"Food you must eat when you travel to Spain"
First and foremost, it's Spanish food.
Spain is known as a country of gastronomy and has many delicious dishes. Here are some dishes you should try when you visit Spain.
First of all, "bar".
A bar is a popular snack restaurant in Spain, where you can eat various kinds of tapas (small plates).
There are various standard tapas such as olives, fried squid, croquettes, uncured ham, omelets, and ajillo. Hot and cold, small to large tapas are abundant depending on the shop you go to.
By visiting bars, you can learn about the food culture that the locals in Spain eat on a daily basis.
I especially recommend the pintxos!
Pintxos are a type of tapas that are widely eaten mainly in the Basque region of Spain, and are served by skewering small pieces of bread with various ingredients.
Pintxos means "pointy things" in Spanish, and as the name suggests, pintxos are often skewered, and many of the dishes look gorgeous and have a strong presence.
Another attractive point is that Spanish sparkling wine is reasonably priced in Spain, so it is easy to enjoy with tapas.
In addition, there are many other delicious dishes such as paella, jamon serrano, Spanish omelette, ajillo with anchovies, churros eaten with chocolate, and Valencia oranges.
"A tour of the beautiful streets of Spain"
Spain has many beautiful townscapes, and there are many places where you can come into contact with historical buildings and art. Here are the must-see places on your trip to Spain.
"Barcelona" where Brott Barcelona's atelier is located.
Barcelona is home to Gaudi's famous "Sagrada Familia" and the beautiful seaside "Barceloneta district".
You can spend a luxurious time enjoying coffee while watching the sea.
In addition, there are many museums in Barcelona, including the world-famous Picasso Museum, the Miro Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
The history and science museums are also recommended.
Next is Granada in Andalusia. It is more than 800 km from Barcelona, so we recommend taking a flight or a train.
Granada is a city famous for its Alhambra Palace and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Granada's Alhambra, Generalife and Albaicin districts
The Alhambra Palace and the Generalife Villa are located in Granada in southern Spain and are said to be the pinnacle of medieval Islamic architecture. The royal palace is built around a courtyard called a patio with a pond and a fountain, creating a beautiful space. The Albayzin district, which retains the vestiges of the Islamic dynasty, still retains the characteristics of a Moorish town 500 years after the end of the Reconquista.
In addition, there are many beautiful cityscapes such as "Valencia" and "Madrid". Traveling to Spain and exploring beautiful architecture and art can be a wonderful experience.
Dog breeds native to Spain and how to spend time
There are various dog breeds in Spain, but breeds native to Spain include the Spanish Water Dog, the Bichon Frize, the Spanish Greyhound, the Ibizan Hound, and the Spanish Mastiff.
It's all about dog breeds that you don't see in Japan!
Spain has dog-friendly cafes and bars, restaurants with terrace seats, lodging facilities, parks and commercial facilities. Therefore, I think that many people feel free to go out with their dogs even for a short outing.
Dogs are allowed to enter Grell Park as long as they are on a leash.
Spain will approve a new animal welfare law in 2022.
Pet shops are prohibited from selling or displaying animals such as dogs, cats, and ferrets. Only authorized for sale by certified breeders with valid licenses.
There are many department stores and shops in Spain, and shopping for clothes and accessories with high design unique to Spain is one of the pleasures.
In particular, there are many apparel and accessory brands from Spain, so you can get everything from fast fashion to high-end brands at discounted prices.
There are many cosmetics brands and sweets from Spain, so it's a perfect place to stop by the department store on the last day of your trip and buy some souvenirs.
Tips for walking around Spain
Walking around the city during your trip to Spain is fun, but there are some things that you need to be aware of.
Of course, this is not limited to Spain, but there are pickpockets that target tourists when traveling abroad.
Always keep an eye on valuables such as bags.
In addition to safety, it is also important to pay attention to local customs and manners when walking in the streets of Spain.
It is important to pay respect to the culture and tradition of the country and land.
For example, in Spain, it is common to greet friends and acquaintances with a handshake or two kisses on both cheeks, and to look people in the eyes when greeting them at shops and restaurants.
Spain has so many attractions!
There are still more attractive places and cities, but I couldn't tell you in one article.
Delicious food, beautiful townscapes, and a wide variety of dog breeds make it worth visiting once to enjoy each attraction.
However, it is still quite far from Japan, so it is still difficult to go casually as an overseas travel destination.
In such a case, how about trying to feel the wind of Spain with Brott's collar and leash?
