Hi Theresa,
Mary's answers are spot-on. Also, you may find helpful. Before visiting Portugal last spring, I used this website to research buses from Évora to Lagos .
They have a list of long distance buses from Lagos, Albufeira and Faro to SevilleLisbon and Porto to Madrid and Porto to the north west Spain.
My family and I traveled with Rede Expressos buses within Portugal. It is easy to get tickets online. They do offer services to Seville from Faro, Lagos and Albufeira. The tickets are available for purchase one month before the date of the trip. The buses were comfortable, on-time and had Wi-Fi too.

Portugal is quite a big country and you haven't said where you'll be based, which does make a difference.

There are mountains between Portugal and Spain, which causes problems with train journeys. 

For that reason, and given your time constraints, I suggest you investigate the excellent long-distance buses:

Whilst it is possible to take the bus from Lisbon to Madrid it's a  pretty long journey. So I'd suggest you get to Faro (an interesting town in its own right) and then take the bus to Seville, a journey of only 1.5 hours.

But your options really depend on where you will be based in Portugal. If you're based in Porto, for example, you might think about taking the bus to Santiago de Compostela
