You will be charmed by the monuments, houses and squares, by the contagious diversity of colors in the landscape, where lifestyles quietly slow down… this is the countryside.

Day 1 Welcome to Alentejo –  Evora : Open air museum
In and around Évora the Roman times come back to life. Ride through a well-preserved city center, full of extraordinary monuments (UNESCO world heritage) and lined with romantic cobble-stoned lanes.

Day 2 Travel Back to the Megalith Times
Quiet back roads will take you to some of the most important Megalithic Monuments in the Iberia. (52km/32m or 25km/15m)

Day 3 Ride along a Secluded Rails to Trails
As you ride along the Rails to Trails and across the vast plains you will understand the essence of the Alentejo Region. The slow pace living and the memories of a long gone lifestyle will become evident as you enjoy quietness of the valleys. (25km/15m)

Day 4 Fairwell
One last chance to admire the Evora.

It was an especially good introduction to the pleasures of the Alentejo and mountain biking for those who had not experienced one or both before.
