What to see between Lisbon and Toledo, Spain

We are traveling around Spain and Portugal with our two teenage sons and will be driving from Lisbon to Toledo at the end of our trip. Where should we stop along the way to break up the day? Are there any must see things along the way? Thank you!

A map will show you that the most direct route takes you near the small Portuguese city of Évora which has over 2,000 years of history. Not far from there is the nice town of Elvas.

Then across the border is Badajoz in Spain the Mérida and possibly Talavera depending on which way you go after Mérida.

There is plenty of information to find about all these places. Without knowing likes and dislikes, it's too difficult to make absolute suggestions.

Either way, it would be a full 6 hours driving without stopping, so if there is a place that really you want to see other than for a whistle stop, plan to make take more than 1 day for the journey. Mérida is about half way.

Evora is the most obvious choice, you could stay overnight in a beautiful quiet village like Arraiolos if your looking for something a little different. My trip report will give you more information:-
