Maybe Spain’s next door neighbor, Portugal?

Why not?  It features lots of charm from it’s colonial heritage, impressive architecture, and smaller crowds and lower hotel prices.  Moreover,  it has world-class beaches, mild Spring temperatures and unique history and culture.  Also, they speak  their own language!  It is one of the least -visited capitol cities in the world.  Lisbon seamlessly blends it’s rich history with a cosmopolitan capital city vibe, combining the two to form one exceptional experience. If you are looking for a blend of the new and the old, this is it.
