CASTLES AND WINE

The Alentejo is one of the best regions to cycle in Portugal!The days are relaxing and from easy to m�dium 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 �vora, classified by UNESCO as World Heritage Site and one of the most interesting cities of Portugal. In �vora, 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 Vi�osa, where we visit the famous Ducal Palace, and finishes in Estremoz, the city of the �white gold� (marble).
