3 extra days in Spain - where to go

Jump to last reply

I'll be attending a conference in Seville in late Sept/early Oct and will have a few extra days before I fly home to do some sightseeing. The conference wraps up on a Thursday and I will likely fly home the following Monday, which leaves Friday-Sunday free. I'm looking for some ideas of where to spend this extra time.

The current plan is to fly in and out of Madrid and travel by train (or bus) in Spain, so wherever I go must be easily reached by train or bus. I don't have my plane tickets yet, so I could potentially fly home (to San Francisco) from a different city. I've been to Spain a few times before - Madrid, Leon, and walked part of the Camino de Santiago. My Spanish is decent, so that's not an impediment to travel. I'll be traveling by myself and am looking for a town or city with interesting architecture, places of historical significance, someplace with good food and friendly bars. I'm interested in a variety of things and really just want to see more of Spain. I know I could find plenty to do and see in Madrid for 3 days, but I want to take the opportunity to see another part of Spain.

I am considering just staying on in Seville for a couple of days after the conference, but I am open to other ideas as well. I will have a chance to see some of Seville in the afternoons and evenings during the conference. Toledo looks interesting. I've also thought about going somewhere on the coast, which I know nothing about - other than hearing about the craziness in the summer time with at the British tourists ;) I could happily spend a few days in the warm sunshine, and it will be October so I imagine the summer crowds will be gone.
