5 off the beaten tourist track places to visit in Spain next year

Spain offers many fascinating attractions, including monuments, castles, ruins and beautiful, endless sandy beaches. The major cities like Barcelona and Madrid are always of interest to explore, with their museums, theatres and art galleries, but sometimes its good to explore the more unusual side of a country.

Some scary, others incredibly beautiful, the following are five of the more unusual attractions when travelling around in Spain. Sit back and enjoy the videos below, as well as the photo gallery showing images of each attraction.


Caminito Del Rey (The King's Little Pathway), El Chorro, near Malaga, Spain

Not for those with a fear of heights, this scary pathway was created in 1901 to give workers access to a new dam. Atlas Obscura reports that 20 years later, King Alfonso XIII used the pathway to inaugurate the dam, hence the name. Originally, there was a cable for visitors to clip onto but it wasn’t stable and people died between 1999 and 2000. In 2014, the pathway was fully renovated and is now safe to transverse. You will see beautiful scenery – just don’t look down!


Labyrinth Park of Horta, Barcelona

Barcelona has many attractions, but one lesser known site is the Parc del Laberint d’Horta – or Labyrinth Park of Horta. Work on the labyrinth and gardens started in 1791 on what was a portion of the wealthy Desvalls family’s private estate. There are beautiful terraces to explore, along with the central maze. Built of tall, manicured hedges, the labyrinth runs for 2,000 feet. Those who don’t get lost will find a statue of the Greek God of Love, Eros, right in the centre.
