My family and I will be in Portugal from 2-9 August, reuniting with some former European exchange students. Thanks to this excellent site and books, we have a good idea on what to see and do to fill that week.
My 16yr old daughter and I, however, will stick around a few more days in Europe and I’m wondering what people would recommend as far as “off the beaten path” in the Iberian peninsula. She loves art and I’d love to find an interesting art or cultural festival to go see and participate in together. Our dates are roughly 9-12 August and we will fly back to the States from Lisbon, so don’t want to venture too far from there. I’m happy to easyjet it to Madrid, for instance, for our little adventure.
