2020 Lisbon > Madrid

Discover a land of rustic grandeur

The lands of Portugal and Spain once formed mighty seafaring kingdoms that conquered and colonised the known world, from Latin America to the Far East.
From their welcoming salt-of-the-earth demeanour to their relaxed love of the good life, siestas and fiestas, it’s the people that make these lands so memorable and so wonderful, whether you’re exploring picturesque Portugal, or the many treasures of Spain – Seville, the beautiful Andalusian mountains and Madrid.
