Flamenco and fiestas, art and tapas

Something about Spain is just red hot even if it isn't summertime yet. The country's strategic position has meant an uninterrupted barrage of invaders during its history, and the culture is now the better for it. This was our first visit to any of Spain's coastal towns, and we drank up the experience faster than you can down a Sangria.
