Coach holidays and escorted tours to Portugal often take in parts of Spain so if you are looking for a multi-centre coach tour then these may appeal to you. You also have an option to join a scenic river cruise along the famous river Douro that flows across Spain and northern Portugal.
Lisbon is an amazing place, full of culture, history and beautiful architecture at every turn. Alfama is the oldest part of Lisbon spreading from the castle down to the Trejo River. The slope is home to several famous landmarks and monuments. It is characterised by small alleys, cosy atmosphere, and dreamlike architecture. On the shore of Lisbon you will find a historic Belem Tower (Tower of St Vincent). The fortified tower is a World Heritage Site due to its important role in Portuguese maritime discoveries. Another World Heritage Site located in Belem is marvellous Jeronimos Monastery. Its unique architecture is considered the most prominent example of Portuguese late-gothic style.
