Spanish attractions have dominated a list of Europe’s top landmarks.

At the top of the Travellers' Choice 2013 rankings is Cordoba’s Great Cathedral and Mosque. The attraction is a World Heritage Site littered with impressive Renaissance and Moorish architecture. The Alcazar of Seville, which is Europe’s oldest royal palace still in use also makes the top ten, as does Granada’s 9th Century fortified palace, the Alhambra. Completing Spanish representation in the top ten is the 13th-century Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia. Gaudi’s stunning modern cathedral in Barcelona, the Sagrada Familia, was 12th.

Italy had three landmarks in the top ten, including St Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City, Rome. Angus Struthers, spokesman for TripAdvisor, which compiled the rankings, commented: “These awards honour the world's best attractions as decided by those who matter most: travellers themselves. Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor, said "To inspire travelers setting out on summer trips, TripAdvisor has named the top attractions across the globe based on the valuable feedback from millions worldwide.

"Honoring more than 1,200 winners, these remarkable sights offer enriching and entertaining experiences for travelers of all ages." Spain is one of the most accessible countries in Europe, with flights to all major destinations from a number of British airports, including Luton, Gatwick, Stanstead and Heathrow in London.
