xmas in spain or is this a mistake?

Jump to last reply

thanks guys for all your help!
we are planning our family holiday for xmas time, and we thought of spain. we have been to barcelona already, so this quickie (10 day trip) would be madrid/granada/seville/cordoba. we would make sure dec 25th is a driving day, as many sights will be closed.
we are a family of 4, (kids 20 and 22) and are well travelled. the question is really is it a good destination over the winter holidays, given that it is not ideal weather, and much of the "atmosphere" of spain, the cafes, the wandering around etc will be limited due to the weather. it seems that we could do the trip for the same (or less) price that a caribbean resort or cruise, neither of which appeal to us in the least. our last 4 xmas trips have been India, South Africa and Egypt and Thailand(all warmer climates!)

should we wait and hope to do this part of spain another time (but kids getting older, hard to get everyone together) or just bite the bullet and do it??? Thoughts?
