Founded 3,000 years ago
by the Phoenicians, Cádiz is the oldest city in Western Europe. The different
peoples who settled here left an important cultural imprint, whose influence
still remains in the character of the city's people. This peninsula, right on
the Andalusian Atlantic coast, has been able to preserve an important historical
legacy - the result of its commercial importance - together with excellent beaches
and an exquisite regional cuisine.

 

On the Atlantic front rise
the dome and yellow tiles of the Cathedral, looking towards Campo del Sur. Baroque
and Neoclassical in style, its crypt guards the remains of the composer Manuel
de Falla. Beside it are the old Roman theatre and the old cathedral.

 

Right in the centre of Cádiz
you can visit the Cádiz Municipal Historical Museum, the Tavira Tower, one of
the most symbolic in the city, and the Oratory of San Felipe Neri, a National
Monument in which the Liberal Constitution of 1812 was debated.

 

Many lively squares lie

of the Provincial Government and Monument to the Liberal Cortes (Parliament).
In the tree-lined Plaza Mina you can visit the Cádiz Archaeological and Fine
Arts Museum, which has interesting Phoenician exhibitions, while in the Plaza
de San Francisco you can visit the church of the same name. The city's most
important shopping streets begin around the Plaza de las Flores. There is a
good reason why the Central Market located here. Another square, that of Tío
de la Tiza, is the heart of the district of La Viña, where the Carnival, a Festival
of International Tourist Interest, begins with the traditional satirical verses.

Jerez de la Frontera, well known for its wines, its horses and its flamenco, preserves a historic centre that has been declared a historic artistic site. One of the noblest towns in Cádiz brings together the splendour of aristocratic palaces with the popular flavour of typically Andalusian houses.
Jerez de la Frontera's Arab past is clear in its walls, the Fortress and the Mosque. The latter is today the chapel of Santa María la Real. The Almohad origin (12th C.) of the building can be seen in the octagonal towers. Among other rooms, the Fortress has bathrooms, covered with vaults in which skylights were opened. The tower of Villavicencio palace, a Baroque building forming part of the monumental site, has a camera obscura from which you can make out the whole city.
The city's main Christian symbol, the Cathedral, is very close by. Standing on the site of a mosque, the former collegiate church of San Salvador combines Baroque and Neoclassical elements in its structure.
Another way of getting to know the culture of Jerez is visiting its numerous wine cellars, where the wines of the Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Denomination of Origin are made. Here we can get to know both the traditional and modern winemaking methods and taste the different types of Jerez wine.
Also in the Recreo de las Cadenas, work of the French architect Garnier and headquarters of the Royal Andalusian School of the Equestrian Art, we can attend a demonstration of "How the Andalusian Horses Dance”.
Then we drive to Arcos de la Frontera sitting on a spectacular sheer cliff, Arcos de la Frontera is a picturesque town in the province of Cadiz full of small reminders of its Arab inheritance. Towers, churches and splendid viewpoints with views of the River Guadalete are just some of the countless attractions offered by this area, right on the White Villages route.
Right in the centre is the Plaza del Cabildo. Some of the most notable buildings in the city are concentrated in this space, such as the Town Hall and the Ducal Castle, a Muslim fortress rebuilt in the 15th century. Opposite those stands the Parador de Turismo, located in the old Casa del Corregidor.

Cadiz: Sevilla Full Day Excursion

Built on the banks of the
Guadalquivir River, Seville is heir to a rich Arab legacy, and to the condition
of being a prosperous trading port with the Americas.

 

Every street and square
that makes up the historic quarter of the Andalusian capital bursts with joy
and bustle. This area has an interesting collection of historic buildings, many
of which have been declared World Heritage Sites.

 

Founded by the Roman General
Publius Cornelius Scipio, the city witnessed the birth of two Roman Emperors:
Trajan and Hadrian. The long Muslim rule, from the year 711 till 1248, left
indelible marks in this city. The end of the Cordovan Caliphate in the 11th
century gave rise to the splendour of the Taifa Kingdom of Seville, especially
under the rule of al-Mutamid, the Poet-King.

 

On the banks of the Guadalquivir
we find the Torre del Oro, of Arab origin, which dates back to the 13th century
and was part of the ancient walls. Closeby is one of the most emblematic bullrings
in Spain the Real Maestranza de Caballería.

 

We can also approach the
baroque façade of the Royal Tobacco Factory, now the University, the San Telmo
Palace, the María Luisa Park, or Plaza de España. Around here there are many
interesting buildings, part of the Hispanic-American Exhibition that took place
in Seville in 1929.

 

The monumental site formed
by the incredible Cathedral, (the 3rd largest cathedral in the world and Museum
exhibiting priceless collections of precious metalwork, paintings, reliquaries,
jewels and religious vestments) the Royal Fortresses and Archive of the Indies
was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the city's emblem. The Gothic
church, built on top of the Almohad Mosque of Seville, is located among whitewashed
houses in the district of Santa Cruz, the former jewish quarter. Of the Arab
legacy, the old minaret is preserved, which nowadays is the famous Giralda,
as well as the Patio de los Naranjos (the Courtyard of the Orange Trees).

 

Next to these, the Reales
Alcázares (Royal Fortresses) are built on top of an Arab citadel from the 9th
century, yet we owe the Mudéjar decoration to Pedro I the Cruel in the 14th
century. The walls enclose numerous rooms, lavish halls, and intimate courtyards.
Its spacious gardens, with Arabic and Renaissance elements, frame the whole
complex.

 

Finally, the Archive of
the Indies leads us to Spanish renaissance art. It is one of the most important
documentation centres in existence relating to the conquest of America. Another
important renaissance building in the city is the Casa de Pilatos, a palace
that fuses Gothic and Mudejar elements with Renaissance influences of Italian
origin.

 

Seville's city centre leads
us into the best-known streets, like Sierpes or Campana; and to numerous churches,
hospitals, Renaissance palaces and Baroque buildings

Enjoy a scenic drive to Delphi via the National Highway passing through the spectacular sites of Boetia, Thebes and Levadia.

Delphi is by common consent the most spectacularly beautiful ancient site in Greece and the one, which, even to the uninitiated, most vividly evokes the Classical Past.  In antiquity Delphi was regarded as the centre of the world (omphalos of the earth) and to this, and its oracle, the place owed its prestige, which extended far beyond the Greek world.  

Our visit to Delphi is divided into three parts: the Sanctuary of Apollo with the Stadion; the Castalian spring and the Sanctuary of Athena at Marmaria (from above as it is a steep ragged climb to access it); and the Museum.

Enjoy lunch at a traditional local restaurant.  En route to Athens, there will be a short stop at the picturesque mountain village of Arachova. The village is famous for its attractive hand-woven carpets and rugs as well as for its wine and cheese.

In the early evening return to Athens.

Discover the culture and traditions that have sprung from this unique fishing community and learn about the island’s rich history from our expert tour guide.

Our hike will follow the winding coastal path along the island and up the hillside for majestic views over the South China Sea and neighboring Cheung Chau and Lantau Island. Lamma Island has been inhabited for over 6,000 years – this route will give you a glimpse into its past, from its abandoned banana plantations, ancestral graves, and old feng shui woods to a World War 2 Kamikaze tunnel and even, a centuries old Tin Hau temple, dedicated to the local goddess of the sea, that remains a place of prayer to this day.

We’ll stop for a fresh seafood lunch by the waterfront of Sok Kwu Wan village, before continuing to the bustling village of Yung Shue Wan. Stroll through the narrow streets of tightly packed local shops and delight in the colorful bohemian community that has gradually become part of Lamma Island’s new culture.

• A walking tour of Lamma Island with a knowledgeable guide.

• A seafood lunch.

• All transportation to and from the meeting point

Weather
This experience takes place outdoors and may have to be rescheduled in the event of adverse weather conditions, as assessed on a case by case basis. If the experience needs to be rescheduled, the instructor will inform all participants via phone call of the change. As a reference, a red or black rainstorm warning or typhoon signal no. 3 or above would be unsuitable for walking experiences. Please note that the summer weather can also be very taxing.

Dress Code
Footwear: We recommend that you wear either robust walking shoes or trainers/sneakers. Casual sandals or open shoes are not suitable for trails, which can be rocky in places.

Clothing: Sun and rainfall can be intense and a hat is recommended. During the winter season (November – March) temperatures can drop with a chilling wind, so a sweater/ fleece is advisable. During the wet season (April – September) a waterproof jacket is recommended. In warmer months (May – October) it is advisable to carry a spare T–shirt or other garment to change into at the end of the hike.

Skin Protection: Suntan lotion should be used throughout the year and applied frequently during the hike. Insect repellant is not obligatory but advisable if you tend to attract insects.

Water: Please carry sufficient water for your own needs. In the warmer months, this may equate to one liter for every two hours of walking. Dehydration is a real risk on hot days. Choose mineralized rather than distilled water. Consider an electrolyte replacement drink as well.

Destination: Hong Kong, China
Duration: 2.5 hours

Upon arrival to Hong Kong (Ocean Terminal or Kai Tak Cruise Terminal), disembark the ship and meet your guide. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has a rich legacy, dating back to ancient China. Over the years, the practice has evolved into a holistic form of alternative medicine, aimed at maintaining overall health and wellness. In this 1.5 hour experience, open your eyes to the expansive world of Traditional Chinese Medicine and embrace an important part of Chinese culture that is often shrouded in mystery.

Tour a Chinese Medicine Clinic
This experience begins with a tour of a Chinese medicine clinic. Discover the curious mixture of medicinal herbs stored within the apothecary cabinet and learn about the properties and uses of some of the more popular herbs. You’ll learn about the history and evolution of TCM practice and find out what is involved in prescribing and preparing the powerful herbal concoctions.

A Private Chinese Medicine Consultation
You will then have a private consultation with Dr. Guo Yue Feng, a qualified Chinese medicine practitioner with over 30 years of experience. By examining your tongue, taking your pulse and temperature, and studying other external indicators, like your complexion and muscle tone, he will identify the imbalances in your body.

The consultation is complemented by a session with a TCM nutritionist, to determine your body constitution. You will receive advice on how to rebalance yourself, including tips on the best foods to eat and the lifestyle changes needed to remedy your symptoms and strengthen your body.

Experience a Chinese Medicine Treatment
Once diagnosed, you will have a choice of one of the following TCM treatments:

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a healing system, where fine needles are inserted into the key blood channels   to stimulate the free flow of energy (Qi) movement through your body.

Cupping Therapy

Heated cups are placed on targeted parts of the body. Pressure is then applied to create    suction on those areas. In the process, toxins are released and blood flow is increased

Gua Sha

Meaning ‘to scrape the skin’, Gua Sha involves the use of a smooth flat object, like a spoon,   to apply broad, scraping strokes to the body. This treatment can stimulate the immune    system and relieve pain.

Herbal Steaming

This treatment allows the body to absorb the benefits of medicinal herbs through steam,    leaving you feeling cleansed and refreshed.

Discover the culture and traditions that have sprung from this unique fishing community and learn about the island’s rich history from our expert tour guide.

Our hike will follow the winding coastal path along the island and up the hillside for majestic views over the South China Sea and neighboring Cheung Chau and Lantau Island. Lamma Island has been inhabited for over 6,000 years – this route will give you a glimpse into its past, from its abandoned banana plantations, ancestral graves, and old feng shui woods to a World War 2 Kamikaze tunnel and even, a centuries old Tin Hau temple, dedicated to the local goddess of the sea, that remains a place of prayer to this day.

We’ll stop for a fresh seafood lunch by the waterfront of Sok Kwu Wan village, before continuing to the bustling village of Yung Shue Wan. Stroll through the narrow streets of tightly packed local shops and delight in the colorful bohemian community that has gradually become part of Lamma Island’s new culture.

• A walking tour of Lamma Island with a knowledgeable guide.

• A seafood lunch.

• All transportation to and from the meeting point

Weather
This experience takes place outdoors and may have to be rescheduled in the event of adverse weather conditions, as assessed on a case by case basis. If the experience needs to be rescheduled, the instructor will inform all participants via phone call of the change. As a reference, a red or black rainstorm warning or typhoon signal no. 3 or above would be unsuitable for walking experiences. Please note that the summer weather can also be very taxing.

Dress Code
Footwear: We recommend that you wear either robust walking shoes or trainers/sneakers. Casual sandals or open shoes are not suitable for trails, which can be rocky in places.

Clothing: Sun and rainfall can be intense and a hat is recommended. During the winter season (November – March) temperatures can drop with a chilling wind, so a sweater/ fleece is advisable. During the wet season (April – September) a waterproof jacket is recommended. In warmer months (May – October) it is advisable to carry a spare T–shirt or other garment to change into at the end of the hike.

Skin Protection: Suntan lotion should be used throughout the year and applied frequently during the hike. Insect repellant is not obligatory but advisable if you tend to attract insects.

Water: Please carry sufficient water for your own needs. In the warmer months, this may equate to one liter for every two hours of walking. Dehydration is a real risk on hot days. Choose mineralized rather than distilled water. Consider an electrolyte replacement drink as well.

You’ll learn about the history and evolution of TCM practice and find out what is involved in prescribing and preparing the powerful herbal concoctions.

A Private Chinese Medicine Consultation
You will then have a private consultation with Dr. Guo Yue Feng, a qualified Chinese medicine practitioner with over 30 years of experience. By examining your tongue, taking your pulse and temperature, and studying other external indicators, like your complexion and muscle tone, he will identify the imbalances in your body.

The consultation is complemented by a session with a TCM nutritionist, to determine your body constitution. You will receive advice on how to rebalance yourself, including tips on the best foods to eat and the lifestyle changes needed to remedy your symptoms and strengthen your body.

Experience a Chinese Medicine Treatment
Once diagnosed, you will have a choice of one of the following TCM treatments:

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a healing system, where fine needles are inserted into the key blood channels   to stimulate the free flow of energy (Qi) movement through your body.

Cupping Therapy

Heated cups are placed on targeted parts of the body. Pressure is then applied to create    suction on those areas. In the process, toxins are released and blood flow is increased

Gua Sha

Meaning ‘to scrape the skin’, Gua Sha involves the use of a smooth flat object, like a spoon,   to apply broad, scraping strokes to the body. This treatment can stimulate the immune    system and relieve pain.

Herbal Steaming

This treatment allows the body to absorb the benefits of medicinal herbs through steam,    leaving you feeling cleansed and refreshed.

Shanghai Jewish Quarter Tour - 4 hours
Half-day tour to Shanghai Jewish Quarter. 

 
Background:
Shanghai was the only city in the world that provided a safe home for World War II refugees without papers. As a result, approximately 32,000 Jews, known among themselves as "Shanghailanders," settled in this fascinating Chinese city. Like the names Schindler, Wallenberg and Sugihara, Shanghai has become synonymous with rescue and refuge during the fascist-dictated times when 6 million Jews perished and at least 35 million Chinese were killed and wounded. At one point, there were at least seven synagogues in Shanghai, but today very little evidence of this once vital community remains.

Ohel Moishe Synagogue. The Ohel Moishe Synagogue is a European style temple that was once the centerpiece of the Hongkou District. The original synagogue was founded in 1907 by a Russian Jew, and was moved to this site twenty years later. Once a synagogue for Orthodox Russian and German Jews, it was also at various times, the headquarters of the Zionist youth organization Brith Trumpeldor (Betar) and the isolation ward of the Shanghai Mental Hospital. The synagogue is now a recognized historical site and a Jewish Refugees Memorial has been built next to it.

We’ll stop for a fresh seafood lunch by the waterfront of Sok Kwu Wan village, before continuing to the bustling village of Yung Shue Wan. Stroll through the narrow streets of tightly packed local shops and delight in the colorful bohemian community that has gradually become part of Lamma Island’s new culture.

If the experience needs to be rescheduled, the instructor will inform all participants via phone call of the change. As a reference, a red or black rainstorm warning or typhoon signal no. 3 or above would be unsuitable for walking experiences. Please note that the summer weather can also be very taxing.

Dress Code

Acupuncture is a healing system, where fine needles are inserted into the key blood channels   to stimulate the free flow of energy (Qi) movement through your body.

Kochi: Alleppey with lunch onboard traditional Houseboat - 6 hours
FULL DAY
ALLEPPEY BACKWATER CRUISE BY MOTOR BOAT WITH LUNCH
 
One of the highlights of Kerala are the backwaters and their traditional houseboats that glide through one of India’s most beautiful and tranquil landscapes, a rural expanse of verdant coconut groves and rice paddies.

Today disembark the cruise and you will be driven for approx. one and half hour journey passing through small villages where the locals go about their daily life.  On arrival in Alappuzha (formerly known as Alleppey) board your houseboat, care is taken to use only natural products when building these, such as bamboo mats, sticks and wood of the areca nut tree are used for the roofing coir mats and wooden planks for the flooring and wood of coconut trees and coir for beds. For lighting though, solar panels are used.

The term "backwaters" refers to the inter-meshed network of rivers, lakes, canals and lagoons that tie together the coastal and interior regions south of Kochi. For centuries, these canals provided a safe and efficient means of transportation for goods and people moving between the heartland of Kerala and the port towns along the coast. Even today, traditional barges, or kettuvallams, haul coconut, pepper, rice and other goods along the waterways.

Relax on board with some light refreshments while drifting along shimmering waterways lined with dense tropical vegetation, and observe rural Kerala lifestyles from the comfortable boat deck.
 
The landscape ranges from narrow canals walled-in with thick greenery, to open vistas of brilliant green paddy fields or large open lagoons.  Peering through the trees, you will see churches, mosques and temples. On the water's edge, notice villagers bathing and scrubbing their clothes, and sometimes washing their buffalos.

On arrival back to Alleppey re-board your vehicle for your return journey to the quayside.

Setting off from the quayside by coach your first stop will be at Mattancherry and the Dutch Palace, an oriental-style structure built by the Portuguese in 1555 AD. Occupied neither by the Portuguese nor the Dutch over the ensuing centuries, "Dutch Palace" may seem a bit of a contradiction. But certainly the description of "remarkable" is apt, as you will discover on entering the palace's wooden interior, which is decorated with a series of murals. In the royal bedroom alone there are 45 murals depicting the great Indian epic, the Ramayana. The palace also boasts an interesting collection of Dutch maps, coronation robes belonging to the maharajas, along with royal palanquins, weapons and furniture.
 
Continue with a walk through Jew Town with shops selling spices and antiques lining the streets before arriving at the Jewish Synagogue for a brief visit.
 
Take a short walk to St Francis Church, the European oldest church in India before walking past the fish market, where locals have their catch cooked and served to them, to the Chinese Fishing Nets. These nets are set up on bamboo poles and held horizontally by huge mechanisms, which lower them into the sea. This is a unique symbol of the centuries-old influence on this coastline.
 
Board your motor boat for a relaxing cruise through the city’s’ waterways passing Gundu and Vypeen island as well as the cantilevered Chinese fishing nets that line Fort Cochin’s shores.

The Cultures of Kochi - 4 hours
A trading port since Roman times, Cochin has a relaxed seaport lifestyle that has changed little over the centuries.
 
Your first visit will be to the Mattancherry area and the Dutch Palace, which displays a remarkable series of murals. There is also an interesting collection of Dutch maps of old Kochi, coronation robes belonging to the maharajas, royal palanquins, weapons and furniture. From here, it is a short walk to the Pardesi Synagogue-a tiny but delightful structure built in 1568. Its eclectic décor includes a floor paved with hand-painted blue and white Cantonese porcelain tiles, no two alike, and a glass, oil-burning chandelier from Belgium. The surrounding area is still called Jew Town, and is a fascinating mix of antique shops, warehouses, and spice auction rooms.  Stop at the local Synagogue for a visit.
 
It is a short and pleasant walk to the typical English village green. In one corner stands the Church of St Francis, its simple style enhanced only by the handsome floor tiles that line the main aisle and said to be the oldest European church in India.  A beautifully simple structure the attractive floor tiles still line the main aisle.  Another sign of architectural simplicity are the church's punkahs, or large cloth fans. Suspended above the parishioners and operated manually from outside the church, the fans are a relic from colonial times.                                                                                                
Finally conclude your tour by stopping to see the large, graceful Chinese fishing nets that line the shore, first introduced by traders from the Court of Kublai Khan.

The Rambla is possibly the most well known avenue and represents a typical postcard of the city. A place for public and sport celebrations, the Rambla is a boulevard that starts in Plaça Catalunya (Barcelona’s commercial area) and ends in the Port, offering a multicoloured picture of people enjoying a walk, live statues, artists, musicians, painters and atmosphere. One of the symbols of the Rambla is the Fountain of Canaletes. Tradition says that visitors who drink from this source will return to Barcelona.

One of the main arteries of the historic quarter, La Rambla, leads to the Mediterranean Sea, and it is one of the best places to catch the rhythm of the city. The visitor is led through its different sections, from the Romanesque church of Santa Anna, to the different stalls, passing gorgeous examples of Baroque and Renaissance architecture on the way and the Boquería Market.
It is worth to stop for a moment and visit the Church of Betlem and the Palau de la Virreina, with permanent exhibitions of interest. A visit to the Market of la Boqueria is advisable to enjoy an incredible contrast between colours and activity, ideal to discover why Mediterranean cuisine is internationally known due to its ingredients.
Walking down the avenue, in direction to the sea, we find the Plà de la Boqueria. Its pavement is decorated with a mosaic of Joan Miró. Very near is the Gran Teatre del Liceu (the Opera House), recently reconstructed after a devastating fire in 1994. Crossing the Rambla we find the Plaça Reial, an interesting porticoed square, ideal to relax and enjoy a meal in one of the many restaurants.
In Nou de la Rambla Street is located the Palau Güell, a beautiful palace of recommended visit where you will be able to appreciate all the creative capacity of Antoni Gaudí. Afterwards the great gothic Shipyards. The Rambla ends in the port, dominated by the Columbus Monument, built in 1888.

Some of the modern facilities are the inheritance from the 1992 Olympics. Their mark can also be seen on the hill at Montjuïc, beside the monumental work from the 1929 World Exhibition. The Plaça d'Espanya, the Magic Fountain, the Palau Nacional and the Olympic Ring are a few of its most important works. The Olympic Stadium, the Calatrava Tower and the Sant Jordi Sports Centre.

La Ribera quarter was in Roman times a place for country homes. In the 6th century, the area was dominated by a Christian necropolis. The first monastery was raised here in the 11th century. In the 13th century it was a busy tradesmen’s district and Passeig del Born was Barcelona’ s main square from the 13th to the 18th centuries. Jousting tournaments, executions and other public entertainments took place in the Middle Ages.
The Santa María del Mar church is one of the best examples of 14th century Catalonian Gothic architecture. It is the work of the architect Berenguer de Montagut and was the templeof the shipowners and merchants in Gothic Barcelona. Seen from the outside, its appearance is solid and robust, dominated by straight lines. The inside consists of three naves, an ambulatory and is without a transept. The amazing height of the central nave with its majestic octagonal columns stands out.
The Palau de la Música Catalana was built between 1905 and 1908 by the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner and it is an architectural jewel of Catalan Art Nouveau, the only concert venue in this style to be listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO (4th December 1997), which today represents an essential landmark in the cultural and social life of Catalonia.
 
The Santa Caterina market building was constructed on the former site of the Convent of Santa Caterina, from which it takes its name. The refurbishment of Barcelona’s first covered food market by the architectural practice of Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue was completed in 2005. The food market revealed a gleaming, undulating and brightly coloured roof designed to be seen from the air. The roof is attached to the building by a wooden structure, and a vast mosaic of coloured ceramic pieces, representing fruit and vegetables, boldly breaks with the traditional look of a market.
 
The Picasso Museum in Barcelona is a clear example of the ties Pablo Picasso had with the city of Barcelona. Here, he not only received sound academic training but also the artistic effervescence that lit the fire and opened the doors towards modernism.
Inaugurated in 1963, the Picasso Museum not only owns the most important and exhaustive collection of the works of art from Pablo Picasso's youth and period of training but also holds temporary exhibitions of other artists related to this artistic figurehead.

Its early city centre, which was surrounded by walls during Roman times, makes up what today is the Gothic and Jewish Quarter.

Surrounding Barcelona's impressive gothic Cathedral, medieval palaces emerge, such as Casa dels Canonges and Casa d´Ardiaca. The Plaça del Rei brings together another labyrinth of marvellous buildings, such as the Palau Reial Mayor and the Chapel of Santa Ágata. The Plaça Sant Jaume holds the Palau de la Generalitat (headquarters of the Catalan government) and the City Hall.
The oldest synagogue in Europe dating back to 1306 is in Barcelona. The site of the older Call of Barcelona –the Call Major– is located between l’Arc de Santamon, Call, Bisbe and Sant Sever Streets. In the mid-13th century, the geographic space designated to the Jewish community was amplified. On the outskirts of what is today the Church of Sant Jaume, the Call Menor (Minor) sprouted and thrived.

Flamenco is a genuine Spanish art, and to be more exact an genuine Southern Spanish art. It exists in three forms: Cante, the song, Baile, the dance, and Guitarra, guitar playing.

Gypsies are very often named as its fathers, and at least it can be taken for certain that they played an important part in its creation. But also the popular songs and dances of Andalucia have influenced early Flamenco considerably.

Certainly there were other influences, too, as it will not surprise in a country that has been dominated by most diverse cultures and civilizations during its different historical epochs. There were the legendary Tartessos, and seven centuries of Muslim occupation hardly could have passed without leaving traces. All that, directly or indirectly, influenced Flamenco.

Its early city centre, which was surrounded by walls during Roman times, makes up what today is the Gothic Quarter. Narrow streets, with quiet squares and attractive corners, are home to an abundant collection of Gothic buildings, both civil and religious. Surrounding Barcelona's impressive gothic Cathedral, situated on the site of a Paleochristian basilica. Construction began during the Romanesque period but was finally completed during the Gothic period, which is the dominant style. The interior naves are at nearly the same height, which causes the impression of being in a single site. The dome base is covered on the inside with handcrafted woodwork. The door from the cloister to the cathedral and the chapel of Santa Lucía are of great interest.
 
The Plaça del Rei brings together another labyrinth of marvellous buildings, such as the Palau Reial Mayor and the Chapel of Santa Ágata. The Plaça Sant Jaume holds the Palau de la Generalitat (headquarters of the Catalan government) and the City Hall.
The urban development of the central area of Barcelona was defined, towards the end of the 19th century, by the Eixample (urban expansion). An extensive grid, with large avenues and chamfered corners, joined the irregular layouts of old districts and outlying towns to the surrounding hills. The emerging Catalonian bourgeoisie chose this place to build its mansions and palaces, following the most daring principles of Modernism. Works by Gaudí, such Casa Milà “La Pedrera”, Casa Batlló and the temple of the Sagrada Familia (the Holy Family) are just a few of the many modernist gems treasured by the city. The Sagrada Familia great expiatory temple: in 1883 the brilliant Gaudí agreed to direct this work, succeeding Francisco de Paula. The artist worked on it until his death. Work to complete this great church still continues today.
One of the main arteries of the historic quarter, La Rambla, leads to the Mediterranean Sea, and it is one of the best places to catch the rhythm of the city. The visitor is led through its different sections, from the Romanesque church of Santa Anna, to the bird and flower stalls, passing gorgeous examples of Baroque and Renaissance architecture on the way.
Barcelona overlooks the sea, and it has a waterfront that encompasses many different artistic styles. Les Drassanes, formerly a dockyard and now home to the Maritime Museum, and the Llotja del Mar are part of the medieval port facilities. Arcaded houses lead to the Olympic Village, the beaches and the Port Olímpic.
Park Güell seems as if it were taken from the pages of a fairytale: strange, eccentric, even dream-like, but undeniably beautiful. A stroll through the park will awaken even the sleepiest imaginations. The peculiar shapes and daring color combinations mixed in with the park’s vegetation create a unique world to which visitors feel irresistibly drawn.

The moreneta of Montserrat. The adoration of this Virgin extended all over South America when the monk Bernat Boil accompanied Christopher Columbus to the New World.

 

It is said that an image of the Virgen de Montserrat appeared in a cave in the mountain. Situated 45 kilometres Northwest of Barcelona, the monastery was founded by Abbot Oliba in 1025, although there is evidence that in the year 888, there was a chapel dedicated to the Mother of God. In the 12th century the Romanesque church was built and in 1223, the first European School for child singers. Leon XIII declared the Virgin of Montserrat patron saint of Catalunya. In the year 1500, San Ignacio de Loyola arrived as a pilgrim. The library has over 300,000 books. We have a choir school. There is a museum with paintings by artists such as El Greco, Picasso and Dalí. There are even treasures from ancient Egypt, amongst which one of the most outstanding treasures is a mummy. Montserrat lost most of its heritage during the Napoleonic Wars. However, since the Monastery was restored in 1844, the Museum has formed a valuable collection of artistic works. Private donations, from the artists themselves, and the sensitivity of the monks have made this possible. The Museum is divided into different sections organised in an instructive way. There are 13th century documents that prove that a choir school already existed in Montserrat. It was a religious and musical institution, made up by choir boys.

Casa de la Vila, a nineteenth-century Gothic revival building and Palau Maricel, with Renaissance, Baroque and medieval elements, are other interesting places to visit in the city. The Modernist aesthetics from the late nineteenth century and the early twentieth century left in Sitges beautiful buildings like Cau Ferrat, the house-studio of writer and painter Santiago Rusiñol. This artist moved to Sitges in 1891 and turned it into a meeting point for artists and intellectuals, giving it the bohemian air that it still preserves. The house-studio of Rusiñol exhibits his works next to paintings by El Greco, Zuloaga and Picasso, among others. At the Maricel Museum they have Romanesque, Gothic and Modern art collections.

 

We will also visit a Cava or Wine Cellar in the Penedés wine/cava area located at 45 minutes from Barcelona. Cava is the local sparking wine (Catalonian champagne).

The so-called "City of the Four Rivers", shows us a historic centre dominated by medieval buildings and reminders of Romans, Arabs and Jews. Inside the walled enclosure of "La Força Vella" you can find the culiminating works of its historical destiny. One of the rivers, the Onyar, divides the historic centre from the modern city.

 

The old centre of this Catalan city preserves remains of its long history, from the time it was founded by the Romans in the 1st century B. C. To them we owe its original wall, whose remains stretch from the Archaeological Walk to the Wall Gardens.

 

Set in this walled enclosure (La Força Vella), stands the Cathedral. Its Romanesque origin is shown in its fortress-like appearance and strategic location, although the most outstanding aspect is an immense Gothic nave, the widest in Medieval European architecture. Inside, it preserves one of the textile jewels of Catalan Romanesque, the Creation Tapestry.

 

Girona has other key pieces of religious architecture, like the Benedictine monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants. The convent of Sant Doménech, built in Gothic style and a clear example of the importance of the religious orders in the colonisation and repopulation of Catalonia during the Middle Ages, stands amid gardens.

 

Also to this historical period belong important displays of Arab and Jewish art, the result of these cultures living side-by-side with Christianity for centuries. So, you will discover the multitude of small streets making up El Call, the Jewish quarter of Girona. Calle Força is the heart of this district, which had a synagogue and centres of cabbalistic study. The Call is currently one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in Spain.

 

In the 12th century, Jews moved to a lower part of the city. In 1160 they were already inhabiting the Call, the name given to Jewish quarters in Catalonia. It is a name coming from Latin callis (street), which would become carrer in Catalan and calle in Spanish. In medieval times, call meant a "group of narrow streets". These paved, narrow and labirynth streets constituted the urban space where most of the Jewish population in Girona settled in the 13th and 14th centuries. The community's main body was formed by tradesmen and craftsmen: tailors, shoemakers, weavers, barbers, furriers, blacksmiths, goldsmiths and silversmiths opened their workshops in the Call´s narrow streets. Others devoted their time to medicine and astrology, while those who had the means became money-lenders. In Girona there is The Bonastruc ça Porta Centre, located in the emblematic building that housed the last synagogue of Girona, is currently the home of the Museum of the History of the Jews and the Nahmanides Institute for Jewish studies.

 

Not far from here, a Capuchin convent houses the Arab Baths, where we should point out a pavilion built on eight fine columns and crowned by an octagonal cupola.

Figueres, county capital of Alt Empordà, extends over a river plain situated inland in the province of Girona. Known as the home of Salvador Dalí, this town with deep Catalan roots offers visitors the chance to go to the Dalí Theatre-Museum, dedicated to the genius of surrealist painting.

 

The Dalí Theatre-Museum is without doubt, however, one of the historical milestones that has left the greatest mark on the character of the town was the birth of Salvador Dalí. Situated in the old municipal theatre, has become one of the main cultural places to see in the city. Designed by the artist himself, it holds an important exhibition, which, through numerous works, allows you to take a trip through the career of the main considered a master of Surrealism.

Its early city centre, which was surrounded by walls during Roman times, makes up what today is the Gothic Quarter. Narrow streets, with quiet squares and attractive corners, are home to an abundant collection of Gothic buildings, both civil and religious. Surrounding Barcelona's impressive gothic Cathedral, medieval palaces emerge, such as Casa dels Canonges and Casa d´Ardiaca. The Plaça del Rei brings together another labyrinth of marvellous buildings, such as the Palau Reial Mayor and the Chapel of Santa Ágata. The Plaça Sant Jaume holds the Palau de la Generalitat (headquarters of the Catalan government) and the City Hall.

The Santa María del Mar church is one of the best examples of 14th century Catalonian Gothic architecture. It is the work of the architect Berenguer de Montagut and was the temple of the shipowners and merchants in Gothic Barcelona. Seen from the outside, its appearance is solid and robust, dominated by straight lines. The inside consists of three naves, an ambulatory and is without a transept. The amazing height of the central nave with its majestic octagonal columns stands out.

One of the main arteries of the historic quarter, La Rambla, leads to the Mediterranean Sea, and it is one of the best places to catch the rhythm of the city. The visitor is led through its different sections, from the Romanesque church of Santa Anna, to the bird and flower stalls, passing gorgeous examples of Baroque and Renaissance architecture on the way and the Boquería Market. And the terraces, pubs and bars should not be forgotten because they are where one of the most deeply-rooted of all traditions of Spain is carried out: the “tapeo” (Tapas are essentially snacks. Bigger portions that are ordered to make up part of a meal are called raciones).

Barcelona: Gaudi & Domenech Masterpieces Half Day City Tour

The urban development of the central area of Barcelona was defined, towards the end of the 19th century, by the Eixample (urban expansion). An extensive grid, with large avenues and chamfered corners, joined the irregular layouts of old districts and outlying towns to the surrounding hills. The emerging Catalonian bourgeoisie chose this place to build its mansions and palaces, following the most daring principles of Modernism. 

The Sagrada Familia great expiatory temple: in 1883 the brilliant Gaudí agreed to direct this work, succeeding Francisco de Paula. The artist worked on it until his death. Work to complete this great church still continues today. The first architect to work on this project planned a Neogothic building. However, following his death, Gaudí took over, respecting the original layout of the work, but soon leaving the mark of his personality and way of doing things. He finished only the chapel of San José, the crypt and the door of El Nacimiento. The façades and the entire exterior show extensive decorative elements in bright colours. La Pasión entrance has a cryptogram there.

The Modernist Sant Pau Complex was built between 1905 and 1930 and designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner as a garden city for nursing the sick. After being used as a public hospital for a century, its newly refurbished pavilions shine again in all their splendour. A visit to this exceptional architectural ensemble is a unique experience. This is Europe’s foremost art-nouveau complex and an icon among Barcelona’s dazzling array of landmarks which embodies the city’s innovative spirit. It was awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO in 1997 and now its architectural and artistic values have been brought to a wider audience with the new use of its pavilions.

Park Güell seems as if it were taken from the pages of a fairytale: strange, eccentric, even dream-like, but undeniably beautiful. A stroll through the park will awaken even the sleepiest imaginations. The peculiar shapes and daring color combinations mixed in with the park’s vegetation create a unique world to which visitors feel irresistibly drawn.

The urban development of the central area of Barcelona was defined, towards the end of the 19th century, by the Eixample (urban expansion). An extensive grid, with large avenues and chamfered corners, joined the irregular layouts of old districts and outlying towns to the surrounding hills. The emerging Catalonian bourgeoisie chose this place to build its mansions and palaces, following the most daring principles of Modernism. Works by Gaudí, such Casa Milà “La Pedrera”, Casa Batlló and the temple of the Sagrada Familia (the Holy Family); Casa Amatller of Josep Puig i Cadalfach and Casa Lleó-Morera of Lluís Domènech I Montaner are just a few of the many modernist gems treasured by the city.
 
Casa Milà, better known as La Pedrera (Catalan for “The Quarry”), is a building designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. It is located in the Eixample district of Barcelona. It was built for Roger Segimon de Milà. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Works of Antoni Gaudí”. The building does not have any straight lines. Most people consider it magnificent and overwhelming; some say it is like waves of lava or a sand-dune. This building seems to break our understanding of conventional architecture. The most astonishing part is the roof with an almost lunar appearance and dreamlike landscape.
Casa Batlló building looks very remarkable, like everything Gaudi designed, only identifiable as Modernisme or Art Nouveau in the broadest sense. The ground floor, in particular, is rather astonishing with tracery, irregular oval windows and flowing sculpted stone work. It seems that the goal of the designer was to avoid straight lines completely. Much of the façade is decorated with a mosaic made of broken ceramic tiles (trencadís) that starts in shades of golden orange moving into greenish blues. The roof is arched and was likened to the back of a dragon or dinosaur.
The Museu de Modernisme Català is housed in a centrally located modernista building designed by the architect Enric Sagnier.n The top floor of the MMCat showcases the furniture and decorative arts and has a room dedicated to Antoni Gaudi. The ground floor displays paintings, sculptures and stained glass.

Besalú a lovely town with cobbled streets and façades which are the most distinguishable feature of the city center. The rich medieval legacy brings the visitor closer to both religious and civil constructions, and to the vestiges of a Sephardic quarter that used to exist in this town during the Middle Ages. Civil architecture works include the 12th-century Romanesque bridge that crosses the Fluvià river; the building of Cùria Real, devoted to law enforcement; and the residence of Cornellà, with a great Romanesque arcaded gallery.

Among religious monuments, we must point out the churches of Sant Pere, Santa María, and Sant Vicenç, alternating Romanesque and Gothic elements. Also worthy of note is the lavish ornamentation of the church of Sant Julià (17th century). In addition, in the Jewish quarter we can visit medieval public baths (Mikwé) that were devoted to Hebrew ritual ablutions.

The Commerce Square with the beautiful façade of the Church of Nossa Senhora da Conceiçao Velha. The Church’s greatest highlight is its Manueline Portal representing Our Lady of Mercy, which was part of the ancient Misericórdia Church, featuring a tympanum with the images of the king D. Manuel the 1st, the Queen D. Leonor (sister of King Manuel and founder of the Order of Mercy) and Pope Leo X, the Rossio square and the gothic revival elevator de Santa Justa.

The castle of Sao George is located on one of the seven hills of Lisbon, to the east of the Baixa. In the context of the Christian Reconquista the castle and the city of Lisbon were retaken from the Moors by King Alfonso Henriques with the help of Northern European crusaders taking part on the Second Crusade. The castle was dedicated to Saint George in the late 14th century by King John I.
 
Lisbon's ancient cathedral was built by Portugal's first king on the site of an old mosque in 1150 for the city's first bishop, the English crusader Gilbert of Hastings. From outside (with two bell towers and a splendid rose window) it resembles a medieval fortress, while inside it appears predominantly Romanesque, with a Gothic choir and ambulatory.
 
Jewish people were the advisors of Kings and Queens, doctors and even some of the explorers, geographers and mathematicians. The tour will start with a general introduction to the Jewish presence of the city, followed by a nice walk in the city centre passing by the site of the 1506 Jewish Massacre near the Church of Sao Domingos and the most well preserved Alfama Jewish and medieval Quarter.

With the abolition of the Inquisition in 1821, families of Sephardic Jews decided to return to Portugal. Most of these Jews were merchants from Morocco and Gibraltar. These were people with a cultural level greatly above average. They could read, speak and write in liturgical Hebrew, Arabic, English and Hakitia, the Moroccan judeo-hispanic dialect.
 
We will continue our tour with a visit to the only Synagogue of Lisbon (Shaaré Tikvá), passing by the Commerce Square, the place where thousands of Jews were forced to be baptized in the 15th century.

Fado (translated as destiny
or fate) is a music genre which can be traced from the 1820s in Portugal, but
probably with much earlier origins. It is characterized by mournful tunes and
lyrics, often about the sea or the life of the poor. The music is usually linked
to the Portuguese word saudade, a word with no accurate English translation.
(It is a kind of longing, and conveys a complex mixture of mainly nostalgia,
but also sadness, pain, happiness and love). Some enthusiasts claim that Fado's
origins are a mixture of African slave rhythms with the traditional music of
Portuguese sailors and Arabic influence.

Lisbon: Full Day Excursion to Queluz, Sintra, Cascais and Estoril

The Queluz Palace was begun
in 1747 by the Infante Dom Pedro (later to become Dom Pedro III) on the basis
of a former country mansion of the Marquises of Castelo Rodrigo. The Palace
(classified as a National Monument at that time began to be adapted for use
as a summer seat of the Royal Family.

 

The main body of the Palace,
erected by 1758, with its low sinuous forms and harmonious intimist decoration,
was completed after the marriage of the Infante Dom Pedro to Dona Maria Francisca,
the future Dona Maria I (1760), at which time the opulent interior halls were
embellished, as were the luxurious Palace gardens, which were endowed with Baroque
fountains, statues and places for recreation.

 

Sintra is one of the most
delightful places to be found in Portugal. With its extensive range of green
bills with its crags - the Serra de Sintra - so picturesquely situated and offering
stupendous views of the coastline with its impressive beauty, Sintra is indeed
"a garden of the earthly paradise". The artistic heritage of the Old Town, described
by Byron as "the most pleasing in Europe", also include valuable archaeological
remains, particularly from the Roman period, ancient manor houses, churches
of personalised artistic value and characteristic villages.

 

Cascais was a small fishing
port throughout early history as it lies protected from nature's elements at
the mouth of the Rio Tejo. When in 1870 the King, Luís I, chose to convert the

Sintra is one of the most
delightful places to be found in Portugal. With its extensive range of green
bills with its crags - the Serra de Sintra - so picturesquely situated and offering
stupendous views of the coastline with its impressive beauty, Sintra is indeed
"a garden of the earthly paradise". The artistic heritage of the Old Town, described
by Byron as "the most pleasing in Europe", also include valuable archaeological
remains, particularly from the Roman period, ancient manor houses, churches
of personalised artistic value and characteristic villages.

 

The National Palace is consisting
of various bodies built during the course of successive epochs on the so-called
"Chão da Oliva", the Paço da Vila de Sintra is one of the most important examples
of regal architecture in Portugal and for that reason is classified as a National
Monument. This gradual multiplication of buildings, with different styles, is
largely responsible for the enigmatic enchantment of this ancient palace, dominated
by great twin chimneys atop the kitchen that constitute as authentic ex-libris
of Sintra.

 

Cascais was a small fishing
port throughout early history as it lies protected from nature's elements at
the mouth of the Rio Tejo. When in 1870 the King, Luís I, chose to convert the
17th Century building of the Citadela into his summer residence Cascais soon
became a very fashionable town and aristocratic palaces and mansions followed.

In 1148 Dom Afonso Henriques
recaptured the town of Obidos from the Moors. Later in 1282, the King of Portugal
Dom Dinis made a wedding present of the town Obidos to his new wife Dona Isabel.
It is charming small and fortified town that has been carefully preserved. Impressive
18th Century blue tiles line the walls within the southern gate that is appropriately
known as Porta da Vila and acts as the main entrance.

 

Alcobaça is a town that
became notable in the 12th Century when it was the site for the important construction
of Portugal's largest church. In the month of March in 1147 the fledgling King,
Dom Afonso Henriques, defeated the Moors by capturing the town of Santarém.
As a suitable memory to this splendid victory he vowed to build a magnificent
home for the Order of Cistercians. In the church are the tombs of King Pedro
I and his murdered mistress, Inês de Castro and with this is the tragic story
of the liaison between Pedro and his ever-lasting love for Inês.

 

The well-known fishing
village of Nazaré is now a small town and a popular holiday resort with a boulevard,
bars and restaurants. The inhabitants have retained some of their past as can
be still seen in their own particular style of costume and women still wearing
the traditional dress, a black kerchief and the seven flannel skirts.

 

Located in the region of
Leiria, the small town and Basilica of Fatima is one of the most visited Marian
Shrines in the world. Begun in 1928 and consecrated on 7 October 1953, its 15
altars are dedicated to the 15 mysteries of the Rosary.

 

The painting above the high
altar depicts the Message of Our Lady to the little shepherds, prepared by the
Angel of Portugal, through their encounter with Christ in the Eucharist. Scenes
of the apparitions are represented in stained glass, as well as invocations
from the Litany of Our Lady.

 

The Perpetual Adoration
Chapel is situated at the end of the colonnade, on the eastern side, this chapel
for perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament exposed, is a place of silent
prayer and adoration.

 

The Chapel of Apparitions
in the very heart of the Sanctuary. It was the first edifice constructed in
the Cova da Iria, at the place of Our Lady´s Apparitions. The exact spot is
marked by a marble pillar on which the Statue of Our Lady is placed.

Bairro Alto is a picturesque working class quarter dating from the 16th century that has traditionally been the city's bohemian haunt of artists and writers.  Its grid of streets is quiet during the day, but is transformed at night into the city's vibrant nightlife quarter. Behind colorful and graffiti-ridden façades, is a variety of traditional and international restaurants, tourist-packed Fado Houses, and a multitude of bars and alternative shops that stay open until late at night. Neighboring Chiado is an elegant, sophisticated district of theaters, bookshops, old-style cafes, art nouveau jewelry shops and luxurious international names.
 
The church of Sao Roque with the plainest façade in Lisbon has one of the city's richest interiors. Each of the chapels is a masterpiece of Baroque art but the showpiece is the fourth one on the left, the "world's most expensive chapel." 
 
Created through the efforts of Queen Amélia of Orleans and Bragança, wife of King Carlos I, the Royal Coach Museum, as it was then named, was inaugurated on May 23, 1905. The Museum is containing one of the largest collections of royal coaches in the world.
 
The Palace of the Marquesses of Fronteira was built in 1671 as a hunting pavilion to Dom João de Mascarenhas, 1st Marquis of Fronteira, who received his title from King Alfonso VI of Portugal for his loyalty to the House of Braganza in the Portuguese Restoration War. The palace is still located in a very quiet area, near the Monsanto Forest Park. The house and the garden have glazed tiles representing different themes such as battles or monkeys playing trumpets.

The ruins of the Do Carmo Gothic convent &  church are evocative reminders of the devastation left by the 1755 earthquake. At the time of the earthquake it was the largest church in Lisbon, but today the roofless nave open to the sky is all that remains of the arches and rubble that caved in on the congregation as they were attending mass.

After leaving Lisbon, we will drive to Évora by the countryside roads of Alentejo, for a beautiful sightseeing tour by car. In Évora, we will have enough time to walk in its historical center and "feel" the atmosphere of this town. A world of unexpected contrasts awaits you in the unique city of Evora. It has a history more than two thousand years old. You’ll see labyrinthine streets, squares flooded with light, Renaissance fountains, Moorish courtyards and Gothic doorways and turrets. After reaching the walled city our guide will invite you to visit the enigmatic church of St. Francis and its Chapel of the Bones.
 
The tour will continue up the narrow streets of the old town reaching the Giraldo Square where the Inquisition once had its headquarters. You will also have time to explore the millennium old Roman Temple and have a glimpse at the 12th century cathedral. The distant 16th century Évora thrived with culture and tradition in its university as much as it still does today. During a short visit to the century old university courtyard, you will understand why Évora was once the second most important city of Portugal. The Romans created the elegant temple, battlements and baths, and the Moorish “Yeborah” influenced the urban network of the Mouraria district. Conquered in the time of King Afonso Henriques, the city captured the imagination of the kings of Portugal. King João II chose it for the wedding of his successor to the daughter of the Catholic Monarchs. One of the most ostentatious celebrations ever seen in the late Middle Ages. King Manuel I established his court in Évora as did King João III.
 
Nobility accompanied the monarchs and built luxurious palaces, families such as the Counts of Basto and the Dukes of Cadaval settled here. It was at this time that the Royal Palace and large convents were built, such as the Convent of São Francisco. The Royal Palace is an unusual combination of the Gothic style with the decorative influence of Islam, whilst the Convent of São Francisco is one of the finest churches in Portugal. The 16th Century was a golden age for the city. Artists from Flanders, Italy and Spain flocked here to make their mark. Masters of humanities came from Salamanca and Paris to join the University, which was founded in 1553 and still functions today. Due to its historical significance, UNESCO has classified Évora as a World Heritage site.

All around the peaceful wide streets of Vila Viçosa lined with orange and lemon trees seems to be made of marble. Benches, sidewalks, framing windows and doors are made of this brilliant "white gold", the local marble from the huge quarries outside the city.
 
The next stop will be Arraiolos, where you can enjoy the art of tapestry.
 
This town situated under the ruins of a Moorish castle actually dates back to Celtic times, but is mostly famous for its carpets that originated with the Moors and were later inspired by Persian and Indian designs during the Age of Discoveries. Many of them now cover the most famous houses and palaces in Portugal, and although they are sold all over the country, the biggest bargains are found in many of the shops in Arraiolos.
 
At the end of the day, your driver will take you to the dock.

Includes: Transportation - Full-Day at Disposal, as per itinerary, by Deluxe Vehicle, with English Speaking Fluent Driver (6 - 8 Hours); Expert Guide - Half-day at Disposal, as per itinerary (3 – 4); Entrance fees at Bones Chapel, S. Francisco Church and Medieval Cathedral (Optional).

Note: This itinerary can also be applicable to regular city stays.

Tipping Policy
During your voyage, you will meet staff throughout the ship who provide you with excellent service. Many more crew support those who serve you directly. A discretionary Hotel and Dining charge will be added to your shipboard account on a daily basis for each passenger (including children). This charge will be shared amongst all those who help provide and support your experience, including the waitstaff, stateroom stewards, buffet stewards, and others. Please note, this is a discretionary charge and should you wish to remove it or make any adjustments, you may contact the Purser’s Desk before the end of the cruise.

  • Grill Accommodations: $13.50 USD per person per day
  • Britannia Accommodations: $11.50 USD per person per day

Note: Casino dealers and Spa personnel do not share in the Hotel and Dining charge as not all guests utilize these services.

A 15% gratuity is added to your bar charges and dining room wine account. This is shared amongst the beverage staff and their support staff.

Charges may vary or change without notice.

Shipboard Policies
  • Internet Access
    Guests may access the Internet in each ship’s Internet Centre. Passengers with laptops may access the web via the ship's wireless network, available in every stateroom as well as many public rooms. Charges apply for these services.

  • Pregnancy Policy
    Because onboard medical facilities are limited and shoreside medical care is not always readily available, Cunard Line will not be able to carry passengers who will be 24 weeks or more pregnant by the end of the intended voyage.

  • Smoking Policy
    The safety, comfort and enjoyment of all passengers has always been a key concern at Cunard. With this in mind, smoking is no longer permitted in any public area with the exception of Churchill’s Cigar Lounge and the upper level of G32. Pipe and cigar smoking is only permitted in Churchill’s Cigar Lounge and on the permitted open decks spaces.

    Smoking is not permitted in staterooms or on stateroom balconies.

    Electronic cigarettes may be used in staterooms and on stateroom balconies. However, they are not permitted in non-smoking public areas. Electronic cigarettes that emit a vapor should be used in designated smoking areas only.

  • Special Dietary Needs - Advance Notice Required
    If a passenger has special dietary needs, Cunard must be advised at time of booking or, at the latest, six weeks before sailing. Every effort will be made to comply with such requests.

  • Wheelchair Access & Special Needs
    All passengers requiring specific assistance, facilities, or equipment on board must advise Cunard Line at the time of booking, and are requested to complete a questionnaire after booking, to ensure they have all the information needed to cater adequately for your requirements.

    If you need to bring a wheelchair or mobility scooter on board with you, it is essential that you let Cunard Line know at the time of booking or as soon as the need is known. Any passengers requiring the use of a wheelchair, mobility scooter, or other aids to mobility must provide their own. For the safety of everyone on board and the ship, all wheelchairs, scooters and other aids to mobility, as is the case with all passenger possessions, must be stored inside your stateroom when not in use. Failure to comply with this important safety rule may mean you are disembarked and refused future travel. Part time wheelchair user traveling in a non-wheelchair accessible stateroom must bring a collapsible wheelchair to ensure it can safely fit through the stateroom door and be accommodated in the stateroom. It is not possible to make structural changes to the stateroom layout. Cunard Line reserves the right to require passengers who have booked this accommodation without legitimate reason to move, at their own expense, if necessary.

    Mobility scooters will only be permitted on board if passengers have booked into a wheelchair accessible stateroom, or a suite, as these are the only types of accommodations where mobility scooters can safely be stored. The minimum door width of suites is 53 cm (21 in). The minimum door width of the wheelchair accessible staterooms is 80 cm (31 in). At the time of booking, please let Cunard Line know if you intend on bringing a mobility scooter with you, and they will in turn provide you with a questionnaire for completion to ensure that the accommodation you have booked is appropriate. Please note that wheelchair accessible staterooms are strictly reserved for passengers who are bringing wheelchairs or mobility scooters or who have a requirement for the adapted facilities offered by these staterooms.

    A ship is not always the easiest environment for using a wheelchair or mobility scooter. Although the crew is helpful, they are only able to provide limited assistance to help you in moving around the ship. For this reason, and in order to ensure the safety of the passenger, the ship and all others on board, it is recommended that passengers with disabilities, who require personal assistance in the activities of daily living, including pushing a wheelchair or communication support, be accompanied by a personal assistant or traveling companion to provide these services. Blind/Visually Impaired passengers are recommended to travel with a companion who can help you get your bearings and assist you both on board and ashore. The crew can provide limited arm assistance, and information or directions, but cannot provide sustained or long term assistance.

    Please note that due to applicable safety requirements, the design of the ship or port infrastructure and equipment, in certain ports of call it may not be possible for Cunard Line to offer a shore excursion program, or shuttle bus service, suitable for passengers who are not able to board a coach via the steps with only the aid of their traveling companion.

    Cunard Line reserves the right to refuse passage to any Passenger who has failed to notify Cunard Line of their requirement for special treatment or assistance (including the requirement to use a wheelchair or mobility scooter ). For further information about traveling with disabilities, please contact the specialist Care Access Team at (800)728-6273 (Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm PT) or via email at accessoffice@cunard.com.

    Mobility Ashore

    When choosing your voyage please bear in mind that it may not be possible for wheelchair users to get ashore at ports of call. At the majority of ports visited by the ships, Cunard Line deploys a short ramped low-level gangway, commonly referred to as the ship’s brow. This is normally due to ports with a large tidal range, where a relatively shallow ramp may unavoidably become too steep to use safely during the course of the day with tidal movements. Some examples of ports with a large tidal range (but not an exhaustive list) are: Bilbăo, Brest, La Coruńa, Le Havre, La Rochelle, Lisbon, Vigo, Zeebrugge, Canary Island ports, Hamburg, Boston, Halifax, Portland, Québec, Darwin, Lisbon, Mumbai and San Francisco.

    At ports where it is not possible to use the ship’s brow, all access to shore will be by a narrow stepped gangway known as the accommodation ladder, that pivots to take account of the tide. When the accommodation ladder is in use, you will need some independent mobility in order to walk down the gangway. Each of the ships carries a wheelchair “stair climbing” machine which, where appropriate, may be used to allow wheelchair users to go ashore provided they transfer between their own wheelchair and the wheelchair that is fitted to the stair climber at the top and bottom of the accommodation ladder. The stair climber cannot be used with electric wheelchairs – these will need to be taken ashore separately.

    Service Animals

    Cunard is pleased to permit individuals to bring service animals on board. You must provide notice of the time of booking. Local laws or customs may prevent animals from disembarking at particular ports or countries. It is the passenger's responsibility to consult local customs authorities for requirements and to obtain all applicable documents and health certificates. Service animals are kept in staterooms with their owners.
