My favourite memories of Spain: readers' travel tips

Nick Coghlan In Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Granada there were so many processions with lots of singing and music. Frankie, Spain Last summer, on a road trip around the Basque Country and Navarre, my girlfriend and I made an afternoon pit-stop at San Juan de Gaztelugatxe. The setting of the church atop the islet is like somethingfrom a fairytale and provides incredible views of the ancient Basque coastline (all the more satisfying for the steep hike to get there). The location was used as Dragonstone in Game ofThronesand, to my girlfriend’s embarrassment, I sang the theme tune the whole way up the 241 steps to the church ... Graham The village of Moclín in Granada province is a marvel. Gillian Homeri Jenny Galligan Sarah Shaw While we were staying at the delightful art centre retreat Flores del Camino, a beautifully restored traditional stone house in the medieval village of Castrillo de los Polvazares on the Camino de Santiago near Astorga, our friendly hosts Bertrand and Basia took us at dawn to the nearby 5,000-year-old petroglyphs of Maragateria, facing mount Teleno. Only at the moment thesun rises can the prehistoric markings of labyrinths and cup and rings be clearly seen carved on the surface of the rocks.
