Welcome to Spain & Portugal
Founded more that a millennium ago as a Muslim fortress town, Spain’s capital city, Madrid, is a cosmopolitan metropolis known for its incredible art collections, inventive cuisine, and lively nightlife. Visiting the city with Tauck, you’ll discover grand avenues such as Gran Via and Castellana, and El Parque del Buen Retiro; walk with a local guide through Plaza Mayor and the Mercado de San Miguel; enjoy a guided visit to the Royal Palace (Palacio de Oriente); and tour one of the greatest museums of them all – the Museo del Prado, which opened its doors in 1819, created by King Ferdinand VII to promote Spanish art and display the Royal Collection. Today, the Prado is home to one of the finest collections of European art anywhere, including works by Goya, Velázquez, El Greco, Bosch, Rubens, Titian and others… and with Tauck, you’ll explore it all with an art expert.
It may have begun life as a Roman settlement, but the Spanish city of Córdoba – in the southern province of Andalucia – first reached greatness as a Muslim stronghold and the capital of a Caliphate, and many of its Moorish influences remain to the day. Reclaimed by the Christian world during the 13th-century Spanish Reconquista, Cordoba has long been known as a multicultural melting pot and a center of Spanish intellectual life. Discover it with Tauck on a walking tour through its Jewish Quarter and a guided visit to the 8th-century Mezquita de Córdoba (La Mezquita) – once one of the world's largest mosques, and now a Roman Catholic cathedral. More than 1,200 years old, it’s an iconic symbol of the city and its multicultural heritage.
A vision of carefully planned, elegant streets, Lisbon’s historic city center greets you with an 18th-century ambiance attesting to its days of glory during the Age of Discovery. Tauck welcomes you to Portugal’s capital with experiences including a visit to Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, built in the 16th century with “pepper money” profits from the spice trade; tours of the Maritime Museum, chronicling the history of Portugal’s pioneering role in sea exploration, and the National Tile Museum, dedicated to the art and history of azulejos, those exquisite glazed ceramic tiles found throughout Portugal; and a Tauck Exclusive private tour and dinner in the Throne Room of the Palacio Nacional de Queluz (Palace of Queluz), a Rococo gem often called the “Portuguese Versailles.”
Originally a small 9th-century fortress that had fallen into disrepair, Granada's famed Moorish palace and UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Alhambra, was reconstructed to become a royal palace and a "paradise on Earth" by the Moorish caliphs who ruled here in the 13th century. A century later, now in Spanish hands, it became Ferdinand and Isabella's Royal Court; even later, a Renaissance palace was built on the site. So you'll encounter tons of history as you tour the palace itselfand stroll through the Generalife, the grounds of the summer palace of former sultans.
Nearly a century after it opened in the heart of Barcelona near Las Ramblas – and soon became one of Spain's leading luxury hotels – the El Palace Barcelona emerges from an ambitious and comprehensive refurbishment designed to recapture the classic style and splendor of its greatest years. The hotel's public areas, presidential suites and standard rooms have been carefully restored with handmade carpets, restored antiques and exact replicas of objects such as lamps and curtains... and on the 7th floor, the romantic new Diana Garden sports more than fifty species of plants, fountains, pergolas and a pool, all inspired by the Barcelona of the 1920s.
