Morocco is just on the other side of the river, isn’t it?
No, it’s not just there. It’s a bit further down. About 680 km further. And there’s a lot still to see before you reach Morocco. The Serra da Arrábida, for example, is a beautiful range of halls a 40-minute drive south of Lisbon. Then there’s the whole Alentejo to explore and, right at the bottom, the Algarve. But even from there you can’t actually see Morocco.
