A few days ago a website specializing in tourism "TripAdvisor" conducted a survey of its readers to make a list of the 15 most beautiful villages in Spain and the result of this particular ranking was published in Travel,  a national magazine considered one of the most prestigious publications in its field on the Internet.

Users not only  have rated the beauty of the locations selected and its rich artistic heritage, but also they have valued their preferences for hotels, restaurants and services.

And these are the 15 most voted villages as they have appeared in the ranking:

1) Ronda (Malaga)

2) Vejer de la Frontera (Cadiz)

3) Cangas de Onis (Asturias)

4) Altea (Alicante)

5) Albarracin (Teruel)

6) Ubeda (Jaen)

7) Hervas (Caceres)

8) Cudillero (Asturias)

9) Priego (Cordoba)

10) Laguardia (Alava)

11) Alquezar (Huesca)

12) Hondarribia (Guipuzcoa)

13) Chinchon (Madrid)

14) Ribadesella (Asturias)

15) Alcalá de Henares (Madrid)

Because of their medieval air, of bordering the Mediterranean or the Cantabrian Sea, of being isolated in the mountains..... all of them are very good reasons to have received the votes of the TripAdvisor users, to be considered and selected as the most beautiful villages in Spain.

Among these fifteen locations highlighted by the magazine Travel, four are Andalusian (Ronda, Vejer de la Frontera,Úbeda and Priego), three are from Asturias (Cudillero,Cangas de Onis and Ribadesella), two from Aragón (Albarracin and Alquézar), and two are in Madrid (Chinchon and Alcala de Henares), completing the list with Altea (un Valencia district), Hervas (Extremadura), La Guardia (La Rioja) and Hondarribia (Basque Country).

And as it usually happens, the question with such rankings is: Are all of them the nicest villages in Spain? Are the nicest villages in Spain on that list? For instance, I wonder why there are not any villages from the Canary Islands or from Catalonian. So, definitevely, I should say: no, they are not, because it is always very hard to choose in a short list the best of anything, for me it is simply impossible. In fact, as for myself, I would add villages as: Torla (Huesca), Tossa de Mar (Gerona), Sanjenjo (Pontevedra), Cadaques or Besalú (Gerona), la Alberca (Salamanca), Frias (Burgos), ....... and many more indeed.

But anyway, what it is certain is that any of these 15 villages are worth visiting them, if you haven’t visited them yet!
