Lisbon's Belem Quarter is historically significant, with numerous key landmarks located here, by the Tagus River. Once the noteworthy residence of Portugal's elite, Belem is where you can see the Monument to the Discoveries - a striking tribute to the almighty Henry the Navigator, with limestone sculptures and a pretty mosaic compass and world map, representing journeys taken by noteworthy explorers. The UNESCO World Heritage Site Belem Tower was once relied on by sailors as the marker for safely reaching home shores and can now be enjoyed as an architectural masterpiece. This five-storey tower overlooks Jeronimo's Monastery - an intricately detailed complex, including maritime motifs and gargoyles among its impressive stonework. Venturing beyond Lisbon, the capital city Evora is a close second when it comes to national monuments. In Merida, the Roman Theatre is still used today, with acoustics that are so effective, the softest whisper can be heard by spectators of live performances. In Madrid, the Pado Museum - one the world's greatest art galleries - displays works by Goya, Raphael and Bosch, among its extensive collection. On Luxury Gold's Spain & Portugal in Style - 14-day tour, these are just some of the iconic sights you can look forward to.
