Gastronomic cruise in partnership with Relais & Châteaux, in the presence of a Relais & Châteaux Chef.

PONANT invites you to discover sumptuous landscapes and exceptional cities during an 9-day cruise between Portugal and Spain. Be inspired by this unforgettable journey aboard Le Lapérouse as you visit major cities of the Iberian Peninsula.

Throughout your journey, you will benefit from an excursion included per person per port of call, to choose from a selection offered by PONANT. During this cruise, discover the Sagres fort, near Lagos; attend a cavalcade at a finca in Cartagena; or head off to admire one of the Cadiz region's prettiest villages during a panoramic walk. The diversity of experiences on offer promises you intense and varied moments (to discover the full range of excursions, go to the itinerary tab).

Setting sail from Lisbon, the seven-hilled Portuguese capital, you will head south to the beautiful Algarve region and call in Lagos. Its rich maritime heritage and spectacular coastline make this pretty coastal town with its hidden charm so fascinating.   

You will then travel to Cadiz, one of the country's oldest cities, built on a rock and surrounded by the sea. This call will allow those who wish to visit the superb city of Seville.

Le Lapérouse will then chart a course towards Marbella where you can discover a rich ancient heritage, before sailing towards Malaga, the lively cultural capital of the Costa del Sol. To the heart of the old town, its history can be read in its buildings, in particular the 10th century castle built by the Moors. You will also have the possibility of strolling through the picturesque town of Ronda and discovering its famous Puente Nuevo.

Further north, the coastline of Almeria's preserved beaches emerges before you. The easternmost Andalusian city has a remarkable citadel and a cathedral whose towering structure stands in the very heart of the historic centre edged with narrow alleyways and traditional houses with whitewashed walls.

After a port of call in Cartagena, a city with a rich ancient heritage dating back to the Carthaginians and the Romans, you will head for Valencia, a city boasting remarkable architectural heritage.

Finally, you will sail towards Barcelona, your disembarkation port.
