Nestled in the heart of Portugal, Alentejo is a region that beckons travelers seeking an authentic and immersive experience. Prepare to be enchanted as you embark on a journey through undulating plains, olive groves, vineyards, and charming historic towns. Alentejo's unhurried pace allows you to savor every moment, immersing yourself in the rich tapestry of its heritage and warm hospitality.

First, we invite you to explore the captivating history of Évora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with its well-preserved Roman temple and Gothic cathedral. Wander through narrow cobblestone streets, discovering hidden treasures around every corner. Breathe in the aroma of delicious local cuisine, featuring hearty dishes like migas and tender Alentejo pork. Indulge in the world-renowned Alentejo wines, produced in vineyards that stretch as far as the eye can see. Sip a glass of rich red or crisp white, and let the flavors transport you to the heart of the land. Visit traditional wineries, meet passionate winemakers, and uncover the secrets behind each bottle.

Beyond the towns, the region reveals its natural wonders. Explore the vast Alqueva Lake, where tranquility reigns and stargazing takes on a whole new meaning. Lose yourself in the vastness of the Serra de São Mamede Natural Park, a haven for hikers and nature enthusiasts, offering breathtaking vistas and diverse flora and fauna.
