Alentejo

1 anmeldelse

Stretching from the Spanish border to the Atlantic coast and touching on the Algarve to the south, the scenic Alentejo uplands are fast becoming one of Portugal’s premier wine-producing areas. At the heart of the Alentejo – which roughly translates as ‘beyond the Tagus’ – lies Évora, the ancient capital of the region.

UNESCO World Heritage-listed Évora is an enticing city with its long history laid bare for all visitors to see. Nine miles (14.5 km) west is the Cromeleque dos Almendres, a series of prehistoric standing stones, while in the city center there are 2,000 year-old ruins of a Roman temple, the macabre Capela dos Ossos ossuary, and a splendid Gothic cathedral to explore around the photogenic Praça do Giraldo. On summer evenings, tables are crowded into the square and side-street bars and boutiques are open until the wee hours.
