History and food are what Évora has in abundance. Plus wonderful wine – and shops selling cork products. That’s why this tour becomes a MUST!
Our day starts with an unique experience: going through the marvelous colored fields of Alentejo ,you’ll be thrilled to know you can hear the sound of silence. Literally it means the”land beyond the Tagus”, it is a warm, dry, mostly gentle region north of the Algarve that has been ignored by all but a few.
Évora is the Alentejo’s capital, a Unesco world heritage site, that will make you travel back in time.Diana’s temple,the Cathedral and The Bones Chapel in the church of S.Francisco are visits planned for you.
The distinct characteristics of the soils according to area (granite, limestone, Mediterranean or schist), the long hours of exposure to the sun and a group of selected grape varieties enable high quality production, combined with the ability to preserve the tradition of flavor, while innovating in the art of winemaking. That’s our second discovery: wine tasting. We will be stopping at a farm which produces wines of great reputation in order to visit their caves and learn about wine production.
Tuesdays to Sundays.
