Whether you want to get lost in the mountains or have a relaxing meditation retreat by the sea, there are tons of great options for Spain meditation retreats.
Meditation Retreats in Spain
Meditation retreats in Spain are quite affordable (much more affordable than yoga retreats in Spain). Depending on how long you want to get away from it all and how luxurious you want your accommodation to be, you can enjoy a retreat for under €500.
Most of these Spain meditation retreats are lot located in big cities. They are all located in wonderfully peaceful places where you can completely disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with your inner world.
I always use sites like Tripaneer or Book Yoga Retreats to find the best prices for retreats across a whole country or region. It allows you to filter by price and location and find the best retreats for your budget.

This four-day meditation retreat in Spain is located in Santa Maria de Merlès which is a one-and-a-half-hour drive or three-hour train ride from Barcelona.
