Spain, one of the largest countries in Western Europe, displays both rustic charm across its towns and cities as well as wild coastlines and impressive mountain ranges that dramatically alter the skylines. Magnificent architecture, whose patterns and colour leave you inspired, can be found in most urban areas and gives visitors a glance into the country’s history as one of the wealthiest empires in the 16th century. This is also reflected in the art and culture of the different regions, with some of the world’s best art museums nestled amid bustling cities.
With landscapes that range from forested coastlines, to towering rocky mountains, to lush lakes and rivers, this is a country that boasts an incredible array of wildlife. It is home to a number of endangered species that are increasingly the focus of conservationists. Volunteers in Spain can make the most of this by taking part in our marine conservation programmes year round.
