Tour Description: Self-guided

(View Guided )

On this tour, you'll experience a true combination of cycling and discovery, and you can be sure to leave Portugal with a much richer knowledge of our region!

Along your cycling days you will visit castles, churches, artisans, wine producers and typical family owned cafes. The landscape changes from olive groves to vineyards and cork oaks, from granite to schist and to marble.

You start in the small village of Alvito, very famous for its manueline architecture, and from there cycle to Evora, an impressive city classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. In Evora you’ll explore megalithic monuments and then continue to Monsaraz, the lovely white castled village with a panoramic view over the biggest artificial lake of Europe, and cycle through Terena and its impressive sanctuary.

The tour then goes to Vila Vicosa, where you can visit the famous Ducal Palace, and finishes in Estremoz, the city of the white gold (marble).
