In the south, the Alentejo is characterised by immense plains and a vast area of Atlantic coast, with little human presence. To the north, where it meets the centre of Portugal, some of its beautiful mountains reveal themselves. Throughout these regions, it is possible to find many villages, towns and cities with a unique historical and patrimonial wealth.
In the north of Alentejo, cities like Castelo de Vide and Portalegre, Ponte de Sor, Montargil or Sousel stand out. Enjoy the remarkable architecture and gastronomy, especially the traditional blood sausages.
Towards the south, take the thematic routes, such as the "Marble Route" or the "Alentejo Wine Route". On these trips you will discover unique places like Elvas, Estremoz, Borba, Vila Viçosa and Alandroal. Craft lovers have a mandatory stop in Arraiolos, to learn about the local tapestry. Continuing the "descend", it is inevitable to stop in the historic city of Évora. From there, discover Redondo, Amareleja, Moura, Reguengos de Monsaraz, Vidigueira, Viana do Alentejo, Alvito, Cuba and Beja, with their amazing heritage.
In the coastal area, Sines, Porto Covo, Odemira, Zambujeira do Mar or Milfontes are worth a visit, but the main goal is to enjoy the immense beauty and natural heritage of the Natural Park of the Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina, which already extends through the Algarve.
On these trips, do not miss the opportunity to enjoy the groups of "Cante Alentejano", an Immaterial Heritage of Humanity.
