Whether cruising the Douro River or on a luxury cruise of the Mediterranean, the hilly and historic Lisbon is a highlight of any visit to Portugal. On the western coast of the Iberian Peninsula, bordered by Spain, Lisbon features a distinct style, seen in buildings like Jerónimos Monastery (Late Gothic Manueline architecture), the four-story limestone Belem Tower, the Castle of São Jorge, and others. Just outside of Lisbon you will find sites like Serra de Sintra, where the Portuguese royal family once lived, and the seemingly fairy tale Pena National Palace. From Lisbon, the Tagus River winds north into Spain; if your cruise sails the Atlantic Coast of Portugal, you will likely enter Spain via the Douro River. Or you can let us know how to customize your itinerary to include your dream destinations.
