Evora Wine Tour
Highlights / General details
We embark on a one-day voyage through the city of Évora (UNESCO World Heritage), a mosaic of culture, history and traditions. Leaving Lisbon behind, we cross the bridge over the Tagus before, within a few kilometres, a pleasant landscape takes shape, dotted with cork oaks, olive groves and vineyards. In the distance, we pass walls before their whiteness tells us we have arrived in Évora. Here, wander the narrow streets and take the time to savor masterpieces of past eras and the key monuments of Évora: the Roman Temple, the Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral, the Church of São Francisco and its Chapel of Bones as well as the University. There is also the chance to explore the deep variety of handicrafts produced across the Alentejo including the renowned pieces in cork, ceramics and copper. Furthermore, take the opportunity to engage and experience the depth and breadth in the ingredients for some of the most defining dishes in the Portuguese gastronomic range. Free time to lunch. Following lunch, in the afternoon, we set off in direction of the peaceful city of Reguengos de Monsaraz. Here we visit one of the most historical and important wine cellars in the country, named "Herdade do Esporão", and also where we get to taste the traditional Setúbal moscatel. At the end of this marvellous day, we make our return to Lisbon.
