This Full Day tour gives you the opportunity to visit one of the most interesting regions of Portugal: the Alentejo.
Leaving Lisbon behind you will soon start to cross the rolling plains of the Alentejo finding here and there an olive or cork oak tree that so much contribute to the economy and lifestyle of this region.
The town of Evora, the walled World Heritage Site is an astonishingly well preserved piece of history that you will be able to discover by walking inside its walls. With your guide you will visit the Saint Francis Church and the sinister Chapel of the Bones proving that life for some might have been just one more step towards the desired eternity.
Walking up the old narrow streets you'll reach the central Giraldo square where you will begin to walk up to the top of Evora reaching the 13th century Cathedral and the surprisingly well preserved Roman Temple. But in one of the hidden corners of Evora lies the core of all its knowledge and perseverance: the 16th century University where still today hundreds of students search for the much wanted sapience.
After a reinvigorating lunch break in one of the much celebrated restaurants in Evora, that prepare with heart and soul the regional olive oil, bread and garlic recipes, it will be time to continue to Reguengos de Monsaraz and to the Herdade do Esporao. There is no better example of a wine making Estate than this. The hot temperatures force the grapes to mature according to the pace of nature in a great combination of the fruit of the grapes and the oaky flavors of the wooden casks. Somehow the Esporao winemakers have managed to combine these two characteristics in such a way that it soon became one of the best Wine Estates of Portugal.
