first trip to Spain - Madrid or Mallorca

Jump to last reply

I've gotten some great advice here and am coming back for more.

Basically, we are planning a fall 2015 trip to Spain (September/October) and are having trouble trying to decide between seeing either Mallorca or Madrid. We so far plan to see Barcelona, Seville, Granada and Cordoba. Trying to decide between Mallorca (for hiking, beaches, and beautiful scenery) or Madrid (stop at Merida for Roman sites, see Segovia, and a few sites in Madrid). This is our first trip to Spain and I'm not sure what to expect...While we do like cities, we also enjoy smaller towns/villages and seeing some countryside / scenery / landscapes. I hope this doesn't sound crazy, but I'm concerned that if we choose the Madrid for our itinerary, that we might get tired of all the cities. Mallorca looks like it'd be beautifully scenic but then I wonder if I'm crazy for not going and seeing more of the classic sites in Spain...any advice is very appreciated!
