You will discover part of the most beautiful and unspoilt landscape of the Alentejo. In spring the plains come to life in a colorful mosaic of wildflowers; by harvest time, the air is filled with the mingled perfumes of grapes and wine.

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. (Optional Megalithic Loop: 42kms/26m)

Day 2 Redondo Wine District and Alqueva Lake
Ridding past quaint whitewashed village and vineyards you will arrive to the plains surrounding the hilltop fortified village of Monsaraz. Once on the Medieval Castle you will be rewarded by astonishing views over the Lake. (75km/47m or 82km/51m)

Day 3 Discover small villages and hand-made red clay pottery
These scenic back roads take you through endless rolling hills alternating grain, vineyards, olive, cork and holm oak groves. Some Portuguese quality country products are produced here. You will sight Évora from afar with its unique Cathedral Towers! (66km/41m)

Day 4 Fairwell
One last chance to admire Evora before leaving the quietness of the Alentejo

I could not have have imagined a better trip! Riding on medieval cobblestone roads through fortified villages, single tracks, beautiful groves and complete with Roman ruins – what more could I ask for?! Thanks for creating one of the best times of my life.
