Why are we so excited about this? CNN en Español’s new interactive map of travel

Our journalists travelled to historic places in Spain to tell you about culture, music, food and photography

“See the world through your cell phone” is how CNN en Español says it plans to cover Europe, the Middle East and Africa this year with an online focus. We’ve launched a new website with an informative interactive map of travel for your convenience.

In the months to come, we’ll be travelling around Europe to cover events of significance to Europeans in news, television and online.

Here are some examples of travel we covered on the site:

• Aragon was the scene of the Aragonese Catholic Lenten mass celebrated by Pope Francis in February. He’s headed to the northernmost part of Spain, the Basque country, later this year.

• A new exhibition by Jesús Reinoso called Quixote and Two Lost Kings displays stories about a 17th-century painter who created images of Sancho Panza and Don Quixote.

• A man drives his pedal-powered bike down a river to get into a series of romantic 15th-century doorways.

• A small group of teenage girls from Sant Cugat high school take a search for art based on passionate relationships. We covered this in Argentina in March

• Cumbia and pasada manjaritos each occupy equal space on CNN en Español’s list of the top 10 most popular music videos on YouTube.

• Campaigning in the town of Narayuelos, Cambrils, by the People Against Terrorism force, a grassroots movement, led to a radical attack by extremists on people and police. It was filmed in September

• This is the last in a series of video reports about the Argentine wine wine industry.

• More investigation into the historic city of Seville, including views of the Alhambra.
