Drive to Évora, visit Museum town, taste Alentejo wines


We shall cross the 25th April bridge moving southeast for about 1h45 minutes. We will be visiting one of the capitals of province Alentejo, once located on one of the main roads of roman Lusitania province. This tour is and encounter with Évora glorious past, Portugal's second capital for some of the Avis dynasty kings. Evora is a classified UNESCO site for the last 25 years. Everywhere there are remains of the different civilizations that settled down here; Romans, Visigoths, Moors, Christians. Walk through its squares and streets with lime washed houses. EXcellent local cuisine. Land of cork trees and olive oil, agriculture is still a major activity for locals.
You will love to walk through the streets where locals live within History.
As an option I may incorporate an exclusive visit with Alentejo winetasting to a private estate - Herdade - just outside Évora.
