2 Questions re: this exercise A trip to the Sierra de Atapuerca

Hello,

 A couple of questions: 

1. How to tell when to use an article in cases like this: 

Kwizbot     Mañana vamos a ir a la Sierra de Atapuerca. 
You            Mañana vamos a ir a Sierra de Atupuerca.

 

2.  Why  “there” does not translate to “allá”

and many people travel there

Kwizbot     y muchas personas viajan a este lugar 
You            y muchas personas viajan allá

Hola Nicole

Sorry about the delay.

1. article

when we mention places like mountains, beaches, ... we tend to use the article, for example: 

"Hicimos una excursión por la Sierra de las Nieves de Málaga."

"Mi playa favorita de Hueva es la Playa de Punta Umbría."

2. allá would also be correct (although "allí" is more commonly used in Spain). But in the hint for this snippet we asked to write literally "and many people travel to this place". This is why we haven't considered allá as a correct answer. 

I hope this helped.

Saludos

Inma
