This past summer we spent three weeks traveling around northern Spain with our three year old son.  We’re always planning new trips, and we had started playing with this itinerary at least two years before.  We knew it was a real winner, with gorgeous beaches, dramatic mountains, world-class cities, and medieval villages.  Plus, we were confident we could easily get away from the tourist crowds and feel like we were charting our own path.

Here was our 3 week itinerary:

  • Barcelona: Hostal Poblenou for 3 nights
  • Cadaques: Hotel Ubaldo for 2 nights
  • Olot: Mas el Guitart for 2 nights
  • Girona: Bellmirall for 1 night 
  • Zaragoza: B& B Siesta for 2 nights
  • Tarazona: Hostal Santa Aguedo for 1 night
  • San Sebastian: Pension Altair for 3 nights
  • Bilbao: Iturrienea Ostatua for 2 nights
  • Poo de Llanes: Cuartamenteru Rural Hotel for 3 nights
  • Burgos: Silken Gran Teatro for 1 night
  • Madrid: Hotel Maydrit for 1 night

We spent the first week in Catalonia, and the first three days in Barcelona.  Over the next couple of weeks we’ll post about the cool places we stayed, the sights we saw, and the excellent times we had traveling from the Mediterranean Sea to the Picos de Europa.
