A full day private tour among history, heritage and culture, arts and crafts and the incredible wines of the Alentejo region
After leaving from Évora, first stop will be São Pedro do Corval, a small and typical village, considered the largest potter's center in Portugal, with more than two dozen potteries in operation, to see and admire live the clay to be shaped by the experienced hands of a master potter.
With Monsaraz in sight, it's time to admire the "Xerez" cromlech, a prehistoric monument and one of the oldest vestiges of human presence in this area, erected between the beginning of the 4th and middle of 3rd Millennium BC, related to sacred rituals. Time to experience the romantic atmosphere of Monsaraz, walking through its narrow streets of slate: a walled and medieval village, where the castle still stands proud, guarding the Alentejo landscape, from where we now admire the immensity of the largest lake in Europe - the "Alqueva" lake.
After lunch, we will visit one of the best wineries in the region: some recovered ancient Roman techniques to produce wines in clay amphorae. Of course we will enjoy a great wine tasting.
