In this tour, we will visit a deeper Portugal with magnificent vineyards, wheat plains, cork and olive trees, from where the famous Portuguese olive oil comes from. We start by visiting the oldest cromlech in southern Europe, more than 7000 years old: The Almendres Cromlech. It is a megalithic complex of more than 100 stones placed in a circular way and aligned with the solstices and equinoxes.

Next, we visit Evora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, surrounded by 14th century walls. We will visit the Roman Temple and the Sé, a gothic cathedral (the largest in Portugal) that are right in the heart of the city. You will have time to stroll through the streets of Evora and get to know the local crafts before lunch. Try the very rich local cuisine based mainly on pork, olive oil, soups, Alentejo bread and codfish dishes. Delicious!

We continue our journey in the afternoon to the Church of San Francisco and the famous Chapel of Bones, a must see and one of the city’s ex-libris. And nothing better than to end the day with a regional Alentejo olive oils tasting, Portugal’s largest wine and olive producing region, before returning to Lisbon!
