The Alentejo Interior Region

THE CALM LIFE OF ALENTEJO

Alentejo Interior Tours and Trips

The Alentejo Interior is a place full of history, traditions, gastronomy and world-class wines. It has beautiful landscapes and the best climate in Europe. ​

It is a place where time has its own rhythm transmitting a great sense of tranquillity. Here you can contemplate fields of lilac and yellow colour, attend unique birds and find landscapes that you will never forget, either in the heart of the plains, on a cliff or in a forest of cork oaks. More to the interior of the country is Arraiolos, home of the Arraiolos carpets, the result of the work and art of various generations, which are still being produced today. On top of its hill is Arraiolos’ peculiar circular castle. Inside the castle you can find the historic Igreja do Salvador. Towards the south is the historic town of Monsaraz. The history of Monsaraz goes back to prehistoric times, having been occupied by romans, visigoths, arabs and jews. The unmatched beauty of the city is enough to justify a visit.

Small in size but large in beauty, Vila Viçosa – known as the Princess of the Alentejo –  is one of those places that must not be missed.  The abundance of natural resources like stone has also given this city the title of “Capital of Marble”, and marble is in fact, the motor of the region’s economy, as Vila Viçosa exports its natural resource to various countries around the world. The flat lands are ideal for hiking or biking tours, and you can combine these tours while staying at historic hotels, like ancient convents, castles or museum hotels, surrounded by beautiful gardens and important monuments that will make your journey even more memorable.
