The Jerónimos Monastery, masterpiece of the Manueline style and a tribute to the king that welcomed and protected the Jews that fled from Spain and then expelled them in 1496. The Monument to the Discoveries where you will have the opportunity to see the faces of Jewish men that participated actively in the Portuguese Golden Age of the Discoveries.
 
The Monument to the Discoveries celebrates the Portuguese who took part in the Age of Discovery. It is located on the estuary of the Tagus river. The monument consists of a 52 metre-high slab of concrete, carved into the shape of the prow of a caravel with its sails unfurled.
 
Belém Tower is a fortified tower located in the Belém district of Lisbon. It was built in the early 16th century in the Portuguese late gothic style, the manueline, and is one of the symbols of the city.
 
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 heart of the city is the Baixa or city centre; this area is being considered for UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
The Museu Nacional do Azulejo or National tile museum is renowned for not only for its Azulejo (tile) collection but also for its location. Azulejo is a cherished Portuguese tradition that has enjoyed uninterrupted production for five centuries. Azulejo is glazed, ceramic tilework that is usually blue. It is a major component of Portuguese architecture and is found throughout the country on ceilings, floors, walls of churches, palaces, and homes. This museum occupies the ancient Convent of Madre de Deus (Mother of God), built in 1509 by Queen D. Leonor, and adjoining buildings including Saint Antony’s Chapel and a church noted for its Baroque style.

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. Alfama is a village within a city still made up of narrow streets, tiny squares, churches, and whitewashed houses with tile panels and wrought-iron balconies adorned with pots of flowers, drying laundry, and caged birds. 
 
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.

Lisbon: Fado Show Evening

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

Visit the Royal Palace of Queluz and the pretty and charming village of Sintra, former residence of the
Portuguese Kings and aristocracy. Drive to Cabo da Roca, to the fishing village of Cascais and the famous cosmopolitan town of 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
17th Century building of the Citadela into his summer residence Cascais soon
became a very fashionable town and aristocratic palaces and mansions followed.
The Citadel or Fort of Cascais is a 16th century fortress built to protect the
Bay of Cascais. Today, Cascais now boasts smart new Marina with lovely yachts.

 

Just outside the town is
the famous Boca do Inferno in which the sea on rougher days hammers into the
rock and creates a booming noise and a spectacular spray thus creating its name
which in English means "mouth of hell".

 

Estoril town was really
created from the curious needs of the two World Wars. It became a prime location
for European royal exiles forced to leave their own countries. It has been the
residence of King Umberto II of Italy, Juan de Bourbon of Spain, Karl Hapsburg
of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and King Carol of Rumania. The many modest yet
architecturally interesting mansions still remain to indicate their royal owners.
At its height its visitors referred to Estoril as the "Portuguese Riviera".
A Casino with wide surrounding avenues and spacious gardens, a golf course,
all of which soon appeared and then flanked by large hotels and impressive private
homes.

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.

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.

Lisbon: Full day excursion to Evora
This tour invites you to explore Évora, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage City, due to its excellent preservation along the centuries. Visit the cathedral, the Church of St. Francis and the Chapel of the Bones, the University, the old town and the Giraldo Square.

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.

Inhabited for more than 2,000 years by different Mediterranean civilizations, Málaga is today a city which combines tradition and modernity. Stretching below the watchful eye of the Castle of Gibralfaro is a lively and bustling city crammed with beautiful corners, such as the Alameda Principal, the gardens of Puerta Oscura and Pedro Luis Alonso, the Park, and the beach promenade.
Historic Málaga offers countless spots and corners full of local colour. The Merced square, dominated by the Monument to Torrijos and where the house in which the famous painter Pablo Ruiz Picasso was born is situated. A tour of the historic quarter must take in the busy Pasaje de Chinitas, the old streets of the former jewish quarter and calle Larios, the old town's main thoroughfare.
Established in 1490, Santiago is Málaga's oldest church and it was built on the site of a former mosque. Only the central entrance in the Mudéjar style remains of the original façade. The square tower in the same style was conceived as a separate minaret and was attached to the church in the 16th century. From Calle Granada, a beautiful Almohad sebka (a grid of rhombuses) cloth can be seen in one of its sections. Pablo Ruiz Picasso, the brilliant painter who revolutionised 20th century art, was baptised here in 1881.
Pablo Picasso, the most important painter of the 20th century, was born in 1881 at number 15 Plaza de la Merced. Declared a Historic/Artistic Monument of National Interest in 1983, Casa Picasso began by occupying the first floor and now occupies the entire building. The property nestles in the architectural complex known as Casas de Campos (Rural Houses) where Don José Ruiz Blasco and Maria Picasso, Pablo Ruiz Picasso's parents, lived.  
Málaga's Roman Theatre is one of the remaining symbols of Roman Hispania in the city. In addition to the theatre itself, it has a modern interpretation centre where new technologies present the life and customs of the time. The Theatre has also been returned to its original use and different types of shows take place inside.
 
Buenavista Palace houses a permanent collection showing eight decades of work by Pablo Picasso, who was born in Málaga in 1881. The collection conveys the rigor and creativity of an artist who is essential to understand the history of Western art. Further, temporary exhibitions delve into the artistic context, while the program of activities proposes many ways to enjoy the arts. The collection features 233 works that cover 80 years of the painter's work, from 1892 to 1972. 
In the centre stands the Cathedral (16th-18th centuries), also known as “la Manquita” because of its unfinished right tower. This temple, beautifully executed in the Renaissance style, preserves an interesting series of chapels which contain fine examples of Andalusian images. In the old town, other prominent churches are Santiago (15th-18th centuries), with a beautiful Mudejar tower and Sagrado Corazón.

Malaga: Ronda Full Day Excursion

A drive through the rugged Serrania de Ronda will bring you to a broad open plateau surrounded on all sides by jagged mountains. Ronda stands on an enormous outcrop of rock.

This town in the Málaga region sits on either side of the Tajo del Ronda, a narrow gorge more than 150 metres deep. Celts, Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs all inhabited these lands, which were reconquered by the Catholic Monarchs. The historic quarter, reminiscent of the Arab age and with a medieval layout is scattered to the south of the Guadalevín, while more modern Ronda, the part which sprang up after the 16th century, unfolds to the north of the course of this river.
The major religious work is Santa María la Mayor, where Arab and Christian features combine. On the site of an old Roman temple, the Arabs built the Main Mosque of Ronda in the 13th century. Preserved from this period are the mihrab arch, decorated with stucco, and the minaret, transformed into a belltower.
The House of the Moorish King, meanwhile, boasts Gothic-Mudejar decoration and some hanging gardens, declared to be an Artistic Garden.
The civil architecture of Ronda is reflected in its ancestral homes and aristocratic small palaces such as the Palaces of Mondragón and of the Marquis of Salvatierra. The Mondragón palace was for centuries the residence of Muslim and Christian kings, and today it houses the city's Archaeological Museum.
The San Juan Bosco House is a modernist palace built at the beginning of the 20th century. It is located at the Tajo's edge, at the heart of the historical city quarter of Ronda. It It has got a nice courtyard, decorated with arab style ceramics and a very complete collection of regional ceramics.It is also advisable to see its 19th century tapestries and its walnut furniture.
The gardens are very interesting, due to its placement, being one authentical balcony on to the Serrania.
Three bridges span the ravine measuring more than 100 metres in depth and lead to the other side of the city. The Arab bridge was built in the 14th century and gave access to the Old Outskirts. The so-called old bridge is comprised of a single arch measuring some 10 metres across. But most emblematic of all is the New Bridge, a colossal feat of engineering which joins the neighbourhoods of Mercadillo and Ciudad. And the bullring one of the oldest in Spain and most emblematic for the famous “goyescas” bullfight.

Malaga: Granada Full Day Excursion

Climbing up into the mountains that surround Malaga, we make our way toward the famed city of Granada. At the foot of the Sierra Nevada lies Granada, a city steeped in history of the ancient Moors. Once inside the great Fortress and Palace of the Alhambra, you will feel as if you have been transported into another century as you wander through the Lion's Court and the Room of Secrets.

congregation of gypsies. Then we walk through the exquisitely beautiful Generalife Gardens filled with fountains and flowers.

At the foot of Sierra Nevada,
between the Darro and Genil rivers, lies one of the most interesting cities
in eastern Andalusia. Because it was the last city reconquered by the Catholic
Monarchs in 1492, Granada has an unmistakable Arab flavour. Fountains, viewpoints
and Cármenes, the villas surrounded by gardens typical of the city, add to Granada's
unforgettable charm. Not in vain was one of its oldest districts, the Albaicín,
declared a World Heritage Site, together with the Alhambra and the Generalife.

 

The Alhambra's reddish hills
house the old Alcazaba and the Nazarite Royal Palaces. This artistic gem of
Arab Granada, built between the 13th and the 15th centuries, is composed of
many rooms linked by courtyards, gardens and fountains. Its delicate execution
is evident in such places as the courtyards of Arrayanes and Leones, and in
the Salón de los Embajadores or the Sala de las Dos Hermanas. The Generalife
gardens, the summer residence of the Nazarite Monarchs, is also located on this
hill, along with the Palace of Carlos V, a Renaissance-style building.

 

The Albaicín quarter, with
a deep Arab flavour, is located on another one of the city's hills and can be
seen from the Alhambra. Narrow and steep streets are filled with cármenes (traditional
villas with gardens), old mosques on top of which churches have been erected
(San Salvador, San Bartolomé and San José), and little squares like San Nicolás
and San Cristóbal. Both these spots enjoy great views over the Alhambra and
the peaks of Sierra Nevada.

Malaga: Cultural Half Day City Tour

First settled by the seafaring Phoenicians because of its natural harbour, and later conquered by the Arabs, it finally fell into the Spanish hands in 1487. Overlooking the central part of the city one can see the Gibralfaro Castle, originally Phoenician, and later rebuilt by the Arabs. In the centre of the city we will find the Atarazanas Market, the Sagrado Corazon Church, the old Jewish quarter, the Ben Gabirol Jewish Center, the City Hall, Malaga' s Park and the Bullring.

The Castle of Gibralfaro (14th century), joined to the Citadel by a stretch of wall, gives the best views of the city, which opens out onto the sea with the port and the promenade of La Farola, one of the major leisure areas in the city. At the foot of Gibralfaro is the bullring (known as "La Malagueta") and the historic quarter of the city.
One of Malaga's architectural gems is the Atarazanas Market. The main entrance, an imposing horseshoe archway in off-white marble, is in fact the only remaining part of what was once a grand seven-arched shipyard (Ataranzas in arabic). From shipyard to market, Atarazanas underwent many transformations. Following the fall of the city to the Catholics in 1487, a convent was set up there, afterwards the building was turned into a huge military fort for storing weapons. Later, it became a hospital and even housed a medical school.
 
The Sagrado Corazón Church is located in the Plaza de San Ignacio de Loyola. It is a neo- gothic building constructed in 1920, according to the architectural plans of Fernando Guerrero Strachan, who was commissioned by the Jesuits. It has a basilica, divided into three naves. 
Historic Málaga offers countless spots and corners full of local colour. The façade of the City Hall, from the early 20th century, can be admired. A tour of the historic quarter must take in the old streets of the former jewish quarter, the Ben Gabirol Jewish Center in a House-Tower from the 17th century. The famous Hebrew poet and Jewish philosopher Solomon Ibn Gabirol was born in Malaga. The Juderia or Jewish Quarter was in the eastern part of the city (Postigo de San Agustín, Granada, Santiago, Alcazabilla and Zegrí streets and the Plaza de la Judería), the Synagogue was situated in part of the area where is located nowadays the Bodega el Pimpi Bar Restaurant, and the communal cemetery was on the slopes of Gibralfaro.
Located between the Alameda Principal and the Paseo de España, which runs parallel to Guadiaro Quay, the Malaga's Park extends from the Plaza de General Torrijos to Plaza de la Marina. It is made up of three walkways, each 800 metres long and ten metres wide; one is on the north side and the other two are to the south of the 25 metre-wide central thoroughfare for vehicles, a continuation of the Alameda Principal. It covers an area of 30,000 square metres if we count the rose garden surrounded by orange and cypress trees next to the City Council building and the gardens called Jardines de Puerta Oscura.

the Castle of Gibralfaro is a lively and bustling city crammed with beautiful
corners, such as the Alameda Principal, the gardens of Puerta Oscura and Pedro

quality of the facilities and services it provides. Puerto Banús, one of the
main focal points for tourists in the town, houses an exclusive leisure area
inside the excellent facilities of its marina.

 

But Marbella is also a paradise
for golf lovers. A dozen magnificent courses allow the golfer to play the sport
before the unusual backdrop provided by the sea and the mountains. The historic
part of town, sitting on a beautiful bay, shelters lovely corners of a typically
Andalusian flavour, with whitewashed houses and orange trees adorning the streets
and squares. An ideal setting for sampling any one of the tasty recipes of the
local cuisine.

 

At the foot of the Sierra
Blanca hills, on a beautiful bay, is Marbella's historic quarter. A delightful
layout which displays its typically Andalusian charm through neat whitewashed
façades decorated with grilles and geraniums or the orange trees which spring
up on every corner. The heart of the town is plaza de Los Naranjos, from the
Renaissance period, flanked by noble buildings such as the City Hall (16thcentury)
and the old Chief Magistrate's Office (17th century).

 

In the small church square
you will find the Greater Church of la Encarnación, built in the 16th century.
In this same setting stands one of the two towers which formed part of the city's
old Arab fortress, from the 9th century.

 

The considerable cultural
offer of Marbella is completed by the Spanish Contemporary Engraving Museum,
considered to be the most important of its kind in Spain. Situated in the Hospital
Bazán (16th century), it houses an interesting collection of engravings from
the 19th and 20th centuries, with works by grand masters of the stature of Picasso,
Miró or Dalí.

 

Clear proof of the high
quality of its infrastructure is Puerto Banús, one of the most emblematic spots
in Marbella. Surrounded by exclusive housing developments, this famous marina
each year welcomes some of the biggest and most luxurious yachts in the world.
Its facilities also offer a select leisure area made up of restaurants, business
premises and shops selling the big international designer labels and luxury

The Alcazaba fortress palace, whose name in Arabic means citadel, is one of the city's historical monuments and is much visited because of its history and beauty.

In the center stands the Cathedral (16th-18th centuries), also known as “la Manquita” because of its unfinished right tower. This temple, beautifully executed in the Renaissance style, preserves an interesting series of chapels which contain fine examples of Andalusian images.

Carthaginians and Romans took an interest in this maritime enclave, from whose Latin title, Cartago Nova, comes its current name. Cartagena was also under Arab domination until Fernando III the Saint reconquered it and incorporated it into the kingdom of Castile. Its port was hugely important in the War of Spanish Succession and the in the War of Independence.

The Sea Wall, built by Carlos III (18th century), marks the boundaries of its historic quarter. Facing the Mediterranean are two features which are clearly linked to the sea: the prototype submarine designed by the inventor from Cartagena Isaac Peral and the National Museum of Maritime Archaeology. This museum, on the Navidad dyke, also houses the National Centre of Underwater Archaeological Investigation. Through its discoveries, we can learn about aspects of naval construction, trade and navigation developed in the ancient world.


The entrance to the town centre is dominated by the Palacio Consistorial or City Hall, a gem of modernist architecture from the early 20th century. On the way to the Torres Park (behind the Sea Wall) is the Old Cathedral. It is the oldest church in Cartagena (13th century), whose remains stand on the steps of a Roman Theatre discovered in 1987. This structure dates from the 1st century BC and is one of the most important in Spain along with the theatre in Mérida. Other fine examples of the city's Roman splendour are the remains of the Amphitheatre (in the Bullring), the Molinete Archaeological Zone, the Colonnade of the Lower Moorish Quarter and the Byzantine Wall, which, despite its name, is also Roman. In Torres Park is the Castle of la Concepción. Standing on a hill, it has been a fortress of Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths, Arabs and Castilians.


To see Cartagena's modernist architecture, take a walk around calle Mayor, which starts at City Hall Square, and the surrounding streets. Gathered here are the Casa Cervantes and Casa Llagostera, works by the Cartagena architect Victor Beltrí, whose characteristic features are miradors, ironwork and bronze reliefs of allegorical figures. Other buildings representing this artistic trend are the Casino, the Gran Hotel, the Train Station and the Casa Maestre and Casa Dorda. Next to the walled historic quarter is the Military Arsenal, completed during the reign of Carlos III. Also linked to the history of Cartagena, you can visit the Naval Museum, on the edge of the modern city. Exhibited here are navigating instruments from ancient vessels, maps and charts, alongside models of all kinds of ships. It is also worth visiting the fishing district of Santa Lucía.

Cartagena: Murcia & Cartagena Full Day Excursion
Visit Cartagena with the Sea Wall, the roman theatre, the modernist architecture, the cathedral from the 13th century, the old quarter, City Hall square and Naval museum. Then drive for 45 minutes to the capital city of Murcia to visit the cathedral, Episcopal palace, the church of la Merced & the Salzillo museum.

Next to the walled historic quarter is the Military Arsenal, completed during the reign of Carlos III. 
 
Although the lands of Murcia have been populated for more than 2,000 years, the foundation of Murcia capital did not come until 831, when the emir of Córdoba Abd-al-Rahman II ordered a walled city to be built on the banks of the river Segura and made it into the capital of the caliph's province.
 
The old city sits next to the Segura, with historic streets which have retained the names of the guilds which once occupied them, such as the shopping streets of Platería, Trapería and Vidrieros (Silversmiths, Rags and Glass makers).
The square of Cardinal Belluga houses two of Murcia capital's architectural gems, the Episcopal Palace (18th century), with a rococo façade and a churrigueresque courtyard, and the Cathedral. This temple, which was begun at the end of the 14th century, stands out because of the superimposition of styles. Drawing attention, for example, is its singular and richly-sculptured baroque façade, and, along with it, the tremendous tower measuring 92 meters in height. Outstanding on the inside, meanwhile, is the Vélez Chapel, a magnificent example of the florid Gothic style.
The baroque style is well-represented in Murcia through religious buildings such as the church of la Merced, originally from the 16th century and rebuilt in the 18th century), the convent church of Santa Ana, the church of Santo Domingo, San Nicolás or San Miguel.
It is also worth seeing some of the city's more significant 19th-century buildings. The City Hall, the Romea Theatre and the Casino. This last building has a Neoclassic façade and a beautiful Arab-influenced interior courtyard. The Salzillo Museum contains a delightful collection of processional carvings by one of the most emblematic sculptors of the 18th century.

Naples - Full Day to Capri - 8 hours
Climb aboard the hydrofoil at Naples Port for a full day of fun 'alla Caprese' and discover what keeps the jet set coming back to the enchanted Isle of Capri, from 1st C Emperor Caesar Augustus to 20th C fashion icon Jackie O...
Your trip begins at the Port of Naples - one of the Mediterranean's busiest seaports and the jumping off point for the hydrofoil to Capri. During the roughly 45-minute crossing, your guide will regale you with stories of the people, places and history that have made this four-mile block of limestone so legendary. Once on the island, visit Marina Grande, the main port and a seaside gem with a jumble of multicolored traditional houses, terraced slopes bursting with Mediterranean blooms and jaw-dropping mountains rising up behind. The tour continues by funicular railway to Capri Town. Perched on the saddleback between the island's main mountains, this is where the see-and-be-seen set sips Bellinis on La Piazzetta and high fashion boutiques and artisan workshops line the narrow, elegant streets. And finally, we take a taxi over the gentle slopes of Monte Solaro to Ana Capri, the island's "second city" perched on a verdant plateau. Despite its popularity, Ana Capri still retains its original charms, with cobblers and embroiderers peddling their wares and bougainvillea draping the characteristic whitewashed houses that show its Moorish influence. One highlight of this end of the island is Villa San Michele. Built at the turn of the 20th century by Swedish physician, nature lover and Renaissance man Axel Munthe, we'll visit its lush gardens, charming museum and quaint chapel. More adventurous types might enjoy a chairlift ride up to the summit of Monte Solaro for 360-degree views of this inimitable landscape, before returning to Marina Grande for the hydrofoil.
