278.041 pilgrims arrived to Santiago this year, considering just the ones who came walking a minimum of 100km. This is an excellent notice for all of us. No matter what is the reason, if it is a personal one or an spiritual one, the Camino is getting more popular among travelers these days that are looking for something different, for new old paths to follow, for meeting new friends. Even that 2016 was not a holy year in Santiago ( the past one was 2010 and the next one will be 2021) the 2016 became an historic year in number of pilgrims and the number is increasing every year over 6%. It was also a year of international consolidation of the Camino. With over 146 different nationalities, with Spainyards ( Over 55%) followed by Germans, US citizens, French , Portuguese, Irish, UK Citizens, Koreans,, Australians, brazilians, Canadians, Mexicans , Japaneses,....Congratulations to all and please spread the word of your experiences, the people you met and the landscapes, food, art and local people you discovered. Very proud of the Camino, that without a doubt is the best way to travel these days, same way as 1000 years ago.

Watching the clear sky of Madrid from the balcony of our office I can feel the warm season coming finally after a strong rainy April. In Andalusia the spring already arrived and yesterday they finished with the April Fair week in Sevilla.

I forgot to write about the Fallas, the Holy Week and its processions and about the April Fair, but I promise I will be back soon and talk about them

Here is a photo of the Royal Alcazares in Seville and the beauty of its gardens.These gardens and its palace were built by the Moors almost 1000 years ago and are a must to visit in Sevilla. Are located behind its Cathedral and the Santa Cruz Quarter.

Seville has much to see and unfortunately people do not spend much time there. Staying 3 nights in Seville for travellers with no rush is highly recommended. Besides enjoying one of our personal guided walking tours, where we will show you our favorite corners and flavours, we will suggest you plenty other activities that fullfill the rest of your time according to your personal tastes.

Over 20 years now, since we created our company with the goal to show Spain to visitors the best way we can, we learned t listen close to each single request upfront and then we learned to offer each one with what we will love to do. It is as simple as this. Our philosophy was clear, treat visitors as guests, listen closely and offer them what you will like to do as local. Our goal is to keep on running many more years meeting people from all over the world in Spain.

We promise that we will write interesting articles and add beautiful pictures of Spain. Bienvenidos!!

Summertime in Spain
Pretty much hot  these days in  Central Spain and  in Madrid. The city is almost empty and few locals are on the streets during the siesta time until night comes when the terraces and the summer festivals  bring the interest of locals and visitors. Two days ago in th news they told about the increase numbers of visitors to Spain this year, where they expect over 60 millions. This means that there are  several beach resort  areas  especially crowdy these days, where any  British citizen might  meet with his neighbor at the  beach. 
However this is not the type of travel we will suggest never and  thanks God we still have many hidden corners and off the beaten paths to follow that mostly go through the rich  historical  heritage and natural environments that are  empty and  you can feel the silence.
We will love to present you  once on a while some pictures of these  areas, while we will wait to hear from you to  build together a unique expereince and  an itinerary that will take you through those  magic places.
We are proud of had been offering  custom itineraries for  couples, families and  groups since  almost  20 years ago througout Spain, so please do not hesitate to contact us anytime.
We do promisse from now on to keep this G+ site "alive" with many more news coming and we do hope to be able to reach  with all  travel friends worldwide!
Sincerely,
Josu Camacho-Ole Spain Tours

Spain  welcomes every year over 50 million visitors, but most of them use to go to the same few places at the same time. If you want to  discover many hidden places inland Spain, enjoy peaceful landscapes, taste wonderful food and  rest  at unique resorts, we will be  very pleased to help you showing you what we as locals love  to.

As owner of Ole Spain Tours,  and as father of four kids I always wandered which routes and activities should be the best to  travel with your family in Spain. Want to share those with you all
