On board MS EUROPA from Bilbao to Barcelona
Grace – Southern Europe’s Masterpieces
A fairytale-like legacy of the Moors against the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada, an old Islamic metropolis which is nowadays home to Andalusia’s temperament or the mighty cathedral of Santiago de Compostela – look forward to magnificent moments in Spain. In Lisbon, charming alleys and tile-adorned houses testify to the history of the erstwhile seafaring nation. On board the EUROPA, the music of Flamenco and Fado, of passion and melancholy, fills the air. A beautiful late summer all around the Iberian Peninsula.
