2017 Possible – The Romance of Spain & Portugal

A TRULY WONDERFUL TOUR

 

We begin our tour with 3 days in Madrid and then leave for Toledo for lunch and Merida for a tour of the best Roman ruins in Spain. We stay at a converted palace, the historical Pousada at Estremoz in Portugal  and explore Evora, Monsaraz and visit the Ducal Palace at Vila Vicosa, all towns in the “marble” area of Portugal. Our journey continues to Lisbon and Belem with its famous tower, plus 2½ days to explore the many museums, shops and areas of Lisbon, before we enjoy a tour and then a walk in the forests of the Pena Palace and Moorish Castle ruins in Sintra. From another Pousada, the luxurious monastery at Palmela, we enjoy a morning on a traditional fishing vessel then on the next day walk through the Arrabida National Park to a picnic overlooking the Atlantic – a picnic of local produce. The Pousada at Tavira is a relaxing break in our travel.  There is a cycle tour of the town and beaches before we head back into Spain for Seville, Cordoba and Granada with their unique and awe-inspiring Moorish architecture.  Guided tours in Seville and Granada increase our understanding and add to our pleasure before a walk in the Sierra Nevada between two villages. We then fly to Barcelona for 3 days to end our tour with the Sagrada Familia, other Gaudi architecture, the Miro Museum, Los Ramblas and shopping or whatever takes your fancy.
