A meeting point of culture, folklore, art, and entertainment, Spain is a main hub of Mediterranean tourism. Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia display the many influences that make up the Spanish culture. Andalusia boasts a strong tradition. The beaches disseminated along the mainland coast are home to some spectacular scenery and beauty. Just as amazing and unique are those found on the Balearic Islands of Menorca, Majorca, Ibiza, and Formentera. Among the top attractions of the Mediterranean, the Balearic Islands are a hip spot of nightlife for both young and adult travelers.
