Portuguese Christmas Trees If you would like to experience what Christmas decorations are like in the Iberian peninsula, you should visit the cities of Lisbon and Porto in Portugal. These cities are transformed into fairytale towns with exquisite Christmas decorations. This Tree was found near the Jeronimos Monastery, Lisbon. It is entirely made of lamps.
SPAIN'S OLIVE OIL GREENWAY Nearly 20 percent of the world’s olive oil (and half of Spain’s) comes from Jaén, in Andalucia. A 34-mile trail called the Vía Verde del Aceite, or Olive Oil Greenway, was once a working railroad that transported olive oil to market. Today, the abandoned rails have been converted into walking and cycling paths that run through half a dozen small towns and into the city of Lucena—surrounded by olive groves the entire way.
