yeah – i can see it too, in google earth and maps... valencia, madrid, sevilla AND barcelona.

coverage seems to be more limited than what you get in other streetview countries – and is restricted to the cities themselves.. doesnt appear to venture out into surrounding towns...

this is just so awesome.

retracing my tapas bar beer crawl in Madrid, circa 1998...

i hope they expand the coverage in Spain – especially in the coastal resorts. it could do wonders for the spanish tourism industry.

Google launched Australia street view in early August, I thought [danielwang130.blogspot.com/2008/08/street-
view-australia-is-live.html]. Obviously, I am a bad predictor, just need a little bit more patience.......

But 360cities is better, if smaller ;-)

Any chance your photographers will venture into Madrid, Jeffrey? Imagine 360cities panoramas of gorgeous Parque del Buen Retiro ...
