In Spain, you’ll overnight in Madrid, Granada, Cordoba, Seville, and Salamanca. In Portugal, you’ll stay in Lisbon and Oporto. One of the tour highlights is a visit to Toledo, a town that attracts more visitors from around the world than any other Spanish town. In this old walled town, built on a hill, you’ll visit the 12th-century Church of St. Tome, which has one of El Greco's most famous paintings. You will be delighted by the included visit of the Alhambra complex, built in the 13th century by Moorish kings featuring one of the oldest decorative gardens in the Western World. In Avila—a UNESCO World Heritage city founded in the 11th century—see the towers and walls and visit St. Theresa's Convent, a Carmelite convent opened in 1636 on the birthplace of St. Teresa. In Portugal, visit Lisbon with a local guide, who will show you Belem Tower, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built circa 1514 to commemorate the expedition of Vasco de Gama and Oporto's cathedral, built between the 12th and 13th centuries in Romanesque style on a terrace overlooking the port wine cellars on the banks of the Douro River.
