraine, the sowing campaign of spring crops started on time and is currently going on as usual; however, planting across the entire projected area remains uncertain.

Turkey

Winter crops still delayed

In central Turkey, March was mostly colder than usual, with average temperature anomalies down to -6°C. These weather conditions were overcome in April, when temperatures reached +8°C compared to LTA in the first decade and then returned to seasonal values. Rainfall was average or slightly below average. The vegetative development of winter crops is noticeably delayed, but so far this does not cause concern.

In the southeast of Turkey, the weather conditions were the same: cold March (with an average temperature of only slightly above 0 °C between 10 and 20 March) and a very warm beginning of April with an average temperature mostly above 15 °C. Rainfall, which usually limits yields, was on average or slightly (40 to 80 mm) above average. The development of winter crops is delayed, but there is a satisfactory accumulation of biomass.

Figure 10. Average daily temperature in Ankara.

European part of Russia

Satisfactory conditions so far

After a much milder than usual winter, the temperature dropped sharply in March, which temporarily hampered the development of winter crops. Temperatures up to 2°C below average prevailed, except in the southernmost regions where even lower temperatures were observed. Temperatures returned to above average levels in early April; the average positive temperature anomaly up to 4 °С was observed in the Central and Volga districts.

During the period under review, frequent precipitation fell, the level of which was close to seasonal. Wetter than usual conditions were observed only in the western part of the Central District and in the eastern part of the Volga District, where up to 50% of precipitation was above the norm.

In general, the condition of winter crops is satisfactory or good. In the Central and Volga regions, the snow began to melt in early April, and it is expected that winter crops have largely resumed their growth. In the Southern and North Caucasian districts, the yield potential has been maintained due to favorable weather conditions since the beginning of the season.

Figure 11. Minimum, maximum and average daily temperature in the Krasnodar Territory.

Figure 12. Precipitation in the Stavropol Territory.

Belarus

Satisfactory conditions for winter wheat

The period under review was characterized by temperatures below average, except for the last decade of March, which was warmer than usual. Frosts were very frequent, but minimum temperatures fell below -8°C only during short cold spells around 10 March.

March was very dry with no significant precipitation. Since the beginning of April, low-intensity but frequent rains and snowfalls have raised the amount of precipitation to the average level in the analyzed period in the south-eastern regions, but in the rest of the country, the total amount of precipitation remained significantly (< 30%) below the LTA.

Winter wheat is generally in fair condition and the MARS model does not assume frost damage to this crop. Modeling has shown that the development of winter wheat is in line with seasonal averages, and the level of soil moisture is generally sufficient. The sowing campaign for spring cereals began in the southern regions in the last ten days of March, but its progress was slowed down due to low night temperatures and in some places due to snow cover.

MARS yield forecasts are still based on historical trends as the season is just beginning.

“Moving towards the climate of Paris” Why does Moscow get covered in snow in April, while the Arctic gets hotter? The climatologist answers: Ecology: 69th parallel: Lenta.ru

Sharp temperature drops in the European part of Russia and winter weather, which returns to Moscow over and over again, make us think that the climate in the country is changing rapidly. Is it true? What will the weather be like during the May holidays and next summer and how global warming will change the Russian Arctic, Lenta.ru learned from the head of the laboratory of climatology of the Institute of Geography of the Russian Academy of Sciences, deputy director of the Obukhov Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences Vladimir Semenov.

Lenta.ru: What’s going on with the weather? Many people are afraid of sudden temperature fluctuations. In Moscow, it is either cold or sharply hot. The pressure is dropping. Snowfalls in April. Will it always be like this now?

Semyonov: An ambiguous question. On the one hand, it seems to us that these jumps are taking place, on the other hand, when we analyze the data of station measurements, we see that, in general, temperature variability across the country is decreasing. There are, of course, regions where it is growing slightly, but the general trend is not the same. In most regions of Russia, objectively, these jumps are getting smaller. And this is explained physically. The north is warming faster than the south, so when a cold invasion comes from the north, it is less cold than the south.

Yes, we feel strong surges, but this may be due to our perception. For every sneeze, we begin to be baptized, every weather anomaly causes discussion in the mass media. And if you look into the weather records, then such subtle anomalies have always existed – both a hundred and two hundred years ago. Therefore, I think we should always make allowances for the coverage of all these events and our interest in them. Weather is changeable by definition, and weather fluctuations have been, are and will be. Routinely analyzed data throughout Russia show that, in general, temperature variability has been falling over the past 40 years.

And the change in the length of the seasons is just an appearance?

No, that’s a fact. Indeed, the seasons are shifting. This applies, in particular, to the onset of cold temperatures with a zero crossing. If earlier, 30 years ago, in the Moscow region this happened already in the first days of November, now it happens in the second half of November . Because if the temperature is consistently below zero, then the snow does not melt. Conditional winter is coming. Now it starts towards the end of November, and in Moscow, even snow on New Year’s Eve is already a rarity.

The same thing happens with spring – now it comes earlier. Although the spring was reduced not by two weeks, but somewhere by one. And winter due to this has already been reduced by almost a month, it turns out.

Will there ever be European winters without snow in Russia?

Russia is a huge country. Therefore, here we will only talk about the European territory, which is influenced by the Atlantic, thanks to which Europe is so warm. In the Moscow region, it has already become warmer by about 3-3.5 degrees in winter, and by 2 degrees in summer.

In the next 30 years it will get warmer by four or even five degrees. Already now, the average January temperatures are somewhere around minus five degrees. That is literally 20-30 years – and in Moscow the temperature in winter will be on average above zero. That is, the winter will be the same as now in Hamburg, for example

If the temperature is above zero, then there will be no snow. And if it does, then a week or two. This is quite a close prospect on the European territory of Russia.

In the east and north of the country, the influence of the Atlantic air masses is much weaker, respectively, the warming will be slower. And beyond the Urals and in Siberia, the climate is continental, the influence of the Atlantic is not great there: well, it was minus 25 – it will become minus 18. In Yakutia, the change is as follows: it was minus 45 in winter – it became minus 42. Has it become warmer? Well, yes. But who will notice?

Have you noticed anything else unusual over the past year?

We are not looking at a specific year. One winter can be abnormally warm, another abnormally cold. We look at average trends. In addition to the obvious increase in temperature, this is also a change in the nature of precipitation. For example, on the European territory of Russia, we see a shift in precipitation towards showers. Roughly speaking, there are fewer long-term light rains and an increase in the number of short-term showers. Such weather is typical for more southern territories – for Rostov-on-Don and Voronezh, for example. But now this situation is becoming familiar to Moscow. First a downpour, then a heat wave, the atmosphere accumulates moisture, another downpour, another hot weather, and so on.

And what about the May holidays?

The hydrometeorological center predicted a strong warming and a sharp transition to May weather by the end of this week. As for summer, seasonal forecasts are justified very little, so we can only speak about it hypothetically.

I recently looked at the seasonal forecasts of the leading European centers, and they say that the summer in the European territory and in the western part of Russia as a whole will be slightly above the norm. Not extremely hot, but warm – warmer than usual. Winter is almost impossible to predict.0003

American scientists have found out that in the next few years lightning will occur more often in the Arctic and, allegedly, the number of fires in the region will increase sharply because of this. Is it really?

This is true. Thunderstorm activity spreads to more northern latitudes due to the fact that, due to warming, the atmosphere becomes more humid and warm. Relatively speaking, the boundary of such thunderstorm activity used to be much to the south, but now it is shifting to the north with warming. And the warming in the Arctic is happening faster than the global average.

But to say that everything will burn out there is still wrong. There is nothing to burn there, if we are talking about the tundra. There may be more lightning, but I do not see a serious threat to the rocks and snow yet.

The situation is different in the subarctic regions. In the taiga, of course, even now there are many forest fires. This is a very big problem. And the transition of these fires to the north is a long-known fact. With global warming, such risks, of course, exist.

It is said that the thawing of permafrost will lead to the thawing of various viruses and bacteria. The same anthrax… Afraid of new pandemics?

Yes, animals were buried there, there are deer burial grounds in the Arctic, and this indicates that there have been outbreaks of various diseases before. But people somehow fought and overcame them. Therefore, it cannot be said that this will become catastrophic in connection with global warming. If then they could overcome various infections, now, with all the planes, helicopters and advanced medicine, I think it will be easier to deal with this.

Moreover, the burial sites are known, and with some effort, such scenarios can be avoided. So, yes, there is such a danger, but this is exactly what is called adaptation to climate change. You just need to understand the risks and minimize them.

Due to global warming, glaciers are also melting. What will be the flood?

Due to the melting of glaciers on land, there is a gradual rise in the level of the world’s oceans – at a rate of 3-3.5 millimeters per year. It’s not very much. By the end of the century, an increase of 40 to 60 centimeters is predicted. For Russia, this is a small threat, with the exception of the Kaliningrad region, a region with gently sloping beaches. The coastline there can shift by tens and even hundreds of meters. But for other states it will be a big problem. Strong erosion will begin, the wave height will rise. Somewhere the water will reach meters or more, but for states located at the level of the World Ocean, this is already a problem.

As for floods on land, we don’t have many glaciers. Mountain glaciers, for example, are melting in the Caucasus. Locally, this increases the likelihood of mudflows, but it does not threaten large-scale floods.

Related materials:

In terms of floods, we should rather take care of the coastal regions – both in the south and in the north, and above all in the Far East, since changes in the monsoon circulation are taking place there. For example, in 2013, a combination of several factors led to severe flooding. This was also influenced by the increased transfer of moisture from the ocean to land. In the Black Sea in 2015, as our study showed, the flooding occurred due to warming and an increase in the temperature of the water surface. That is, in regions where there are reservoirs, oceans or seas nearby, it is indeed possible to increase the intensity of precipitation, which can also lead to floods.

This applies to the entire coast of the southern seas and the Far East. They are at risk. Crimea will be affected to a lesser extent, because it is a mountainous environment, there are more likely to be drain floods. For a flood to occur, a settlement must be in a valley, like Krymsk.

And this is a trend for the future, if we do not stop warming and temperatures continue to rise throughout the century. If we, in accordance with the Paris climate agreement, make efforts, then somewhere until the 2060s, the temperature will continue to rise, and then stop and begin to decline.

In Crimea, by the way, there is a drought, there is not enough water, the waterfalls dry up. Is it forever now?

In principle, yes, because with climate change, the Azores anticyclone, which extends from the Atlantic through the Mediterranean to the Black Sea, spreads further to the east, and in general the anticyclonic area in the subtropics becomes stronger. That is, the intensity of the anticyclone increases, and the anticyclone is a downward flow of cool dry air, it dries up the region over which it is located.

This trend is in line with climate change. Rainfall in this region will decrease.

Completely Crimea, of course, will not dry up. There will be precipitation. The danger of rare but intense showers is not ruled out. But their total volume will decrease by 10-15 percent. This, of course, is essential for the region. Moisture deficit conditions will remain, and something needs to be done about it.

Can the Suez Canal become shallow?

Nothing will happen to him, because the ocean level, on the contrary, is rising. And he has nothing to grind for. And the prospects for the Northern Sea Route are becoming more rosy not because of the shallowing of the Suez Canal, but because navigation conditions are easier. Due to the melting of ice, they become more favorable, and in 20 years even icebreaking assistance will no longer be needed. For most of the year, from January to June, according to our estimates, the Northern Sea Route will be ice-free, that is, dry cargo ships will be able to navigate without icebreakers, just like along the Suez Canal. And this almost doubles the path to Japan, Korea and China.

That is, there are pluses in warming?

Yes, although it is no longer the melting of glaciers, but the melting of sea ice. These are fundamentally different things, because when glaciers melt on land, the level of the ocean rises, but when sea ice melts, this does not happen.

Are there any other advantages?

In the Arctic, the extraction of natural resources will be facilitated, because it is much more convenient to do this in open water than in one covered with sea ice. And this is climate mitigation in the densely populated European territory of Russia.

That is, the winters will be milder, the summers will become warmer. .. But in summer the temperature will rise more slowly than in winter. In other words, we will move towards the climate of Paris

For the majority of the population, these are favorable changes, because in general our country lives in conditions of cold stress. And, of course, warming is a positive factor for the quality of life of the population.

In addition, precipitation will increase. As I said, there are fewer of them in the subtropics – in addition to the Crimea, this is also the south of the Krasnodar Territory. And in the northern latitudes, on the contrary, precipitation will increase. And this means an increase in the flow of northern rivers, followed by an increase in the amount of fresh water, which is the most valuable resource in the era of global warming. In the countries of Southeast Asia, on the contrary, the shortage of this resource will grow, and we, in addition to all our natural resources, will also have such a resource as fresh water.

But do not forget about the cons. This is an increase in the level of the World Ocean, and an increase in heat waves, and drought. In general, with global warming, the frequency of dangerous meteorological phenomena increases due to the fact that the atmosphere is more humid and contains more energy in the form of steam, which turns into motion energy and leads to various convective phenomena – showers, squalls, tornadoes. The same lightning – thunderstorm energy will grow, this is also a negative phenomenon in the thawing of permafrost.

All infrastructure in the north – roads, structures, pipelines – will also be at risk. Here we need investments, new constructive solutions.

Bears will also die out due to the shrinking ice.

Of course, if it becomes more difficult for bears to get food due to a change in their usual habitat, this will negatively affect their population. But I should note that in winter, sea ice will be present anyway. In addition, there has already been a period in history when there was critically little ice.

Geography

Spain is a country on the Iberian Peninsula on the Atlantic and Mediterranean coast. The land has a total area of 505,935 km² (195,342 mi²) and a total coastline of 4,964 km (3,084.5 mi). This land area is approximately 73% of the area of Texas. Spain is thus one of the largest countries in Europe and the 52nd biggest in the world. An exceptionally high proportion of residents (81%) belong to the urban population.

Spain lies at an average elevation of 660 meters above sea level. The highest mountain peak (Pico del Teide in Tenerife) is at 3,718 meters. The country has about 100 islands. There are direct national borders with the 5 neighbouring countries Andorra, France, Morocco, Gibraltar and Portugal. The distance between New York City and the Capital Madrid is about 5,770 km (3,585 mi).

The climate in Spain

Spain’s location between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees in the north create different climate zones throughout the country. While Atlantic air in the west ensures mild temperatures all year round, it is much warmer along the Mediterranean with partly tropical humidity. Near the Mediterranean Sea, most of the precipitation falls in autumn. The northern mountain regions, on the other hand, are the coolest areas. It is considerably warmer on the Canary Islands, which are located about 1000 km from the Spanish mainland on the coast of Africa. Here the climate is consistently subtropical and even in January it is rarely below 20°C during the day.

Spain Geography & Maps | Spain Tours, Trip & Vacation


Surrounded by both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, Spain is located in southwest Europe. It is bordered in the northeast by the Pyrenees Mountain range, occupying 80% of the Iberian Peninsula (the other 20% belongs to Portugal). As well to the peninsula, Spanish territory expands to neighbouring islands including the Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza) in the Mediterranean Sea. In the Atlantic Ocean, there are the Canary Islands, while Ceuta and Melilla in northern Africa are also part of Spain. 

With five big mountain ranges crossing the country, mainland Spain is the second highest but also the most mountainous country in Europe. The highest point on the Spanish peninsula is Mulhacén at 3,479 m (11414.04 ft), while Pico del Teide in the Canary Islands is the highest in the entire country. Located on the island of Tenerife, it stands at 3,718 m (12,198 ft). 

The administrative geography of Spain is divided up into seventeen regions, fifteen of which are found on the mainland. Covering a total area of 505,957 sq. km, and with a total population of 3. 234 million people, Madrid is the largest city in Spain and serves as its capital.

Iberia(Library of Congress Hispanic and Portuguese Collections: An Illustrated
Guide)

Spain and Portugal occupy the Iberian Peninsula, which is
separated at its southern tip from North Africa by only a narrow
strait situated at the juncture of the Mediterranean and the
Atlantic. This key geographical position played an important
part in Iberia’s history. From ancient times various
Mediterranean civilizations came, attracted by mineral and
agricultural potential. The Romans had the most lasting impact.
By the second century A.D. most of Iberia had been romanized in
language, religion, and law.

From the early eighth century until the late fifteenth
century Iberia’s history was Muslim domination and the Christian
attempts to reclaim political control over the peninsula. By the
fifteenth century a stable monarchy provided the impetus for
early Portuguese expansion. In Spain, the marriage of Isabel and
Fernando in 1479 marked the first steps towards forging modern
Spain. From those events, the modern states of Spain and
Portugal emerged. Portugal became the earliest European state.

In this
plate, the Netherlandish artist, Georg Hoefnagel, portrays
Seville frontally from a raised perspective. By 1580 Seville,
with more than 130,000 inhabitants, was the largest city of
Spain. It has a long, prominent history from Roman, Islamic, and
medieval times. Its wealth and prestige grew rapidly toward the
end of the fifteenth century due to Columbus’s explorations and
Spanish colonization of America. In 1503, the House of Trade, la
Casa de Contratación
was founded in the city, assuring Seville’s
control over commerce and trade with America. Seville is the
location of the important General Archive of the Indies, which
contains the administrative papers of Spain’s overseas colonies.
(Geography and Map Division)


And it is the emigrants to America from this geographically
unified but culturally very diverse Iberian Peninsula who, in the
fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, carried with them their
experiences, culture, and expectations of what they could
accomplish to America. In these new surroundings they were
forced to adjust to a context quite different from that of Spain
and Portugal. Ibero-American societies began to take shape in
part as a result of the adaptations that Iberian emigrants made
to the new situation they found. The indigenous peoples, with
whom they mingled, constituted yet another crucial factor in the
equation that produced American societies. The Library of
Congress’s extensive Luso-Hispanic collections provide ample
information about the centuries of human existence on the Iberian
Peninsula and its influences throughout the world.

The Spanish and Portuguese monarchies reached the zenith of
their power during the time when printing was revolutionizing the
consciousness of the Western world. Both Spain and Portugal had
extended the frontiers of European control outside Europe,
particularly by spreading the use of printing. The emerging art
of printing chronicles the period of Iberia’s greatest power and
wealth; it illustrates how the world and its European rivals felt
Iberia’s impact.

The manuscript and book catalogs of the Biblioteca Nacional,
Madrid, are available in the Library of Congress, such as Antonio
Paz y Melía’s Papeles de Inquisición…(1947) and, notably, the
colossal Inventario General de Manuscritos, which has been
appearing since 1933. The more than 4,800-microfiche Catálogo
general de libros impresos
, in the Microform Reading Room,
provides a comprehensive record of authors and works in Spain’s
Biblioteca Nacional up to 1987. Also present are such research
tools as Francisco Sintes Obrador’s Archivos y bibliotecas de
España
(1953) and J. E. Martínez Ferrando’s Tres archivos de
España
(1950), a guide to the Archives of the Corona de Aragón,
Simancas, and Indias.


Portolan Chart of the Mediterranean World. Mateo
Prunes
[Majorca] 1559. Vellum
. A cartographic revolution occurred in the
Mediterranean world in the thirteenth century with the emergence
of a new type of chart, the portolan chart. This coincided with
the surge in seafaring activity and Atlantic exploration which
began before the end of that century. This colorful one-of-a-kind portolan chart was drawn on
vellum in 1559. Mapmaker Mateus
Prunes (1532-1594) was a leading member of a family of Majorcan
cartographers who lived and worked on that island from the early
sixteenth to the late seventeenth centuries. The chart depicts
the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Sea, part of the Red Sea, the
Atlantic coast of Africa from Cape Spartel to Senegal, and the
European coast to northern Scandinavia. Both real and mythical
islands appear in the northwest. The real ones include Fixlanda
(Iceland) and Isola Verde (probably Greenland). Among the
mythical islands are Isola de Brazil and Isola de Maydi, the
latter possibly a name of Arabic origin that first appeared on
the 1325 chart by Angelino Dalorto. (Vellum Chart Collection,

The work of prime concern for the study of Spain is the Real
Academia de la Historia’s famed 112-volume Colección de
documentos inéditos para la historia de España
(1842-1895), along
with its six-volume Colección de documentos para la historia de
España y sus Indias
(1928-1934), Documentos inéditos para la
historia de España
(1936-1957), and the forty-seven-volume
Memorial histórico español: colección de documentos,
opúsculos y
antigüedades
(1851-1916, 1947-). These collections reproduce
documents that are now either lost, in private hands, in the
archive at Simancas, or original manuscripts of several
chroniclers.

Southern Africa, Mozambique to Cape of Good Hope. In
João
Teixeira. Taboas geraes de toda a nevegação divididas e emedades
por Dom Ieronimo de Attayde. Manuscript atlas, 1630.
The
Portuguese cartographer João Teixeira produced a rich collection
of maps of places throughout the world in the early seventeenth
century, including areas in Africa which were some of the very
first Portuguese colonies. His unique 1630 manuscript atlas is in
the Library of Congress. Little is known about Teixeira, except
what can be deduced from his works. He was appointed
cartographer of the Armazéns da Casa de Guiné e India in 1602.
Since the Spanish and Portuguese crowns were officially united in
1580, Teixeira’s maps were known to various Spanish explorers.
Teixeira served as Cosmographer-major briefly in his career, only
signing as such in his atlases of 1648. No work of his is
recorded after 1649. This map of southern Africa illustrated
“Mountains of Gold,” “Mines of Copper,” “Land of Good People,”
“Land of Hunger,” and “Barren Land,” in the interior of southern
Africa and, along the coast, shipwrecks containing “medallions of
gold.” The atlas came into the hands of Spanish authorities in
the late seventeenth century. In a letter to Charles II (1661-1700), Francisco de Seixas y Lovera
(1650-1705/6) states that he
acquired the Teixeira atlas from the Portuguese Royal Library and
Archives using intelligence and money.

Another significant collection, the PORTUGUESE MANUSCRIPTS
COLLECTION, purchased in 1927 and 1929, is part of a group of
nearly 28,500 items–manuscripts and printed works related to
Portuguese history and literature–14,000 items of which are in
Portuguese. Like the book and pamphlet portions of the
collection, the majority of the manuscripts, which span a period
of more than five hundred years, are from the private libraries
of the Conde de Olivais e Penha Longa and Antonio Augusto de
Carvalho Monteiro.

Substantial items are concerned with Sebastianism, the
belief that King Sebastian, killed in North Africa in 1578, would
return to restore Portugal to its former greatness; Luis de
Camões (1524-1580), author of Portugal’s epic poem Os Lusíadas;
the military orders of knighthood; general historical works,
histories of the Portuguese sovereigns, letters of seventeenth-century diplomatic figures, and a
volume containing 210 letters
(1774-1779) of Manoel de Cunha Menezes, captain general of
Pernambuco and Bahia.

The PORTUGUESE PAMPHLETS COLLECTION 1610-1921, on seventy-five reels of
microfilm in the Microform Reading Room, was
collected primarily by Antonio Augusto de Carvalho Monteiro
(1850-1920). It reflects the contemporary interests of
nineteenth-century Portugal, including items on Camões, the
Marques de Pombal, Brazil, dynastic struggles, voyages of
discovery, political tracts, criticism of the monarchy and other
officials, literary and intellectual polemics, eulogies, sermons,
prose and poetry by Leite de Vasconcellos, and historical essays
by Sousa Viterbo and Gabriel Pereira, as well as writings on
agriculture, science, and music.

The LESSING J. ROSENWALD COLLECTION of illustrated
books from the fifteenth through the twentieth centuries, in the
Rare Book and Special Collections Division, contains numerous
treasures of the Luso-Hispanic world. Along with the first book
printed in the Philippines, Doctrina Christiana, en lengua
española y tagala
(1593), in this extraordinary collection are
found a remarkable 1524 edition of Praeclara Ferdinadi Cortesii
de Nova maris Oceani Hyspania narratio
–Hernando Cortés’s 1520
letter about Mexico to Charles V of Spain–, 1479 and 1484

The VELLUM CHART COLLECTION, in the Geography and Map
Division, contains twenty-seven rare nautical charts and six
atlases on vellum from several major early schools of chart
making, particularly from Spanish and Italian groups. With
examples ranging from an anonymous fourteenth-century chart of
the eastern Mediterranean and the Black Seas to the eighteenth-
and early nineteenth-century hydrographic charts depicting
portions of the Caribbean Sea from the Royal Naval School at
Cádiz, the collection provides over four centuries of examples
for the study of the development of navigational charts. The
1559 manuscript chart on vellum of the Mediterranean, Atlantic,
and North Sea coastlines drawn by the Mallorcan Mateo Prunes and
Battista Agnese’s 1544 vellum atlas of the world–with
particularly early representations of the Western Hemisphere and
a chart depicting Magellan’s circumnavigation of the globe in
1519-1522 and strikingly detailed information on the
Mediterranean world–are vivid examples of the collection’s
stunning quality.

Additional cartographic works from throughout the period of
Hispanic and Portuguese expansion can be found in the Geography
and Map Division. Extensive examples of Portuguese colonial maps
make the Library of Congress one of the largest centers for
cartographic research on that empire. Among outstanding works
are Armando Cortesão’s six-volume Portugaliae monumenta
cartographica
, maps published by the Agencia Geral do Ultramar,
such as the Carta da Colônia da Guiné Portuguesa (1889), the
Carta da Africa meridional portuguesa (1886), the Carta de
Angola, contendo indicações de produção e salubridade

(1885), and
the unique 1630 manuscript atlas, Taboas geraes de toda a
navegação divididas e emendadas por Dom Ieronimo de Attayde
by
João Teixeira, cosmographer to the King of Portugal, which
contains charts of Brazil, Africa, Southeast
Asia, the Indian Ocean, the Americas, Europe, and the
Mediterranean region. Teixeira’s monumental work, which
parallels Portuguese overseas efforts in the sixteenth and first
half of the seventeenth centuries, was a major source of
geographical information in the ongoing international rivalry
between Portugal and Spain that had accelerated from the late
fifteenth century. The provenance of the atlas is alone an
interesting story. Spaniard Francisco de Seixas y Lovera (1650-1705/6), a Mexican viceroy,
acquired the manuscript atlas from
the Portuguese Royal Library and Archives “using intelligence and
money.” He presented this extremely valuable purchase to Spain’s
King Charles II (1661-1700) so that “his Majesty [could] use it
in the Congresses against Portugal.”


T-O Map. In Saint Isidorus [Bishop of Seville].
Etymologiarum sive originum libri XX. Augsburg, Gunther Zainer,
1472.
The T-O map shown here represents one of the earliest
examples of medieval mappae mundi. Originally drawn between 622
and 633 as an illustration for Isidore’s Etymologiarum…, the
most famous of his thirty encyclopedias and historical works,
this map has the distinction of being the first printed world
map, appearing in 1472 in an incunabula volume housed in the Rare
Book and Special Collections Division. Dividing the world into
the three known continents (Europe, Africa, Asia), this scheme
used the T to represent, horizontally, the Don and the Nile (or
possibly the Red Sea), the traditional separation of Europe and
Africa from Asia, and vertically, the Mediterranean Sea, giving
the easterly orientation. The T also represented the tau cross,
a mystical Christian symbol placing Jerusalem, their center of
the world, at the intersection of the horizontal and vertical
section. The O encircling the T portrayed the common ancient and
medieval idea of a world surrounded by water. In the transitional
period before Columbus’s first voyage, it was not unusual to find
all types of mappae mundi coexisting with the more realistic and
practical portolan chart and the scientific work of Ptolemy.

The OTTO VOLLBEHR COLLECTION of incunabula in the Rare Book
and Special Collections Division and in the Law Library contains
important early printed works, including the 1494 Basel edition
of Columbus’s 1493 letter of discovery and extremely rare
imprints of Spanish legal interest, such as, Leyes del quaderno
nuevo de las rentas delas alcavalas
(Burgos, 1491), Leyes del
Estilo
(Burgos, 1498), and Repertorium de pravitate haereticorum
(Valencia, 1494). The Library recently acquired another
rare example of fifteenth-century printing, a work commissioned
by King John II of Portugal, Vasco Fernandes de Lucena’s Velasci
Ferdinandi utriusique iuris consulti…ad Innocentium, viii.
pontificem maximum de obedientia Oratio
(Rome, 1488). That early
account of Portuguese explorations and discoveries was presented
to Pope Innocent VIII, thus informing the pontiff of the
commencement of the European age of discovery. As the Library’s
100,000,001st item, that invaluable treasure, in the Rare Book
and Special Collections Division, was acquired through a gift
from Madison Council member John E. Velde, Jr.

For more than eight centuries, Sephardic Jews have spoken
and written Spanish, even following their 1492 expulsion from
Spain. The written form of their Ladino language uses Hebrew
characters. One of the many interesting Luso-Hispanic
collections in the library is a group of some six hundred Ladino
volumes in the Hebraic Section of the African and Middle Eastern
Division. Henry V. Besso’s bibliography, Ladino Books in the
Library of Congress
(1963), lists nearly three hundred titles,
the earliest of which is eleventh-century Bahya Ben Joseph Ibn
Pakuda’s Sefer Jovot ha-Levavot (El dover de los corasones),
printed in Constantinople in 1550.

The concordances of texts by eleventh-century Spanish King
Alfonso X from libraries in Paris, El Escorial, Madrid, the
Vatican, and the British Library are found on 112 microfiches in
the Microform Reading Room. That collection contains an early
history of Spain, and works on astrology, games, and other
topics. The Rare Book and Special Collections Division’s copy of
Isidore of Seville’s Etymologiarum sive originum libri XX (1472)
contains the first printed map, the seventh-century Spanish
bishop’s famous T-O world map.

The Archivo Biográfico de España, Portugal e
Iberoamérica
,
also in the Library’s Microform Reading Room, provides some two
hundred thousand biographical entries on well-known Hispanic and
Portuguese figures from the Roman period to the beginning of the
twentieth century. The collection, on 1,143 microfiches, was
compiled from 700 volumes of biographical references published
between the seventeenth and the twentieth centuries. That rich
biographical source is complemented by Alberto and Arturo García
Carraffa’s eighty-eight-folio Enciclopedia heráldica-genealógica
de apellidos españoles y americanos
(1919-1963) in the Library’s
general books collection. The Family History Library, a 2,020-microfiche catalog
(now also on
CD-ROM in the Local History and
Genealogy Reading Room), identifies the thousands of reels of
microfilm of governmental and church records from the sixteenth
to the twentieth centuries on the Luso-Hispanic world located in
the Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-Day Saints in Salt Lake City, Utah.


Contador maior i texzorero. In Felipe Guamám
Poma de Ayala.
Nueva corónica y buen gobierno [facsimile of early seventeenth-
century manuscript]. Paris, 1936.
To keep an account of the
numbers of men, cattle, and goods, the Inca of the Andean region
employed quipucamayoc, experts who used a decimal system to
collect data of interest to the state; the data were maintained
on stringed devices called quipus. Guamán Poma de Ayala
illustrates such a civil servant. Each expert passed on his
information to his superior, who in turn did the same, until
finally all the information came together in Cuzco. Poma de
Ayala, a chronicler of the Inca, was a descendant of Túpac Inca
Yupanqui, one of the Inca rulers. His manuscript, which was not
uncovered until 1908 and only reproduced in a limited edition in
1936, was completed in 1587, when it was presented to the King of
Spain. The work provides valuable ethnographic and social
information about the Incan society and its relations, after
conquest, with the Spanish administration. (General Books

Roman, customary, and Visigothic law, the influence of the
Moors, and fueros provide the strands from which the legal mosaic
of Spain and Portugal has been woven, and the Law Library holds
noteworthy examples among its 1,500 rare book volumes. The
thirteenth- century manuscript Fuero Juzgo, on vellum, is the
Library of Congress’s earliest work on Visigothic law. The
Library also houses the milestones of the Spanish legal process,
including the circa 1265 Siete Partidas (in a rare 1491 Seville
printing), the 1310 Leyes de Estiló (in 1502 and 1540 Salamanca
printings), the Ordenanças reales de Castilla (in 1566 and 1574
Salamanca editions), the 1505 Leyes de Toro (in a 1531 printing
and 1527 and 1544 glosses), Fuero Real (in a 1501 Saragossa
printing), and the official Recopilación de las leyes destos
reynos hechos por mandado de la magestad catholica del Rey don
Philippe segundo
(in the first edition of 1567, and in 1571,
1581, 1640, and 1723 editions). All of these works are
complemented by complete holdings of significant legal analyses.
The Law of the Indies, which codified royal orders for Spain’s
colonies, issued by Castile and Aragón, begins the Library’s
comprehensive holdings of Spanish colonial legislation.

Along with comprehensive coverage of legislation existing at
the national level, the Law Library holdings include the official
gazettes of different regions and the fueros of Cataluña, País
Vasco, Galicia, Aragón, Las Canarias, País Valenciano, Andalucia,
Baleares, Extremadura, Castilla y Léon, Murcia, and Castilla La
Mancha. Also found are modern civil, penal, criminal, and
commercial codes which began to appear in Spain after 1880. That
collection supports broad study of legislation, court reports,
general works, legal education, jurisprudence and philosophy of
law, legal history, civil law, commercial law, civil procedure,
criminal law, constitutional law, administrative law, and labor
legislation.

This collection contains historical landmarks of Portuguese
jurisprudence, an excellent collection of colonial legislation,
and comprehensive holdings of contemporary legislation issued at
the national level. Within the Law Library collection are
examples of such legal monuments as the Treaty of Tordesillas
(1494) through which Spain and Portugal divided the non-Christian
world. Present, too, are laws passed by Philip II of Spain in
his role as Philip I of Portugal during the Spanish captivity
(1580 to 1640). Royal decrees are here accompanied by all of the
country’s constitutions. These include the liberal constitution
of 1822 and the Salazar-influenced constitution of 1933.


Descripción de las Yndias Ocidentalis [printed
map]. In
Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas. Description des Indes
Occidentales. Amsterdam: M. Colin, 1622.
This map describes the
extent of Spanish possessions in America. The 1494 lines of
demarcation, agreed upon by Spain and Portugal as a result of the
Treaty of Tordesillas, divide America from Europe on the east and
from Asia on the west. This map was part of the multivolume
historical work by Herrera, Spain’s official historian, Historia
general de los hechos de los castellanos en las islas y tierra
firme del mar océano
(1601-1615). The work relates events of
discovery, pacification, and settlement by Spaniards in America
between 1492 and 1555. He availed himself of all the documents
in the possession of the crown and the Council of the Indies,
using them so extensively that for almost two centuries his work
constituted an easy means of access to numerous unpublished
documents and manuscripts. Copies of the Historia general are
located in the Library’s Rare Book and Special Collections
Division. (Vault Map Collection, Geography and Map Division)


For Portuguese colonial legislation, the Law Library has the Political, Civil and Criminal
Statute
of the Natives of Guinea, Angola and Mozambique
(1929) and the revised Statute of
the
Portuguese Natives of the Provinces of Guinea, Angola and Mozambique
(1954). Among
its
holdings of labor legislation are the Regulations on Native Labour (1911) and
General
Regulations on Native Labour in the Portuguese Colonies
(1914). In the collection with
the
official gazette are the Boletin Geral das Colnias and the Boletin Geral do
Ultramar
and primary
sources encompassing Portuguese legal publications issued during the twentieth century colonial
period including the Nova Legislao Ultramarina (1953-1969), Legislao
mandada aplicar ao
Ultramar Portugus
(1926-1963, 1965-1966), and Legislao Portuguesa (1909-1931).

For the study of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), the Motion Picture, Broadcasting,
and Recorded Sound Division has a collection of 16-mm prints of newsreels and documentaries,
constituting part of an extensive collection of German films, produced from 1933 to 1945.
Among documentaries held about the Spanish Civil War are Alkazar
(German-language version,
1939), Bethune (Canada, 1964), Between the Wars, no. 12: The Spanish Civil
War
(U.S., 1978),
Los Canadienses (Canada, 1976), Deutsche Freiwillige in Spanien

(U.S., 1960). The Manuscript Division has papers of the pool of British insurance companies
involved in providing coverage for businesses in civil war-torn Spain and copies of the minutes of
the Junta de defensa de Madrid of General Jos Miaja Menant, the Republic’s commander in the
1936 defense of Madrid, who coined the term “fifth column.” The Microform Reading Room’s
holdings of the Gibbs Archives consists of the nineteenth-
and twentieth-century business records of a British firm with
substantial interests in Spain. A collection of related
materials is found in the GARY YANKER POSTER COLLECTION and in
Lot 3929 in the photographic collection of the Prints and
Photographs Division, as well as in books and periodicals in the
general books collections of the Library of Congress.

The bitter conflict between republican and
nationalist forces during the first year of Spain’s Civil War
(1936-1939) is reflected in this poster. It marked the first
anniversary of the date on which nationalist leader General
Francisco Franco launched his military campaign against the
Spanish Republic. The poster appeals to the indignation of the
republican side toward foreign and foreign-backed aggressors. It
had been hoped that within the year the Franco-led nationalists
would be defeated. (Poster Collection, Prints and Photographs

Geography in Spain

1The Spanish accept that a knowledge of geography is useful for society and that therefore it should be taught to the new generations. Moreover, whenever a debate arises on the educational shortcomings in primary and secondary schools and how these could be compensated, it is often said that children and young adults should receive more extensive and better geographical education. In short, geography is considered in a positive light and there is no doubt that knowledge of the subject should form part of the average individual’s education.

2However, such a positive outlook does not coincide with the increasingly lower level of geographical content in primary and secondary schools, where geography is consistently subordinate to history. Furthermore, the presence of geography in the school curricula is seriously lacking in material and human resources and, even worse, is traditionally included in subjects with names that mask its identity, such as Environmental Knowledge, Social Sciences, etc. Such a poor situation not only restricts and impoverishes the geographical message, but also conditions the future of geography at the higher education and University level. Naturally, this situation does nothing to promote recognition of its contributions or public image.

3Herein lies the root of geography’s difficulty in its quest to gain sufficient exposure, which should begin with the acknowledgement of its identity as a scientific discipline and the acceptance of its potential social value. Besides geography’s description of basic physical land elements, such as rivers, coasts, mountains, towns, etc., its analytical, interpreting and propositive capacities are largely unknown. Neither modern foci and paradigms nor the efficient methodological tools which are used in geography today are known or socially valued by sectors ranging from the media to public administrations. In short, the general public does not understand or attach sufficient importance to the whys and wherefores of work carried out by geographers.

4Unfortunately, the general conception of geography continues to be one based on enumeration which, at most, can locate the basic features of the Earth’s surface. Consequently, the main task facing the community of geographers is that of acquiring public acknowledgement and recognition of its work. In this sense, it is fundamental to convey a clear message regarding which social challenges geography can provide answers to, in order to both understand and solve them on the same scale on which they arise.

5These goals can be found extensively in the programmes of all geographical organisations in Spain. Progress has been made but the results are insufficient. The problem indubitably lies in the difficulty of geographers to communicate well, but also in the lack of sensitivity shown by the mass media, who seem to have little interest in promoting geography as a socially-committed and technologically-advanced discipline : this could in part be due to the survival of certain topics inherited from a school geography of the past. Nor have the issues raised by geographical organisations had much impact with the public administrations with decision-making capacities in educational organisation on preventing the gradual disappearance of geographical content in the school curriculum each time it is restructured.

6Although the battle to establish geography’s scientific identity and social value has not yet been won in Spain, the way is gradually being paved towards the acknowledgement of geography’s contribution to solving problems of social concern. Clear proof of this can be seen in the presence of geographers in local and autonomous community administrations and in their active participation in programmes and projects of a territorial nature, such as land and town planning, environmental policy, local development, tourism, etc. : professional activity in such themes depends on the growing presence of geographers and, moreover, at a decision-making level. There are, however, two important barriers to be overcome before the professional competence of geographers in applied tasks is fully accepted : the opposition of other professionals, such as architects and engineers, above all, who have traditionally performed these tasks and have better practical training, and the still inadequate instrumental training of geographers.

7The specific relevance of geography in the Spanish education system changed quantitatively and qualitatively throughout the 20th century. During the last few years, the number of weekly school hours dedicated to the subject has decreased, even though the traditional focus on rote-learning has given way to an approach based on reasoning and the handling of various sources of information. In this way, the idea is to disseminate practical and informed geographical knowledge and concepts that may enable students to analyse spatial reality, even though the scientific concepts are not always fully understood and assimilated. At the same time, there is growing concern regarding the incorporation of procedural aspects in the teaching of geography (Zárate, 1996). Progress made in working methodology and approaches is restricted by the inadequate distribution of geographical content throughout the school system (Gil, 1981, p. 24).

8The Ley de Ordenación General del Sistema Educativo (LOGSE) (School System General Planning Act), passed in 1990, has extended the compulsory school period over two more years (from 14 to 16 years of age), which results in a two-year delay in the entry of young people in the job market. In 2002, the Ley Orgánica sobre la Calidad de la Enseñanza (LOCE) (Teaching Quality Act) emphasised the participation of Information and Communication Tech­nology in schools (Lázaro, 2003) as well as the importance of foreign language training. This act has also identified the need to pay individual attention to students’ previous learning as well as re-introducing the possibility of repeating the school year in certain circumstances. Table 1 illustrates how Geography appears within the new legal framework.

9With respect to the various school stages, Kindergarten continues to be an educational stage that depends on the parents’ will to take their children to school. Its main objectives are living together, observing and exploring Nature and social and family environments. At Primary School, geographical training is devoted to a general learning of space realities, with specific reference made to Spain and the E. U. At the Compulsory Lower Secondary School (E.S.O.), spatial, environmental and land studies on different scales appear in school geography studies. These are of a more general character during the first two years, during which its contents are shared with history, as the third year course is totally dedicated to geography. Maintaining a specific course in this stage has constituted a guarantee of survival for geography, even though the content level is much lower than that taught at the Upper Secondary school. This educational stage presents the highest levels of student failure and teacher frustration ; teacher re-staffing movements and teacher training research bodies collaborate in an attempt to analyse and find solutions to this general state of dissatisfaction.

10Geography courses were always taught at the Spanish Non-compulsory Upper Secondary School (Bachillerato) during the second half of the 20th century, and even though nowadays all branches of geography can be taken as optional courses, it is only a compulsory subject within Humanities & Social Sciences. Its goals are : understanding space organisation, linking environment and society, understanding objective location of natural resources in order to learn to use them in a responsible and intelligent manner. The course refers basically to Spain, its relations with Europe and its insertion in the world system (Souto, 1998). The content of geography courses has recently been extended, an aspect that was not welcomed by the teachers who are obliged to teach a wide-ranging programme to students who are usually not well-acquainted with the subject.

11Geography teaching in school is faced with the following challenges :
With respect to the official curriculum, the presence of geography has increased over the last few years, although there is no continuity in the required geographical level between the compulsory secondary school (E.S.O.) and the non-compulsory secondary school. In the geography course taught in the second year of non-compulsory secondary school, students need to know and master many procedures and techniques related to very different spatial scales.

12With respect to the teachers, the study programme for the above-mentioned course is evidently too extensive and teachers find it very difficult to cover it in its entirety, given that compulsory secondary school students have insufficient knowledge of geography and that most geography teachers do not have the required qualifications in the subject. This is due to the fact that the current structure of university studies qualified to teach this geography course is compartmentalised into specialities, resulting in the possibility that a teacher who has never taken a single geography course at university is obliged to teach it, despite the high level of knowledge it requires.

13With regard to the students, especially those at the compulsory secondary school (E.S.O.), it should be emphasised that the students’ age (14-16 years), their lack of motivation and the compulsory nature of the course, result in rejection by some students who already want to start working. Therefore, teachers ought to be highly specialized both in content and teaching techniques. There is a need to extend the specificity of geography to every school stage and to adequately train teachers to teach any kind of student, regardless of age or educational stage (Arroyo and Pérez, 1995).

14Therefore, teacher training is a matter of great significance. Primary school and kindergarten teacher training became a college Bachelor’s degree in the 1970s (Herrero, 2000, p. 39). However, teacher training does not always correspond to the appropriate scientific geographical education, since geography is taught within the wider field of the social sciences. At this school level, while physical education, foreign languages or music are taught by specialised teachers, it is considered that any teacher can teach geography, even if he/she has only taken a few geography credits/courses in college.

15Much more complex is the case of the secondary school geography teacher ; he/she is a holder of a Master’s degree in Geography, educated at a geography university department or school, but whose teacher training comes from specific courses given, since 1970, by the Institutos de Ciencias de la Educación (I. C.E.). These specific courses consist in two parts : a theoretical section and teaching experience carried out in a secondary school. The Certificado de Aptitud Pedagógica (CAP) (Teaching Competence Certificate) qualification obtained at the end of the course is required to teach any subject. In the future, the recently passed LOCE Act will establish a specific qualification in teacher training, by thereby closing the present gap between scientific instruction and teacher training for secondary school teachers. There are also many other teacher training courses, workshops, seminars, etc., organized by private and public entities, but with diverse and varied contents and approaches.

16The university degree in geography was created in the 1990s ; until that moment, the devotion of university geography professors guaranteed the quality of this university discipline. It should be taken into account that the first university geography course (Regional Geography) was created in 1901 at the Philosophy and Humanities School at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid, and that it took almost 90 years until the Master’s Degree in Geography (Licenciatura) was created. The introduction of this degree leads to the matching of Spanish university geography teaching to European models both in length of studies and in the definition of a curriculum specialising in geography separated from history. The two cycles, however, are still maintained.

17In the present study programme, the Ministry of Education reserves the competence to set basic compulsory courses (or trunk courses) for every Spanish university that offers the geography degree. A detailed analysis of the courses reveals the clear decision to train professional geographers. In other words, the old conception of training people to teach at university or secondary schools is replaced by a new vision more in keeping with social needs, the aspirations of geography students and the general feeling of the staff that teach the subject. Together with other traditional courses such as Physical Geography, Human Geography or Geography of Spain or Europe, there are some courses related to the new role played by the professional geographer in our society. Thus, trunk courses are Geographical Technologies (12 credits), in the first cycle, and Land Planning, Applied Physical Geography and Applied Human Geography (12 credits each) in the second cycle (Alvargonzález, 2001). This new approach was very appropriate, as the political power share among the central government and the autonomous communities had just been completed, which led to most of the land-related competencies being transferred to the regional governments.

18Apart from these basic subject matters, each university was able to define its own curricula through the inclusion of the so-called compulsory and optional courses. The present study programme excludes the Bachelor’s degree in Geography (the Diplomatura degree) in the first cycle, which many geography departments considered a good career opening and one that would meet market demands (for instance, with qualified mapping technicians) as well as specialities in the second cycle. Therefore, the new study programme only approved the Master’s degree in Geography, within which specialization was only possible through the optional subjects offered by each department to be freely chosen by the students, although these are not officially recognised in their academic records.

19The creation of new degrees according to the University Studies Reform Act of 1983 made possible the inclusion of geography courses (even some trunk courses) in the new curricula ; therefore, geography departments are able to offer some new qualifications in such a Master’s degree as Environmental Sciences and Social and Cultural Anthropology or in the Bachelor’s degree in Tourism.

20It seemed that the Master’s degree in Geography would develop and create new professionals that could compete in the labour market ; however, the Spanish Ministry of Education imposed a strict condition in the approval of new study programmes which restricted all the new possibilities : the blocking of staff. This meant that only the existing human resources were provided, which indubitably affected the curriculum designed by each department and forced the existing professors to adjust to the new curriculum.

21In any case, there is a wide range of possibilities as many universities offer the Master’s degree in Geography. For the future, the reforms set by the Bologna agreements will cause the curricula to become more streamlined as Spanish and other European universities will see that student capture becomes increasingly difficult.

22As this paper is being written (November 2003), a new regulation for post-graduate studies is on the verge of being approved, based on the Bologna Declaration on “European Space for Higher Education, (ESHE)”, and legally supported by the new University Act (L.O.U.) dated December 2001. Until the University Studies Reform Act of 1983, the first Democratic one, the purpose of the third cycle was to train graduate students to complete their PhD dissertation ; once they had successfully obtained their post-graduate degree, they had two different career possibilities : teaching at university or research at the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (C.S.I.C.) (Scientific Research High Council). Since 1983, all Spanish universities have become autonomous and have a certain amount of freedom in the organization of their graduate studies according to the following double approach :

  1. PhD programmes : The students’ goal is to be granted the doctorate ; therefore, they must prove their researching competence by taking high-level scientific courses (20 credits) and carrying out conducted research (12 credits). In any case, the final objective is to produce a PhD thesis and to be granted a doctorate.

  2. Master’s programmes. Students must take specialized courses in order to become qualified for applied work in the Public Administration sector, in a private company or in a consultant agency. There are different types of professional post-graduate qualifications (Master, Magister, Experto, Especialista), according to the credit load and the qualification required. All must conclude in an applied work project.

23Since 1985, most Spanish universities have doctorate studies that offer the grade of Doctor in Geography ; on some occasions, the same department offers several programmes. Mostly, these programmes are related to a certain speciality located in the same geographical area of the university or to some speciality implemented in the department. Moreover, within these doctorate programmes there appear increasingly more methodological and technical courses (mapping, GIS, etc.), while applied land planning research is gaining importance. Recently, there is a tendency for departments to offer a single doctorate programme in which the three areas of geographical knowledge (Physical Geography, Human Geography and Regional Geography) are balanced, although some programmes follow a specialized line such as physical environment, land planning, innovation techniques, etc. (Rodríguez-Martínez, 1995-96, p. 146). The information available on 2003-2004 doctorate programmes shows that in 34 Spanish universities geography is present in 53 doctorate programmes, 25 of them organized by Geography departments ; the subject-matter range is very wide : from geographical thought to land planning ; geography’s environmental and landscape perspective is well represented as well as other recent subjects such as heritage or land economic development.

24The second professional approach is indubitably much more heterogeneous as it is based on the autonomy of each university. Thus, many Spanish universities issue qualifications for the professional activity of degree-holders, and geography is very well represented at this level. The norm is for geography to share cross-section third-cycle programmes with other disciplines, such as environment, land planning, local development or tourism. There are cases where geography departments direct professional post-graduate teaching and engage professors from other disciplines. According to the information available for 2003-2004, the Spanish public universities teach at least 36 professional post-graduate programmes at different levels. The subject-matter is varied as well, although there is a prevalence of instrumental issues (GIS, mapping, remote-sensing) and those regarding the professionalism of geographers in land and urban analysis, management and planning. Obviously, these qualifications have a short period of life because, although they depend on the university’s decision to offer them and on their demand, their cost and organisation requirements usually do not make them feasible.

25Geographers are also actively contributing to research university centres or institutes that in many cases are multidisciplinary. Such is the case of the Instituto Cabanilles de Altos Estudios Turísticos (Cabanilles Institute of Advanced Tourism Studies), ruled by the Valencian universities and specializing in Tourism research, or the Centro de Cooperación y Desarrollo Territorial (Centre for Cooperation and Land Development), linked to the University of Oviedo (Asturias) and oriented towards land economic development.

26At present, Internet is the means of communication par excellence. The Web offers great opportunities for the diffusion of geography and Spanish geographical bodies have created and maintain their own web pages. Table 2 indicates the addresses of some institutions referred to in the text.

27Most university geography departments have their own web page and their URL addresses are available through campusred. net (it is necessary to search for degree names) or through the corresponding link on the web page of the Asociación de Geógrafos Españoles (AGE) (Association of Spanish Geographers) : (http://www.ieg.csic.es/​ age/enlaces/dep_espana.htm). They differ in geographical content, quality and quantity and some of them are a clear interactive on-line invitation to the visitor, while in other cases the web page is just an introduction to the department in question.

28Geographical journals have also arrived on the Internet ; some dependent on geography departments and others promoted by various geographical bodies. Some journals are complete and fully downloadable and in other cases only the table of contents is available. Certain journals cannot be obtained in hard copy but can only be consulted on the Web (table 3).

29Spanish state and autonomous community public bodies are posting increasingly more materials on the Internet, and some of these are very useful in geography teaching and research. For instance, the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture offers maps and aerial images on its website, and the Instituto Nacional de Estadística (INE) (State Statistics Body) as well as other related regional bodies provide statistics at different scales in relation to various subjects. There are also other educational portals from which interesting geography teaching information can be accessed : the most important are the Ministry of Education’s Centro Nacional de Información y Comunicación Educativa (National Centre for Educational Information and Communication) (http://www.cnice.mecd.es), and the Educared, sponsored by the Telefónica Foundation (http://www.educared.net). On the Web there are also free teaching materials for different disciplines and levels (geography included) available at http://www.xtec.es/​recursos/​clic/​.

30All these Internet-based teaching resources are very useful for primary and secondary school teachers and students.

31The Spanish contribution to various European and international initiatives on the Web is also worth noting : HERODOT, for instance, emerged from the need to re-organise university curricula according to the Bologna agreements ; SchoolNet assumes the role of promoting school teaching via the Internet ; EUGEO joins European Union geographical societies ; while EUROGEO is formed by European geographical institutions interested in geography teaching in their respective countries.

32Another interesting aspect to be taken into consideration is the media attention given to the geographical dimension when it deals with certain subjects or reports on land-related news (e.g. local development or town planning) or natural disasters, wars, travels and explorations. The Spanish media is not sensitive to the space facet of the news and nor does it explicitly assess the role of geography or the professional contribution of geographers. There is, however, a wider usage of mapping and graphic representation techniques. On the other hand, the press has reported on some of the most relevant events of geographical societies, such as the creation of the Colegio de Geógrafos (Professional Association of Geograph­ers). It is the local press which is most interested in the work of geographers, regularly giving details on conferences and other geographical events taking place in the area.

33In the last two decades, because of the existence of the autonomous communities, geographers have increased their presence in professional activities beyond formalized teaching and research. Previously, geographers participated in applied works and we could mention well-known colleagues who actively took part in town and country planning as well as in their academic duties. However, apart from these well-known academic individuals, the “Philosophy and Humanities” or “History and Geography” degree-holder (areas where geography was located for decades) had very few possibilities to exercise a professional activity and this was almost always within a team led by other professionals, ultimately architects, and playing a secondary role (Valenzuela, 1981).

34However, in the autonomous community governments, it is relatively common to encounter geographers in political roles such as councillors, general directors or members of regional Parliaments. There is no doubt that these new functions have promoted the role of geographers in Spanish regional administration. In 1975, the creation of the AGE helped to diffuse the professional role of geographers and to enhance their social value. An important step in this direction was taken in the 1990s when the Master’s degree in Geography was created ; although even before this some regional professional geographers associations had worked hard to have their members’ work recognized. The final milestone set in this direction was the creation of the Colegio de Geógrafos, which required a specific act to be passed in Spanish Parliament (1999). The new Master’s degree in Geography and the informative and lobbying work of many colleagues before parliament members obtained the support needed.

35The Colegio de Geógrafos was launched in 2001 with more than 500 members. The fact that the members of the first Board of Directors had an average age of 40 years is clear proof that the new classes of geography degree-holders were entering the professional field. This generational replacement is another step in the right direction to place professional geographers on the same level as other professionals. The Colegio de Geógrafos works in autonomous bodies in Andalusia, Cantabria, Catalonia and the Valencia Community. The association reproduces the land-decentralized model in force in Spain. The Colegio’s main and primary object is to promote the social recognition of geographers and to transfer this recognition into applied working offers. It is true that Spanish society is still unaware of the role that geography can play and without this previous recognition it will be very difficult for geographers to reach decision-making positions relating to land or town planning or environmental matters.

36The main professional careers open nowadays to Spanish geographers depend on the autonomous community in which they live and work. Among those most worth mentioning are : mapping and Geographical Information Systems ; the planning and management of natural spaces ; environmental impact assessment ; risk prevention for Civil Protection ; town and country planning ; land bordering, etc. We must point out the active role played by Catalonian geographers in the making of Catalonia’s county and municipal maps. Our colleagues perform many different applied works such as editorial work, the production of textbooks, guides, atlases, etc. within publishing houses.

37In all these fields and in many others that are not described in this paper, geographers contribute specific training and understanding : their knowledge of the land and their capacity to integrate environmental, economic and social dimensions in space, and their ability to synthesise and to interpret. Moreover, their representation of the land is constantly updated using the most advanced techniques (e.g. G.I.S.), which will not only lead to an improvement in their work but also to their increased capacity to convey this knowledge to their clients and to society. There is, however, still much distance to cover until geographers have an ample and varied professional market, as there is strong competition from many other and stronger professional bodies, and geographers do not have enough support from the productive system nor from public administration. The Colegio de Geógrafos is aware of these difficulties and since May 2003 has included in its journals a “Geographical Good Practices Bank”, a useful tool that is intended to encourage full acceptance and which has been launched with one of the activities which geographers work on most : landscape and land planning. The objective is to diffuse projects, experiences, plans, public policies or studies that are innovative or that are of special interest to the different fields of applied geographical activities.

38The corporate organization of Spanish geographers has followed a long and winding road since the last decades of the 19th century. At present, the list of Spanish geographers contains over 3,600 names and it can be said that geography presents a corporate profile similar to those countries in our sphere but with a lesser influence on society and with less scientific and professional recognition.

39The venerable Geographical Societies still exist, with members from very different disciplines and occupations (secondary school teachers, cartographers, geography engineers, economists, historians, military and, of course, geographers). Therefore, their interests do not always agree with those of other geographical bodies. As they are the older organizations, they count on greater social recognition and perform an important role in the divulgation of geography through their conferences, publications, travels, etc.

40The Real Sociedad Geográfica (Royal Geographical Society) was founded in 1876 as the Geographical Society of Madrid and was honoured with the title of “Royal” in 1901. It has around 500 members and publishes one of the oldest geographical journals in Spanish, Boletín de la Real Sociedad Geográfica. The creation of the Real Sociedad Geográfica, as that of many other similar bodies, was conditioned by the European colonial expansion of the second half of the 19th century (Rodríguez-Esteban, 1996). Much later, other geographical societies appeared in culturally and linguistically diverse regions such as Catalonia (Societat Catalana de Geografía), Galicia (Sociedade Galega de Xeografía) or the Basque Country (Sociedad Instituto Geográfico Vasco “Andrés de Urdaneta”-INGEBA). Of these, the oldest, most active and with the highest number of members is the Societat Catalana de Geografía, created in 1935 ; it has 1388 members and strong social and institutional support in Catalonia, and in 1991 it organized its 1er. Congrés Català de Geografía (1st Catalan Geography Congress). It organizes many activities and publications, with a periodical publication : Treballs de Geografía de la Societat Catalana de Geografia. The INGEBA also has its own periodical : Lurralde Investigación. All of these societies are well integrated in their regions ; they are acknowledged and supported both for their contribution towards a better understanding of land problems and for their work on behalf of their respective national identity.

41A new period was opened in 1975 when the AGE was created. It has at present 1000 members, most of them holding a Master’s degree in Geography. Therefore, it is the representative of academic geography and its main interest is in higher studies research and geography teaching. It is structured in working groups based on the main geographical research lines : the 13 working groups existing in 2003 hold scientific meetings where their members present their contributions (Valenzuela, 2000, pp. 363-365). Besides this, the AGE holds a congress every two years and publishes a quarterly journal (Boletín de la Asociación de Geógrafos Españoles) with an advisory board and referees that assess the scientific quality of papers. It also publishes monographic issues on subjects of particular interest.

42On the other hand, professional geographers have more recently completed their process of institutionalisation, which was strongly promoted by an Act passed in 1999 by Spanish Parliament upon the creation of the Colegio de Geógrafos. The Colegio was formally founded in 2001 and today (November 2003) there are 740 geographers registered. Thus ends the long run started in 1993 on the AGE’s initiative and supported by both the traditional geographical societies and the regional professional geographers’ associations (especially those of Catalonia and Andalusia) that appeared in the autonomous communities from 1980. The return to a democratic political system (1975), the first municipal elections (1979) and the implementation of the autonomic model provided for in the Spanish Constitution (1978) that granted to the “historical regions and nationalities” (Catalonia, Basque Country and Galicia) a wide self-government, constituted a strong boost for the consolidation of professional geographers in Spain. Throughout the 1980s, the autonomous communities were incorporated and they began to make decisions regarding a great number of subjects concerning the activities of professional geographer (town planning, environment, land planning, local development, etc.). The great expansion of professional geography during the last two decades is clearly related to the working opportunities derived from local and regional autonomous government ; sometimes geographers work for the municipalities or autonomous governments as contracted civil servants or technicians, or alternatively they work for other consultant agencies that are engaged by the same public bodies. Presently, the Colegio de Geógrafos is implementing a decentralized structure, whose demarcations correspond to the political regional units.

43Geography students and young geographers have also created their own organizations, which are obviously not as solid and whose scope is conditioned by fewer resources and the formative level of their members. The seats of these associations are created in the universities and are aggregated into larger groups (Federación de Asociaciones de Jóvenes Geógrafos – Federation of Young Geographers’ Associations). These associations, however, gain exposure via their meetings, workshops and working conferences, where they monitor the academic and professional development of geography from a critical and constructive viewpoint. These meetings are used to present proposals and suggestions to established geographical associations.

44We should also mention those non-geographical bodies and institutions that support academic geographers and provide working opportunities to professional geographers. We refer to the Instituto Geográfico Nacional (National Geograph­ical Institute), the national mapmaker, the Institut Cartografic de Catalunya (Cartographic Institute of Catalonia), the Catalonian mapmaker, the Instituto Nacional de Estadística(National Institute of Statistics), the national statistics body, or the Instituto de Estudios Turísticos (Institute of Tourism Studies), a specialized tourism research agency. Many of these entities have geographers on their staff, although in most cases they are a minority. Despite this, all these institutions are essential to geographical work which is why they have been included within the chapter devoted to “geographical societies”.

45In Spain, knowledge of geography is considered useful in cultural terms but its presence has been reduced at the basic levels of school education and, even worse, geography has lost its identity as a differentiated discipline.

46The last two decades of legal regulations have extended the term of compulsory education and have opened up higher studies to new generations, but they have not, however, resulted in the creation of new opportunities for geographical education.

47The creation of a Master’s degree in Geography (Licenciatura) does not guarantee a higher quality of geography teaching at the school level as school teaching is taken over by university degree holders in other subjects (mostly historians).

48University geography has broken away from the traditional bias towards teaching and leans in the direction of teaching designed to prepare professionals qualified to solve many different social demands. Therefore, there are no specialities within the Master’s degree in Geography study programmes. On the other hand, geography has been accepted as a valuable discipline for various new university degrees such as tourism, environment or anthropology.

49In the wait for new regulations following the Bologna Declaration, post-graduate and doctorate programmes are well represented in the geography departments, although existing geography doctorate degree-holders do not hold out much hope to become university professors or researchers. The professional post-graduate programmes are conditioned by departmental speciality and by the support of the surrounding area and of public administrations.

50Geographical professional activities, other than teaching, have only just been consolidated in Spain. From the 1980s on, there were many opportunities for the professional geographical practice as the decentralized political-administrative State model was implemented and the Master’s degree in Geography was created. The establishment of the Colegio Profesional de Geógrafos in 1999 led to full recognition of the professional geographer.

51Much older are the Geographical Societies, established more than 100 years ago that re-acquired influence in the country and in the autonomous communities from the 1970s on. The diffusion of initiatives and interests was reinforced in part when most of the geographical entities and societies were integrated in the Spanish Committee of the International Geographic Union (IGU).

In 1901 the Sociedad Geográfica de Madrid, created in 1876, was granted by King Alfonso XIII the rank of royal society, which implied the Crown’s High Protection and a yearly State’s budget support. Like many other 19th-century European geographical societies, the Spanish Real Sociedad Geográfica was born in close relation to the political power. In fact, the first President of the Sociedad Geográfica de Madrid, Mr. Fermín Caballero, was the Major of the city of Madrid as well as the first Geography Professor in the Universidad Central. Moreover, many other members were well-known politicians, among them several Prime Ministers and of the Borbonic Restoration Period (1875-1931), as well as all kind of public men and scientists (cartographers, engineers, historians, geologists, etc.) beside engineers or high-ranking career officers.

From its beginnings, the Real Sociedad Geográfica collaborated actively with European and American geographers ; thus its creation was linked to the attendance of Mr. Francisco Coello de Portugal, one of its most relevant founders, to the Geographical Congress held in Paris in 1875. Later on, the Real Sociedad Geográfica was one of the seven societies that incorporated the International Geographical Union in 1922, and its Board of Directors was appointed IGU’s Spanish Committee by a Government Order. In 1996 the Spanish Committee has been enlarged and has included the Asociación de Geógrafos Españoles (1975) and other State and Regional geographical bodies and entities (the Catalonian, Galician and Basque geographical societies). The Spanish Ministry of Public Works has always sponsored the Real Sociedad Geográfica through the Instituto Geográfico Nacional, a permanent member in its Board of Directors with other State specialised and related (Cartography, Geology, Oceano­graphy) bodies plus the Instituto de Economía y Geografía in the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (High Council for Scientific Research). The Society’s relations with other royal academies (such as the Real Academia de la Historia and the Real Academia de las Ciencias) are strong, and they have helped our activity for many years. In this sense, the Real Sociedad Geográfica joined as a founding member the European Society for Geography (EUGEO) in 1997.

Such a wide and large network of scientific and institutional relations has bloomed into an intense geographic diffusion in meetings, congresses, courses, conferences and publications, from the earliest Congreso Español de Geografia Colonial y Mercantil (the Spanish Congress on Colonial and Trading Geography) held in 1883 till 2002, when the Society’s Centennial was celebrated with a series of conferences entitled Un Mundo por descubrir en el Siglo XXI (A World to be discovered in the 21st Century). A quite different discovery that that the ones carried out by the young geographical societies in the 19th Century. In the early years since its creation in 1876, the Society took part in relevant discoveries and land penetration actions in the African Spanish-influenced eastern coast (Morocco, West Sahara and the Gulf of Guinea) while the Society’s journal Boletín de la Real Sociedad Geográfica published contributions on discoveries and colonising actions all over the world. The Society paid also a great attention to any American geographical topics, so very much related to Spain for centuries.

After this colonial concern for enlarging the world, in the first decades of the 20th century the Society was increasingly aware of Spain’s needs for improvement. Some of the most relevant representatives of the Spanish regeneration movement (Joaquín Costa or Lucas Mallada) were also members of the Real Sociedad Geográfica. Nowadays not many areas in our planet are left to be discovered or explored, but changes are so deep and are happening so fast that past geographical knowledge is getting more and more obsolete. Therefore, the objectives set to the Real Sociedad Geográfica by its founding statutes, « to promote, develop, and disseminate geographic knowledge in all its areas and in its applications to social, political and economic life, and to study in special the territory of Spain and of the peoples linked to Spain by language or other reasons », keeps their validity.

The Real Sociedad Geográfica’s activity in its more than 125 years of history has left as a precious inheritance an excellent specialised library, with more than 11,000 books, 12,700 booklets and 110 Spanish and foreign Geographical Journals, plus a large map collection with more than 700 maps, many of them dated in the 18th and 19th centuries and a few of them manuscript. This bibliographic and cartographic treasure is permanently hosted and available in the Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid. The Real Sociedad Geográfica is proud of its journal, Boletín de la Real Sociedad Geográfica, the oldest geographical journal published in Spain since 1876, with only one interruption during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). In its 138 volumes, the most relevant geographers, historians, economists, geologists and many other specialists have been edited. The result of the Real Sociedad Geográfica’s publishing activity are around 50 books on subjects related to discoveries, expeditions and scientific travels, including the contributions of spanish geographers to different congresses and scientific meetings. Nowadays, the spanish contribution volume to the 30th International Geography Congress (Glasgow, 2004) is in preparation.

What Everybody Should Know Before Touring Spain

When I first started driving people around Spain I was often asked questions by first time visitors regarding quite general matters related to Spanish geography, the economy, where people live, what they do, etc. In this article I’ve put together some general information about Spain that’s well worth checking out before you visit. One question which was very frequest was “What’s growing in that field?” … as I rarely had a clue I became quite skilled at accelerating for a moment then apologising for not seeing the field in question 😉 Apologies to anyone who was with me on any of those trips but as I’m sure you soon realised I really wasn’t much of a farmer!

Many visitors to Spain are not only surprised at the country’s size but also amazed at its overall geographic diversity. Over the years we’ve had so many enquiries from people who were planning to visit the country and asked us advice on “doing Spain” in three or four days! I’ve been travelling around the Iberian Peninsula for more than twenty years and still reckon I’ve got plenty more to see.

Spain is Europe’s fourth largest country after Russia, Ukraine and France. It consists of the Spanish mainland which occupies most of the Iberian peninsula apart from Portugal, the Balearic islands of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera in the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands of Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, Gomera, Fuerteventura and Hierro in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Morocco.

Just to give you some idea of distances within the country travelling by road:

  • From the France/Spain border on the Atlantic coast to the Spain Portugal border on the Meditarranean coast is 1067km
  • From the France/Spain border on the Mediterranean coast to Cabo Finisterre on the Galician coast in north-west Spain is 1332km

It’s a big place in European terms so allow enough time for your visit. It’s not just a question of visiting Madrid, Seville and Barcelona so that you can say you’ve “done Spain”, there is so much more to see and do than just these big cities.

Spain’s geographical borders are clearly defined. The north coast of Spain is over 700km long, this is often referred toas the the Atlantic coast. The Mediterranean coast is well known for its popular holiday resorts, It runs 1660km along the east and south of the country. By land France lies to the east whilst Portugal lies to the west. The continent of Africa lies a mere 13km off the Rock of Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory in the south of Spain. Beyond the mainland Spain owns the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands in the Atlantic as well as the protectorates of Ceuta and Melilla on the Moroccan mainland

Mountains – The main mountain range in is the Pyrenees which separate the country from her French neighbours. These mountains stretch more then 430km from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean coasts with Pico de Aneto the highest point at 3404 metres. On the mainland the highest peakis actually in the south of the country where Mulhacén in the Sierra Nevada montains near Granada reaches 3477 metres. However, it’s Mount Teide in Tenerife at 3715 metres which has the claim to fame as the nation’s highest peak.

Rivers – Surprisingly there are more than 1800 rivers in Spain but (not surprisingly) most of them are dry for much of the year. The longest river is the Río Tajo (or Tagus) which runs for more than 1000km from its source in central Spain to Lisbon where it enters the sea. You’ll have seen it if you’ve ever visited Toledo. The Río Ebro is 910km in length running all the way from Cantabria to the Ebro Delta near Tarragona where it enters the Mediterranean. The Río Duero is 3rd longest and is key to the fabulous wines which come from the Ribera del Duero region. The Guadalquivir River on which Seville and Cordoba lie is the deepest and most navigable. Other important waterways include the Río Guadiana, Río Miño, Río Júcar, Río Genil and Río Turia.

Climate – Most tourists visiting Spain’s Mediterranean coast or holiday islands seem to assume that all of Spain has fantastic weather all year round. Similarly football commentators assume that any player arriving in the English league will only be used to playing in hot, sunny stadiums. Both are well off the mark. The country experiences a huge range of temperatures and rainfall depending on where you visit. Summers along the ‘Costas’ are fairly reliable for holiday weather whilst the cities of the interior are scorched during the summer months. Rainfall is fairly low for most of the year in the south but is heavy along much of the north coast.

Regions of Spain – Spain is divided into 17 autonomous communities. Each of these regions contains a number of provinces. There are 50 provinces in total which make up the political and administrative map of Spain.

Economy of Spain

Tourism – Spain is the world’s fourth most visited country after China, the USA and France. Revenue from the approximately 60 million tourists who visited Spain yearly helps make up for Spain’s considerable trade deficit.

Farming and Agriculture – Raising livestock is a key industry in Spain with sheep, pigs, cattle and goats varying in importance according to region. Agriculture also remains a major part of the Spanish economy with key produce including grapes and olives. Other main products are oranges, almonds, cereal grains and vegetables.

Forestry and Fishing – Spain is one of the main producers of cork-oak which is the country’s main forest resource of Spain. The fishing industry is of enormous importance to the Spanish economy. The catch consists mostly of sardines, mussels, tuna, hake and squid.

Mining – Spain has considerable mineral wealth comprised mainly of coal, iron ore, zinc, copper and lead. There is also some mining of gold and silver as well as petroleum extraction.

Manufacturing – The manufacturing industry has experienced significant decline but still remains economically significant with regard to the production of textiles, iron and steel, motor vehicles, chemicals, clothing, footwear, ships and boats, refined petroleum and cement. Spain is also one of the world’s leading wine producers.

Energy
Spain is the third largest producer of wind power in the world with around 21% of its electricity coming from this source. Hydroelectric power accounts for around 17%, nuclear installations about 19%, coal powered about 13% and solar power 2.6%.

Population of Spain

The total population of Spain is around 47 million. The ten biggest cities in order of population are as follows:

  1. Madrid
  2. Barcelona
  3. Valencia
  4. Seville
  5. Zaragoza
  6. Malaga
  7. Murcia
  8. Palma de Mallorca
  9. Las Palmas
  10. Bilbao

More Useful Facts About Spain

Language – The official language is Castilian Spanish (Castellano) which is spoken nationwide. There are also regional languages which are used on a daily basis including Catalan , Valenciano, Gallego and, to a lesser extent, Basque.

Religion – Most of the country is Roman Catholic although it’s estimated that less than 20% of people go to church regularly. Any history of Spain will highlight the former importance of Muslims and Jews in society but few remain today other than in a few areas of the main cities.

    Spain is a country in Southwestern Europe. This is one of the largest countries of the European Union, located on the Iberian Peninsula and occupying more than 2/3 of its territory. Spain borders Portugal to the west, France and Andorra to the north, Gibraltar and Morocco to the south. The state consists of 17 autonomous communities and 2 autonomous cities and is a constitutional monarchy.

    Spain is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. The country is famous for its beaches and the sea, cuisine and nightlife, special atmosphere and friendliness of the locals. Interestingly, in terms of the number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Spain is second only to Italy and China. In addition, it is a country with great geographical and cultural diversity. Here you can find almost everything: from lush meadows and snowy mountains to swamps and deserts.

  • The official language is Spanish (in some autonomous communities, the local dialect is also considered the official language).
  • Currency – Euro.
  • Visa – Schengen.
  • Time – Central European UTC +1, summer +2.
  • Spain is one of the 30 most developed countries in the world.
  • In Spain, some shops and establishments may be closed during the day (siesta). Some restaurants and cafes do not serve dinner before 8-9 pm.
  • Tips included in the bill. If you liked the food or service, you can set aside 5-10% of the bill.
  • Geography and nature

    Spain occupies 80% of the territory of the Iberian Peninsula. It also includes the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands and a very tiny part of the North African coast. The Iberian Peninsula is located in the extreme southwest of Europe.

    The relief of Spain is extremely diverse. Mountains and plateaus play the main role in it. The country is one of the most mountainous in Europe. The largest mountain systems: the Pyrenees, the Cordillera Betica, the Iberian, Catalan and Cantabrian mountains. The largest plain is the Andalusian lowland, located in the south. In the northeast is the Aragonese plain. The highest peak in continental Spain is Mount Mulasen (3478 and). The highest peak of the country is located on the island of Tenerife – it is the Teide volcano (3718 m).

    Tagus River

    Major rivers: Guadalquivir, Tagus, Duero, Ebro. Spain is known for its long coastline. There are several thousand beaches along the coast. The largest resorts: Costa del Sol, Costa de la Luz, Costa Blanca, Costa Brava, Costa Dorada, Canary and Balearic Islands.

    Due to geographical features, the flora and fauna of Spain is very diverse. The north of the country is similar to Central Europe, and the south resembles North Africa. Broad-leaved forests are found in the northwest, deserts and semi-deserts in the south, and Mediterranean flora is characteristic of the coast.

    Climate

    Spain is one of the warmest, even hottest countries in Europe. Although due to the relief here you can find several climatic zones. The Mediterranean climate prevails, which is maritime on the coast, and arid in the central part. In most regions of the country, summers are dry and hot, winters are quite warm and humid. In the central regions, frosts are not uncommon in cold weather.

    The best time to visit

    The best time to visit Spain is April-May and September-October. July and August are very hot in most areas. During the cold season it can be quite rainy.

    History

    In the third millennium BC, the Tartess civilization existed on the territory of the modern Iberian Peninsula. But already in the second millennium BC. Iberian tribes came here, who later mixed with the Celts. In ancient times, the Pyrenees were called Iberia. The Iberians quickly settled in the territory of Castile and built fortified settlements. Around the same millennium, Phoenician and Greek colonies were founded on the coast.

    Interestingly, according to the most common theory, the name of the country comes from the Phoenician “i-Spanim”, which translates as “shore of Darmans”. The Romans used this word to refer to the territory of the entire peninsula.

    In the 3rd century, almost the entire territory of the Iberian Peninsula was subjugated by Carthage. In 206, Carthage lost control of the Pyrenees. From this period, for almost two centuries, the Romans tried to subdue these lands. The last free tribes were conquered by Rome in 19 BC under Emperor Augustus. Spain was one of the most prosperous and important Roman provinces. The Romans built expensive fortresses here. By the end of the 1st century, more than 300 cities were founded here, trade and crafts flourished.

    Toledo – one of the oldest cities in Spain

    In the 4th-5th century, Germanic tribes penetrated the territory of Spain, which were soon completely replaced by the Visigoths. Even earlier, the first Christians appeared here. The Visigoths founded their kingdom here with the capital in Barcelona, ​​and then in Toledo. In the 6th century, the emperor of Byzantium, Justinian, tried to return Spain to the rule of the empire.

    In 711, Arabs and Berbers from North Africa came to the territory of the Iberian Peninsula, later called the Moors. Interestingly, they were called to help by the Visigoths themselves (or rather, one of their factions). In just a few years, the Moors conquered almost all of the Pyrenees and formed the Umayyad Caliphate. It should be noted that the Arabs were quite merciful, preserving the property of the people, the language and religion of the conquered territories.

    Albacete

    Around the same time, the Reconquista movement arose, the goal of which was to liberate the Iberian Peninsula from the Muslims. In 718, the Moors were stopped in the mountains of Asturias. By 914, the Kingdom of Asturias included the territories of Galicia and Northern Portugal. After the end of the Umayyad dynasty in 1031, the caliphate collapsed. At the end of the 11th century, Christians captured Toledo, Madrid and some other cities. In the 12th century, the Spanish Empire was proclaimed, which arose after the unification of Castile and Aragon and existed until 1157. In the future, despite the division, the kingdoms fought together with the Moors. By the 13th century, only the emirate of Granada remained on the Iberian Peninsula.

    Despite the power of the Castilian kingdom, the country was tormented by unrest and unrest. Dominance belonged to knightly orders and powerful nobles. In Aragon, on the contrary, there were many concessions to the estates. In 1469, a dynastic marriage between Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castile contributed to the unification of the two kingdoms. In 1478, the Inquisition was established, which served as an impetus for the persecution of Muslims and Jews. In 1492, the conquest of Granada and the end of the Reconquista took place.

    Ancient town in Spain

    In 1519 the Habsburg dynasty comes to power. In the 16th century, Spain became one of the strongest powers in Europe. The absolute monarchy was established as a form of government. The Spanish kingdom captured Portugal and numerous colonies in South and Central America. Already by the middle of the 16th century, constant wars and high taxes led to economic decline. During this period, the capital of the kingdom was moved from Toledo to Madrid.

    At the beginning of the 18th century, with the death of Charles II, the War of the “Spanish Succession” broke out. As a result, the Bourbon dynasty reigned, and Spain became “pro-French”. In 1808, a popular uprising broke out, which led to the abdication of the king. Subsequently, the French were expelled from the country and the restoration of the Bourbons took place. At 19century Spain was tormented by unrest and unrest. The state lost all American colonies. In 1931, the monarchy was overthrown and a civil war began, in which Franco won. Francisco Franco established a dictatorship that lasted until 1975. This year was crowned Juan Carlos I of the Spanish Bourbon dynasty.

    Administrative division

    Spain consists of 17 autonomous regions, two so-called autonomous cities and 50 provinces.

    • Historic centers of the cities of Cuenca, Merida, Cáceres, Zaragoza, Avila and Segovia.
    • Romanesque churches in Lleida.
    • Ancient Roman walls in the town of Lugo.

    Feria de Abril

    Famous festivals:

    • Feria de Abril is the best fair in the Pyrenees. If you love folklore, flamenco and wine, then you will definitely like this event. It takes place in April-May.
    • Fallas – festival in Valencia.
    • Dia de Sant Jordi is a Catalan holiday.

    Accommodation

    Spain is an extremely popular tourist destination, so accommodation should be booked in advance. When traveling here in the high season, accommodation will cost more. Many cities, even small ones, are tourism oriented. Therefore, it is not a problem to find accommodation for any groups of tourists and financial possibilities.

    Cuisine

    Spaniards love to eat, drink wine and are very proud of their cuisine. Spanish cuisine can be described as fairly light, with lots of vegetables and a huge variety of meats and fish. Interestingly, traditional cuisine does not use a lot of spices, but relies entirely on the use of high quality ingredients and their taste.

    Shopping in Fuerteventura – A guide for all you need to know


    El Campanario on market day in Corralejo

    The shopping experience in Fuerteventura has changed a lot in the last few years, with more big brands  coming to the market and new stors opening all over the island. From shopping center, to local shops and markets, now the locals and tourists as well have access to various products and brands, some at better prices compares to mainland Europe.

    Shopping in Corralejo

    Corralejo offers a good shopping experience espcially for tourists, but remember that prices for food items can be higher in tourist resorts compared to the rest of the island.

    Supermarkets

    Corralejo has several supermarkets: Hiperdino, Supermercados Inpescasa and Eurospar. It should be easy to find one close to where you are staying. There is also a big Mercadona in the south of the resort, near the Bahia Azul villas.

    Shopping centers in Corralejo

    C. C. Las Palmers

    This commercial center is located on the main shopping street in Corralejo and it has a free underground parking.

    There are some clothing brands: Zara, Mango etc, a sports shop, a Padilla supermarket and a few smaller shops.

    Las Palmers is open every day of the week, including Sundays, from 10:00 to 22:00.

    El Campanario

    This shopping center is further from the town center, but it’s really popular especially on Sundays, when there’s a craft market going on.

    El Campanario, true to its name, has a bell tower where you can go up to admire the view. Just avoid going to the top on the hour (for example 12:00, 13:00 etc) because the bell rings at that time and it can be really noisy.

    El Campanario has an underground parking as well and there’s a Hiperdino supermarket inside, as well as around 30 other shops (both local shops and international brands), plus some cafes and restaurants, some with really nice food.

    Markets in Fuerteventura

    Every resort in Fuerteventura and almost every bigger town/village has its own market day and you can go and visit some of them to buy souvenirs, jewellery or just to look around. You can see more details in our dedicated article to markets in Fuerteventura

    Shopping in Puerto del Rosario

    The capital of Fuerteventura offers also the best opportunities for shopping, but it always depends on what you after to buy.

    CC Las Rotondas

    Las Rotondas Shopping Center is the largest commercial center on the island, with a large Hiperdino supermarket and 2 floors full of shops, plus one floor serving as a food court.

    You can find here the usual Spanish clothing brands: Zara, Bershka, Stradivarius etc, plus C&A also a cinema (good if you understand Spanish).

    Las Rotondas is closed on Sundays. 

    In Puerto del Rosario you can find also the only Lidl in Fuerteventura, which is easy to get to if you have a car. Across the street from Lidl there’s an industrial park and a large Chinese shop, where you find a lot of knick knacks at good prices.

    Puerto del Rosario also has the pedestrian street with some local shops, but these shops usually close during the lunch hours (siesta) and then reopen in the evenings and the restaurants on the street as well.

    Puerto del Rosario is the best place to come for shopping especially for residents in Fuerteventura, because here you will find also furniture shops and other types of specialized shops that you can’t find the resorts.

    Shopping in Caleta de Fuste

    Since Caleta de Fuste is located very close to the capital it is fairly easy to go to Puerto del Rosario if you have to do some major shopping. But for visitors the shops that you will find in the resort will be just enough for most things you’ll need: some groceries maybe, toiletries and snacks.

    CC Atlantico

    Atlantico Shopping Center may seem rather small, but it has a few clothing shops and jewellery stores. There’s also a good Spar supermarket, which is rather useful for grocery shopping. It is open every day of the week, including on Sundays.

    Caleta de Fuste also has 2 weekly markets, so if you’re interested in in that please check our dedicated article linked above.

    Besides the commercial center you will also find a lot of small shops with the usual souvenirs and a lot of chinese and indian merchandise, so look carefully before buying somethings, as most things you will be able to find repeatedly in many shops but at drastically different prices: example – the same beach towel can range between 3 to 6 euros, depending on where you buy it.

    Shopping in Morro Jable

    Unfortunately in the south of the island you won’t find as many shopping opportunities compared to Caleta de Fuste or Corralejo. 

    There were a few shopping malls built, but some of them where abandoned during the financial crisis and haven’t recovered yet.

    There’s also a weekly market and some local shops and souvenir shops in the old town and the pedestrian area of Morro Jable.

    Shopping for perfumes and cosmetics in Fuerteventura

    Perfumes and brand cosmetics can be cheaper in the Canary Islands compared to the UK and the rest of mainland Europe.

    Fundgrube is a popular store chain that sells perfumes, make-up and cosmetics and you will find their shops in all the large Canary Islands.

    Fundgrube stores in Fuerteventura:
    • Palm Garden in the town of Jandia
      Avda. del Saladar s/n
      Locales 2-9
      Jandía, 35625
    • Las Palmeras in Corralejo
      Centro Comercial Las Palmeras
      Avda. Nuestra Sra. del Carmen, Local 5
      Corralejo
    • Campanario inside the El Campanario shopping Center in Corralejo
      Calle Hierro, 1
      Centro Comercial El Campanario
      Corralejo
    Shopping for electronics in Fuerteventura

    We would advise that you don’t buy expensive electronics products while on holiday on the island, as sometimes the prices are larger compared to mainland Europe and there’s also the question of authenticity.

    Don’t buy electronics such as phone, cameras etc from Indian shops or small street shops. Many of the products are not authentic and you should be suspicious if their price is much lower compared to the usual price elsewhere.

    Morro Jable is located in the south and is one of the most popular tourist resorts on Fuerteventura. It’s very picturesque, the buildings are white and residential houses stretch from the town centre down to the beach. It’s also home to a port, where you can take a ferry to Las Palmas in Gran Canaria, or Santa Cruz in Tenerife. Primarily a fishing village, each July the locals celebrate the festival of La Virgen del Carmen the patron saint of fishermen. Morro Jable is home to the annual international wind surfing championships, and has some amazing beaches.

    Playa del Matorral is one of Fuerteventura’s protected natural spaces. It is located close to Morro Jable, and the northernmost part of this area attracts attention because of its salt marshes. It is home to the unusual plant known as Suaeda vera. Rare bird enthusiasts will be thrilled to see the Canary Houbara Bustard here.

    The beach here is simply stunning, it is perfect for swimming and an array of bars, cafés, and restaurants are located close by.

    In general Playa del Matorral makes for the ideal holiday destination.

    Costa Calma on Fuerteventura – Topography including position plan and island map

    You are here:

    Costa Calma

    Costa Calma is the second largest holiday town in the south of Fuerteventura. One attraction of Costa Calma is the beautiful sandy beach, which is very suitable for families with children since the water is very flat. The town is quieter than Jandía or Corralejo but nevertheless there are many apartments, holiday flats and hotels. Costa Calma is a popular place with German tourists. You will meet almost no other nationalities. 

    Map of Costa Calma

    Information about Costa Calma

    “Costa Calma” means “quiet coast”; it is called like this due to its offshore winds and the low waves resulting from them.  

    Costa Calma is situated at the northernmost point of the peninsula “Jandía”. (Attention – Jandía is the name for the tourist centre near Morro Jable but also for the entire peninsula of Fuerteventura!) Costa Calma lies on an isthmus; it’s only 4 km beeline to the west coast and thus to the other side of the island.   

    The wind turbines of the wind park near Costa Calma are particularly remarkable. Due to the isthmus, there is a constant wind during the whole year.  

    View of Costa Calma

    If you go to Costa Calma, you will immediately notice the large wood of palm and pine trees on the left and right side of the road – especially since such a green oasis outside of hotels and holiday resorts is rare on Fuerteventura. The main road leads right through this palm forest and thus keeps a large part of the noise off from the rest of the town. The wood divides the town into two parts. On some road signs, you can still read Costa Calma’s former name “Cañada del Río”.

    The town of Costa Calma consists of holiday flats, apartments, hotels, shopping centres and restaurants and is thus a pure holiday resort, built from about 1970. There is no historic town centre. In fact, no real centre is to be found at all – a “small town centre” is the small square opposite to the Taro Beach hotel.

    Sotavento shopping centre, opposite to Taro Beach hotel

    Costa Calma belongs to the municipality of Pajara. The town is rather quiet – a fact which is not always negative.

    The buildings in the central district, behind the “main beach”, are flat. In the newer districts in the south and north of Costa Calma, higher hotels have, unfortunately, been built.

    Costa Calma beach

    The town’s main attraction, and probably the main reason for visiting Costa Calma, is the large, quiet bay with its clean sandy beach. The bay is about 1.5 km long and is the centre of the town.

    Clear water and mostly low waves – Costa Calma beach

    You can also have a snack on Costa Calma beach

    From Costa Calma beach, you can hike along the beach to the south (Morro Jable) for about 21 km. Not far from Costa Calma beach starts Playa de Sotavento – a breath-taking beach scenery and at the same time an excellent surfing area. -> see beach hike

    Playa de Sotavento – very close to Costa Calma

    The beach is very suitable for children – mostly low waves and a clean beach with flat water. Behind the beach, there are apartments and hotels, which are not separated from the beach by an esplanade.

    You will find further detailed information about Costa Calma beach here on our web sites: -> Costa Calma beach

    Shopping and restaurants

    In Costa Calma, there are numerous shopping centres (Centro Comercial), which are spread throughout the whole town. In the shopping centres, you will find a mix of restaurants, supermarkets and different shops (souvenirs, clothes, drugstores, etc.).  

    Some of the shopping centres are: C.C. Sotavento, C.C. El Palmeral (next to the petrol station), C.C. Botanico, C.C. Canada del Rio, C.C. Bahia, C.C. Bahia Calma, C.C. Costa Calma, etc.

    Entrance to the shopping centre El Palmeral

    Cabrito shop (our partner) in the shopping centre El Palmeral

    There are just a few real top restaurants but those who are looking for one will find one. One of them is the “Galeria” with its sun terrace with sea view. 

    For a small lunch bite we recommend the beach bars, which offer delicious starters and small main dishes.

    Furthermore, there is a weekly market every Sunday from 12 noon. It is situated at the northern town exit.

    Nightlife in Costa Calma is rather quiet. It takes place mainly in the shopping centres or in the hotels. After 10 p.m. you should not expect too much – nevertheless, there are some discos (e. g. Bounce in C.C. El Palmeral) which start at midnight. In the holiday flats, you will probably prefer sitting on your own balcony or patio and enjoy the evening mood.  

    In Costa Calma, you will have no language difficulties (even if you don’t speak Spanish) since German is understood and spoken in most restaurants and shops. Many owners are Germans themselves. 

    Bus/Taxi

    There are sufficient bus stops. Bus schedules are to be found in island magazines, amongst others, or just ask the bus driver. From Costa Calma, there are bus connections to Esquinzo, Jandía/Morro Jable, La Lajita, La Pared, Tarajalejo, Gran Tarajal, Puerto del Rosario, Flughafen, Antigua, Tunieje and Pajara.

    There are many taxi stands: there is a large taxi stand at the resort “Rio Sol”; another one is directly next to the police station.

    History

    Around 1970, the first houses were built along Costa Calma. Before that, the landscape was uninhabited and desert-like. Since 1984, when the bumpy road to Morro Jable was asphalted, tourism has developed quickly. From this time on, many hotels and apartment resorts have been built.

    The best markets in Fuerteventura

    Open-air markets are a great opportunity to discover local products, mingle with locals and purchase an original and traditional souvenir to remind you of your trip to Fuerteventura. Besides offering wonderful beaches and landscapes, the oldest island of the Canary Islands archipelago is also a fantastic shopping destination. The prices are cheaper than in other Spanish cities, and you will unearth handcrafted products and traditional delicacies which only exist in this jewel of the Atlantic.

    Hippy flea markets and traditional markets in Fuerteventura

    The good thing about markets is that they offer all sorts of products, meaning you will always find something that you like. The only downside is that they don’t usually open seven days a week. As such, you should plan your visit in advance to make sure you go when the market is open. Don’t worry, as you will find markets all over the island of Fuerteventura. We’ve made a list of Fuerteventura’s most authentic markets, allowing you to plan your trip accordingly and take home a fantastic souvenir.

    Markets in Corralejo

    The town of Corralejo, in northern Fuerteventura, is home to three different markets. The first is held at the Centro Comercial Campanario, comprising a traditional Canarian market selling local products and handcrafted goods. It opens on Thursdays and Sundays, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The same shopping centre holds a flea market every Saturday, where you can browse a selection of second-hand items.

    The second market, held in the Acua Water Park (formerly known as the Parque Acuático Baku), sells all kinds of products, handcrafted goods and accessories. It opens every Tuesday and Friday, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

    The third market is Paseos del Arte, held in a Bohemian ‘hippy’ setting that is bursting with art. This market is held every Friday on Calle Churruca, and every Saturday in the pedestrianised area outside the church, open from 4:00 PM to 10:00 PM.

    Lajares artisan market

    The town of Lajares, close to Corralejo, hosts the Mercado Artesanal de Los Lajares artisan market. This is an open-air craft market with all kinds of stalls, selling everything from handcrafted items to typical products of the area. You can also find handcrafted jewellery, items made from recycled materials, handbags, accessories and local products. This market holds children’s activities on the first Saturday of every month, with clowns and jugglers. On the second and final Saturday of every month, meanwhile, it also holds live music performances. This market is held every Saturday in the Plaza del Pueblo, open from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

    Mercado de las Tradiciones in La Oliva

    The town of La Oliva, located in inland Fuerteventura, is home to beautiful spots of ochre hues and earthy tones. The Mercado de las Tradiciones provides the perfect excuse to visit the area. This market is held in the Casa de los Coroneles, a historic stately home that has been renovated and reconverted into a cultural venue. You can find a huge variety of local goods, although it is famous for its typical calados majoreros (handmade needlework of Fuerteventura), oil paintings of the island’s landscapes, incredible spicy mojo sauces and traditional jams. If you visit this market, you will also find handmade jewellery; products of wood, silver and leather; and a selection of fruits and vegetables. This market is held every Tuesday and Friday, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

    Markets in Puerto del Rosario

    Puerto del Rosario, the capital city of the island of Fuerteventura, is home to several different markets. Firstly, there is a municipal market where locals do their daily shopping. Secondly, there is the Mercado Agrícola de la Biosfera, offering a huge variety of organic products and original and creative handcrafted goods. This market is held every Saturday on the Avenida de la Constitución, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

    Markets in Puerto del Rosario

    Close to Puerto del Rosario is the Mercado de la Vega de Tetir, renowned for its ceramics, typical needlework of the Canary Islands, palm-based products, aloe vera products, etc., and a wide range of typical local dishes. This market is held every three months, on the second Sunday of March, June, September and December in the Plaza Pública de Tetir, open from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

    Markets in Caleta de Fuste

    Caleta de Fuste, in eastern Fuerteventura, is home to two markets: a handicrafts market and another market selling a broader range of products. The handicrafts market is held in the Plaza Pública de Caleta de Fuste, opening every Friday from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM.

    The other market is located next to the Caleta de Fuste bus stop, held every Tuesday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. It also sells handcrafted products (although it doesn’t specialise in this type of goods), as well as a wide range of jewellery and accessories.

    Costa Calma market

    If you head to Costa Calma in the Jandía Peninsula, you will find the Mercado Africano de Costa Calma. This market isn’t renowned for selling high-quality products, as it specialises in the sale of counterfeit goods. However, you might be pleasantly surprised! The Marroquinería Africana is a good place to buy a souvenir of your holiday. If you come to this market, you will see how the traders and customers barter like in typical ‘bazars’. It is open every Wednesday and Sunday from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, on the Avenida Hapag Lloyd opposite the P&P.

     

    Costa Calma market

    La Lajita artisan market

    The town of La Lajita, near to Costa Calma, is home to the Mercadillo Artesano de Oasis Park. All the products are 100% handmade and organic: fruits, vegetables, smoked fish, goat’s cheese and handcrafted products. This agricultural, handicraft and gastronomic market is one of Fuerteventura’s best markets in terms of the variety and quality of its products. This market is held every Sunday from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

    Morro Jable market

    In the town of Morro Jable in southern Fuerteventura, you will find a market that serves everything from handcrafted products to counterfeit goods. We recommend browsing the selection of leather handbags and handmade goods, as you may find something special to take home with you. This market is held in the Centro Comercial Cosmo shopping centre every Monday and Thursday, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

    Even if you’re not a massive shopping lover, strolling between the stalls of the markets in Fuerteventura is a hugely gratifying experience. It’s also a great opportunity to talk with the craftsmen and to sample the delicious homemade delicacies sold at the stalls.

      Rest time –

    • Advantages: Unfortunately, I can’t write anything about the hotel itself. When I arrived there, I was informed that due to the rain that had passed the day before, a certain number of rooms were flooded, and there were no vacant rooms in good condition. I was offered to move to another hotel, where a room had already been booked for me. The incident itself is unpleasant, BUT! We must give them their due, they offered me to move to a hotel, which, although located a little further from the center, is in itself a class higher – both in price, and in territory, and in terms of rooms. Moreover, I don’t know if this is a coincidence or not, but in another hotel they gave me a room in accordance with the wishes that I made when booking – a quiet place, the top floor.

      Rest time –

    • Advantages: Pretty convenient location, everything is within walking distance, although the town itself is not big. Near a supermarket. 15 minutes to the beach. We were with a car and drove to the beach outside the city. Gorgeous beaches near Riu.
      Parking is free next to the hotel.
      A large room with a living-dining room and a separate bedroom, a kitchen, probably convenient for a family with children, dishes, a kettle, a toaster, a stove, a refrigerator with a freezer.

      Cons: Everything is old! There was an unbearable smell in the bathroom! The towels are brown so you don’t have to worry about washing.
      There is no sound insulation, you sleep like on the street, not to mention opening the window.

    – a resort with a developed infrastructure. There is a supermarket, restaurants, bars with
    live music, multiplex cinema and bowling alley. Thirteen kilometers from
    Puerto del Rosario airport, among the sand dunes, picturesque fishing
    villages, in 2002 the Elba Palace Golf hotel was built in a strict
    according to the traditional Canarian style. It is part of the Hoteles Elba chain and
    is the club house of the Fuerteventura Club, the best golf establishment in the Canary Islands. Exactly
    that’s why he attracts fans

    The best waterpark hotels in Spain

    Thanks to its miles of beaches, enjoyable climate and short flight time, Spain has long been a favourite with British holidaymakers. But, that’s not all it has to offer.

    Water babies listen up — Spain’s mainland, Balearic trio and Canary Islands are home to some of the world’s top waterparks and we’ve got hotels that grant you FREE access, all day, every day for the duration of your stay!

    Are you wondering what are the best hotels for waterpark holidays? Whether you fancy floating your way down the lazy river or riding the rapids, here’s where to find the best hotels with waterparks in Mainland Spain, Canary Islands and Balearic Islands.

    Mainland Spain

    1. Magic Natura Animal Waterpark – Costa Blanca

    Magic Natura Animal Waterpark and Polynesian Lodge Resort in Costa Blanca

    When it comes to waterpark hotels in Benidorm it doesn’t get much better than the Magic Natura Animal Waterpark. Looking to book a cheap holiday to Benidorm? This place caters for both sliders and safari-goers at the same time — its onsite waterpark gives you slides, chutes and a ginormous wave pool, whilst its wildlife location gives you over 200 different kinds of animals to get up-close to.

    Asif that’s not enough to keep you occupied, there’s also three swimming pools choose from — one of which has an infinity-edge that overlooks the wildlife park. If you’re lucky you might spot an elephant or two during your swim.

    2. Globales Playa Estepona – Costa Del Sol

    Globales Playa Estepona in Estepona, Costa Del Sol

    Along with its recent makeover, the Globales Playa Estepona hotel now proudly presents its very own waterpark. Revamped just before the pandemic, expect to find hair-raisers from the kamikaze to a slippery space bowl.

    Although some of the slides here might be a little too big for the kids, that doesn’t mean that they have to miss out on all of the fun. In fact, they’ve got their own mini slides in a dedicated pirate-themed splash area to enjoy instead.

    3. Aquasplash Estival Resort – Costa Dorada

    Aquasplash Estival Resort in La Pineda, Costa Dorada

    With the word splash in its name you can expect to do exactly that at the Aquasplash Estival. This splash park resort is kitted out specifically with water babies in mind. Along with its trio of pools, waterfalls and hot tubs, there’s a waterpark right on the doorstep.

    Just a 10-minute walk along the seafront will take you to the Aquopolis where you’ll be given unlimited access as part of your holiday package. Catering for everyone of all ages, under 10s get their own section all to themselves, families can ride in dinghy’s of four whilst the thrill-seekers can fly across the pool on a zip wire.

    Canary Islands

    1. Villa Mandi – Tenerife

    Villa Mandi in Los Cristianos, Tenerife

    Did someone say free access to one of the world’s BEST waterparks?! That’s right, a sunny getaway to Villa Mandi grants you every day access to the award-winning Siam Park. In just a 10-minutes’ drive from the hotel you’ll arrive at the 46-acre site, ready for the ultimate all-you-can-slide experience.

    From dropping down the 28-metre high Tower or Power through a shark-filled aquarium to riding the fastest water roller-coaster ever to be seen, slides here are some of the most diverse in the world. It’s not just about the thrill, there’s plenty of family-friendly options too including the Jungle Snake lazy river and Sea Lion island.

    2. Paradise Island – Lanzarote

    Paradise Island in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote

    If you fancy splashing your way around a slide-packed waterpark and four pools, Paradise Island has you covered. The waterpark, Dino Park, is home to seven waterslides and an exciting splash zone for kids, plus, there’s a little go-karting track, soft play, and four pools to pick from.

    The hotel is only 1.5km from the beach and there’s a free shuttle service to Playa Dorada several times a day.

    3.

    Paradise Lago Taurito – Gran Canaria

    Paradie Lago Taurito in Playa Taurito, Gran Canaria

    Waterpark? Check. Beachfront location? Check. The Hotel Paradiso Lago Taurito is the perfect place to head if you’re looking for a waterpark hotel on the beach. Whether you want to spend your morning riding speedy slides before an afternoon stretching out on the sand, or vice versa — this hotel puts everything at your fingertips.

    Balearic Islands

    1. Club Mac – Majorca

    Club Mac in Alcudia, Majorca

    The Club Mac has eight pools on its doorstep and a waterpark just across the road. This place is the biggest of three hotels in a palm-filled holiday complex, complete with an ornamental lake. The hotels have eight pools between them.

    Of the eight pools, five are for adults – there’s a pair connected by a lazy river so you can pool-hop without having to leave the water. Kids get three pools to themselves, including a sea monster-themed splash park. The big-seller here, though, is the waterpark just outside. Here, you’ve got a wave pool, corkscrew flumes and multi-lane slides.

    2. Holiday Village Ibiza

    Holiday Village Ibiza in Port Des Torrent, Ibiza

    The Holiday Village Ibiza offers the ultimate action-packed getaway. Along with a sky-high Aerial adventure course, a day-long sports programme and the choice of three different pools to jump in, there’s an onsite waterpark. Here you’ll find loads of slides, plus a splash area exclusively for the little ones.

    While its Sirenis Aquagames waterpark caters to the adrenaline junkies of the group, those who would rather kick-back on the sand with a cocktail in hand can do just that since the beach is only a few minutes’ walk away. Sounds like the ideal All Inclusive waterpark holiday to us!

    3. Globales Los Delfines – Cala N Blanes, Menorca

    Globales Les Delfines in Cala N Blanes, Menorca

    A figure-of-eight-shaped pool takes centre stage in the grounds of Los Delfines! Right next to the hotel you’ll find this water park, it’s packed with a variety of different slides and there’s a chill out area to relax. If you’re staying All Inclusive from May 2022 you’ll have unlimited access to the waterpark.

    They’ve got giant slides, water tunnels, the black hole and kamikaze slides. And there’s plenty on dry land, too, like go karts, a play area and snack bars. There’s also a water castle and splash area for the little’uns, which is a tower with lots of water sprays and a little slide.

    *Just a heads up, some of the slides at these hotels are too big for little ones to ride and have height restrictions in place for safety reasons. More information can be found on each hotel page.

    Spanish hotels with water slides and parks recommended by parents

    1. Hotel Globalese Los Patos Park, Costa del Sol

    Example package: From £1,108 for a family of4 (2 adults, 2 children) in a family room for 7 nights in October half term 2022, including breakfast on Booking.com.

    Where is it? In a town named Benalmadena, on the Costa Del Sol, which is in Southern Spain. It’s an 8-minute drive to the area’s largest theme park, Tivoli World.

    Nearest airport: Malaga airport (22 mins drive)

    What water activities it offers: For younger kids, there’s an on-site splash park in the pool at the hotel, which comes with slides, a pirate ship and a water cannon. There are also faster twisting, tunnel and 4-track slides for slightly older kids.

    What families say: The pool and hotel slides score highly, as do the general entertainment options for kids. One mum commented, “We arrived in early May for a week with our 21 month old. It was our first family holiday abroad and I was slightly anxious about how it was going to go. This hotel didn’t disappoint. The entertainment at night was the best I’ve seen in a hotel. It kept our son amused and he even sat one night in his pram for an hour which was bliss.”

    Another mum agreed, “I stayed for 10 days with a 4 year old and an 8 month old. The hotel really is a heaven for kids. Although I’m not sure I would come here if I travelled without children – as there are kids EVERYWHERE.”

    What to watch out for: Nearby beach is stony and evening entertainment can be quite noisy.

    For pricing and dates: Visit Booking.com, Expedia or On The Beach

    all water parks of Costa Dorada and Costa Brava

    Visit at least one of the seven water parks near Barcelona. These huge entertainment complexes for adults and children are located under the open Spanish sky, so they are open only in the summer.

    Traveler

      In the water park you can ride water attractions, dine in local cafes and restaurants or have a picnic, watch dolphin and fur seal shows.

      In Catalonia, water parks are located along the coast, most have a free transfer from neighboring tourist cities. Therefore, I recommend that you first of all go to one of the parks closest to your hotel.

      I visit Catalonia every year, and my children and I visited almost all the water parks that can be reached from Barcelona. Here is my rating of water parks east and west of Barcelona that you can get to on your own.

      Map of water parks of Costa Dorada and Costa Brava

      One of the six Aquapolis parks is located in La Pineda, near Salou. From Barcelona it can be reached in one hour. I recommend it if you are staying in Tarragona, Salou or Reus.

      For me, this is the best option on the warm coast of the Costa Dorada: it is comfortable to relax here even in September, when other water parks are closed. And if you buy a ticket on the website 10 days in advance, you can save a lot.

      The water park is large — 110,000 sq.m., but there are not many water activities here: 6 extreme rides, 8 slides for adults and children, 4 zones for kids. There are 5 VIP areas with sun loungers on the territory, a lot of space to relax on your towels.

      The peculiarity of the water park is that dolphins and fur seals live here. Twice a day you can visit the show with the participation of marine animals and at any time watch them in the exhibition pool.

      • The water park is open from May 18 to September 30, from 11:30 to 17:00-19:00.

      The water park is located near the tourist town of Lloret de Mar, 75 km north of Barcelona. This is the most popular water park on the Costa Brava. Suitable for adults who love extreme slides and for families with children.

      In September it can be cool here. In autumn, choose from water parks further south, on the warmer coast of the Costa Dorada.

      There are 21 water attractions in the park. Among them are 5 extreme ones: a kamikaze, a free fall capsule, a roller coaster, a water funnel and a descent through a closed pipe in inflatable boats. There are 13 attractions for a relaxing family holiday. And for the little ones – 3 water zones.

      The peculiarity of the park is that it is located on a hilly area among a pine forest, so you can always find shade.

      Map Water World

      Part of the famous Port Aventura World complex 110 km south of Barcelona, ​​close to Salou and Tarragona. There are a lot of visitors here, and you can stand in line for an attraction for more than half an hour, so I do not recommend considering this option in July and August.

      17 rides fit in a small area of ​​50 thousand square meters. The most famous and extreme is the descent from the height of a 12-storey building at a speed of 6 m/s, at an angle of 55°. There are several water areas for children: an indoor pool, an interactive water playground, a children’s pool with a pirate galleon and a lagoon with children’s water activities.

      Children’s area at Caribe Aquatic Park

      Water park for families with children 110 km from Barcelona. I do not recommend traveling from the capital of Catalunya, there are water parks closer. And for those who rest on the Costa Brava, not far from Girona, this is a good option.

      There are 23 attractions in the park: 8 for small children, 2 extreme ones – kamikaze and a black hole, and the rest are suitable for older children and adults.

      There are four cafes and a picnic area – you can bring your own food.

      Scheme Aquadiver

      A small water park – dolphinarium 70 km from Barcelona, ​​also not far from Lloret de Mar. I recommend it for families with children who would be interested in watching sea animals and birds. Adult companies will not be interested here – there are only 10 attractions in the water park, there are no extreme ones.

      All slides are suitable for children over 1.15 m tall. For the little ones, there are three children’s areas with small slides, suspension bridges and fountains.

      A special feature of the park is a show featuring dolphins, fur seals and exotic birds. Each performance takes place twice a day and is included in the ticket price.

      You can bring your own food into the territory – for a picnic there is a separate area with wooden tables and benches. There are three cafes where you can order a set lunch from 14.5 €.

      During the season, when the queues for attractions are long, you can buy a Fast Pass for 10 € and stand in a separate line that moves faster.

      • Opening hours in 2020: from May 18 to September 6 from 10:00 – 10:30 to 17:00 – 18:30.

When buying a combined ticket (train and entrance ticket to Marineland) at Renfe ticket offices, the train ride is free. If you buy tickets separately, a one-way ticket will cost 5.5 €.

      Scheme Marineland

      Illa Fantasia is a family water park, the closest to Barcelona – only 25 km. One of the oldest water parks in Spain, it has existed for over 25 years, so the water attractions are outdated. After other water parks, it may not be interesting and boring here, but there are always a lot of locals – it’s convenient to get here. Other things to do in Barcelona with kids

      The territory of the park is 70 thousand square meters. There are 22 attractions: indoor and outdoor slides of varying difficulty for adults and children, and 3 large pools: a lake with calm water, a pool with artificial waves and a pool with water cascades. The territory of the pools is rented for evening and night events, concerts and festivals are held here.

      There is a dedicated picnic area with 900 tables and 100 barbecue areas. You can dine with what you brought with you or bought at a local supermarket. For those who prefer to dine in cafes and restaurants, there are several establishments with pizza, burgers, fast food and ice cream.

      Lockers for storing things in the park are paid: 5 – 7 € depending on the size, plus a deposit of 5 €, which will be returned upon return of the key to the locker. There is free parking in front of the entrance.

      • Opening hours: June – September from 10:00 to 18:00 – 19:00.
      • Admission: adults and children over 1.2 m €29, children between 0.9 and 1.2 m €17, children under 0.9 m free.
      • Illa Fantasia website.
      • The free bus from Barcelona leaves at 10.00 am from Sants metro station and returns half an hour before the park closes.
      • Local trains Renfe Cercanias, line R1, to Premia de Mar station. There are free shuttles from the station to the water park. When buying a train ticket and an exit ticket to the water park at the Renfe ticket office, travel is free.

      Scheme Illa Fantasia

      The Aquabrava water park was opened in 1987 near the border with France and covers an area of ​​10 hectares. It is worth going here from Figueres and other towns in the northeast of Spain. Most of the attractions are old, after visiting new and modern water parks it will not be interesting. I think that the price of the entrance ticket does not correspond to the level.

      Another “minus” of the water park: you can’t bring your own food and drinks, bags are checked at the entrance. There is no picnic area. You will have to dine in one of the expensive local catering establishments: two restaurants and three cafes.

      There are 19 classic attractions of varying difficulty: 5 extreme ones, such as the black hole, kamikaze and cobra; 12 exciting – parallel descent, a trip along artificial rivers and slides in inflatable boats. For family holidays – pools with and without waves, a water area for kids.

      • Opening hours in 2020: from June 3 to September 13, from 10:00 to 19:00.
      • Admission: adults over 1.2 m €33, children under 1.2 m and adults over 65 €20.
      • Sunbed rental €3, locker rental €9 (€5 returned upon return of the key).
      • Aquabrava website
      • Free buses from Roses, Santa Margarita, Empuriabrava, Sant Pere Pescador.

      Plan Aquabrava

      • It is not necessary to rent a sunbed in the water park, it can be replaced by a large towel. And I don’t recommend saving on renting a storage locker, otherwise you can lose valuable things.
      • To pay for sunbeds and storage lockers, you must have cash, you cannot pay for these services by card.
      • In front of the entrance to each attraction there is information about the height from which children are allowed.
      • Be sure to bring sunscreen, a towel and open-toed rubber shoes. Water parks have showers, so shampoo and shower gel will come in handy.
      • In order for the insurance company to cover medical expenses in the event of an accident at the water park, the insurance must have the “Active Recreation” option.

      Park Warner Bich in Madrid

      9000 Open in June 2002, Parqu. Madrid is one of the most important theme parks in Spain along with Port Aventura and Terra Mítica.

      This theme park is divided into five large themed areas: Hollywood Boulevard, Warner Bros. Studios, DC SuperHeroes World, Old West, and Cartoon Village, which adjoins Warner Beach Park.

      Parque Warner Beach is unique in Spain for its design and cartoon theme. This is an aquatic recreation area for the whole family in Warner Park, where you can enjoy a refreshing dip during the summer season.

      Here you will find Malibu beach with large areas of natural sand and a beach full of sun loungers for sunbathing and sunbathing. In addition, there is a VIP area, two wave pools (one for children and one for adults) and endless attractions.

      Parque Warner Beach rides come in three levels of intensity: mild, moderate and intense. The soft rides are suitable for the little ones as they have small slides, streams, low intensity waves and the famous “water barrel” which is emptied from time to time. Instead, moderate to intense rides will be the favorites of those looking for higher risk in the water. For example, water slides full of curves, descents and descents at full speed, giant funnels and giant capsule-type rides, and tsunamis that threaten to knock you off your buoyancy.

      Regarding the services of Parque Warner Beach, if you forgot your towel at home or don’t want to wear it in the water park shop, you can rent towels for 5 euros, leaving a small deposit, which will be returned upon delivery. In addition, Parque Warner Beach has lockers where you can store your belongings for the same price.

      Similarly, Warner Beach Park has hundreds of hammocks scattered throughout the facility for free use by visitors. There are changing rooms, showers, a toilet and a medical service next to the Gran Kahuna restaurant. The restaurant is celiac friendly where you can have a bite to eat between soak and soak.

      Siam Park

      Image | TravelJet

      Located in Costa Adeje in Tenerife, Siam Park is by far the largest water park in all of Europe. Also voted by Tripadvisor users as the best in the world for quality and convenience. And the fact is that there are a large number of attractions designed both for families and for those who want to relax or get strong emotions.

      Because bathers respect it so much, it is usually crowded, especially in summer. Therefore, in order to avoid standing in lines, we recommend going to Siam Park early to get free lockers and buy a Speedy Pass. There are they in the morning (9-14 hours) or afternoon (14-18 hours) and allow you to enter eight attractions and even repeat the one you liked the most.

      The most popular is the Tower of Power, a 28m high slide with a total travel of 76m and a speed of 80km/h. The finale is quite unexpected as the ride ends in a tunnel surrounded by a giant aquarium where you can see sharks, manta rays and other fish species.

      In addition, Siam Park has the world’s largest artificial wave: a 3-meter wave that the most intrepid surfers or see it break at your feet on the edge of the white sand of its beach. A good way to start surfing or have fun jumping on the waves.

      One of the most curious aspects of Siam Park is that it contains the largest Thai city built by Thais outside of Asia. Incredible truth? And what better way to relax than to enjoy exotic park views by walking along the Mai Tai River, a tropical river that flows through this theme park with slow and fast sections for the best views.

      Since food is not allowed from outside, Siam Park has several restaurants and bars where you can eat in peace, taste oriental cuisine and enjoy a cocktail while watching waterfalls or sea lions.

      A visit to Siam Park is not over until you stop by the Thai-style Floating Market for a souvenir. There are all kinds of shops here and you can even give yourself a good massage.

      Aqualandia Benidorm

      Image | Aqualandia

      This is the second largest water park in Spain after Siam Park in Tenerife, specially designed for the whole family to experience a water party.

      It is worth taking advantage of the visit to spend the whole day there. Aqualandia Benidorm has 12 pools, 17 slides, two different water attractions for children, green areas, free parking, restaurants, shops and much more.

      Tickets can be purchased at the park’s box office and also online, where Aqualandia Benidorm offers exclusive discounts along with offers for families.

      Along with attractions for all ages, this water park has other services such as restaurants and bars where you can eat burgers, pizza, dogs… although you can also bring food from home and eat it at the picnic areas scattered throughout Aqualandia Benidorm.

      Each attraction also has a lifeguard to ensure that the rules are followed, and in the event of an incident there is a first aid area on site. In addition, they have ATMs, several toilets and a gift shop where you can buy souvenirs.

      Cerceda Water Park in A Coruña

      Image | Voice of Galicia

      This water park is located in Cerceda, 27 km from A Coruña and 42 km from Santiago de Compostela. For those visiting Galicia in the summer, this is an option that complements a visit to the magnificent Galician beaches or the city of Compostela.

      The water park opens its doors every year from June to September for families to have fun with laughter and take a dip in the water. In addition, entertaining and educational workshops on caring for the environment are organized.

      Some of the most prominent attractions of the Aquapark de Cerceda are the wave pool, the donut slide, the open water tube, or the Roaller slide, a giant V-shaped slide that runs from one end to the other on an inflatable donut. It is most in demand by visitors to the water park.

      The park has large green areas where you can sunbathe and admire nature. There is also a cafeteria and a kiosk where you can refresh yourself with a drink or order something to eat.

      On the hottest days of summer, it is advisable to book tickets and go early, because the park is one of the most popular places for Galician families in summer.

      Salou’s famous fountains began with the Font Lluminosa – Luminous Fountain, built in 1973 by the architect Carles Buigas, creator of the world-famous Magic Fountain in Barcelona. From Easter to November, evening light and sound shows are held here.

      During performances, the fountain’s 100 water jets create a spectacle of many combinations, all harmonizing with the music. In recent years, another fountain has appeared – it is called Cybernetic for the complexity of its design. It has a thousand jets, and in the middle is a real labyrinth that many people are trying to overcome.

      Address: Fuente Cibernetica Salou, Passeig de Jaume I, 1, 43840 Salou, Tarragona, Spain.

      King Jaime I Boulevard

      King Jaume I Boulevard.

      Avenida Jaume I stretches for a kilometer along the central city beach of Llevant. This picturesque marble-tiled promenade is popular with locals and tourists. Here you can see people and show yourself.

      The busy boulevard is lined with shops, restaurants and bars overlooking the apartments of a Mediterranean resort above.

      Palm trees are planted on both sides of the embankment, and in the center there is a monumental monument to the famous Jaime I the Conqueror. This king, who ruled in the 13th century, is a national hero of Catalonia, who is credited with the liberation of Barcelona from the French and several cities from the Moors.

      Address: Passeig de Jaume I, Salou, Tarragona 43840, Spain.

      Coves of Cap Salou

      Coves of Cala Crans.

      If you are not a fan of the busy beach areas of the resort, then you will like the picturesque small beaches near the cape in the east. There are only five of them: Cala Viña, Cala Crans, Cala Morisca, Cala Font and Cala Peña Tallada. All can be reached by car or on foot if long walks do not intimidate you.

      There are a minimum of buildings on the cape, so the beaches in the bays are practically sandy sections of the coast, surrounded by limestone cliffs with lush coniferous vegetation – fragrant Aleppo pines.

      Address: Cala Crancs, Carrer dels Pins del Cintet, s/n, 43840 Salou, Tarragona, Spain.

      Salou Capellans Beach

      View of Salou Capellans Beach.

      Playa Capellans – the golden mean between the cape and Llevant beach. This wonderful small beach is located in a quieter area of ​​the resort, flanked by two rocky ledges. Compared to Llevant Beach, there are fewer waves and shallow water, so Capellas is ideal for those who are not very good swimmers.

      Although it is not the longest resort beach, its sandy coastline is quite wide, so even in the midst of the summer season it is not as crowded as on the neighboring Llevant beach.

      Address: Capellans Beach Salou, Carrer de Brussel les, 30, 43840 Salou, Tarragona, Spain.

      Tarragona Ancient City

      It takes only 10 minutes by train from Salou to one of the most prosperous cities of its time in the western region of the Roman Empire. Previously, this ancient city was called Tarracon and was the first major settlement and capital of the province of Tarraconensis, which covered most of the territory of present-day Spain.

      Tarragona impresses with the wealth of Roman buildings and defensive structures. Not far from the sea is an amphitheater, and a little higher – a provincial forum, over which rises the Praetorian tower. There is also a museum with a rich collection of artifacts. Just outside the city you can see an amazing Roman aqueduct, a burial tower, an ancient Roman quarry and the Arc de Triomphe.

      Address: Roman Amphitheater in Taragonna, Parc de l’amfiteatre, s/n, 43003 Tarragona, Spain.

      Ancient Roman walls and old quarter in Tarragona

      Ancient Roman walls. | Photo: wikimedia.

      The walls of Tarragona are one of the first projects of the famous Roman general Spice, who landed on the Iberian Peninsula in the 3rd century BC. e. Tarragona served as a base for the Romans during the Punic War. Over the course of 22 centuries, the walls were destroyed, but from the well-preserved lower part of the fortifications, it can be said with certainty that this is a Roman structure.

      In addition to the ancient walls, in Taraggon you can see the medieval Archbishop’s Tower. Ancient walls surround the most elevated part of Tarragona – the old quarter of Part Alta. It is a beautiful network of streets with steep ascents and descents, where the best local restaurants are found.

      Everything here hints at the Roman past of Tarragona, including a number of buildings surrounded by authentic ancient Roman walls.

      Address: Muralles Romanes de Tarragona, Via de l’Imperi Romà, Tarragona, Spain.

      Tarragona Cathedral

      At the highest point of the city rises an elegant Gothic Cathedral. For centuries, this hill has been an illuminated place. During the reign of Emperor Tiberius, a Roman temple stood here (its fragments were discovered in the foundation of the cathedral only at the turn of the 21st century), and later an Arab mosque was located on the same site.

      The peculiarity of the Cathedral is a mixture of architectural styles – Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque, this is clearly seen in the examplevarious chapels inside the building. Walk along the cloister of the cathedral – a real oasis of calm with Gothic arcades and fountains in the center.

      On the east side, you can find a small inscription in Arabic dating back to the 10th century, the time when there was a mosque of the Moors.

      Address: Catedral de Tarragona, Pla de la Seu, S/N, 43003 Tarragona, Spain.

      Tarragona wine region

      Tarragona can be called the province of cava. About 70% of all grapes grown here are white varieties such as Macabeo. They produce Cava, a favorite in Catalonia, a sparkling white wine of the D.O category. (Denominación de origen) .

      If you travel through the countryside, you can find a cooperative farm shop in every village selling the best local products, including wines. It is here that you can buy real local wine – cava, nutmeg or Chartreuse liqueur.

      In addition, on the shelves of these shops you will find: award-winning olive oil, dried fruits and nuts, collected in orchards on the coastal plain around Reus and Tarragona.

      Address: El Pla de Manlleu, 43714 El Pla de Manlleu, Tarragona, Spain.

      Reus Township

      From Salou, this thriving business town can be reached in less than 15 minutes. Reus was formed at the turn of the century, which is why there is so much beautiful architecture in the Catalan Art Nouveau style.

The 390 air-conditioned rooms and suites here feature marble bathrooms and furnished balconies, and while they all have mini-fridges and air-conditioning, entry-level units lack coffeemakers and kettles. At the heart of the hotel is a gorgeous lagoon pool with a waterfall feature and lots of sunbeds, and guests are free to take advantage of the property’s on-site Beach Club, which features a saltwater pool and an elegant restaurant, not to mention loungers, Bali beds, and spectacular sea views. While children are welcome and the hotel gets lots of families, there are certainly fewer facilities for little ones than at other comparable properties, such as Hotel Suite Villa Maria nearby.

      Beautiful white-stucco hotel with large central pool area filled with palm trees and a fountain

      Hotel Jardin Tropical is housed in a gorgeous white-stucco hacienda-style building with lots of marble in the common areas. It was designed by acclaimed architect Melvin Villarroel in 1986, who also designed the Sheraton La Caleta up the coast, albeit two decades later. The original owner who commissioned the structure was considering turning it into an apartment complex rather than a hotel, and a few units here are privately owned (but the hotel is hoping to buy them out).

      Guests pass under a huge wooden awning into the lovely, sleek, and cool lobby with a fountain at one end and a few round egg-style chairs, plus a smattering of potted plants alongside some white candles. The property’s piece de resistance is its huge outdoor centerpiece courtyard housing a gigantic lagoon pool complex with multitudes of towering palm trees and a powerful waterfall-style fountain that adds a solid element of white noise and acts as a screen between the pool and the restaurant terrace. The hotel attracts a solid mix of British, Belgian, Dutch, and German guests, including families and couples of all age groups.

      Location

      Around lots of shops and dining; 10 minutes on foot from two beaches

      Hotel Jardin Tropical is located in the southern part of Adeje in an area with lots of other hotels as well as a fair few shops and restaurants, including the outlet branch of popular Spanish clothing store Mango (a four-minute walk away). Puerto Colon Beach and Playa de el Bobo are each about 10 minutes away on foot. Siam Park and Siam Mall are a roughly three-minute drive from the hotel. Playa de las Americas is a five-minute drive or half-hour walk from the hotel, while Los Cristianos takes about seven minutes to reach by foot. Mount Teide and its surrounding national park take just over an hour to reach by car, while Masca Valley, known for its great trekking, is a 45-minute drive away. Tenerife South Airport is about 15 to 20 minutes away by car, depending on traffic, and can be accessed by bus 711 or bus 111 in about 50 minutes.

      Rooms

      Contemporary, elegant rooms and suites with marble bathrooms and balconies

      There’s only one type of room here — called Double Rooms — along with three categories of suites: Junior Suites, Suites, and Presidential Suites. Decor schemes are consistent across categories, with off-white walls (including cream papered accent walls), darkish wooden doors and furniture, and dark-teal accents in lampshades, bedrunners, and (in suite categories) sofas. Junior Suites follow an open plan, while the Suites and Presidential Suites have separate living rooms and bedrooms. 

      Standard amenities include mini-fridge, flat-screen TVs, safes (for a fee), and bathrobes, but only Junior Suite and higher-category rooms have coffee- and tea-making facilities and slippers. Bathrooms have predominantly marble tiling, double vanities, and shower/tub combos (although the hotel plans to switch over to walk-in showers in all rooms in late-2017), plus magnifying mirrors and hairdryers. All units with the exception of four of the Double Rooms have balconies, complete with wicker chairs, wrought-iron tables, and flower boxes filled.

      Features

      Gorgeous lagoon pool, multiple restaurants, excellent wellness facilities, and cliffside beach club

      The features at Jardin Tropical are impressive across the board, though what really stands out is the gorgeous pool, a sprawling lagoon-style construction flanked by clusters of towering palm trees with a waterfall fountain feature off to one side. Rows of lounge chairs and umbrellas are located at the far end (Bali beds for a fee), while the waterfall section — closer to the main building — provides a barrier between the pool and the terrace of the main restaurant. This eatery serves buffet-style breakfast and dinner, and though breakfast-only and half- and full-board packages are options, there’s no all-inclusive service.

      Other dining options include the informal Los Cucuruchos Restaurant next to the pool, a pool bar, lobby bar, and cocktail bar — Cafe de Paris — with a variety of live music and performance in the evenings. There’s also a coast-facing Beach Club connected to the hotel, where the fine-dining Las Rocas Restaurant is located. Because of regulations banning private beaches in Spain, access to the club is open to outside guests (for a fee), but those staying at the hotel get freebies such as lounge chairs. While Las Rocas is certainly a big draw, many people come to the club to swim in its gorgeous meandering saltwater lagoon pool that’s refilled with water sourced from 30 meters deep every morning to keep it clean. The views here certainly help draw in hotel guests and outsiders alike, and while its cliffside location means you can’t get into the sea, the coastal views are pretty spectacular. 

      The hotel offers lots of wellness facilities, including a small spa with a whirlpool hot tub, steam room, and sauna, plus massages and other treatments. The 24-hour fitness center here is particularly striking, with LifeFitness cardio and weight-training equipment. Classes for active guests include Zumba, water aerobics, yoga, and Pilates, along with table tennis. Other amenities include a lending library and a small kids’ club, although it’s only open during summer and school holidays and even then, only in the afternoon and early evenings. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel and there’s free (but limited) on-site parking available on a first-come, first-served basis.

      Hotel Jardín Tropical Review, Costa Adeje, Tenerife

      By
      Joe Cawley,

      Destination Expert

      Location

      8
      /
      10

      The Jardin Tropical offers oceanfront serenity surrounded by the hullaballoo of commerce in Costa Adeje. Whale- and dolphin-watching boat trips leave from Puerto Colón, a five-minute walk away, and the nearest sandy beach is a two-minute stroll. For families with teens and other exuberants, the neon lights of Playa de las Americas’ clubland are 20 minutes away on foot. There are also two golf courses within a 10-minute drive and transfers from Tenerife South airport take 15 minutes.

      Style and Character

      8
      /
      10

      Featuring lots of minaret-style towers and whitewashed curves, this Moorish structure arcs around a pretty pool area bedecked with thatched pagodas and towering palms. Turning its back on a frenzy of commerce, the only outlook is Atlantic blue while the pace is pure pedestrian. The interior gives off a similar laid-back, sub-tropical vibe dashed with a mish-mash of Andalusian tiling and Polynesian basketry.

      The hotel occupies that woolly space between four- and five-star. Perhaps only the size of rooms prohibits it from making the full leap. The staff are friendly and efficient, the appearance clean and tidy and the facilities comprehensive without being in your face. There are three outdoor pools, one of which is heated, plus a spa, an open-air gym facing the ocean, and a games room. Morning activities are offered for those with the get-up-and-go, but while I was there, lie-down-and-stay appeared to be the favoured occupation.

      Mikhail Schwartz

      At the top of Mount Monte above the city of Funchal stands a white three-storey building surrounded by an exotic park. This is the Tropical Garden, Monte Palace and Museum. The harmonious beauty of the charming corner of Madeira has been created by several generations of its owners. Many consider these gardens to be the most beautiful on the island.

      Jardim Tropical Monte Palace is located at an altitude of 550 m above sea level: a magnificent park of 7 hectares extends in steps along the slope of Monte. A cable car is laid here from the center of Funchal, a bus runs.

      Oriental Gardens

      The last owner of the estate, Jose Berardo, traveled around Japan and China and was fascinated by the original culture of these countries. Based on his impressions, he created the East Garden in the northern part of the park. Buddhist statues are installed here, Chinese lanterns are burning, benches and pavilions are stylized as pagodas. Palm trees, bamboo and ferns grow; reservoirs with a complex water purification system, with islands, waterfalls, and decorative bridges are equipped. The artificial ponds are home to colorful Koi.

      Central lake

      Australian black and Scandinavian white swans swim in the central lake, ducks and gray herons live. Peacocks walk along the garden paths, chickens of rare breeds roam. Most of the park is given over to the endemic flora of Madeira. Here grow dragon trees, euphorbia piscatoria, colorful orchids. The unique Madeira pigeon lives in the laurel thickets. The pride of the park’s botanical collection is rare cycads brought from South Africa.

      Azulejo pottery

      A large collection of azulejo pottery has been collected in the Monte garden. White-and-blue panels, stone arches and other architectural elements are located along the paths, set among the plants. This is the most important Portuguese collection: here are samples of ceramic artifacts of the 15th-20th centuries, including the plot panel “History of Portugal” by Alberto Cedron.

      The sculptural collection displayed in the garden includes marble statues of the 18th century, late medieval stone coats of arms, an antique bust of Emperor Hadrian, a collection of modern bronze sculptures by James Butler.

      Monte Palace Museum

      Monte Palace Museum is a modern exhibition space. On the lower level of the building, a collection of Mother Nature’s Secrets minerals from Africa, North America, Argentina, and Latin American countries is exhibited. The stones are presented at expositions that imitate the natural environment and outer space. The collection of precious minerals attracts special attention.

      On the top two floors – the exhibition “African Passion” – a collection of stone sculpture Zimbabwe (1966–69). The museum has a collection of 2,500 African statues acquired by José Berardo in 1981.

      Café and lookout

      While walking through the park, don’t miss the café located at the very bottom of the garden. Nearby there is a small terrace overlooking the city and the ocean. In the cafe itself, you can try Madeira wine for free.

      History of the Manor

      Monte Palace (photo: Emmanuel PARENT)

      The history of the Monte Manor began in the 18th century. An Englishman, Consul Charles Murray, having bought land to the south of the local church, founded the estate. In the 19th century, the new owner, Alfredo Guilherme Rodrigues, built a residence palace on the hill, modeled on the Rhine castles. He surrounded the building with a beautiful park and soon opened a hotel. The romantic resort residence “Monte Palace” began to attract Maderians and foreign guests. The place was cozy, secluded; from the hill there were spectacular views of Funchal Bay, the surrounding mountains and the city.

      After Alfredo’s death, the heirs did not want to take care of the hotel. In 1943 they handed over the property to the financial institution of Funchal. Since 1987, businessman Jose Rodrigues Berardo has become the new owner of the Monte estate. From that moment began the second life of the abandoned estate.

      Berardo opened his own fund, created the conditions for reconstruction by inviting famous architects and designers. He and his wife Karolina put a lot of effort into restoring the romantic oasis. The Monte Gardens have been derelict since 1945 years old. During the reconstruction, they were filled with exotic flora: Belgian azaleas and Scottish heather, South African cycads, and proteas. A zone of relict forests Laurisilva was created: ferns, laurels, flowering herbaceous plants.

      The Berardo Foundation operates in Monte Palace. The budget of the organization today is about 125 million euros. The founder hopes that his work will continue and the magnificent Monte Garden will never be abandoned again.

    Homer in the southwest.
    In the language of the Guanches – the ancient inhabitants of the island – Tenerife means “snowy
    mountain”. The island owes this name to the volcano Teide, thanks to which
    Tenerife is the highest island in the Atlantic Ocean.

    Unique climatic and natural features
    Tenerife ranks it among the most popular and attractive
    resorts of the world. Due to the even and mild climate, Tenerife is called the “island of
    eternal spring “(Isla de la Eterna Primavera). All year round this paradise
    the tropical corner is visited by thousands of tourists from all over the world.
    The nature of Tenerife is so rich and varied that the island
    can be compared to a miniature continent. Majestic mountain ranges and
    fertile valleys, dense tropical and subtropical forests and volcanic
    semi-deserts, mountain gorges and sand dunes – all the contrasts of nature are found
    reflected in the landscape of the island.

    Santa Cruz de Tenerife
    (Santa Cruz de Tenerife) – the capital of the island where it is located
    the main commercial centers and the largest stores. Get to the capital
    you can do it yourself without much effort. In the same part of the island
    near the city of San Andres, there is a beautiful beach Playa de Las
    Teresitas.

    For the coastline, along which hotels and tourist
    complexes, characterized by the alternation of vast open beaches of gold or
    black sand and rocky and precipitous areas forming
    grottoes and small bays.

    A dense network of tourist routes, adjacent both along the coastal and
    inland, mountainous areas of Tenerife, allows the traveler to see
    wonderfully beautiful natural corners and specially created unique
    parks, as well as visit picturesque villages and large resort centers
    islands.

    In the south of the island, colorful fields of solidified lava are impressive. The largest
    the tourist centers here are Los Cristianos (beach 1 km) and

    built relatively recently and are distinguished by the highest level
    technical equipment, comfort and service. And the most developed in the Canaries
    the entertainment industry does not let you get bored day or night.

    A little south of Las Americas is another major tourist center
    south of Tenerife – Los Cristianos . In fact, both resorts have long been
    merged together: a tourist uninitiated in administrative subtleties does not
    notice where one ends and the other begins. So it would be better
    call Los Cristianos the quiet area of ​​Las Americas. Los Cristianos, strong
    yielding in size to its neighbor, a more relaxed resort. Here much
    there are fewer entertainment facilities and the choice of hotels is not as large as in Las
    Americas.

    complex of 40 villas.

    The town of El Medano is located a little to the east
    airport, at the foot of the small mountain Montaña Roja. First of all, this
    the small resort is notable for the fact that the wind almost always blows here. Not
    the most obvious “plus” for most tourists, but an undeniable advantage

    Municipality of Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Spanish: Santa Cruz de Tenerife) is one of the two capitals of the Canary Islands and at the same time the capital of the province of Tenerife under the same name. The name of the city was given by the silver Holy Cross of the conquistadors, which in 149In 4, Alonso Fernandez de Lugo set up Añazo (Spanish Añazo) on the coast, after the Spaniards landed on Tenerife. More than 500 years have passed since then, but the cross is carefully preserved – you can see it in the National Museum of Tenerife.

    Today the population of the city is a little over 206 thousand people. In 2012, the city entered the top five places for human life on Earth.

    Sights and points of interest in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

    To get an idea of ​​the city, the first step is to take a sightseeing tour of the capital. In the itinerary, write down a visit to the Plaza of Spain, which was founded in 1929 and is adjacent to the historic fortress of San Cristobal. The square houses the Municipal Council of Tenerife. The decoration and main architectural element of the composition of Plaza de España is the Monument to the Fallen, which was erected here in 1944. The style of the monument clearly traces the style of the architecture of Italian fascism during the period of the dictatorship of Francisco Franco.

    From the Plaza de España in Santa Cruz, tourists go to get acquainted with the Square of the Presentation and the city’s promenade, Avenida Maritima. Near the embankment there is a sea commercial and fishing port, from where ferries go to the islands of the Canary archipelago – Lanzarote and Gran Canaria.

    Next, it is worth taking a walk along the alley Del Duque de Santa Elena, which was laid at the end of 1787. As conceived by the architects, the alley serves as a natural continuation of the square. Next to it is the building of the Municipal Council of the island, a large city entertainment center, a modern casino, and the building of the main building of the seaport.

    History of the capital of Tenerife

    The city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife was founded in the 15th century on the site where the first Spaniards landed. They were far from tourists, and pursued very specific goals. The empire needed to expand its own territories. A wooden cross was erected at the landing site of the Spaniards, and this became a historical place and a starting point in the growth of the future capital of the Canary Islands. Years passed and Santa Cruz turned from a small port town into a modern metropolis, with many narrow streets in the old center, large squares and green park areas. And of course with gorgeous beaches and developed tourist infrastructure.

    The most port city of the island

    Even the conquistadors noted the favorable geopolitical position of the future capital of the island, in their time Santa Cruz de Tenerife became the most important port. Moreover, in our time it is considered the third largest and most important port in Spain. It is an important logistics hub in transcontinental trade routes, connecting Europe with Africa and America. Every day in the port of Santa Cruz you can see ships flying the flags of various countries of the world. Small tourist ferries, as well as giant ocean liners, also stop here.

    Attractions Santa Cruz de Tenerife

    Of course, the capital of Tenerife does not reach the title of a metropolis: the whole city can be easily walked. Let’s take a walk through the very center of the city and learn about the main attractions of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. All of them are concentrated mainly near the Plaza de España. The central place on the Plaza de España is occupied by a memorial in memory of the bloody Civil War of 36-39 of the last century. Not far from the square is the Church of St. Francis, built in the 17th century. Another of the attractions of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is worth paying attention to the church of Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Concepción, dating from the 16th century. Inside it is stored the same wooden cross erected by the first Spanish settlers, and this is not only a symbol of the capital, but of all the Canary Islands. Walking to Plaza Candelaria, you will reach the main pedestrian street of the capital – Calle Castillo. It is full of tourist and commercial life with shops, restaurants and cafes. Nearby is the central market of the city: Mercado de Nuestra señora de Africa. Here you can buy fresh products for dinner or try ready meals. Despite the fact that it is far to the east, local sellers are not averse to haggling.

    Museums of the capital of Tenerife

    If you have a free moment, be sure to visit the Museum of Archeology and Anthropology. Here is a unique collection of household items of the Guanches – the indigenous population of the Canary Islands. These include mummies found in the caves of the island, tools for agriculture, weapons, household items, household utensils, jewelry and much more. From the weapons of the Guanches, let’s move on to more recent times and look at the collection presented at the Military Museum of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Armor, weapons from the time of the conquistadors and more modern types of weapons. The museum also has a truly unique specimen: according to legend, it is here that the cannon is located, from which the hand of the famous Admiral Nelson was torn off by a shot. Whoever comes to the Canary Islands with a sword will be left without a hand. We will move from weapons to the world of art and go to the Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Nature. Each of them has something to see and make an impression of the cultural life of the island, as well as the flora and fauna.

    Modern symbols of the city

    Of course, this is a little strange, but from this even more mysterious and attractive building of the Opera Auditorio Tenerife, built in 2003. The Canarian twin towers look interesting, reaching more than 100 meters into the sky. Out of time in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, another symbol is the largest park in the entire archipelago – Garcia Sanabria. Its area is more than 67 thousand square meters. m. True, I must say that the capital of Tenerife is a very green city in itself. Trees grow on every street in the city.

    Carnival de Tenerife

    Once a year, in February or March, the capital of Tenerife hosts the carnival, which is considered one of the largest and most colorful in Europe. Residents of all the islands and Europeans come to Santa Cruz especially for the holiday, and not just to see the action, but also to take an active part in it. At first glance, it seems that the carnival is a fun and unpretentious pastime, but in fact, preparations for it take many months. The holiday begins with the choice of the carnival queen, after which the traditional parade of horses takes place, and therefore the most stormy fun begins. Tenerife Carnival is even called the little Rio for the similarity of colors and atmosphere. But it is worth saying that the Brazilian carnival – Canary, is inferior in scale.

    Beach capital

    East of the capital is located where the most popular and largest beach of this area of ​​the island is located. Tourists from Europe and the inhabitants of the islands come here to bask in the sun, basking on the white sand. By the way, the sand here is real – from the Sahara desert. In 1973, it was brought here in incredible quantities.
    There are several diving clubs in the suburbs of the capital, and dives are designed for both beginners and seasoned divers. The underwater landscape is very beautiful and rich: coral reefs, underwater caves and even a real sunken ship. But it’s better not to go there, as local underwater inhabitants have been living there for a long time: sharks, rays and barracudas.

    In the vicinity of the capital

    The capital of the Canary Islands is also the starting point for various tourist routes. From here, a journey starts for everyone who wants to conquer the highest point of Anaga – a mountain range, at the foot of which the village of San Andres is located.

    History of the port

    Since the arrival of the conqueror and commander Javier Alónso Fernández de Lugo, the port has become a connecting sea route for Tenerife. Javier Alonso, at the time of the conquest, chose this bay as the most suitable and convenient place; and after the place was secured, it was made into a defensive fort in order to prevent any attempt at attack. Thus, this defensive stronghold played a decisive role during the battle with the ancient inhabitants of the Guanches, and in the future, from the attacks of pirates and various invaders.

    The port began to emerge on a small beach called “La Carniceria” (La Carnicería – butcher’s shop), next to the Santos Gorge (Spanish: Santos) with an adjacent small bay “Blas Dias” (Blas Díaz), which overlooked several meters into the ocean and served as protection from the waves. Many residents called this place “La Caletilla” (La Caletilla – cove), where local fishermen unloaded their catch and moored boats. Initially, the location and security of the bay suited everyone, but over time, there was an increase in boats, the development of trade, and soon the question of expanding the pier and its safety arose.

    In 1526, on the orders of Juan de Aguirre, the Tenerife City Council asked for financial assistance from the Royal Court. Receiving a positive response, the first foundation is laid for the construction of a real port, with its further subsidies.

    During construction, many new problems arise, one of them: adverse weather conditions, a strong storm in 1551, 1585 and 1600, entail a change in the reconstruction plan, the creation of additional fences, breakwaters and, of course, an increase in the cost of the project. After all, you need to make sure that all ships are safe, even during strong winds and hurricanes.

    Despite the fact that the sea pier where the defensive fortress was located had good security, the port still does not receive overwhelming trade, although it was proclaimed by the Municipal Council – “Main”. This happened due to the fact that the ports in the cities of Garachico and La Orotava took over a lot of commercial activity, since the humid northern climate of Tenerife gave more harvest and winemaking, and the close accessibility from production to sea docks made the choice obvious.

    Santa Cruz Port Fortress

    Following the expansion of the seaport and trade, in 1575 the Legislature of the city of San Cristobal de La Laguna decides to build a fortress, which will be named after the name of the city itself “San Cristobal” or Saint Christopher. Two years later, on January 20, 1577, she enters military service to protect the coastline.

    Italian military engineer Leonardo Torriani (Leonardo Torriani 1559 – 1628) visited the island at the end of the 16th century and recommended that the monarch build two more bastions to strengthen the coast, which should be placed in adjacent areas.

    With the arrival of Major General Francisco de Andía, Torriani’s recommendations are carried out, and it is decided to build the Paso Alto Fortress in the La Alegria area in order to improve the defense of the distant approaches. The idea was carried out in 1625 and would later play a decisive role in the defense and significant damage to the English army of Admiral Robert Blake on April 30, 1657 during the attack on Tenerife.

    After 16 years, the third coastal tower “San Juan” (Spanish: San Juan) or “Black Fortress” was born in the town of Caleta de Negros in 1641, closing almost the entire coastline of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which in the future will have to involuntarily participate in hostilities.

    Port during the 18th century

    During the 18th century there were several important key moments in the development of the port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

    Progress is being made at the level of internal communications, with which the movement of industrial goods from the northern part of the island is greatly facilitated.

    Accommodation Captaincy General of Santa Cruz.

    The emergence of a small bourgeois-commercial class associated with the port.

    A volcanic eruption in 1706 completely destroys the port of Garachico, which at that time had a very important commercial role in the trade on the island. These premises lead to the consideration of the port in Santa Cruz as the main trading center.

    The need to constantly improve the docks raises the question of deepening the wharf. In 1729, the military engineer Miguel Benito Herrán designed a plan for a new pier, in the place where the fortress of San Cristobal was located.

    Later in 1741, the commander of Don Andrés Bonito de Pignatelli entrusted the engineer Antonio La Rivière to work out the early project of Miguel Benito and the very next year La Rivière submitted his plan, which was studied in May 1742 in Madrid, but nevertheless, as in the first case, this project never saw the light of day.

    After 7 years, Commander Juan de Urbina tried to complete a new project for the marina. They sent out a request to influential merchants to make gifts and donations in order to speed up and facilitate the implementation of their plans. This time, engineers Francisco La Pierre and Manuel Hernández introduced a new design plan. A year later, construction begins, in the place where it was planned earlier, near the fortress of San Cristobal.

    However, later in 1755 a new storm caused severe defects in the breakwater. Merchants and port staff doubted the correctness of the project and offered to return to the old bay of La Caleta for all activities. Nevertheless, in 1784, Andrés Amat de Tortosa, in collaboration with Francisco Jacot, began repair work on the restoration, completing them in 1787.

    Construction of the gunpowder store

    The gunpowder store (Spanish: Casa de la Pólvora) was designed by the military engineer Francisco La Pierre in 1756 to store gunpowder, which was used by fortresses and gun batteries. The gunpowder store undoubtedly has a historical and architectural value in that its design is in excellent condition, which has survived to this day from the moment of construction. Located a few meters from the fortress of San Juan, between Tenerife Auditorium and Cesar Manrique Marine Park.

    The work was directed by the military engineer Francisco Gozar from 1756 until May 24, 1758. It is a rectangular building of 10 × 30 meters of masonry, covered with a barrel vault. He could store up to 3000 centners of gunpowder without moistening it, being close to the ocean. The building had a lightning rod. In 1779, the gunpowder storehouse was additionally surrounded by thick brick walls, carefully covering it from cannon shots from the sea, at the moment they are gone, destroyed.

    Abandoned in the 19th century and preserved as an exhibit of a bygone era.

    Building of the Customs House (Real Aduana)

    General Commander Bonito Pignatelli decided to establish in 1742 in the esplanade of the small bay “Blas Dias” the building of the Customs House, square in shape with two floors of lime mortar and wood, with decorative additions marble from Lanzarote. The building stood for almost two centuries, as a result it was demolished and built in its place of the Post – Telegraph.

    19th century

    Starting from the second half of the 19th century, the seaport flourished, until 1950 it became the economic axis of the island.
    Primarily based on the trade of cochineal (cochineal mealybug, natural red dye, carmine). The increasing demand for this product brings a good economic benefit from the Free Ports Law (Puertos Francos) passed in 1852.

    Colonial Routes: The geographical location of the Canary Islands has made this place a transit point for the European powers. In addition, this fact has contributed to the discovery of many European companies. Most of the companies, encouraged by the good results of future port projects, have led to an increase in the economic dynamism of the port. The Council of Merchants decided in 1845 to build a new wharf with new security measures. The project was entrusted to the landscaping technician Pedro Maffiotte, with the intention of increasing the traffic of ships and, consequently, trade.
    In 1846, the famous civil engineer Francisco Clavijo y Plo arrived on the island to design roads, canals and ports. Up to this point, all work was designed by military engineers.

    In 1852, the port of Santa Cruz was declared a major interest to meet all the new requirements of modern ports, which should have commercial contracting centers, warehouse areas, material unloading areas and other necessary services.

    The Clavijo plan was approved in 1864, which proposed a profound improvement in the port facilities of the capital, beginning reconstruction at the end of the 19th century, with the advent of new high-tech machines and technologies.

    Port in the 20th century

    At the beginning of the 20th century, in the lower rocky area called La Jurada, 50 tons of gunpowder and 65 kg of dynamite were spent in order to extract 300,000 tons of building material for a new offshore platform. Stones from this quarry went to the construction of the southern dam, which were delivered by rail. The first steam locomotive was brought to the island in 1890, soon to be joined by additional locomotives made by Henschel. One of these cars c 19It has been preserved for 24 years and can be found at the foot of the former quarry, near the TF-11 highway that goes to Las Teresitas beach.

    During the last century the port was very sensitive to economic influences and very vulnerable from the outside. One of the significant crises occurred in 1916, due to a severe reduction in international shipping and on the occasion of the activity of German submarines during the Second World War. After almost 40 years, since 1953, shipping has gradually recovered to the high level of previous years, which brings additional cash injections, development and support for the seaport of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

    Hello friends! We are starting to tell you about the cities of the island of Tenerife and the first will be its capital – Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Let’s find out the history of the city, how to get to it, get an idea of ​​the most interesting places worth visiting and develop a plan for visiting the capital for a tourist. Let’s get started!

    In order to get acquainted with the city in general terms, we will describe its history, known and written a thousand times on many sites. We will not deviate from traditions, the capital is the capital. The history of Santa Cruz (Spanish for Holy Cross), as such, begins as a small fishing village, which during the 16th century became an important port due to its location in the closed harbor of La Laguna. In the next century, the city becomes the administrative center, and in the following – the capital of the entire archipelago.

    It should be noted that since 1927 the city of Santa Cruz (Spanish: Santa Cruz de Tenerife) has not been the only capital of the Canary archipelago. Once every four years, the autonomous parliament changes its place of work and moves to the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spanish: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria) on the island of Gran Canaria.

    The capital is not a tourist resort at all and cannot boast of an abundance of hotels with beautiful swimming pools, because most tourists prefer the southern part of the island with a milder climate for recreation. But for Santa Cruz, you can allocate a day for excursions, shopping and just walking. In the article about the sights of Tenerife, we already wrote about interesting places in the capital that are worth seeing.

    For those who are interested in churches and temples

    Initially, a small chapel was built on the site of today’s temple, later on, the first temple in Tenerife was erected in its place and the first parish on the island was formed. The temple until 1638 was called the Church of the Holy Cross (Spanish: Santa Cruz), hence the name of the city. From the square where the temple is located, the construction of today’s capital began.

    Masonic Temple

    The Masonic Temple (Spanish: Templo Masónico de Santa Cruz de Tenerife) is a national architectural monument. The building has been closed for about 26 years, at the moment it is undergoing historical restoration and it will not be possible to get inside. The facade of the building is decorated with sphinxes, and under the roof of the building there is a bas-relief of the Masonic symbol “The All-Seeing Eye”.

    The symbol of the city and the most recognizable building with unusual architecture is the Auditorio de Tenerife Concert Hall (Spanish: Auditorio de Tenerife), which includes chamber and symphony halls. It was depicted on one of the postage stamps, and the acoustics of the hall is considered one of the best in the world.

    Very close to the Auditorio de Tenerife is the old fort of Castillo Negro (Spanish: Castillo Negro) or Castillo de San Juan (Spanish: Castillo de San Juan) – the castle of St. John the Baptist, which has historical significance for the city.

    Museums

    Museum of Fine Arts
    (Spanish: Museo Municipal De Bellas Artes). Several galleries with a wide variety of exhibits. There are also various exhibitions.

    The consecration of the entire square is made in the form of garlands with lamps that look like falling drops of water. An integral part of the square is the Avenue of the Duke of St. Helena (Spanish: Alameda del Duque de Santa Elena), planted with trees.

    Garcia Sanabria Park, Parque Garcia Sanabria

    Garcia Sanabria Park (Spanish: Parque Garcia Sanabria) is the city’s largest park, botanical garden and favorite meeting place for residents of the capital. There is also a flowerbed with the “Flower Clock” and alleys with sculptures of the last century, and in the central square with a fountain there are sculptures of the mayor Garcia Sanabria and Dr. Gigo, thanks to whom this park was created.

    Palmetum Park, Palmetum

    Park Botanical Garden Palmetum (Spanish: Palmetum) built on a former city dump today is a great place for walking and relaxing. About 400 species of palm trees from all over the world are grown in the park, many of which are on the verge of extinction. On the official website you can visit the park in 3-D mode
    .

    Shops & Shopping

    • Huge Santa Cruz Mall
    • Trading house El Corte Inglés (Spanish: El Corte Inglés)
    • Meridiano (Centro Comersial Meridiano) – classic shopping center with cinema
    • And they haven’t talked about Calle de Castillo yet, it is located not far from Plaza de España and Candelaria. This is a pedestrian street with many shops, among which you can find branded things. When planning walks in the capital and this street in particular, do not forget about the siesta, most shops and government offices are closed during the daytime from about 13:00 to 16:30 – 17:00.

    Entertainment in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

    However, every year, for two weeks in February, the Canarians forget about work and a measured lifestyle and plunge into the festive atmosphere of the carnival. A large number of tourists come to the capital, the streets are flooded with crowds of people, divided into two categories. The first is the official participants of the carnival: musicians, costumed dance and vocal groups, up to fifty groups and more than a hundred associations. The second group is ordinary spectators, city dwellers and tourists.

    • The Choice of the Carnival Queen (Spanish: Gala de Eleccion de la Reina) is a grandiose performance broadcast throughout the country.
    • The first procession is an open event called the heralding cavalcade (Spanish: Cabalgata Anunciadora), which announces the arrival of carnival in the city. Tickets for this procession are not needed, people will walk the streets of the city like a multi-colored snake and rejoice at the beginning of the holidays.
    • The main procession of the carnival is the key event of the holiday, which should not be missed. It will last more than four hours, end with fireworks and festivities until the morning.
    • Burial of the sardine (Spanish: Entierro de la Sardina) symbolizes the end of the carnival – an ironic procession with a huge cardboard stuffed sardine, which is burned on the square, in general, the Spanish “Shrovetide”.

    Most of the coast of Santa Cruz is occupied by the port and there is absolutely nowhere to swim. Therefore, Playa de las Teresitas (Spanish: Playa de las Teresitas), located a few kilometers from the capital in the town of San Andres, is considered urban. A barrier pier has been built along the beach, so there are practically no waves there and the water warms up faster.

    Playa de las Teresitas is the only beach on the island with golden sand brought from the Sahara in the 70s. The beach is wide, well-equipped and has a length of about 1200 meters. The only thing I don’t like there is the constant wind and fine sand in the face (perhaps we were so lucky with the weather).

    Port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife

    The port of the capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife is considered to be the largest port in Tenerife and the second largest port in Spain. It leads in terms of passenger traffic, is the largest fishing port in the Canary Islands, and thanks to it, communication is maintained not only with the rest of the islands of the Canary archipelago, but also with mainland Spain.

    Today I will tell you about the capital of the island of Tenerife – Santa Cruz de Tenerife and the sights of the city.

    You will learn how to get the most out of your trip in a short time.

    I visited Santa Cruz de Tenerife at the beginning of January. Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the city of eternal spring and the weather here, even in January, is simply excellent.

    Santa Cruz is a modern city where, in addition to great weather, you can get the best experience of the local gastronomy, visit both historical and modern monuments.

    In order to get acquainted with the main sights of the city, I recommend you to use the City Sightseeing service.

    In addition to the tour bus ride, the service also includes walking tours, and free admission to the local ethnographic museum, the Palmetum and tours of the Auditorio. And that’s not all – you can also request a ticket to travel to the historic capital of Tenerife – La Laguna and Las Teresitas beach.
