Spain’s official tourist board highlights the prettiest and most-loved streets in Spain. From the modern to the traditional, each street reflects a different element of Spanish culture.
Let’s take a look at Turespaña’s most-loved streets .
If you’re lucky enough to be in Spain right now, this is the time to see this pretty street in Córdoba. Draped with flowers and the tower rising in the distance, it is picture perfect.
The Carrera del Darro is one of the oldest streets in Granada, as well as one of the busiest due to its beauty and historical importance.
Gran Vía leads from Calle de Alcalá, close to Plaza de Cibeles, to Plaza de España. It is sometimes referred to as Spanish Broadway due to the number of theatres along its length.
Calle de la Compañía de Salamanca is a pedestrian street located in the historic centre of the city. Its name comes from the Society of Jesus, which in the 17th century settled in the Colegio del Espíritu Santo located on that street.
Calle Balborraz gave direct access to the city centre for travellers who crossed the Douro River by the Stone Bridge. As a result, many merchants and artisans set up there. A flat section ends at a bend and a steep slope leads pedestrians to the Plaza Mayor.
Rúa do Franco is the old town´s gastronomic street. Its restaurants continue the tradition of the medieval innkeepers who catered for pilgrims (Franks, a term used to denote any pilgrim from beyond the Pyrenees).
Calle Betis runs parallel to the course of the Guadalquivir river, opposite the city’s historic quarter. A high wall raises the street above the river. The buildings are painted different colours creating one of the city’s hallmarks.
Calle San Agustín, formerly Calle Real, is in the historic centre of San Cristóbal de La Laguna (Tenerife, Canary Islands) UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 1999.
One of Barcelona’s most important shopping and business areas, it contains celebrated pieces of architecture. Located in the central part of Eixample, stretching from Plaça Catalunya to Carrer Gran de Gràcia, it is possibly the most expensive street in Barcelona and in Spain.
Nicknamed the Golden Mile due to the number of designer stores along its length, trees shade the elegant avenue in the summer months. Restaurants and bars, or the stone benches offer great people watching spaces.
With its high walls, the street is shaded with captivating glimpses of sunlight. At the end of Calle del Ángel, is the horseshoe arch known as Arquillo del Judío. The street links the old Jewish Quarter to the town.
Sparkling in the winter months with Christmas lights, Calle Larios is a joy all year round. The wide pedestrianised street leads to the Plaza de la Constitución. Elegant buildings house the main high street shops.
