Lisbon, Portugal, Evora, Portugal, Estremoz, Portugal
1 - 6
Our tour to Évora goes through Golden plains that disappear out of sight combine with the sun and the heat to impose their own slow, steady rhythm. This is the Alentejo.
The open, ample landscape is peppered with cork-oaks or olive trees that have withstood the ravages of time. Occasionally sturdy fortress walls rise up from hills, as at Marvão or Monsaraz, or you’ll see just a simple dolmen reminding you of the magic of the place. Atop small hills stand white one-storey farmsteads, while the castles are reminders of the battles and conquests that once took place here. The patios and gardens bear witness to the influence of the Arabs, who helped to shape the people and the nature.
In the Alentejo, the brute force of the land dictates the march of time. Perhaps this is why the region’s culture has its own particular character. All you need to do is visit Évora and discover its Roman roots and the delightful charm of its heritage to understand why the city has been classified as a world heritage site.
Once arrived in Évora, we will start a walking tour to visit the roman Diana Temple, Cathedral, St. Franscis church with the famous Bone´s chapel.
A world of unexpected contrasts awaits you in the unique city of Evora. It has a history more than two thousand years old. You’ll see labyrinthine streets, squares flooded with light, Renaissance fountains, Moorish courtyards and Gothic doorways and turrets.
Free time for shopping and lunch.
After lunch we will drive to Estremoz, the capital of marble in Portugal. Here you can see a marble quarry and get explained how it is explored.
At the end of the day we will drive back to Lisbon.
