Journey to the Iberian Peninsula, to the intimate lodgings of Spain’s paradores and Portugal’s pousadas and explore medieval monasteries, historic fortresses and stately palaces, each reflecting the spirit of the region. Fall under the spell of Iberia’s rich Roman and Moorish past—and the pull of its vibrant, contemporary life. Begin your 15-day journey in Lisbon touring the capital’s highlights, including the Belem Tower, and take an excursion to the National Palace of Queluz. Travel through picturesque Alentejo, a region of olive groves and vineyards, to one of Portugal’s finest pousadas. The town of Evora, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a treasure-trove of Portuguese, Roman and Moorish heritage. Travel to Merida on the Spanish border to see its outstanding Roman ruins.
In Spain’s Andalucia region, discover the beauty and romance of Seville, the inspiration for Carmen and Don Giovanni. Visit the renowned Catédral, the world’s largest Gothic building. Tour the Old Quarter, built around the magnificent Mezquita mosque, and other highlights in Cordoba. Spend two nights in charming Ronda and then travel to Granada, the former Moorish stronghold set dramatically in the Sierra Nevada. Tour its renowned fortress, the Alhambra and Generalife gardens. A visit to medieval Toledo is a tour highlight en route to Madrid. End your journey in Spain’s urbane capital and visit the imposing 18th-century Royal Palace, the world-renowned Prado, and vast Plaza Mayor.
