Granada Resorts
Most visitors to this city in southern Spain do not leave the area without touring the Alhambra, a palace and fortress complex of the Moorish monarchs. Granada was the last city to be conquered by the Catholics in the late 1400s, so it has a distinct Arab air to it. Shop for ceramics, silver and intricate woodwork in the many streetside markets.

Lisbon Resorts
On the southwest coast of Portugal, Lisbon is often called the "Sunniest Capital in Europe." Belem Tower is probably its best known landmark; this sixteenth-century fortress was the starting point for many Portuguese explorations, and the last sight sailors would see as they left their homeland. Another famous sight: the magnificent Jeronimos Monestary. For children, Lisbon's Oceanarium, one of the largest aquariums in the world, is especially entertaining.
