    Portugal's bustling capital showcases a rich contrast of the historical and modern. Situated near the Tagus River and endlessly sunny, Lisbon embodies a unique beauty and an internationally acclaimed architectural singularity. Its charming hilly neighborhoods boast winding, cobblestone streets and pastel-painted homes and cafés, which happily serve up the city’s signature cuisine, including pastel de nata and custard tarts. From imposing Sao Jorge Castle, the view encompasses the city’s Old Town, Tagus Estuary, and suspension bridge; the National Azulejo Museum displays 5 centuries of decorative ceramic tiles.

  • Porto
    Porto

    Porto or sometimes called Oporto is the second-largest city in Portugal, after Lisbon, and has been awarded with two Unesco Heritage Sites. Porto is a unique mix of monuments and wine. This is the very city that originated the name “Port Wine”. Some of the cities attractions include the Dom Luis Bridge, The Cathedral, Cais Da Ribeira Unesco district, Sao Francisco Church and much more. SeaDream has arranged a highlights orientation as well as tasting some port wine.

  • Vigo (Bayona), Galicia
    Vigo (Bayona), Galicia

    The port of Vigo, with its strategic location in the northwest corner of Spain was constantly fought over during the many periods of war between Spain, Britain and France. Nearby Baiona is a town with a medieval historical center situated by the outlet of the Vigo Bay. On March 1, 1493, the Pinta, one of the ships from Columbus' voyage to discover the New World returned to Europe and arrived in Baiona, making the town's port the first to receive news of the discovery of America. A replica of the ship can be visited, and the event is celebrated each and every year. SeaDreamers have two land adventure options that include the sights and tastes of Bayona as well as the Unesco Awarded town of Santiago de Compostela.

  • A Coruña
    A Coruña

    On the northwesternmost corner of Spain lies La Coruña, a distinguished city favored by history for its strategically important placement. Its most prized landmark is the 2nd-century Tower of Hercules, the world’s oldest Roman lighthouse still in use, a colossal structure that has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Stroll through graceful María Pita Square, named for the revered 16th-century Coruñan woman who inspired a successful counterattack on Sir Francis Drake’s intimidating English Armada. At the spectacular Aquarium Finisterre, gaze at myriad undersea creatures through massive glass panes, perhaps continuing your exploration of the city’s striking shoreline at the formidable San Antón Castle, a terrifically preserved 16th century fortification. Should you strike out to the lovely countryside, quaint villages such as Betanzos will delight you with houses that showcase the region’s distinctive glass-paned balconies. Don’t forget to visit one of La Coruña’s inviting tabernas, where excellent seafood is complemented by the lively conversation of friendly locals.

  • Gijon (Oviedo), Asturias
    Gijon (Oviedo), Asturias

    Gijon began as a fishing village nearly 3,000 years ago. The historic fishing village known as Cimadevilla is located on a peninsula that divides the port in half. The village is the main tourist attraction of the city. Most of the streets are narrow and cobblestoned. Many of the buildings have been renovated to display the colorful life of the village. Nearby Oviedo is the capital city of the Principality of Asturias in northern Spain. It is said that two monks, Maximo and Fromestanus, founded the city in 761. Oviedo was featured prominently in Woody Allen's movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

  • Santander
    Santander

    Santander, Spain is located on the northern coast of Spain. It is an idyllic combination of sea and mountains. It has eleven sandy beaches with crystal clear waters and are a favorite summer attraction. Main attractions include the Cathedral, El Sardinero, The Placio de la Magdalena, El Hotel Real, Gran Casino del Sardinero and the Lighthouse of Cabo Mayor.

  • Bilbao
    Bilbao

    Just south of the Bay of Bisbay in northcentral Spain sits mountain-backdropped Bilboa. The town’s remarkable landscapes and defining architecture, including the Guggenheim Museum and Catedral de Santiago, only begin to express its charm. Known as one of the secret treasures of Spain, Bilbao comes with a cultural allure that few can resist. Bask in Bilbao’s rolling green hills and breathtaking coastline, enjoy Michelin-inspired restaurants, and stroll Old Town’s endless cobblestone streets filled with wine bars and bistros. Indulge in traditional Basque cuisine, including classics like pintxos and bacalao al pil-pil.

  • San Sebastian
    San Sebastian

    The Kursaal Convention Center’s glowing cubes and Basque Culinary Center’s elongated terraces have become symbols of contemporary San Sebastian, but traditional Belle Époch and Baroque were certainly never abandoned. Begin your San Sebastian journey in the atmospheric Old City – the capital of Pais Vasco’s Gipuzkoa Province, it is a vibrant center of Basque culture and history. The French frontier is just a few kilometers down the road, and perhaps San Sebastian shares more with Biarritz and Bayonne than it does with Madrid.

  • Bordeaux
    Bordeaux

    France’s Atlantic shore between Pointe de Grave, at the mouth of the Gironde River, and Biarritz, at the foot of the Pyrenées, is known as Côte d’Argent. The river narrows near Bordeaux, center to one of the world’s most celebrated wine-producing regions. More than 10,000 vineyards dot the countryside, providing most of the Epicurean nation’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Sémillon, Savignon Blanc, and Muscadelle grapes.

    Description

    Enjoy a panoramic sightseeing drive through the city of A Coruña by heading first to the promenade that runs the length of the city’s coastline. See the 'galleries' along the waterfront that lend A Coruña its 'Crystal City' nickname due to their hundreds of windows. Long ago, the sea was nearer to the city and these windows reflected the sunlight bouncing off the surface of the water. Along the promenade (the longest in Europe) you will pass the Castle of San Anton, built on an island. Once a local fortress, currently the castle is an archaeological museum and is connected to the city by a causeway.

    Don't miss the Tower of Hercules, a beacon built by the ancient Romans, for a memorable photo stop. This is the only lighthouse of its kind that is still working in its original capacity and also is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

  • San Sebastian - Getaria Medieval Village & Winery

    Description

    The Bay of Biscay imprints its character on San Sebastian where, back in 1476, Juan Sebastián Elcano was born. As the first sailor to circumnavigate the Earth, Juan’s fame is said to equal that of txakoli, the wine synonymous with the Basque Country. Founded in 1989, Getariako Txakolina is a Denomination of Origin for 31 wineries and 150 vine growers that work 402 hectares of vineyard, 91% of which are in coastal areas. Behind this achievement lies a lot of hard work on the part of vine growers, entrepreneurs and organizations, considering that in the 1980’s just 21 hectares were recorded, three in Zarautz and the rest in Getaria. In the previous century the figure was as high as 250 hectares.

    Getaria is a walled medieval town sitting on a hillside. The silhouette of Mount San Antón, better known as "the Mouse of Getaria", draws special attention and comes out into the sea. Located in the Urola Kosta region, in the historical territory of Gipuzkoa, the town is the birthplace of a sailor and a couturier: Juan Sebastián Elcano and Cristobal Balenciaga. During and after the Middle Ages, when harpoons were still thrown by hand; the people from this village were whale hunters. The local coat of arms even depicts a whale with a harpoon stuck on its back. A guided walk through this village is captivating, passing medieval houses, the port, and the boulevard that leads to the hermitage of San Antón making its history come alive again.

    Following the walking tour of the village, you will visit a traditional Txakoli winery. Txakoli is a young, fruity white wine, of moderate strength (11º) and with a slight characteristic acidity. This unique & distinctive wine should be served chilled. Enjoy a tasting of Txakoli wines served with a tasting of 2 local seafood pintxos “tapas”.
