Spain’s cheapest holiday destinations (Omio)
Granada in Spain’s southern Andalucia region topped the list as the cheapest destination in Europe with 60 free activities.
Although it isn’t free to enter, Granada’s Alhambra Palace is its primary attraction and is one of the best preserved palaces from the historic Islamic world.
A tourist ‘Emcgsy’ wrote on Tripadvisor: “More lovely than we imagined. Words don’t do it justice, don’t miss it! As wonderful as everyone said, go early.”
Tourists can visit the site’s accompanying museum, the Alhambra Museum, for free. It’s best to book in advance and arrive early as the incredible site gets very busy.
The team at Omio found that the average price for a dinner for two in Granada was just £44, a bargain. Tourists can wander the narrow streets of the historic Albaicin neighbourhood for free.
British tourists can get return flights from London to Granada for under £82 in July according to Skyscanner while tourists from other UK cities will need to use a connecting flight.
Valencia was ranked as Spain’s second cheapest city and is a great destination for Britons who want to combine city life with a beach break.
The Omio team found 55 free activities in Valencia and the price of dinner for two came in at an average of just £39.
Tourists can visit the terrifying Inquisition Museum, wander the Plaza de Espana and visit one of the city’s churches for free.
Malaga was the country’s fourth cheapest destination with a meal for two coming in at just £37 on average.
The city has plenty of attractions to keep tourists busy and has great connections to nearby beaches.
If Spain doesn’t appeal, travel experts say tourists could save hundreds by swapping a Spanish break for a cheaper alternative.
