Spain Tour; Side Trip to Lisbon, Portugal

8 Days Self-Guided Budget Summer Europe Trip with My Mother
August 18 to 25, 2018


I made this side trip from Seville, Spain due to 2 reasons; being just a 7 hours bus travel away from Seville and to complete the countries of Europe continent. Portugal shares the Iberian peninsula at the Southwestern tip of Europe together with Spain. I only visited the capital, Lisbon's Sao Jorge Castle, Lisbon Cathedral, Praca de Comercio and City Center. There is no crossborder checkpoint during the bus travel. We left Lisbon around 1900H from airport going to Rome, Italy.

timezone - UTC +0100H    capital - Lisbon    language - Portuguese    currency - Euro (EUR)
