Viajas norte y ves Santiago Bernabéu In Spain bullfighting is considered a fine art.
It can be traced back to 2000 BC.
Unlike domestic bulls, these bulls do not have to be trained to charge nor are they starved or tortured to make them savage. The animals selected for the corrida are allowed to live a year longer than those assigned to the slaughterhouse. Bulls to be fought by novilleros (beginners) are supposed to be three years old and those fought by full matadors are supposed to be at least four.

The top right represents Leon. The bottom right represents Navarre and the bottom left represents Aragon. The two columns represents the Pillars of Hercules. The columns bear the imperial motto "Plus Ultra" which means further beyond; referring to Spanish lands beyong Europe. El Fin It is the highest capital in Europe
According to FIFA, Real Madrid FC is the world's most successful football club of the 20th century.
Their stadium is called Bernabéu, and is located in Chamartín in the North of Madrid.
The capacity is 85,000 spectators. Santiago Bernabéu Este estadio holds over 85,000 people Este estadio was built in 1947 Comida Tradicional Paella: It originated in the fields of a region called Valencia on the eastern coast of Spain. Today paella is made in every region of Spain, using just about any kind of ingredient that goes well with rice. There are as many versions of paella as there are cooks. It may contain chicken, pork, shellfish, fish, eel, squid, beans, peas, artichokes or peppers. Saffron, the spice that also turns the rice a wonderful golden color is an essential part of the dish. When visiting Spain try plain roast lamb (cordero asado) or milk-fed baby lamb (cordero lechal). Si yo pudiera ir allí, ¿qué haría? Spanish Pyrenees Mountain Range spans from the Cantabrian Sea to the Mediterranean Sea. The mountains spans over 450 km of land. Jamón serrano and jamón ibérico are dry-cured Spanish hams that are served in thin slices and are a typical Spanish food. Jamón serrano is named after the custom of drying the salted and cured ham in a shed high on the mountain (sierra in Spanish, or serrano when used to classify the ham). While jamón serrano is typically made from the Landrace white pig, jamón ibérico, which is much more expensive, is made from black Iberian pigs, and often called jamón de pata negra (black hoof). Despite their differences, both jamones are deliciously salty and savory examples of Spanish cuisine! Another traditional Spanish food, queso manchego is typically eaten together with jamón serrano or ibérico. Queso manchego is a sheep’s milk cheese from the La Mancha region of Spain. It is firm and buttery and a wonderful complement to many Spanish dishes. Tapas is a great Spanish food tradition composed of small dishes of different types of food, like appetizers or snacks. The dishes may be cold (jamón serrano, queso manchego, olives, etc.) or warm (tortilla española, meatballs, etc.) and can be served as bar food or as complete meals. It’s a great opportunity to taste a whole variety of flavors and dishes, so if you are ever in Spain make sure to order tapas and experience what the country has to offer! Another great typical Spanish food is the tortilla española. The tortilla is an omelette-like potato dish, fried in olive oil, and served as a tapa. It is a filling and flavorful dish (with the addition of chopped onions) and can be served in slices, warm or cold. Pulpo a la Gallega (Galician octopus) is Galicia's signature dish. The octopus is boiled and then garnished with paprika, rock salt and olive oil. The flavor is subtle and inoffensive but the texture might put some people off.
Octopus actually has two textures - the inner muscle is slightly chewy, while the exterior (where the suckers are) is very slippery. Gazpacho: Often described as a cold soup, I prefer to call it a 'liquid salad'. Tomato based, with cucumber, green pepper, garlic, olive oil and salt. Delicious in the summer. Spain covers over 492,503 square kilometers.

Sistema Central mountain range splits the Meseta Central into northern and southern subregions El Camino Del Rey- The most dangerous hike in the world! Natural Landmark In Navarra Spain I would love to see a bullfight. Although many people think it is cruel I think it would present much insight to the Spanish culture and traditions.
Visit a beach, and eat some of the local cuisine.
I especially want to try churros con chocolate and roast lamb! :)
...and of course I would visit at least one of the famous cathedrals. Visitas una playa Visitas a Catedral de Santa Eulalia The path was originally constructed in 1905 for workers of a hydro eletric damn set up in the cliffs of El Chorro.
