Spain is one of the most visited countries in the world. Its climate makes for the best vacations and its thousands of beaches provide ample opportunity to soak up the Mediterranean sun. Alongside the country's natural beauty, Spain is also a hive for intricate flea markets and astonishing architecture. Furthermore, after you’ve been once, it’s also the kind of country that will make you fall in love with it. But only if you adhere to its unique customs and values, that is.
