Marvelous Portugal

A sight from Alentejo, one of our favorite hidden gems…
Alentejo is the widest region of Portugal. Here the landscape is “gentle” composed by rolling hills covered by cork oak trees, vineyards and wheat fields. The lifestyle is serene in the small villages with white washed houses where the time slowly passes by… The gastronomy is robust and creative with wines to match it, in contrast with the calmness of the local people of the region. √Čvora is a beautiful small town and the most important of the Alentejo region. Still surrounded by the old walls it is a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and will attract you for its medieval appearance, the narrow streets, the historic centre and the kindness of the locals. Amongst several interesting monuments, you shall not miss the Roman Temple from the 1st century, unique of this kind in Portugal. This is also the perfect place for a great gastronomic and wine experience, as this is one of the regions in Portugal with more traditional and quality at this level. You shall not miss the opportunity of having a meal in one of the city’s restaurants.
Alentejo is just one of the amazing places to visit in Marvelous Portugal. Let us craft your perfect itinerary……
