Anyway, it never hurts to keep in mind that in Spain there are many magical places where you can breathe that kind of romanticism. We know, there is no Venice, nor a Paris, but these 9 places of Spain are as perfect destinations as the romantic Europe for a perfect getaway in Spain.
Located in the north of Menorca, Fornells still retains all the typical characteristics of a fishing village. Its traditional port is, in fact, one of the largest on the island. Much of the local activity revolves around it. White houses, some of the most beautiful landscapes of Menorca and a lot of peace, especially in the first months of the year, await travelers in Fornells. In addition, it should be known that in this town is elaborated what, they say, is the best lobster stew, the Menorcan dish par excellence.
‘I have looked everywhere for the dream city, and finally I have found it in Ronda… There is nothing more unexpected in Spain than this wild and mountainous city’, wrote the Czech poet Rainer Maria Rilke in his day. He was not the only writer to be captivated by the beauty of a place that, from any perspective, seems out of this world. As old as one can imagine, founded by the Celts and desired by all the cultures that came later, Ronda awaits couples with a historical proposal, ocher colors and unforgettable sunsets.
There are few places more romantic than the Costa Brava. Few places more romantic than Girona, in general, with its medieval villages and its unforgettable Romanesque. The bet in this case is Calella de Palafrugell, another traditional lovely fishing village. Its old town will conquer. Calella de Palafrugell is also located north of the natural site of Castell-Cap Roig, ideal for enjoying the outdoors with walks or bike rides.
If, on the other hand, you want to enjoy long street walks, perhaps you should look at Granada, which rests on the slopes of the Sierra Nevada. This city never ceases to amaze even if you have visited it before. Touring the Alhambra is always a great experience, with its royal palaces, courtyards, pools, fountains and orchards making the visitor feel in a dream of another era. Because of that air that surrounds it, Granada is one of the most romantic places in the Spanish geography.
If you are looking for a place that reminds you of Italy, perhaps the most romantic country in the world, then the bet should be Cudillero, which with its shapes and colors immediately transports you to the Cinque Terre that dazzle on the Italian coast. Cudillero, in any case, has nothing to envy to anyone. It is one of the most beautiful villages of the Asturian coast, a title that can be extended to the whole province. This place should be enjoyed calmly to enjoy its beaches, viewpoints and magical streets.
Declared a World Heritage Site, San Cristóbal de La Laguna is the largest city in Tenerife. Located in the interior of the island, it became the capital of the island, thus chosen with the aim of escaping the continuous attack of pirates. San Cristóbal de La Laguna will appeal, above all, to history lovers. Also those who wish to escape from the archetypes and typical trips of the Iberian Peninsula.
Maybe Albarracín is the most named Spanish village in lists of all kinds, but that is because it deserves that attention. Considered by many the most beautiful in Spain, this corner of Teruel surprises with its cobbled and steep streets, its reddish colors, its buildings of another era and the feeling that there is nothing fake, as impossible as it may seem that in the XXI century a town like this is preserved, in the environment, moreover, in which it is preserved.
The only inhabited island of the Valencian Community is an oasis of peace in the winter months, so it can be ideal to consider a trip as a couple. It has no more than fifty inhabitants and the entire surface can be covered in a single walk, so Tabarca should be chosen by those who, unlike what happens in Granada, do not need both movement and tranquility. It is a place to stay and rest, although you can also practice water sports such as diving and sailing the waters of the Mediterranean.
This place needs no introduction. The Ribeira Sacra deserves to be known as a whole. With the possibility of staying in Galician places as surprising as Belesar or Parada de Sil, this sacred land offers the opportunity to take long walks in the middle of nature while discovering historical temples and a particular culture settled between two provinces, Lugo and Ourense.
