Travel Insurance for Spain

​Spain has recently become a hot travel destination for Indians. It was given a fillip after the success of the film 'Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara', starring Hrithik Roshan. Much of the movie was shot in Spain. The movie exposed an entire generation of Indians to the rich cultural landscape of Spain. 

Did you know, just like in India, the different regions of Spain also have their own native tongues? Spanish is by no means the lingua franca, though all Spaniards can speak Spanish. So in Catalan, you will find speaking in Catalan and in Bilbao and San Sebastian, Basque. Other major languages are Asturian, Galician, and Aragonese.

​Spain is known for its sunny weather and rich culture. Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Don't forget to visit Gaudi's Park Guell in Barcelona, a famous public park and also a World Heritage Site. The Spaniards are obsessed with food and wine, whether it be traditional Spanish food or food in an upscale Spanish restaurant. The Spanish love life and you can see glimpses of it in their culture and traditions, including the large number of festivals, some of which they bring to the streets.

There's a marked difference in how Spaniards in the North and South of the country live. Southern Spain is famous for its Mediterranean climate, flamenco dance, appetizers called tapas and hot dry weather. Very few people in Spain speak English but it doesn't mean you are going to have a bad time communicating with people here. The Spaniards are a very friendly people and most are willing to go out of their way to make a tourist feel home and welcome.
