This time we return for a quick look at Lisbon before heading north for small town Portuguese adventures. We'll remember Lisbon's glory days; eat barnacles with a fisherwoman; learn the story of Portugal's "Romeo and Juliet;" dance on the beach; march with pilgrims on the anniversary of a miracle; sample student life at the Oxford of Portugal and rummage through the riches of Portugal's Golden Age.
Portugal shares the Iberian Peninsula with its neighbor, Spain. From Lisbon, Rick travels north to Nazaré, Alcobaca, Fatima and Coimbra. Get more travel details about Rick's trip.
