Authentic attractions await at every turn, as Braemar takes you closer to four captivating cities in Spain and Portugal. A host of sights will be within walking distance thanks to your smaller ship’s ability to dock centrally in each city, an advantage that’ll be particularly pleasing in Seville, where you’ll be able to savour the spectacular Feria de Abril fireworks.

While this incredible 10-night cruise will provide enriching experiences throughout, your visit to Seville is an undoubted highlight. [ReadMoreMob]Braemar will guide you on an unforgettable journey along the gorgeous Guadalquivir River – a route only accessible to smaller ships – straight into the heart of the Andalusian capital, in time to catch the Feria fireworks. You’ll dock in the perfect position to watch the display light up the midnight sky from your ship, perhaps over a glass or two of your favourite late-night tipple – an experience to remember for years to come. Docking in the heart of the action ensures you’ll be able to stroll to some of Seville’s best highlights with ease the following day too. Step ashore and explore to find the enchanting Parque de Maria Luisa and iconic Plaza de España close-by, then venture deeper into the city to uncover splendid attractions such as Real Alcázar and the grand, UNESCO-listed Gothic Cathedral.

Your time in Spain will also include calls at charming Cádiz and El Ferrol. Again, Braemar will take you closer to the heart of it all in these rewarding destinations. A typically Andalusian ancient maze of narrow cobblestone streets, alleys and squares await your exploration in Cádiz; on foot you can seek-out highlights such as Torre Tavira, Plaza de España and traditional tapas bars. Alternatively, opt to tour to nearby Jerez, for delicious sherry and fantastic equestrian art. El Ferrol, with it rich seafaring heritage and pretty, easy-to-navigate streets, is a delight to explore too. The La Magdalena district, an area of National Historic and Artistic Interest, and the thriving harbour are particular highlights here. There’s a visit to Portugal’s picturesque capital too. Lisbon, shaped by its remarkable maritime history is sure to delight; amongst its quaint backstreets, you’ll discover many fascinating museums and impressive monuments – such as the Bélem Tower – that offer an insight into the city’s past.
