Portugal & Spain

Portugal and Spain can easily be combined in a tour to include the cities of Lisbon, Porto, Salamanca, and Madrid.  An alternative routing begins in Barcelona, traveling then across the temperate climate of northern Spain, ending in Porto, Portugal. The latter follows closely the St. James Way pilgrimage route and includes Santiago de Compostela. If you have only one word with which to describe Spain, it would be “festivals.” From the smallest village to the largest city, the country abounds in colorful spectacles of music and culture. Portugal exudes authenticity. It is a modern country, member of the European Union, which has managed to maintain many of the more appealing aspects of centuries past.
