Spain December/ January 2018/19

Jump to last reply

Hi All
Visiting Spain (and maybe Portugal) for the first time Dec 2018-/ Jan- long way off I know!
We are arriving and departing via Madrid and will be using public transport preferably train unless we do join a small tour group.
We are not big Art Gallery fans but do enjoy History, Culture, Architecture, and natural landscapes. We also hope to enjoy some traditional Spanish cuisine and customs. I’d love to see some villages off the main tourist trail but perhaps a little difficult without a car.
Considering the following at this stage with day trips nearby

Madrid 20/12
Granada 21/22
Seville 23-29/12 we will be meeting family for Christmas period
? Lisbon 30-3/01
? Porto 4- 7/01
(Lisbon to) Madrid 8-10/01
Home to Australia 11/01

If we were to spend the entire time in Spain suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
