What to Expect

The Alentejo is where Portuguese culture is most alive and untouched. On this tour we’ll visit the heart of this rural Portuguese region. Here lies the museum like city of Évora and the medieval village of Monsaraz.

Jump into the heart of Portuguese rural identity and let yourself be dazzled by this ancient UNESCO world heritage city. From the Neolithic (6000 BC) to the Roman empire, through the Arabic domination and on to the final settling of the Christians, Monsaraz is a national history museum, home to some of the greatest monuments in Portugal.

Surrounded by the vast rural plains of the Alentejo, there isn’t a better place to discover the Portuguese countryside and gastronomy including: olive oil, wine and cork tree forests.
