1 - Attend the Clasico Match
The Clasico Match is to soccer what wrestlemania‘s main event is to wrestling. Two of the best soccer teams face each other for a straight electrifying ninety minutes. The match is held at least twice each year, once in Camp Nou Stadium, home of FC Barcelona, and the second time in Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, home of the royal club Real Madrid FC.
Both stadium can seat more than eighty thousand people at a time. You can only imagine the intensity in the sea of fans cheering for their teams throughout the game nonstop.
Tickets are available to purchase, but just like wrestlemania, they are expensive. However, considering the level at which they play, the intensity of the fans, the ticket are pretty cheap.
2 - Go Snow Skiing
If you are visiting Spain during the winter season, you may find a lot of snow to play around with. Also, knowing that Spain has a lot of mountains surrounding its cities and towns, there are a lot of fun activities to do and enjoy.
If you haven’t skied at all in your life, or even if you have mastered it, you will definitely get an adrenaline rush from the slide from the top of a Spanish mountain. Therefore, you should consider going to one of Spain snow activity resorts. They teach all ages, and they are all sizes.
There are 33 resorts spread around all of Spain, and all of them offer great training courses and provide all that is needed for your first time skiing adventure.
In addition to all of that, it is a great opportunity to stand on top a mountain and look down on Spain from an amazing point of view. Needless to mention that with snow all over the country, the sights are just a little bit more breathtaking.
3 - Run with the Bulls
You cannot think of Spain and its culture without mentioning their love for bull related activities. One of these is their traditional Running of the Bulls. It is a long standing Spanish heritage to create a path for bulls to run after people who are adventurous enough to stand in their way.
Pamplona Bull Run is the most famous in all of Spain. It actually has been televised live for over thirty years in a row on the national Spanish TV channel. It takes place during every morning, starting from the second day, of the San Fermin Festival, which is from the 6-14th July every year.
Not everyone, however, is allowed on the run. Participants must be eighteen of age, run in the same direction as the bulls without inciting them, cannot be under the influence of any substance such as alcohol. These rules are there to ensure the maximum safety for everyone involved.
4 - Dance & Sing the Flamenco
