I can't answer your other questions (I drove around Spain and Portugal) - I just wanted to say make sure you go to the Mezquita in Cordoba. Even though a cathedral was built in the middle of it - it's still an awe-inspiring structure! The Alhambra in Granada is also gorgeous - I was there during one of my rain days (tho it only rained a few hours) and it was still beautiful.

I went the end of September, beginning of October - it rained only 2 days out of 22.

Personally, I don't think I'd try for Portugal and Spain in a week - that may be a little rushed.
