Surrounded by rolling fields, this small town in the Ambroz valley will bring some peace to ‘bold and ambitious’ Aries.

Hervas is also home to one of Spain’s ‘prettiest’ jewish quarter, as well as two churches, Santa Maria and San Juan Bautista.

Taurus: Valle de Valdeon (Leon)

An earth sign, Tauruses are normally calm, grounded and serene. 

Any rural escape would be perfect for this star sign, but Escapada Rural picked out the Valle de Valdeon for its lush countryside and beautiful mountains. 

The area is dotted with eight enchanting villages: Posada de Valdeón, Soto de Valdeón, Caín, Santa Marina de Valdeón, Cordiñanes de Valdeón, Prada de Valdeón, Los Llanos de Valdeón and Caldevilla de Valedón.

After a relaxing day exploring, try the local blue cheese, made from the Valdeon valley cow. 

Gemini: Valldemossa (Mallorca) 

This town in the Balearic Islands was the favourite hideout of many creative types including Fryferyk Chopin and George Sand. 

That’s why Valldemossa is perfect for the spontaneous, curious and fun Geminis. 

Found in the Tramontana mountains, this magical spot had plenty of cobbled streets, flowers and incredible views to explore. 

Geminis can even see the piano used by Chopin in his stay to inspire their own extensive hobbies. 

Cancer: O Grove (Pontevedra) 

Pontevedra has been repeatedly named as one of Spain’s up and coming tourist destinations thanks to its cool climate, expansive countryside and historic cities. 

This highly intuitive and flexible water sign will love visiting some of Galicia’s best beaches and enjoying the fresh seafood. 

You can even learn about the area’s fishing history at the Museo da Salga. 

Leo: Parque Nacional de Cabaneros (Ciudad Real y Toledo)

We recommend a walk through the cobbled streets enjoying the pastel painted doorways followed by lunch in the town’s panoramic viewpoint.
