COMMENTS ABOUT Spain:

Spain is a country with a captivating charm, offering exotic white sand beaches, intriguing historical cities, a vibrant nightlife, fantastic arts and crafts, fun festivals, natural beauty, amazing cuisine and more. Spain shares the Iberian Peninsula of western Europe with Portugal and a northern border with France. Its coastlines include shores on both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, with the Mediterranean shores being most popular for beach holidays. The Canary Islands off the north African coast belong to Spain as well, and are extraordinarily popular seaside resort destinations with great scuba diving.

Spain’s rich historical narrative includes occupation by the ancient Romans and a later Moorish conquest. Many of the country’s most notable historic architectural sites show these influences. The Alhambra overlooking Grenada is one such landmark and is the most visited attraction in Spain. Built in the 14th century by Nasrid sultans, it is a breathtakingly beautiful complex of palaces, fortress and gardens. The Mesquita of Cordoba is another Moorish architectural wonder that was later converted into a Roman Catholic cathedral, and it’s famous for its hundreds of columns and arches in the main hall. The Roman Aqueducts of Segovia are another ancient historic site in Spain, as is the fortress of El Escorial in the mountains of Sieera de Guadarrama, and the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

In addition to the many fascinating medieval castles, mosques and cathedrals that attract so many visitors, the beaches of the Wild Coast, Costa Brava, as well as those of The Canary Islands, La Concha beach in San Sebastian, and most especially, Ibiza. Ibiza is a Balearic Island that is world-renowned as one of Europe’s most popular party destinations. Summers on Ibiza are packed with music, dancing and drinking on the beaches and in the island’s many popular night clubs.

Water sports are always popular on Spain’s beaches, but outdoor enthusiasts can also enjoy downhill skiing in northern Spain, the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, hiking in Galicia and mountain climbing in Los Mallos and Siurana. And just about any time of year, there will be a festival to enjoy.

Guide Licensing Information for Spain

In Spain, the license received by the guide permits him or her to render their services only in the city, where the license is issued. And it’s not very easy to get such a license in the first place. The person has to be a citizen of Spain, have a degree in tourism, and take several exams to prove one’s knowledge and skills. Traditionally, it is believed that the control over such things as guide license isn’t very strict in Spain, and partially it is true. This country is such a popular destination with so many tourists and guides that proving one’s lack of license can be a rather demanding task. However, if such a guide gets caught by the authorities, serious fines will follow. 

If a foreign citizen wishes to become a guide in Spain, he or she will have to obtain a working visa, living permit and Foreign Affairs Ministry’s permit. The requirements may vary depending on region. 

The advantages of being a licensed guide are apparent. By having a license, the guide gains the possibility to provide guiding services through any museums and landmarks. Besides, the guide is able to pass any lines by just showing the license. And last but not the least, there aren’t as many guides speaking languages other than the usual European. So if you have skills in different languages, becoming a licensed guide in Spain may become a rather promising career opportunity.
