Portugal to Spain

Jump to last reply

Hi all - I am traveling with a friend to Portugal in the fall. She can only go for about a week so I am considering adding another week on and seeing some of Spain as well while I am there. I will be leaving from Lisbon to make my way into Spain...since I will be alone I don't want to drive...my first choice of travel would be as much train as possible but I will consider bus and plane where it makes more sense. Here are my questions:

- For those of you who traveled in Spain or are familiar with it - if you could only go to one city in Spain (and day trips from there) where would you go ?

- If you had to get to that city from Lisbon how would you do it? ;)

- Given the choice bw Madrid and Seville would you have a preference? I know from research I could take a night train from Lisbon to Madrid and I know I could fly home right from madrid...is it a nice city? I also know i could take a combination of a bus and a train or maybe all buses to Seville and I think I could fly home from there too...anyone done that? Worth the effort? Or should I look at Granada instead?

All thoughts welcomed :)
