To Visit Spain and Portugal as you have never seen it!

This area of southwest Europe is known as the Iberian Peninsula and includes the most scenic coastline of Portugal.

Our trip will begin in Madrid, Spain which is now a busy, cosmopolitan city. We then travel west through the countryside to Salamanca where we will see the old Celtic City (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). 

Following several destinations in Spain, we continue traveling to the coastal town of Porto, Portugal, where we will visit the family Casa de Mateus and learn how their famous wine is still being produce. We then travel the Portugal coastline and will end our journey in the picturesque capital city of Lisbon.

Among the 16 communities and stops we visit are Madrid, La Mejorado Vineyards, Cabeza de Diego Gomez, the Cathedrals of Salamanca, Casa de Mateus, the seacoast from Porto to Lisbon, Museu da Vista Alegre, fishing village of Nazare, and the picturesque village of Obidos.

We also have a guided tour through the cork forests of Alentejo, the high end winery of Herdade dos Coelheiros, and two days seeing sites and villages around Lisbon, including the Palace de Pena.

We have put together a perfect blend of agritourism venues, historical sites and the scenic beauty of the incredible coastline of the Iberian Peninsula. The agriculture is of course a bit different than ours but none the less a lesson of seeing the regional influence of generations of farming.
