Overview

That’s the true beauty of travel with a Eurail Select Pass including Portugal and Spain from Rail Europe. It takes two countries with great weather and plenty of beaches, world-class museums and natural beauty and links them with unlimited rail travel so you can explore.

In the homelands of Ponce De Leon and Vasco Da Gama, that seems only right. There are the historic centers of Old Madrid and Barcelona, Sintra and Coimbra with their royal palaces, cathedrals and monuments. There’s Madrid’s Prado Museum, which includes many of Europe’s greatest works, including those by El Greco, Velazquez and Goya.

And don’t miss Lisbon’s spectacular Mosteiro dos Jeronimos monastery and its distinctly Portuguese Manueline architecture. Whatever you decide to see, you’ll see more of Spain and Portugal traveling by train with a Eurail Select Pass from Rail Europe. And unlike those earlier explorers, you’ll wind up exactly where you wanted. Perfect.
