CASTLES AND WINE

8 Days

The Alentejo is one of the best regions to cycle in Portugal!

The days are relaxing and from easy to médium level. We do between 35 and 50 kms a day. Roads are mostly undulating, rarely with big climbs. We mix some dirt roads with asphalt, but most of the tour is on asphalt. The dirt roads give the tour a special link to nature.

We start in the small village of Alvito, very famous for its manueline architecture and, from there, cycle to Évora, classified by UNESCO as World Heritage Site and one of the most interesting cities of Portugal.

In Évora, we explore the megalithic monuments or visit some local producers.

We continue to Monsaraz, the lovely white castled village with a panoramic view over the biggest artificial lake of Europe, and cycle through Terena and its impressive sanctuary.

The tour continues to Vila Viçosa, where we visit the famous Ducal Palace, and finishes in Estremoz, the city of the «white gold» (marble).
