Moving south from Lisbon towards the Algarve coast, we come across the sparsely populated flatlands of the Alentejo region.
The Alentejo is home to some of the most beautiful villages in Portugal, including Evora, and divine wine, making it an excellent destination for a day trip or overnight. Strolling through sun-soaked olive groves, indulging in local delicacies and losing yourself in small town charm, you’ll feel thousands of miles from the buzzing streets of the capital that sits just north.
