I'm excited about my upcoming trip to Spain!

Jump to last reply

I went to Spain for Semana Santa last year, but for various reasons, the trip wasn't entirely successful. The main reason was that it rained 4 out of the 5 days we were in Sevilla, so they cancelled the processions. We did other things, of course, but I was disappointed to miss most of the processions.

I decided I'd give it another try, but this time I'd stay in Málaga for the entire week. I'm especially looking forward to seeing the Spanish Legion, who march on Maundy Thursday (the Thursday before Easter).

I thought I'd share my itinerary.

3/26 leave Spokane
3/27 arrive Madrid--wander around town, go to bed early
3/28 day trip to Aranjuez
3/29 train to Cuenca
3/30 Cuenca--hopefully an excursion to la Ciudad Encantada
3/31 early train to Madrid, then AVE to Málaga.
3/31--4/7 in Málaga with day trip to Nerja, also see the Alcazaba and Castillo de Gibrlfaro
4/7 flight to Barcelona
4/8 Barcelona-- cathedral at noon to see the Sardana, then hop/on--hop/off tour
4/9 " Monserrat in morning
4/10 " Girona on day trip
4/11 back to Madrid--see the national archeological museum
4/12 depart Madrid--overnight in Seattle
4/13 flight back to Spokane

I've been to most of these cities in the past--at least once, maybe twice or three times. Therefore I'm not spending as much time in any one city as I would have if they were new to me.

Any comments? Suggestions?
