Spain, on Europe's Iberian Peninsula, is really 17 autonomous regions, each with its own geography and culture. The capital, Madrid, is home to the Royal Palace 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.



A welcome arrival and no problem to get a mooring. A great little gem of a town and bay to visit.


A good place to stop for a couple of days and take the fast train into Barcelona.

Cabrera Island

We were unable to get an overnight mooring buoy even though we had booked online. We had to leave at sunset. Unfortunately all the forms were in Spanish.

Punta de Cala Pi

Beautiful location but difficult mooring if you don't get a mooring buoy.


We had a great time here in February. Its a great place to spend a few days and we promised to come back when it gets a little warmer.
