What Spanish cities - where Castilian is spoken - do you love? And why?

Jump to last reply

Everyone in our family (husband, daughter, and myself) is currently studying/learning Spanish (Castilian). My husband and I started a series of non-credit courses at the local communtiy college last spring to prepare for a trip to Andalusia, which we took this past June 2013. We LOVED Andalusia!
I would like to go back, but husband and daughter want to go someplace different this year. We will be free to travel again in late March 2014.

I'm having a hard time deciding if I want to return to Spain and see a different region, or if I want to travel to Central or South America.

When I see others' vacation photos of Madrid, I have a hard time getting excited about it. Seems to be the same two pictures over and over again - the Royal Palace, and Retiro Park.
I know, from my experience with Seville and Granada, that a city can be much more than what the photos relate (although the first time I saw photos of Seville, I thought to myself, I MUST go there!) so wondering if there is something wonderful about Madrid that doesn't quite reveal itself in photos....
My husband and I do enjoy museums and would most likely enjoy El Prado and others...

For those of you who have traveled in Spain - Please tell me about the cities/places you enjoyed, and why.
(Barcelona is where I originally planned to book us, but the husband and daughter want to go someplace this time where they can practice their Castilian.)

Thank you!
