From Leixoes you can visit Portugal’s secondlargest city and the birthplace of port wine, Porto. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, its historic centre is noted for its medieval streets and the 12th century cathedral, where Prince Henry the Navigator was baptised. Admire the outstanding Gothic cloisters, beautifully tiled in blue and white, or step inside to marvel at the chapterhouse. The vineyards of the picturesque Douro Valley are also within reach.

enviable position. Head out on deck as Voyager sails up the River Tagus for spectacular views of the Monument to the Discoveries and the 16th century Belem Tower. Portugal’s capital is also your gateway to the UNESCO-listed Jeronimos Monastery - where the tomb of one of the country’s most famous sons, explorer Vasco da Gama, is located. You can also head to Monserrate Palace and Regaleira Gardens, home to over 2,500 species of plants.

AT SEA 29TH JULY
CADIZ, SPAIN - 30TH JULY 7:00AM - 8:00PM
cadiz-spain.jpg

Step ashore in Cadiz, where the old centre boasts superb Baroque churches and elegant homes painted in pastel shades. Take time to admire the Catedral Nueva (New Cathedral). Work started on this grand structure in the early 1800s and took 116 years to complete. Venture further afield and explore the most seductive of Spanish cities, Seville.

GIBRALTAR, - 31ST JULY 8:00AM - 6:00PM
gibraltar-monkey.jpg

Watch from on deck as the imposing silhouette of the Rock of Gibraltar looms into view. Towering up to 426 metres, you can take a cable car right to the top for excellent views all the way to the coast of North Africa. You’ll also meet the notoriously cheeky Barbary macaques that reside here - they are Europe’s only wild primate.

MOTRIL, SPAIN - 1ST AUGUST 7:00AM - 7:00PM
alhambra-palace.jpg

Voyager next heads to Motril, nestled at the foothills of the Sierra Lujar Mountains. This charming Andalusian coastal town is a gateway to Granada for those wanting to discover one of Spain’s finest architectural treasures, the lavish Alhambra Palace. This imposing piece of Islamic art sits on a hilltop and commands spectacular views. Admire the Nasrid palaces - a collection of rooms designed around a central courtyard - and stroll in the Generalife Gardens to see dancing fountains, tranquil ponds and arched galleries.

CARTAGENA, SPAIN - 2ND AUGUST 8:00AM - 2:30PM
cartagena-spain.jpg

Prized since Carthaginian times thanks to its strategic position on the Murcia coast, Cartagena is a Spanish gem, whose deepwater harbour is flanked by towering fortresses. Discover ancient monuments as you wander the characterful streets of the city from which Hannibal and his army famously set off en route to Rome. The Huerto del Cura, home to a huge range of Mediterranean and tropical plants, is another sightseeing option.

BARCELONA, SPAIN - 3RD AUGUST 12:00PM (OVERNIGHT) - 4TH AUGUST

Set between the sea and the mountains, the unique city of Barcelona is your final port of call. Step ashore to wonder at works of art created by Antoni Gaudi, in particular the towering spires of the magnificent Sagrada Família, under construction since 1882. A walk down the famous Las Ramblas and visits to Park Güell or the Botanical Gardens are further possibilities during your stay in this vibrant city.

DR JOHN HUGHES
john-hughes.jpg (1)

From his earliest days Dr John Hughes has always grown plants with his main passion being cacti and other succulent plants. After working in Peru, he fell in love with all things Latin and with South America in particular. He thinks he has spent over three years of his life there; often back-packing and looking to learn about all manner of plants from alpines to tropical plants. He has been a member of the Royal Horticultural Societies’ Tender Ornamental Plant Committee for over ten years and a judge at major shows such as Chelsea and Hampton Court for much of this time. In his talks he hopes to introduce you to the plants we will encounter when on land.
