Default What's Good with Spain?!?

my boyfriend and i are planning a trip to spain this summer...and our trip is now growing from just spain to amsterdam, paris and spain--i have never been to any of these places...he's never been to spain.
we both love to travel and are excited about this adventure, but we both can't seem to wrap our heads around spain.
we're both excited about barcelona...we'll see madrid...but what else do we want to see? there are only so many churches and museums you can see on a trip...
do we break it down by region? what's a good "homebase" for worthy day trips? we'll probably have about 11 or 12 days to spend...

so what's good with spain?!

I would def. add Granada to your list. The Alhambra was def. the best site I seen in Spain and maybe the best I seen in Europe. and granada is beautiful, yada yada yada. umm, you can day trip to Toledo from Madrid. Definitley recommended, toledo is a great medieval city, cept for the cars driving on the narrow medieval streets. you should probly also add sevilla. and from there you can day trip to cordoba if you like. I didn't get a chance to, but heard good things.
