Portugal

Portugal is one of the oldest nations in Europe and you can see that in its vast multi-cultural monumental, artistic, and archaeological heritage. Portugal offers sandy beaches, art treasures, flavorful cuisine, unique architecture (Manueline), charming handcrafts, a mild climate, and friendly people. What you will see: almond trees in the African-looking Algarve, cork forests and fields of golden wheat in Alentejo, ranches in Ribatejo, narrow, winding streets in the Alfama in Lisbon, ox-drawn carts crossing the plains of Minho, and vineyards in the Douro.

Spain

Spain is a country of passion, excitement and enthusiasm unlike any other in Western Europe. Madrid, the magnificent capital, Barcelona, Valencia and Seville are effervescent cosmopolitan cities with some of the best museums and galleries in Europe. Costa-style resorts take much of the coast up although cities such as Alicante, Marbella, Malaga and Mallorca's Palma retain their charm. And everywhere you can find secret hideaways with empty beaches. The best way to explore rural Spain is to visit Galicia and Asturias, the arid villages of Andalucia and the peaks of the Sierra Nevada and the Pyrenees.
