The Best of Alentejo in a 10 day Trip

The Alentejo is set in the south of Portugal, between the Tejo River and the Algarve. To the east it borders Spain and to the west it is washed by the Atlantic Ocean. It is an extensive region, essentially rural and lightly populated, over all representing about a third of Portugal.

The Montado Cork Forest is a natural core of the Alentejo. A space where nature and humans coexisted in a rare ecosystem.

Here, the cork oaks give us cork, a truly unique totally natural material. The holm oaks feed the animals, preserving native breeds and ancestral grazing techniques. And the long shade of the trees invites you to hike and explore.

The Alentejo is a green space that seems endless. Its crisp blue sky crowns clean air that fills your lungs.

Come and explore the Alentejo and discover the charms of this unique region. Cultural routes that take you to discover secrets, legends and stories of unique people. The Routes take you to explore the traces of our ancestors – Route of Megalithism, to discover the era of conquests and reconquests – Route of Forts & Fortifications, to witness the presence of Alentejo baroque architecture and art – Route of the Baroque, and finally, discovering a unique culture in Portugal – Avieira Culture Route.  Plus there are wine routes as well as a marble route and an olive oil route.
