This excursion is not possible during event days.

Madrid - Toledo - Lisbon
   
After breakfast, drive south towards the impressive imperial city of Toledo. Toledo is known as the “city of the three cultures”, because Christians, Arabs and Jews lived together here for centuries. Behind its walls Toledo preserves an artistic and cultural legacy in the form of churches, palaces, fortresses, mosques and synagogues. This great diversity of artistic styles makes the old quarter of the capital of Castile - La Mancha an open-air museum, which has led to it being declared a World Heritage Site. The panoramic city tour includes views of some of the important monuments, the narrow streets and the famous “Damasquinado” (gold and silver inlaying in iron). Continuing your drive, arrive over the 'Ponte 25 de Abril' - the suspension bridge across the River Tagus, in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. On arrival check-in at your hotel for a two-night stay.

This afternoon, depart for Fátima to visit the Sanctuary of our Lady of the Rosary.

This morning, begin your drive towards the Mediterranean coast. Continue north to Valencia, the capital of the autonomous community of Valencia and the third largest city in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona. Few cities like Valencia, are able to harmoniously combine the remnants of its farthest past, dating to the year 138 BC, with the most innovative and avant-garde buildings from the new millennium.
