4 out of 25 landmarks in SpainTrip Advisor just released their 2013 Top Landmarks in the World, as voted by travelers. Out of the many countries to visit to see them all, you will be able to scratch the most amounts of them off the list by going to Spain. With 4 out of the top 25 locations being in Spain, you are in luck. Even better news is that 3 out of the 4 are located less than 2.5 hours’ drive from our self-catering holiday rental homes in La Cala de Mijas. So what are you waiting for? Make sure your next trip to Costa del Sol is not just another beach holiday. 

The best time to visit these fantastic landmarks is outside the high season. The summer can be just too hot to head exploring inland. You’ll be much more comfortable October through April, when the average temperature is at a more manageable level.
