If you’re looking for a fiesta this month, there is only one place to be!
World Cup fever reached boiling point in Spain on Sunday as this famous footballing nation became World Champions for the first time in their history. The celebrations will have a different twist across the country, and in a special Spanish edition of Deals of the Week, Skyscanner show you the best places to join in with the locals and celebrate Spain’s World Cup triumph!
Barcelona (from £121)
FC Barcelona had the largest number of players in the Spain World Cup team. The proud Catalonian capital certainly doesn’t have a shortage of bars and clubs either, and they will be jam-packed with revellers toasting their local heroes over the coming weeks.
Segovia (from £186)
Only 35 minutes north of Madrid by train, Segovia (a Celtic name meaning ‘castle’ or ‘fortress’) is a small city in the centre of Spain and hosts a flamenco festival until 24 July. There’s bound to be an extra spring in the step of the flamenco dancers this year.
Alicante (from £131)
An ever-popular tourist destination, this city in southern Spain’s Valencian region hosts the Paseo del Puerto festival of music, theatre and dance over the summer months. Alicante is a mecca for Madrileños who come here by train from the capital. Why not join them for a beer in one of the old town’s lively bars?
Seville (from £121)
The beating heart of Andalusia, Seville is more than 2,000 years old and many sites from the Moorish era still remain today. The city also has a fine recent tradition for ultra-modern, angular architecture, such as the Alamillo Bridge and the University Library along with some of the best nightlife in Spain.
Madrid (from £190)
The Spanish capital hosted the world’s biggest party on Sunday evening, and while things may be scaled down slightly now the honks of car horns may be extra-loud for some time yet. Head to the Txitu restaurant and New Garamond VIP nightclub where the players have been celebrating their success.
Ibiza (from £150)
This Balearic island needs no introduction as the world-class party capital of Spain, but for a taste of the old Ibiza, head out of town to chill with the locals in the shade of a traditional bar.
Palma (from £126)
With literally hundreds of beaches to choose from, visitors to Majorca are spoilt for choice. The Passejada dies Bou i Carro Triunfal celebration takes place in Valldemossa between 27 and 28 July, and includes a procession of bulls and carts and a huge feast.
