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) 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. Once in Arraiolos, well known for its hand-made tapestries, mingle with the locals at the main square and admire it’s Celtic round shaped castle. (52km/32m or 25km/15m)

Day 3 Ride along Beautiful Olive Groves
Biking across fertile valleys and small villages, you can still see women embroidering tapestries in front of their houses. Enter Estremoz through a drawbridge and ride the Old Town slate paved streets up to the Castle and its Keep Tower. (66km/40m)

Day 4 Vila Viçosa – The White Gold Capital
Pedal on the small roads that connect the Marble Quarries and be impressed by these open air mining sites. In Vila Viçosa, everything seems to be made of marble, from the pavement and benches on the streets to its Ducal Palace. (23km/14m)

Day 5 Crossing Ancient Fortresses & Borders
You will ride through “forgotten” villages, castles and a very unusual fortress-like Chapel. Wander the whitewashed hilltop village of Monsaraz, with its charming cobblestoned streets, Keep Tower and great views over the plains and the Alqueva Lake. (50km/31m or 76km/47m)

Day 6 Vineyards & Wine
In this remote area wonderful whitewashed villages are hidden in rolling hills. Scenic back roads take you through endless vineyards and olive groves, where renowned Portuguese wines are produced. (66km/41m)

Day 7 Fairwell
One last chance to admire Evora before leaving the quietness of the Alentejo

We did a self-guided bicycle ride through the Alentejo, a picturesque region of vineyards, olive trees, and whitewashed hilltop villages. Working with Bikeiberia was a pleasure from booking to finish.
