Here you will walk in the footsteps of Romans, kings and queens, and touch upon the impressive stones of a Roman Temple, Gothic Cathedral, famed Chapel of Bones, and Stonehenge-style Neolithic monuments.
For the enjoyable day trips within Alentejo, you will also explore Estremoz, and walk the marble-lined streets which will lead to the palace, where you can have tea on the terrace, or climb the tower to look our over the star-shaped rampart walls of the town.
In medieval Monsaraz, you will step through a time-portal, and experience a charming hilltop castle village, once fortified by legendary Templar Knights. Views from Monsaraz are considered the most beautiful in Alentejo, and a perfect place to sip wine, and soak in the colorful expanse of the rolling hills, decorated by ancient Olive Trees, Cork Oak Trees and vineyards.
