This fantastic trip covers three countries—Spain, Morocco, and Portugal—concentrating on the southern part of the Iberian Peninsula. On this tour, there is ample time for in-depth sightseeing and you’ll see many of the area’s historic sights, including the Alcazar in Seville, founded in the 11th century as a Moorish fortress, and the Alhambra Complex in Granada. The Alhambra was a palace, citadel, and fortress for the Nasrid sultans and their servants, elite soldiers, and high officials from the 13th to 14th centuries.

If you’re interested in religious sights, this tour is not to be missed. Visit the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Rosary in Fatima, where pilgrims from all over the world visit; Jeronimos Monastery in Lisbon, built to thank the Virgin Mary for Portugal’s success in its voyages around the world; the Santo Tomé Church in Toledo, which has one of El Greco’s most famous paintings; the Sagrada Familia Basilica in Barcelona; and more.

Ferry crossings over the Strait of Gibraltar afford you spectacular views of the Rock. There’s a full day at leisure at the Costa del Sol, so you can enjoy the sandy beaches, browse the shops, or join an optional excursion to the Rock of Gibraltar. An overnight in Tangier gives you a nice taste of Morocco and features a panoramic drive to Cap Spartel and a visit to the colorful Grand Socco square.

These are just a few of the many highlights on this wonderful trip to Spain, Portugal, and Morocco—a trip of a lifetime!
