Mail Loves. Spain & Portugal

Together, the combination of Spain and Portugal become one of Europe's dream travel packages. These close-knit neighbours are home to swirling cities that are ideal for short breaks - Spain's coastal celebrity Barcelona, the chic Portuguese capital Lisbon. Yet here, also, is a treasure trove of hidden gems - Portugal's historic city of Porto with its rich heritage. Or, if you fancy a cruise, you can enjoy both countries on one classic voyage - calling at less-seen ports like La Coruna and Cadiz. And all of it is barely two hours away. Perfection.
