womens safty traveling by car, train in Spain and Portugal

Four U.S.A. women will be traveling from Lourdes, France by train then by car to the Basque country , then to Bilbao, Burgos, Leon, Gijon, and Santiago. We will then go to Portugal by train and car from Porto to Lisbon. Are we safe to travel in Mid July to August 7, 2012, Any suggestions?

Of course! Why wouldn't you be? Driving in Spain is perfectly safe and the routes you're talking about have good motorways on the whole. What is it you're worried about exactly?

I'm a bit puzzled about the question too. Why it would not be safe at that time, or at any other? Of course you have to take care of yourselves as elsewhere, just use your common sense. But there are no "bad areas" to avoid in your route.
