  • Description: Spain, on Europe's Iberian Peninsula, is really 17 autonomous regions, each with its own geography and culture. Spain has both a North Atlantic and Mediterranean coastline. The capital, Madrid, rocky Atlantic coast has many fishing ports and not many yacht harbours and is frequented by large and powerful swells. La Coruna, Bayone and Puerto Sherry are three of the most popular harbours for yachts on the Atlantic coast. The Mediterranean coastline is more gentle and forgiving and home to the Royal Palace many popular marinas including Almerimar and singular Prado museum, housing works by European masters, and Segovia to the north has a fairy-tale medieval castle and Roman aqueduct. Catalonia's capital, Barcelona, is defined by Antoni Gaudi's quirky modernist architecture, including the Sagrada Famlia basilica. Palma de Mallorca.
