Spring is coming which means Spain is slowly turning white and pink thanks to almond blossoms. We’ve listed the seven most beautiful places with almond blossoms below. And no, they are not all on the Spanish mainland.

Many believe March and April are the best month to experience the almond blossoms in full bloom. However, in recent years Spain has proven time and again that in February, and sometimes even in January,  you will find beautiful pictures of fields full of blossom. The Spanish newspaper El Confidencial, in collaboration with tour operator Civitatis, lists the most beautiful fields blooming with blossoms.

Quinta de los Molinos Park (Madrid)

Located in Madrid, the park Quinta de los Molinos is full of blossom. This is evident from the many TikTok videos recorded there. Therefore, the best pictures can be taken from Calle Alcalá and Calle Miami.

Villalpardo (Cuenca)

Just under three hours’ drive from Madrid is the municipality of Villalpardo in the province of Cuenca. Here you can see extensive fields which often bloom from February.

Garrovillas de Alconétar (Cáceres)

This old village in the Spanish province of Cáceres has just over 2,000 inhabitants. Besides the fact that this village has a considerable historical-artistic value, the most beautiful almond blossoms in Spain can be viewed here. Every year, the traditional festival “Muestra del Almendro en Flor” celebrates the flowering of the almond blossoms.

Loarre (Huesca)

At the foot of the Pyrenees, one of the best preserved remains of Romanesque architecture – the ruins of the castle of Loarre – is evident. Here, in front of the castle, are the most beautiful blossoms, which provide unique pictures. This place attracts many visitors every year.

Valle del Pop (Alicante)

One of the best-known products from Alicante is nougat, a key ingredient of which is almonds. Therefore, it is not surprising to find thousands of almond blossoms in Alicante. One of the best places to enjoy this and take the most beautiful pictures is the Valle del Pop.

Santiago del Teide (Tenerife)

Almond blossoms grow abundantly on the Canary Islands thanks to the warm temperatures. And because it is often so warm here, these almond blossoms are one of the first in Spain to bloom. In the municipality of Santiago del Teide, entire fields are full with Mount Teide in the background. If that doesn’t produce beautiful pictures…

Sierra de Tramontana (Mallorca)

Almonds are also typically traditional products in Mallorca. The islanders of this island characterise the end of winter and the beginning of spring here with the expression “nieve mallorquina” (Mallorcan snow) – as this is te period when the almond blossoms around Sierra de Tramontana start to bloom.
