Spain 17 Regions Challenge

Spain is a diverse country sharing the Iberian Peninsula with Portugal at the western end of the Mediterranean Sea. It is the country with the third-largest number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, after Italy and China. It is considered an exotic country in Europe due to its friendly inhabitants, relaxed lifestyle, its cuisine, vibrant nightlife, and world-famous folklore and festivities. 

Divided into autonomous regions, each with their own government and often with an entirely different character, sometimes also different languages.
There are 15 regions on the Spanish mainland with the Balearic Islands and Canary islands bringing the total to 17. The goal of this challenge will be to experience each region and enjoy everything Spain has to offer!
