The Iberian Peninsula

July 10, 2015

The Iberian Peninsula is home to Spain and Portugal — both undeniably romantic honeymoon spots. The wonders of Spain range from the rich cuisine in Andalucia to the guitar music and vibrant flamenco dance in Seville. As for larger cities: Barcelona boasts a tree-lined promenade, Mediterranean shorelines, and fresh-caught seafood, and Madrid exemplifies a cultured, bustling city complete with shopping, museums, and galleries.

The smaller, more affordable Portugal embodies the romance of a bygone era with places like Porto, a charming Venice-like city. And there’s something for the beach-loving couple in Portugal, too: Albufeira on the southern coast offers golfing, sunbathing, and watersports. Or head to the hills to experience the Algarve region’s way of life with traditional feasts, dancing, and summertime festivals.
