If I only have 12 days to tour around Spain, what are the places I should not miss going to? My name is Erik Matti. Me and my partner are going to Spain this March 30, 2012. I will be travelling from March 30 to April 21. My first stop will be Spain and then my last leg of trip will be in France. We were thinking of going around Spain for 12 days. We're landing in Barcelona and maybe spend 4 days there. I am looking at going to San Sebastian and then Madrid. From there I could take the train to Paris. But I also want to go to Valencia. But that would mean going to 4 places in Spain which could be tiring.
We are foodies and we'd like to visit tapas bars, pintxos. We'd also want to see a bullfight, maybe some cheesemaking factories, black pig farm, truffle hunting. Anything food and fun. I need advice. Because right now, I just want to visit every town and city in Spain that is listed on the map! And I know that's just not possible.
