  • History: With a rich history of agriculture, the Alentejo has attracted various peoples throughout the ages.
  • Monuments: There is no shortage of monuments to explore, some of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Évora and Monsaraz: Prehistory, Roman Occupation, and Medieval Era

One of the most enticing aspects of this journey is the profound historical diversity that you can experience here.

Roman Occupation: A stroll through Évora will inevitably lead us to the Roman Temple, a reminder of the city’s Roman name.

Medieval Era: As we approach Monsaraz, we encounter this walled village atop a significant elevation, transporting us back to the medieval period during its construction.
