In August 2019 Learned Friends is travelling to Seville and Lisbon (Monday 19 August – Monday 26 August).

Seville is often referred to as a doorway to the past. Its historic centre, lorded over by a colossal Gothic cathedral, is an intoxicating mix of resplendent Mudejar palaces, baroque churches and winding medieval lanes. Flamenco clubs keep the intimacy and intensity of this centuries-old tradition alive whilst aristocratic mansions recall the city’s past as a showcase Moorish capital and, later, a 16th-century metropolis rich on the back of New World trade.

But while history reverberates all around, Seville is as much about the here and now as the past. It’s about eating tapas in a crowed bar or seeing out the end of the day over a drink on a buzzing plaza.

Lisbon is the stunning capital of Portugal, and is reported to be one of the most charismatic and vibrant cities of Europe. It is a city that effortlessly blends traditional heritage, with striking modernism.

As a destination, Lisbon offers a rich and varied history, a buzzing nightlife and is blessed with a glorious year-round climate. 

The Portuguese capital is frequently recognised as one of the greatest cities in the world. It boasts a wide choice of activities and fascinating tourist attractions.
