    I am hopefully travelling to southern Spain in May and I had no idea the Caminito del Rey was in Southern Spain! I thought it was in the North! Thank you for clarifying that as I will be added that to our itinerary 🙂

      Hi Anna, yes Malaga is the second largest city in the region of Andalusia in Southern Spain and el Caminito del Rey is located in a village near Malaga. I hope you have a great time in Spain 🙂

    What an interesting, educational article about Spain! I have been to Spain a long time ago but I didn’t know about many of these! I think I’ll definitely need to visit Spain again. I am a foodie so I really love the BBQ photo!:-)

    These are super interesting, and I would REALLY enjoy zip lining over the border. Or participating in a tomato fight?! That’s like every kid’s food fight dreams come true lol. I also had no idea that the Holy Grail is located in Spain, and as I watch more Monty Python the only thing I want to do is go visit it! “I’m off to seek the holy grail!!!” This was a great idea to write about the things you can only experience in Spain instead of just a top places to see (since most of those lists you can do in other countries). So unique!

    Quite interesting. Before reading this article, I only knew about La Tomatina and Flamenco. No doubt I have so much to see in Spain now. And that pathway looks really scary. I would never go on that but will do the others for sure.

    First of all, you had me at the Holy grail! I’m far from being a religious person but I am into everything that Dan Brown has ever written about, so I’d like to go to Spain again to visit the Valencia cathedral. I’m lucky to have seen a live Flamenco show and I agree that it is a must when in Spain. It is nothing like the filmy versions shown in our movies. The scary pathway looks really scary indeed!

    What a great post about things you can do only in Spain. The photo of Caminito del Ray scares me just to look at it, I cannot imagine actually wanting to walk it myself, heck no! As for the bizarro Fiestia de Santa Marta de Ribarteme, that’s not like any festival I’ve heard of before! The border zipline experience looks a lot of fun.

    Although the Tomato Festivals sounds a lot of fun, I couldn’t help thinking how much waste it is playing tomatoes every year. Would it be more sustainable if they create something for meaningful like cooking festival using tomatoes only.
    I wish to visit Spain soon coz its been part of our Filipino culture.

      Oh right, I forgot to mention that all the tomatoes used in the festival are rotten tomatoes that aren’t eatable. If that wasn’t the case, I wouldn’t even mention this event in my blog posts 🙂

    These are some amazing facts about Spain. I’ve always wanted to participate in the tomato fight, it just sounds like a lot of fun. The zip line between Spain and Portugal also sounds unique. And now I know that the holy grail is in Spain too. Such fun facts to encourage exploration.

    These are some really unique experiences. That scary road did give me some goosebumps. And Holy grail has always got me curious. Would be lovely to figure something out at the church. I even found that festival of carrying the coffin of living people bizzare. An interesting read
