PRIVATE ALENTEJO TOURS
Explore Alentejo with one of our Private Tours…
Alentejo is one of the most beautiful regions in Portugal. In fact, culture and tradition go, hand in hand, along with the vastness of the plains with large cork trees, a wide blue sky and its friendly people.
Its history dates from the Phoenician civilization, for over 3000 years. Also, the Celts and, specially, the Roman civilization left an important legacy through their writings, cities, mosaics and monuments, as well as, in everyday tasks.
The Arabs built numerous castles and walls to protect the cities and influenced, of course, the Portuguese language. In fact, the Moors ruled Evora from the 8th to the 12th century.
Évora is a World Heritage Site from UNESCO, with its historical and cultural wealth, an open-air museum since 1986. It was once a Roman town, important because of its wheat and silver wealth, as well as its location on a trade route to Rome. The city keeps practically unaltered streets and buildings throughout the centuries. Don’t miss the chapel of bones, the Diana roman temple and its the medieval walls… Especially, feel free to walk and get lost in the historic city center…
The region enjoys a warm and dry climate, with an excellent “terroir” for the production of some of the best Portuguese wines and, consequently, in the international recognition of Alentejo wines.
White, rosé or red, they are full of strong aromatic exuberance, round and smooth, with a unique ability to be drunk while young, although knowing how to age with distinction.
