We live in the US and will be traveling to Lisbon for 5 days for a corporate event in May at the Penha Longa Hotel. We have never been to Europe before and would like to add a few days before or after our stay in Lisbon and go somewhere that makes sense without alot of travel hassle. We both prefer relaxing by the beach/pool versus viewing old architecture. I am thinking Barcelona might be good, or somewhere else in Spain, or just explore other regions of Portugal. I look forward to your input. Thanks!
