Brief

Alentejo Routes hatches from the awareness of the potential of the region and the willingness to share it. Social, Cultural, Landscape and Artistic potential. Évora is the center of our activity, its start and finish. It is through Évora that visitors receive the feeling of Alentejo and where they find its most consolidated cultural achievements. In order to provide context to this experience, two routes that lead tourists to get to know Évora surroundings are suggested. They intent to be a search for origins and characteristics of the city, detailing some of its elements: history, culture, artistic and architectural creations.

Tour Detail

We try to share the wholeness of Alentejo and Évora by the sum of it's parts. We do this by telling a relaxed story, using the visited places as an example. We also try to demystify some prevailing ideas about history.

Did you know that the Knight in shinning armour is a concept that evolved for 600 years and can you tell the differences?

Did you know that to make a rope in the middle ages you have to go through a very time consuming laborious process? So much that you would almost never cut a rope back then? 

We are available for customized itineraries and suggest 2 routes as example. Both detail elements like pottery, buildings, military strategy, power strugles, love legends and feeling the past as a construction of the present and future. 

MONSARAZ ROUTE
Patalim pottery at São Pedro do Corval
Namorados Stone
Monsaraz

ESTREMOZ ROUTE
S. António marble quarry
Castle of Estremoz
Castle of Évoramonte
