8 Spanish Destinations to Inspire You


1. Spain - Andalucia (PDF Chapter) Lonely Planet

Travels in Andalucía will deposit you in places where you can peel off the region’s checkered history in dusty layers: edgy Granada, arty Málaga, vivacious Seville, sleepy Grazalema, rugged Ronda, brassy Marbella; places that lodge in your memory like collected souvenirs.


2. Spain - Cantabria & Asturias (PDF Chapter) Lonely Planet

The coastline of Cantabria & Asturias is a sequence of sheer cliffs, beautiful beaches and small fishing ports. Behind it, gorgeously green river valleys dotted with stone-built villages rise to the 2000m-plus mountain wall of the Cordillera Cantábrica.


3. Spain - Castilla Y Leon (PDF Chapter) New Lonely Planet

If you’re looking for a window on the Spanish soul, head to Castilla y León. This is Spain without the stereotypes, with vast plains, spectacular mountain peaks and evocative medieval towns.


4. Spain - Mallorca, Menorca & Ibiza (PDF Chapter) Lonely Planet

Although Ibiza and Mallorca suffer from bad press and mass tourism at its worst, it’s worth seeking out the islands’ infinity of small coves, fishing villages, sandy beaches, endless olive and almond groves and citrus orchards.


5. Spain - Santiago De Compostela & Galicia (PDF Chapter) Lonely Planet

Go beyond the magical medieval city of Santiago de Compostela to discover Galicia’s wild coastline and labyrinth of green valleys and hills dotted with half-forgotten, stone-built villages, twisting country lanes and aged monasteries.



6. Spain - Aragon (Chapter) Lonely Planet

Landlocked and little-known, Aragón is one of Spain’s most surprising regions, a place where Old Spain lives and breathes. All across Aragón, you’ll find numerous candidates for the title of Spain’s most beautiful village.



7. Spain - Catalonia (Chapter)

From metropolitan Barcelona spreads a land of such diversity that you could spend weeks discovering it. Catalonia, with the stunning cove beaches of the Costa Brava and the medieval city of Girona, is unlike any other part of Spain.



8. Spain - Basque Country, Navarra & La Rioja (Chapter) Lonely Planet

The Basque Country is a land of mountains, museums and art galleries, street parties, and arguably the best food in Spain. The Navarra and La Rioja region is awash with sunburst colours, dreamy landscapes, medieval monasteries and enticing wine towns.

3 Spain Big City Travel Guides | eBook Versions of Lonely Planet 


1. Spain - Valencia & Murcia (Chapter) Lonely Planet

Much of sun-scorched Valencia and Murcia remain wholly Spanish, despite the over-development and hordes of tourists. Beyond the coastal playgrounds is a rich interior where mountains buckle, castles crown hilltops and ancient villages slumber on.



2. Spain - Madrid (Chapter) Lonely Planet

No city on earth is more alive than Madrid, a beguiling place whose sheer energy carries a simple message: this city knows how to live. With bucket-loads of art, culture, music and food, Madrid has mastered the good life.



3. Spain - Barcelona (Chapter)

Barcelona is a mix of sunny Mediterranean charm and European urban style. The city bursts with art and architecture; Catalan cooking is among the country’s best; summer sun seekers fill the beaches; and the bars and clubs heave year-round.

Top 10 USA Destinations | eBook Versions of Lonely Planet


1. Washington, DC & the Capital Region (PDF Chapter) Lonely Planet

No matter your politics, it’s hard not to fall for the nation’s capital. Iconic monuments, vast (and free) museums and venerable restaurants serving cuisine from around the globe are just the beginning of the great DC experience.


2. Great Plains (PDF Chapter) New Lonely Planet

Amid the endless horizons and raw natural drama are surprises such as the Alpine beauty of the Black Hills and the legacy of Route 66. There are miles of sand dunes, lushly forested countryside, small towns and great cities to explore.


3. Great Lakes (PDF Chapter) Lonely Planet

Don’t be fooled by all the corn. Behind it lurk surfing beaches and Tibetan temples, car-free islands and the green-draped night-lights of the aurora borealis. The Great Lakes themselves are huge, like inland seas, offering beaches, dunes, resort towns and lighthouse-dotted scenery.


4. Alaska (PDF Chapter) Lonely Planet

Big, beautiful and wildly bountiful. Although far away, rurally isolated and very expensive, there are few places in the world with such grandeur and breathtaking beauty as Alaska.


5. Texas (Chapter) Lonely Planet

Cue the theme music, and make it something epic: Texas is as big and sweeping a state as can be imagined. If it were a country, it would be the 40th largest. And as big as it is geographically, it is equally large in people’s imaginations.


6. New England - Eastern USA - (Chapter)

New England may look small, but don’t let that fool you. The cities offer a vibrant mix of historical sites, chef-driven restaurants and Ivy League campuses while you’ll find age-old fishing villages and sandy beaches on the coast.


7. Florida (Chapter) Lonely Planet

Blessed with almost year-round sunshine, Florida is a hothouse orchid – a bold, sexy, semitropical peninsula edged with bone-white beaches, caressed by teal waters and clad in lurid neon sunsets.


8. Rocky Mountains (Chapter) Lonely Planet

The Rockies are nature on steroids, with rows of snow-capped peaks, rugged canyons and wild rivers running buckshot all over the Western states. Don’t miss the super-sized charms of Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain, Grand Teton and Glacier National Parks.


9. The Deep South - Eastern USA - (Chapter) Lonely Planet

More than any other part of the country, the South has an identity all its own - a musical way of speaking, a complicated political history and a pride in a shared culture that cuts across state lines.


10. Las Vegas & Nevada (Chapter) Lonely Planet

Mysterious and misunderstood, Nevada's a paradox, which makes packing tricky. Expect thrills aplenty for everyone, whether you're a nightclub aficionado, an adventure junkie, a kitsch connoisseur or a conspiracy theorist.
