24 Feb Spain & Portugal
Well known for sangria, Flamenco, paella and siestas, Spain is at the top of many travelers dream vacation destinations. In this country you will also encounter rambling boulevards, fruity rioja wines, distinguished art and a rich cultural heritage. From the Plaza Mayor in the cosmopolitan city of Madrid to the vivacious whimsy of Gaudi’s architecture in Barcelona, to the glamorous Mediterranean sun in Mallorca, and the dramatic dance of the bullfight in Andalucia, beautiful sights and experiences abound. Don’t forget to take time to indulge in the local Tempranillo wines and cuisine in a scene that is on the rise in Spain. Sampling tapas from bar to bar is still the most traditional and sociable way to eat, yet fine dining options offer delectable experiences for foodie travelers. A nearby trip to sunny Portugal is a wonderful addition on your trip to Iberia. From medieval villages and literary traditions, to pristine beaches and prestigious golf courses, to rolling vineyards and sprawling olive groves, Portugal is a land of beauty.
