Help Planning Spain Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I was originally planning a whirlwind trip to Europe including many countries over 22 days. I've now changed my mind and would like to travel more slowly. I've instead dedicated the entire 22 days to one country - Spain. This does not include travel time.

What I would like help with is planning out what cities to go to, how long to spend, and in what order. Some things to note about me are: I like architecture, tourist/historical destinations, museums, and good food. I do not care for beaches, nightlife, or relaxation. I am also a relatively fast traveler.

Here are some cities I was considering:
Madrid - day trips to Toledo, Segovia, El Escorial/Avila, Cuenca, Aranjuez?, Alcala de Henares?
Barcelona - day trip to Tarragona?, day trip to Figueres?
Sevilla - day trip to Jerez de la Frontera/ Cadiz?
Cordoba
Granada
Bilbao
San Sebastian
Valencia
Salamanca
Santiago?
Burgos?
Ronda?

As you can see, I definitely need help narrowing down the list. If you could provide your insight into your experience with these cities, I would really appreciate it. I also really need help figuring out the best route between these cities. If there is a city very much out of the way or difficult to reach by train, I would be more willing to scrap it.
