Trip Report First trip to Spain - Part 1

Jump to last reply

Just returned from our first trip to Spain. Went to Zaragoza, Valladolid, Seville and Madrid with day trips to Cordoba and Toledo. Before I forget, wanted to post some highlights, comments and tips.

General Tips and Comments

Many places don’t take credit cards, so we used more cash than we expected Fortunately, there are lots of ATM machines. Be sure to call your credit card company before you leave to let them know you’ll be in Spain.

Museum hours are nonstandard and very unreliable. In Seville, we got a brochure from the tourist office that listed the Alcazar (their biggest attraction) hours incorrectly. Be sure to call or check the museum or site directly.

Electrical adapters – I checked in the Fodors Spain book and an independent online site – they both said that Spain took the standard European 2 prong round plugs. Since I had a voltage converter from U.S. to this prong type, I thought I was in good shape. Wrong. We stayed at four hotels in different parts of the country and they all had outlets that accepted round two prong plugs, but the holes for the plugs were recessed into a small circular area. My converter didn’t fit. Fortunately, three of the four hotels had adapters I could borrow.

Clothing. I had read online that Spanish people dress more conservatively than Americans and don’t generally wear T-shirts and sneakers. We found this to be generally true. However, since it was still relatively warm, I brought comfortable walking sandals. No other women wore sandals and most wore boots – even when it was sunny and 70 degrees! Oh well, so much for fitting in.

Zaragoza

Hotel Sauce – Really liked this place. It’s small and personal. Just a few blocks from the main plaza.

We went here for the Pilar festival. This was an interesting experience. We were among very few people in Zaragoza from outside Spain. They have a two different parades where people dressed in traditional costumes bring flowers or fruits to donate to the Virgin. In the evenings, there were many concerts and street entertainment at different locations. Can’t say much about the food, since it was so crowded, we were happy to get in anywhere.

Will try to post more later. If you have any questions, I'd be glad to answer them if I can.
