- FULL DAY TRIP -

ITINERARY:
 
Pick up at 9 am. wherever you are in Lisbon / Sintra / Cascais.
We leave Lisbon and headed into the Alentejo region, one of the most beautiful lands of Portugal.
 
The old walled city of Évora, deserves a visit with passion, it offers time marks of a city that was born over the centuries: monumental churches, historic squares, whitewashed houses and medieval streets ... Outside the city embraces the nature wheat fields and hills, lakes and streams, lonely landscapes of incomparable beauty ... its hospitable people, the handicrafts, rich gastronomy, traditions, smells and flavors that characterize this beautiful region is awaiting for you!
In the arrival we do a walking by the historic center, we will pass through the old aqueduct "Água de Prata" from the year 1537, by the Giraldo Square, by the Roman Temple and visit the Cathedral of Évora, there we must climb to its rooftop for magnificent views of the fields of Alentejo region.
We continue the visit to the St. Francis Church and its Ossuary Chapel (.. yes, is made of very old human bones, is something weird but unmissable).
 
It's time for a break lunch, we suggest a restaurant of local cuisine, this region has very ancient gastronomic traditions and is one of the best in Portugal.
 
After lunch we leave Évora to Reguengos Monsaraz to visit the "Herdade do Esporão".
Alentejo wines are most balanced, whilst powerful, appealing, lively and with good ageing potential.
A visit to the three wineries will allow you to learn about the production process of Esporão wines, and discover all the care and attention they give them throughout the entire winemaking and ageing process, complemented by tunnels and underground cellars visits.
