DETAILS

The Iberian Peninsula has been home to the rise of some of the world’s most vibrant cultures and teens will find themselves mesmerized by the extensive history and modern civilization of the Spanish and Portuguese regions. We’ll discover the caves of Sacromonte in Granda—which have been used as homes for thousands of years—dance the night away while learning Flamenco, get lost in Seville Castle’s natural hedge maze, and see the tombs of Isabella and Ferdinand at the Royal Chapel of Granada or Capilla Real de Granada. Then, we’ll ride on the charming streetcars of Portugal’s capital city, Lisbon, and stand beneath Belém Tower which sits at the edge of the Tagus River.

The best places to send your “Wish You Were Here” postcards from:

  • The Synagogue of Santa María La Blanca in Toledo, Spain—thought to be the oldest synagogue in Europe
  • The white-sand beaches in Málaga, Spain—the birthplace of artist Pablo Picasso
  • Saint George’s Castle in the Portuguese capital of Lisbon
