Things to do in Spain! Great wine and spectacular architect.

“Enthusiasm – this is the first vocabulary that will come to mind when people mention Spain. Whether it’s Madrid’s lively job-hopping market, Valencia’s crazy nightlife scene, or the flames of Flaming The woman’s crimson skirt, this vibrant country has an amazing lifestyle.” A typical Spanish day begins with a glimpse of countless pigeons from the Plaza de Catalunya in Barcelona. It stops in the sound of the street performer’s guitar trombone. At noon, enjoy the Mediterranean sunshine in the clear waters of the coast. Going to the Cava with a bubble, stepping on the sandals, sitting on the high stool next to the tavern in the Old Town, and then tapping a few Tapas, Scorpio, the atmosphere is so warm that I want to be with you. The Spaniards dance together!

 

Spain – This country on the Iberian Peninsula has a whole year of bright sunshine and never-ending romanticism. Not only does it have Cava sparkling wines that compete with French champagne, but also the Iberian raw ham, known as the world’s top savory, and “Tapas to Spain” is one of the dream lists of countless people. In the unknown villages in the south, the world’s largest olive oil production area is hidden, and there is a unique “Olive Oil Tasting” here!  

The famous Barcelona is not only a dream place for football fans, but also a city where Gaudí is a madman architect. It is also one of the places where architectural enthusiasts must go. The city, with its countless arts, also boasts one of the three Picasso museums in the world, with countless originals from manuscripts to oil paintings.

 

 

Next, we’ve listed a list of the five things that Spain has to do!

 

1. Sit on the slopes of Cava Winery and bring a few slices of Spanish raw ham Tapas
 
In the Penedes region, not far from Barcelona, there are countless wineries located in the valley. Huge floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the entire vineyard, and there is a luxurious wine cellar tasting room underneath. There are two wine experiences that you can’t miss. One is to visit the wealthy Spanish wine giant: Torres Winery, and the second is to experience the unique Cava winery in Spain: the fairytale dreamy Frexienet winery. 

Torres Winery
There are four different cheeses on the table and matching wines. Torres wineries in the valley can try different wines and different cheese combinations in the year, drink an old dry red wine, and cut a hard state. Goat cheese, the aroma of black currant and the taste of chocolate come together. The sweet honey-scented liqueur finally chose the notorious blue cheese, which echoed each other and brought different taste feelings. 
One of the most peculiar experiences of vineyards looking out from a small train is the small train in the vineyard. From the moment you entered the door, you boarded a green train, passed through the vineyard, entered the underground wine cellar, and swept through the row of grape vines in the manor, smelling the unique grape aroma of the winemaking, and was inevitably This “cai da qi cun” design is a little shocking. 
Frexienet Winery
 In the fairytale Frexienet winery you can drink two different Spanish Cava cava. And about this unique Cava wine, it is time to popularize the little knowledge! 
In the cellar, you know the rows of wine waiting for the bottle on the wine rack. Cava is a wine that uses almost exactly the same way as champagne! but! Because the very business-minded Frenchman applied for the protection of the Champagne origin, the name “Champagne” in other places could no longer be used. So, if you want to find some cost-effective “champagne” next time, remember to check out this Cava wine cellar! 

Why is this winery “fairy”? Because its wine label is actually a super cute boy holding a bottle, it has been used from a few decades ago, with a strong sense of time. The decoration is also very princess style, the colored tiles are covered with the main entrance of the winery, and several carriages transformed into wine bottles are parked outside.

Like the dream castle in the fairy tale, the main entrance of the winery is in the vineyard on the hillside of the winery. Cava and raw ham Tapas have been put on the table. For the first time in life, I have the authentic Spanish ham. It’s a great day to drink such a refreshing and delicious Cava!

2. Go to the world’s largest olive oil producing area for an “olive oil tasting”
Without a bottle of olive oil, the Spanish kitchen would not be complete. Olive oil is an integral part of Spanish cuisine and has a history of more than 3,000 years. One fact that people don’t know is that Spain is the world’s largest producer of olive oil!
The olive groves in the mountains are the most common landscape in the region. Spain produces half of the world’s olive oil production per year, far exceeding Italy and Greece. The annual production here is about 1.2 million tons, enough to fill about 400 standard swimming pools – of course, swimming in it may be too much. Spain’s olive oil production center is Hahn – accounting for 70% of Spain’s total production. Here, you can find different places, visit the factory that produces olive oil, and what is the difference between olive oil made from olives of different maturity?

 

 

 

Tasting different types of olive oil in the factory, it is surprising that they have more than one hundred kinds of olives, resulting in countless different flavors of olive oil. I won’t tell you that this olive oil tasting broke my consistent understanding of “oil.” It is said that when tasting wine, there will always be “aroma of red fruit”, “flower” or even “chocolate” and “cream”, and olive oil can do this! ?
The table is full of tasting cups, and every olive oil produced in this area smells different.
3. Go to the streets of the city in Barcelona and look for the crazy buildings hidden in it.
“Gaudi is a madman.” For those who don’t know Gaudi, I usually tell them. This madman created a building that was more than his time. The most famous Sagrada Familia was built in 1882 and has not yet been built. The exterior is densely packed with breathtaking sculptures, and the interior is based on the highly sophisticated logic of geometric order, creating a whimsical structure. 
Under the dazzling details, the Sagrada Familia, still surrounded by scaffolding, hides Gaudi’s advanced concepts in complex form design, and the way to feel the interior of the building is to climb the top of the tower and then A steep and winding spiral staircase went down. He often said that his inspiration comes from nature. The inner vault in the church is like a piece of light in the midday sun in a large forest.
The church’s interior is like a forest-like pillar. This is the world’s strangest church. It is both sacred and sci-fi, both classical and modern. 

Walking in the streets of Barcelona, you can see the traces of Gaudí’s stay everywhere. Whether it’s a street lamp or a fountain on the square, it’s his soul. If you are interested in experiencing an unusual Barcelona, there are also buildings in the city that should not be missed:

 

Casa Vicens Vincent House
This is Gaudi’s first important building, built for a wealthy family with a ceramic factory. This is clearly reflected in the façade containing various ceramic decorations, which can be seen in the exterior walls and in some rooms. 
Casa Milà Mila
Maybe I should call it “the house of dancing”? The undulating appearance distinguishes it from the adjacent building, one of Gaudí’s main residential buildings and one of the most imaginative houses in the history of architecture. The façade is a undulating stone that, together with a balcony forged with iron, shows the irregularities of the natural world. 
Park Güell Guell Park
This is a garden building with a range of dynamically designed buildings, including Gaudí’s house. The cylindrical hall and serpentine terrace are the most famous places in this park. 
Casa Battló Casa Batlló
The Casa Batlló is the result of a comprehensive restoration of an old traditional house built in 1877 in 1877. Gaudi used typical architectural elements of Catalan Art Nouveau, including ceramics, stone and wrought iron.
4. Sitting in the night tavern and watching a warm flamenco dance
The sweaty flamenco dancers on the pub stage come to Spain. Of course you can’t miss an authentic flamenco show. Corral de la Moreria – this restaurant with the Madrid Palace is very famous, not only for Michelin recommendations for many years. It is also one of the oldest Flamingo pubs in the Madrid region! It is also included in one of the 1000 must-see places recommended by The New York Times! 

In the evening, I walked into the entrance of the restaurant in the old city. A group of guests who booked a seat a few months ago were already dressed in formal attire, holding female partners and lined up at the door. The entrance to the door can be seen everywhere in the 18th and 19th centuries. Through the Arab buildings and street lamps on the restaurant door, it feels like going back to the past.

 

Exquisite appetizers set up our Tasting Menu, starting with the appetizers of traditional creamy tomato vegetables in Cordoba, Andalusia, tasting scallops with beef slices and almond soup with coconut milk, grilled wild salmon with truffles, served with The local white wine has a refreshing and clean aftertaste. 

It is said that in Europe, the Spaniards belong to the type of everything they eat. From the sea to the ground to the sky, the next dish is two kinds of cooking style pigeon meat, as well as soft and delicious lamb chops. At this time, the wine was naturally replaced with Rioja red wine with red meat.

 

Enjoy the most delicious flamenco show while enjoying a delicious dinner and fine wine. Listening to Seville singing, feeling the joy and joy of Rumba, who can not be moved by the dance steps of the dancers or the screams of the singers? 
It is said that here have received many famous figures such as world champions Ali, Nicole Kidman, and even the Spanish king is a guest! So, maybe I am sitting in front of a Spanish politician or a famous person? 
5. In the city of art, get close to Picasso’s original
Born in Spain, Picasso has had a glorious period of artistic creation in Barcelona. Located in the old quarter of Barcelona, this museum houses thousands of authentic works of this talented artist.
The Picasso Museum hidden in the alley is not what makes his world-famous representative works. It is the powerful foundation of the early exquisite paintings and the composition of several sketches. A pair of “Science and Charity” under X-rays shows the signs of modification before and after. From a few special calls, the works of young students who depict religious themes and nature have gradually turned into the styles that are now known to the world. 

The courtyard in the museum has a dialogue with Picasso in Picasso, which is one of the most important things I think of coming to Barcelona.
