Leaving Lisbon early in the morning you will cross the rolling plains of this almost unexplored region where the olive and cork oak trees are abundant and essential to the region's economy and lifestyle.
The town of Évora, the walled World Heritage Site is an astonishingly well-preserved piece of history that you will be able to discover by walking inside its walls. Join your guide on a visit the Saint Francis church and the sinister Chapel of the Bones proving that life for some might have been just one more step towards the desired eternity.
Walking up the old narrow streets you'll reach the central Giraldo square where you will begin to walk up to the top of Évora reaching the 13th century Cathedral and the surprisingly well preserved Roman temple. But in one of the hidden corners of Évora lies the core of all its knowledge and perseverance: the 16th century University where still today hundreds of students search for the much-wanted sapience.
After a reinvigorating lunch break in one of the much celebrated restaurants of the Alentejo region, it will be time to head to Vila Viçosa. Vila Viçosa is, where the noble Bragana Family decided to erect their palace and where everything is made of marble, from the houses to the streets. In this land of prosperity the highlight is the imposing Ducal Palace of Braganth century that we will visit with amazing collection of furniture, porcelain and paintings bringing back the memoirs of the royal family that ruled Portugal until 1910.
