8-Night Iberia Intensive Voyage
On this Iberian golf cruise aboard Azamara PursuitSM, combine the magnificent historic and cultural sites of Portugal, Gibraltar, and Spain with some of the greatest golf courses in the region. Before embarking from Lisbon, explore must-see landmarks like the church of Igreja de São Vicente de Fora, which dates back to the 12th century, and Torre de Belém, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Portugal’s most famous monuments.
In Portimao, tee off at The Faldo Course at Amendoeira Golf Resort, one of the best golf courses in Europe. After your round, lounge on golden cliff-lined beaches and enjoy fresh sardines on the grill. In Cadiz, the heart of the city is its old town, where cobblestone streets pass cozy, café-filled squares. Relax and sip a glass of manzanilla, a light, extra-dry sherry made with the Palomino grape.
On to Gibraltar, where you will play 18 holes at storied Valderrama, host to the 1997 Ryder Cup and consistently rated the #1 course in continental Europe. Next is Málaga, the lively capital of the Costa del Sol. So after playing a round at Finca Cortesin, be sure to find some beach time in this coastal paradise, or explore the excellent museum dedicated to Picasso, who was born here.
With an overnight stay in vibrant Valencia, you’ll have plenty of time to play a round of your dreams at El Saler on the shores of the Mediterranean, and discover the city’s impressive Gothic monuments and palaces.
What better way to conclude your voyage than a night in beautiful, bustling Barcelona? Play a final round at Real Club de Golf El Prat, designed by Greg Norman, and explore this city’s magnificent medieval Gothic Quarter and Antoni Gaudi’s modernist works. Architecture abounds on and off the greens, so you might want to stay a few more days to explore even further.
