This three-days coach tour takes us from Spain to the south-westernmost point in Europe, the Cabo San Vicente (Cape St. Vincent). You’ll enjoy the impressive views over the coast and the savage landscapes of this region of southern Portugal, the world-famous Algarve, also well-known because of the cities of Faro and Lagos. On the way back we visit the nature park Parque Nacional de Doñana at the banks of the river Guadalquivir.
The south coast of Portugal is a favourite holiday destination for tourists and has beautiful beaches and good sports facilities. Here the water is warmer and calmer (characteristic of the Algarve) and the region extends from the border to the Cabo San Vicente. In 1755 Faro, the capital of the Algarve, was destroyed by an earthquake and only a few remnants of the old town are left. Lagos has historical shipyards. Sagres has a 17thcentury fortress and is also the industrial centre for lobster fishing. Cabo San Vicente is the most southwestern point of the European continent.
Donana, paradise of biodiversity, is situated on the right bank of the river Guadalquivir. It is Spain’s largest national park and is one of Europe’s most important nature reserves. The biodiversity found in Donana is the result of the convergence of several ecosystems. In 1980 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Biosphere Reserve. It is an extremely important refuge for birds.
In Donana you’ll see a mosaic of landscapes and ecosystems - its biodiversity is unique in Europe. There are virgin beaches, sand dunes teeming with life, areas with Mediterranean forests, vegetation and swamps (the most characteristic environment of this region). It is because of the wetlands that Donana is considered to be the most important marshland in Europe. The ornithological wealth has always been known, as this region is a fundamental stage of the migration route of many kinds of birds from Asia and Africa.
