Heading inland, Alentejo is
littered with Roman ruins, crumbling Moorish castles, marble
towns and whitewashed villages. The UNESCO towns of Evora
and Elvas are home to baroque bell towers, temples and
mighty fortresses and there are plenty of smaller
atmospheric towns with winding cobbled streets to explore.
Much of the population make a
living from the huge agricultural estates, and Alentejo
feels a world away from Portugal’s bustling cities. Take
time to enjoy the relaxed way of life, experience its rustic
cuisine and world-class wine, and the chance to explore this
tranquil and beautiful region.
