Spain is somewhere to go back to, time and again, because just when you think you’ve gotten to know the country, you’ll learn there’s more to see. We spent some time in Barcelona and got to venture out to the nearby mountain ranges to get a glimpse of Montserrat, a monastery in a mountain. Months later, we found ourselves on cliffs and beaches in Spain’s Canary Islands, which are closer to Africa than they are to Europe. Ready for tapas, mountains, islands and art? Spain will keep surprising you.
