Our Digital Analyst, Vanessa R., recently traveled through Lisbon, Seville & Madrid and was struck by one thing: the many bodies of water. From major rivers to expansive oceans, here are her favorite photos of Spain’s important waterways.
“Between our morning in Sintra and an afternoon in Cascais, we stopped for a moment at Praia do Guincho to admire Portugal’s beautiful coast.”
“Known as the ‘Venice of Seville,’ the Plaza de España is Seville’s largest pavilion, surrounded by a 500-meter canal and four bridges with ceramic balustrades.”
“Hidden in the grotto of the Alcázar, the Baths of Doña María de Padilla kept the king’s mistress cool in the summer.”
“The Guadalquivir River is one of Spain’s major waterways and runs through the very center of Seville. Both Columbus and Magellan sailed through the Guadalquivir during their historical voyages.”
“The medieval city of Toledo, Spain was built on the Tagus River and remains as charming as it was over 500 years ago.”
