Acquiring an RV rental in Spain allows visitors to explore this jewel of the Iberian peninsula at their own pace. Ever since the medieval days, Spain has had an air of romance and mystery surrounding it. Once a world superpower, the Spanish still show off their passion and flair for the theatric. Visitors can take the country a bit at a time to satisfy whatever desires they may have using their RV rental in Spain. There's something for everyone in this country, but a lot of the tours that take you around to the highlight sites make you miss all the interesting things that happen behind the scenes. When you think about it, you probably miss out on more than 90% of what makes Spain unique. Campanda believes that you should have the power and freedom to explore as you wish and to this end we offer high quality RV rentals in Spain to our clients so that they can track the pull of their own adventurous spirit. Why follow the beaten path when you can write your own adventure?
Visitors that come to explore Spain can either come inland from Europe or by utilizing any of the numerous ferries to make landfall on the continent. It is a much better idea to wait until after making landfall in Spain to rent an RV. Although a couple people do take their RV's and drive into Spain with them through the landward borders, this is much harder for those who decide to come by sea. Some ferries have a maximum limit of weight that they can carry and campers can be way over the limit. Some of Campanda's partners offer airport pickup service that increases the convenience and makes it easier to get you on your road trip. Getting on the road as fast as possible means that you spend less time waiting for an RV drop-off or filling out forms. Campanda's excellent customer service ensures that you do less waiting and more exploring.
Routing through the Spanish Interior
Spain is a country that has fierce loyalties and a rich and colorful history stretching way back to its roots as separate kingdoms. The Royal Palace (El Palacio Real) in Madrid is worth seeing because of the history associated with it. This grand, awe-inspiring edifice is over 300 years old, having been constructed in the middle of the 18th century. Rulers of the Spanish Empire starting with King Carlos in the 1760's have utilized the Palace as their home during various times. The building and its surroundings offer a feeling of history simply because of the kind of people that once frequented the residence.
One of the more famous seasonal attractions is Pamplona's running of the bulls. Once every year between July 6th and the 14th, the Festival of San Fermin is celebrated in this sleepy town which comes to life with the festivities. The bulls of Pamplona run through the streets, usually accompanied by a number of people, and it’s a spectacular sight that has inspired people since the festival has been celebrated. Although it is a dangerous pastime to engage in, it is also a huge adrenaline rush and is something that a lot of thrill seekers have enjoyed for centuries. The cost of staying in a hotel in Pamplona during the Festival of San Fermin is exorbitant, but with an RV rental in Spain you can cut the cost of board down to a few dollars a day.
Although the Spanish have their own revered history, it should be remembered that they were once loyal subjects of Rome. In Segovia is a perfectly preserved aqueduct built by the Romans almost two thousand years ago. The Romans were commensurate architects and engineers and with a gentle slope built into their aqueduct system they could maintain the flow of water to the areas that needed it, effectively engineering the world's first plumbing and irrigation system that was artificially constructed. This ancient aqueduct is able to carry water from the Frio River all the way to Segovia, a grand total of 16 kilometers (10 miles) away. To show how well constructed these things are, Segovia still benefitted from the aqueducts as a means of getting water well into the 20th century.
One of the more impressive structures that make up Spain's past is the Alhambra. Part fortress, part garden, and part palace, the Alhambra is built on a plateau overlooking the ancient city of Granada. During the time of the Moorish occupation in the 14th century, the Nasrid sultans had the structure built as a means of establishing control in the area. After the Spanish retook Granada they preserved the building, seeing its usefulness in repelling a siege. Today the Alhambra is one of the most popular and famous tourist destinations that Spain has, a tribute to its multicultural history spanning over centuries.
Doing More with your RV Rental in Spain
While it's fun to see the sights that the tourist manuals mention it's far more fun to go off the beaten track and discover brand new sights. Journeying across the countryside allows you to experience Spain in a completely new way. It allows you to interact with the country more and is a much better way to actually experience what life is like within the rural areas of the Spanish countryside. Many people with an RV rental in Spain go to the scheduled camp sites for a couple nights to take advantage of the amenities, then set off on their own for a couple nights after which they return to the camp grounds again.
