Summary

This fantastic Spain, Portugal, and Morocco tour concentrates on the southern part of the Iberian Peninsula. On this vacation, there is ample time for in-depth sightseeing, and you’ll visit 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.

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 13th-century cathedral and the Church of Santo Tomé in Toledo, which has one of El Greco’s most famous paintings; and more.

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. Ferry crossings over the Strait of Gibraltar to Morocco afford spectacular views. An overnight in Tangier gives you a nice taste of Morocco. Here, Globus has arranged special experiences to help Morocco come to life. You’ll enjoy a panoramic drive to Cap Spartel, where you’ll admire the splendid views and drink a glass of hot mint tea Bedouin-style, along with local biscuits. You’ll also enjoy a lively Moroccan show. Plus a visit to the colorful Grand Socco square, a busy market with many stalls.

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