In this city you will find the purest essence of Portugal and an air of nostalgia in every corner, intensified by the sound of fado drifting out of some bars. Take a ride on the famous elétrico (tram) and climb the steep streets that lead you to Bairro Alto. The Manueline style Belém Tower is one of the city’s symbols, alongside the impressive Gothic Jerónimos Monastery. Make sure you try some local Lisbon cuisine, such as the bolinhos de bacalhau (cod fritters) and the truly delicious pasteis de Belém custard tarts.


Spain’s capital is home to a wide variety of architectural styles, from the austere buildings of Madrid of The Habsburgs, with the Plaza Mayor main square and the Casa de la Villa, to the stately buildings of the Salamanca district, with its grid-like streets. Madrid’s more modern side can be found on the 20th century Gran Vía with its theatres and cafés, whereas the skyscrapers can be seen along the Paseo de la Castellana. Relax by taking a stroll through the Retiro Park, admire the paintings in the Prado, the Reina Sofía, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums, and savour some delicious tapas, such as a calamari sandwich and some patatas bravas.
