Summary

This fantastic Spain, Portugal, and Morocco tour focuses on the southern part of the Iberian Peninsula. On this vacation, there is ample time for in-depth sightseeing, and for visiting many of the area’s historic sites, including the Casa de Pilatos in Seville, with its splendid collection of Roman sculptures, and the Alhambra Complex in Granada.

If you’re interested in religious sites, this tour is not to be missed. Visit the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary in Fátima, where pilgrims from all over the world congregate; 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 houses 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 and from 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. Enjoy a panoramic drive to Cap Spartel, to admire the splendid views and drink a glass of hot mint tea Bedouin-style, along with local biscuits. Also, enjoy Moroccan entertainment during dinner at your hotel. Plus, a visit to the colorful Grand Socco square, a busy market with many stalls.

Globus also includes special experiences such as a wine tasting and dinner in Salamanca, with highlight overnight stay; and a visit to a cork factory in Azaruja.

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