A:Of the more established western European tourist destinations, Spain remains among the more affordable. It’s also got plenty to offer for cyclists: mountains and coastline, cities and villages, and one of the lower population densities in crowded Europe. Try the Camino de Santiago, the famous pilgrimage route. Or pick a region: Catalonia lets you tap into the Pyrenees, the Costa Brava, and a rich artistic heritage; Andalucia, in the south, is home to the Sierra, flamenco, and centuries of Moorish history.
