Instagram Worthy Spots in Spain from North to South

February 4, 2019
instagram worthy spots places spain instagrammable frigiliana nerja malaga pueblos bonitosSpain is full of photographic opportunities. From its monuments to its white washed villages, there's no shortage of Instagram material. On this post I'm going to show you the most Instagrammable places in Spain from north to south. Some are well-known landmarks in big cities, some are hidden gems I'm sure you haven't heard about. Get ready to grab your phone or camera and take the perfect pic.

This little village situated 7 km north of Nerja (a popular vacation spot near Malaga) has quickly become a favorite among tourists in the area. It's the only town in the region of Malaga included in the Pueblos Mas Bonitos de España (most beautiful villages in Spain) list. Frigiliana's charm lies in its beautiful streets where you can find white houses with colorful doors and bougainvillea, closeness to the beach and its location at the foot of a mountain range. The people who live here take good care of the village, walls seem to be recently painted, streets are immaculate, there are beautiful flower pots everywhere and restaurants look like they've been decorated by professionals.

Vejer de la Frontera
Vejer is one of the most famous pueblos blancos or white washed villages in Andalusia. It's in the region of Cadiz and it also made the Pueblos Mas Bonitos list. Roam around this charming town to see the most beautiful patios with lots of colorful potted plants and mudejar tiles. On the main square you will find this stunning fountain.

Plaza de España
Seville's #1 landmark. This has always been my favorite place in Spain. This beautiful plaza is covered in yellow and blue ceramic details. It's packed during the day so make sure you visit as early in the morning as you can. Apart from avoiding the crowds you will also be able to capture that golden morning glow in your photos.

If you think that you have to go all the way to the region of Provence in France to see lavender fields, I've got good news for you: you don't. Just one hour from Madrid you can find a little town called Brihuega in the region of Guadalajara. It is surrounded by the most amazing lavender fields and it organizes a Lavender Festival every July.

Campo de Criptana
There's a region in Spain where you can visit the windmills that Don Quixote chased. In Campo de Criptana and Consuegra you can find the best preserved windmills and you can learn their history and how they work.

La Granja de San Ildefonso
If Instagram had existed in the 18th century, royalty would have been the most followed influencers of the time. Royal palaces are highly instagrammable and this one is no exception. This beautiful 18th century palace is located 10km from Segovia and one hour drive from Madrid which makes it a perfect day trip from the capital of Spain.

Castrillo de los Polvazares
This magical place near my hometown Leon consists of stone houses and cobblestone streets. Castrillo was one of the most important places during the Spanish War of Independence, as it was the first village of the area where the Spanish troops rebelled against the French army. The village keeps its original architecture since the 16th century. Every single building is made of stone and the road is paved with stones too.

Beach of the Cathedrals
Playa de las Catedrales is a magnificent example of nature's power. The Atlantic tides are responsible for creating these unique arches and caves. The beach is located in Galicia, northwest of Spain. If you'd like to visit, bear in mind that you have to go when the tide is low. Otherwise it's all covered by turquoise water. Due to the amount of visitors, local authorities decided to restrict the number of people who can access it in order to protect it. So you have to get a free ticket online in advance.

This charming coastal town in the north of Spain is famous for its colorful houses along the sea promenade. They were constructed by the so-called Indianos (Spaniards who made a fortune in America) in the beginning of the 20th century. Nowadays most of them are hotels.

This is a small town in the heart of the Picos de Europa. A river runs through the town with a lovely small stone bridge crossing it. Stone houses with flower pots make it a wonderful place for photography enthusiasts.

Santander is consiered to be one of the most beautiful cities in Spain. It has been a popular summer holiday resort for Spaniards since the 19th century when king Alfonso XIII spent many summers at the impressive Palacio de la Magdalena.
