We were lucky enough to spend almost a month is Spain.  After we saw my favorite city in the world (so far!) Barcelona, we headed to the north / west corner of the country for a house sit.  We were amazed at the huge difference between the two areas.  Barcelona was an incredible city with some of the best architectural eye candy I have seen.  Then in the north west scatter around the larger towns there were villages that you could tell had been there for an eternity.  One of my favorite towns was Santiago, which just had that Spanish feel, and the church in the middle of town was pretty impressive too!

I hope our Best of Spain Photo Essay bring out some of the diversity for you to see.
