Hidden Gems in Spain

Jump to last reply

This is castlevisitor's daughter, but I'm a castlevisitor too!

I'm planning a long trip to Spain as my Congressional Award Gold Medal Exploration Project. I'm in my fourth year of college Spanish and this is more a cultural exploration than a vacation.
We like castles and historical sites - not really into shopping or beaches when we go overseas. We arrive in Madrid, train to Granada, visit various Andalucian towns, ending in Sevilla for a few days. From there we fly to Santiago de Compostela, drive along northern Spain through Leon, Bilbao, and Cardona to Catalonia where we end with several days in Barcelona.
We plan to visit many of the major sites: the Alhambra, Sevilla's Alcazar, Gaudi's works in Barcelona, and many UNESCO sites. I'm looking for recommendations of hidden gems in any of these areas that you've come across on your travels - things that may not be highlighted in the tour guides that I've been using like Fodor's, DK, Rick Steve's. Thank you for sharing your highlights!
