Trip Summary

  • Evora

    Evora is the main city in the Alentejo region of Portugal. Boasting a rich history which spans 5,000 years, Evora is known for its agricultural importance as well, as olive groves and wineries thrive just outside the city center. Evora`s long and storied history was recognized by UNESCO in 1986, when the organization named the entire historic center of Evora a World Heritage Site. Evora is also a key academic city in Portugal: It is home to one of the county's most famous universities. Explore the University of Evora, Cathedral of Evora, Roman Temple, Roman Baths, Praca do Giraldo, Royal Palace, Igreja de Santo Antao, Igreja da Misericordia, Chapel of Bones, and so much more!

  • Alentejo North East

    The cities, towns and villages that comprise the Alentejo`s North East region are a treat for travelers seeking a rustic getaway in an area known for its decadent olive oil and wine, clay dolls and Estremoz marble, Elvas plums and the hearty soup acorda. Quiet yet exciting, the North East offers dozens of must-see attractions for every type of traveler. Before the Portuguese crown seized control of the North East, Romans and Moors ruled the land, and their influence can be seen at monuments such as the Roman Villa of Ammaia, the Roman Villa of Torre de Palma, and the Moorish-inspired Marvao Castle. Pre-history buffs will be excited to see the Anta da Aldeia da Mata megalith in person (as it is perhaps Portugal`s most famous). Those in love with nature will appreciate the region`s numerous valleys, great for biking, as well as the hiking trails of the Sao Mamede mountains. Explore Avis Castle, Sinagoga de Castelo de Vide, Anta da Aldeia da Mata, Forte de Santa Luzia, Estremoz Castle, Evoramonte Castle, City Walls of Marvao, Roman bridge over the Ribeira Grande, Portalegre Cathedral, Praca de Touros de Sousel, Mosteiro de Santo Agostinho, Rossio Marques de Pombal, and so much more!
