Treasures of Iberia's Atlantic Coast
From Nantes to Lisbon, PONANT invites you on Le Jacques-Cartier for a cruise along the French, Spanish and Portuguese Atlantic coastlines.
You will discover San Sebastián, the elegant capital of Gipuzkoa province. With its distinctive shell-shaped bay, opulent-looking buildings and small streets that are ideal for strolling, this city provides a fine glimpse at the charms of the Spanish Basque Country.
You will then chart a course for Bilbao, not far from the La Rioja winemaking region, whose reputation goes before it.
Your journey will continue to Galicia and the city of Vigo, the biggest fishing port in Spain. Not far from here, Santiago de Compostela awaits you. This unmissable pilgrimage destination is home to a number of monuments from the Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque periods, testimony to its illustrious past.
Finally, from the port of Leixões, you will visit Porto. The capital of Portugal's northern region, this "city of granite" is renowned for its wine but also for its remarkable historic centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
