Destinations Alentejo

Interior & Unique Alentejo

The Alentejo is a mix of emotions, colours and shapes. Golden plains to the south, green valleys to the north, castles, temples, flora and fauna of great distinction. So the interior Alentejo is full of tradition and authenticity. Discover the Alentejo, but take your time.

The Destination

To the south, you have the golden hues, where the plains and valleys are an invitation to hiking. To the north, the slopes and woods on the mountains fill activities with romance. Day-to-day life is at a calm rhythm that invites you to go back in time and enjoy it in a special way.

The historical legacy is unparalleled. There are towns, such as Marvão or Monsarraz, that have long stood inside the walls of castles; there are Roman temples that stand in the town squares, like in Évora; there are Roman bridges that unite towns. There are dozens of centuries to be unveiled!

Reasons To Love It
  • Small white villages that pop up along the valleys and plains
  • The authenticity of its people
  • The medieval villages and castles that transport you to other times

But history is not just in the monuments. The food is still carefully preserved in the local restaurants so the best thing to do is ask for the house special. You certainly won’t regret it. Accompany it with traditional Alentejo bread, baked in a wood oven, and a glass of a distinguished and seasoned Alentejo wine, from the 220 ha of vineyards in this demarcated region.

The white houses are another of the classics of the region, whose small clusters give rise to the most peaceful and tranquil villages in Portugal.
