It sounds like a mess with trying to cram too much into too little. You will spend several days traveling. If I can give you any advice though it would be to skip Morocco. Oh and I would not drive from Madrid to Cordoba. It's a long boring drive.

I would do the following:

Day 2: Lisbon - sight seeing

Day 3: Lisbon - sight seeing then overnight train to Madrid.

Day 4: Madrid - sight seeing

Day 5: Madrid - sight seeing than AVE fast train to Seville

Day 6: Seville - sight seeing

Day 7: Seville - Granada by bus ( 3 hours) or rent a car - sight seeing in Granada

Day 8 Granada - sight seeing

Day 9: Granada - Seville - fly to Marrakech from Seville with Ryan Air ( 50 minutes flight)

Day 10: Marrakech- sight seeing

Day 11: Marrakech - sight seeing

Day 12: Marrakech - fly back to Lisbon with TAP.

Its already hasted as it is, putting in Cordoba will really stretch it. Or else, you could give Morocco and Gibraltar a miss till next time.
