    Your experiences?

    When and where did you go??

    What cities would you suggest going to? I have (an Australian) friend who has just left Barcelona, and has said it was exciting but a bit scary as she nearly got mugged!

    When would you say the best time is to visit?

    I'm always banging on about it but the north coats of Span is the best place I've been. Less crime and get away from the more 'downmarket' tourists. Mountain ranges, unspoilt coast, good food. Oviedo is worth going to, try San Vicente, Santander, Gijon etc. Haven't been to Galicia but that's worth doing too. Santiago de Compostela to(spelling?)

    I LOVE Spain, i've been going since I was a child, but sadly i'm not fluent in Spanish. My parents bought a house out there which we only use for holidays. And I LOVE Paella.

    I totally agree here (and you spelt Santiago de Compostela right as well xD)
    My family is originally from San Sebastian, which is close to the French border. I spend a few weeks a year there, and I can tell you it is one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever been to.
    Here's some info from Lonely Planet, which ranked the city third in its list of top-10 European seaside escapes

    Hi, there are so many different areas to visit that I would suggest taking at least a few weeks (if you can) and exploring a number of places so you can experience the different flavours of the country. The major cities such as Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, etc are great; vibrant, nice places to eat and go out and they have an all round fantastic vibe.

    I loved some of the towns around the big cities, such as Sitges, which is around half an hour from Barcelona. If you want to go to the major cities, they're great starting points from which to branch out and explore the surrounding areas. Are you planning a Spanish trip?

    I love Spain, Barcelona, like any big city can have its share of pickpockets and muggers, but its generally a safe country.

    I would recommend going in September or October, as the weather is still nice but not too hot.
