In Portugal, I got to see Porto and taste the wine of the same name.

On the way to Lisbon, we stopped in Batalha, one truly beautiful old gothic abbey. Here are some views of it

Lisbon is a charming city on the river Tagus, with many excellent fish restaurants by the water or in town. Ah, grilled sardines! We did visit another old gem, San Geronimo

We went as well to visit Obidos, not far from Lisbon. It is a lovely old town with a little castle, bright streets were the houses are adorned by flowering bougainvillea and occasionally tiles.

Then a long drive to Spain. On the way, we tried to see Gibraltar. However, there was a torrential downpour after 9 months of drought, streets were flowded, water to one's ankles, not a success. It was a relief to get to dry, beautiful Sevilla.
I will add some more pictures in a few days.
