Description

The beauty of this tour starts with the departure from Lisbon to the magnificent landscapes in the Region of Alentejo. It is the ideal tour for those looking for historical trips and wine tourism in Portugal. Read on to find out why.

Start with The Museum City of Évora

Once in Alentejo, we travel to Évora, a city that is a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1986 and part of the Ancient European Towns Network. Évora is a Museum city with ruins dating back to the time of the Roman Empire. The city benefited during the golden age in the XV century, when it became the residence of the Kings of Portugal.

When in Évora, it is impossible to remain indifferent to the imposing Roman Temple of Évora. This temple was classified as a World Heritage site by UNESCO. It is one of the most important and visible symbols of the Roman presence in the city and dates back to the Ist century.

We continue our visit to the Square of Giraldo, which has beautiful military and social stories about Évora to tell.

The Cathedral of Évora and the Church of São Francisco with a visit to the chapel of the bones will be the next emblematic places to visit. Time for lunch at your own cost and to enjoy a great meal, typically from Alentejo, in one of the typical restaurants in the centre of the city.

Experiment With Pottery and Wine Tourism in Portugal

We continue our visit with a walk through the Aqueduct of Water and Silver and the Monastery of Cartuxa, heading to Reguengos de Monsaraz and letting ourselves be fascinated by the plains of Alentejo.

A Pottery is waiting for us in São Pedro do Corval in order for us to get to know the art of handling the clay. Those who have courage can try to work with their hands.

Wine Tourism in Portugal is becoming ever more popular. Our country is an expert in the production of a wide variety of wines, each with its own personality. Alentejo wine is quite special. Some of the producers from this region still use pottery to make wine, as it was customary in the Roman period.

Thus, we end our tour in one of the most emblematic Cellars of Portugal, with a fantastic wine tasting. We assure you that those looking for wine tourism in Portugal will not be disappointed.

Fascinated with the Alentejo region, we will return to Lisbon with drop-off at the hotel.
