Spain is one of the most family-friendly destinations in Europe. From the awe-inspiring architecture of Barcelona’s Parc Guell and The Sagrada Familia to the enticing cultural excursions in Madrid, you’ll see kids strolling the streets day and night here. And, the country caters to little ones of all ages – younger children can traverse Catalonia’s playgrounds or explore theme parks like Tibidabo, while teenagers with an interest in history can visit some of the country’s largest historical sites, among them The Prado in Madrid and The Alhambra in Granada. Northern cities offer a similar immersion in art and culture at the Guggenheim in Bilbao, and cooler temperatures in places like Pais Vasco, famous for its surfing and water sports. Or, escape the heat all together on mountain tops like the Pyrenees, perfect for family ski trips. Outside of Spain’s main peninsula, you can find beaches in Mallorca or the Canary Islands, where kids can splash in the crystal blue waters, explore quaint villages, and relax to the rhythm of swaying palm trees.
