Time really goes fast when you are having fun! It is time to say goodbye, but we believe the moments and the memories you built have been all worth it. Our Guide will pick you up and drive you to airport.

A gorgeous day is awaiting you! You will ride towards Spain by a landscape of cork trees, olive groves and flocks of sheep! Admire the beautiful Guadiana river that separates Portugal from Spain and make a stop to visit Juromenha, a picturesque village overlooking Spain. On this day you must face some uphills while returning to Vila Viçosa, but your efforts will be reward with a delicious meal at night.

THE ITINERARY

After your welcoming, we drive for two hours until Estremoz. An old town where you might feel like a Queen or King spending the night at the Castle. This is an historical building converted into an hotel from where you can admire a superb view over Estremoz and the vast Alentejo plain.

ÉVORA Loop

Évora is classified in UNESCO’s International Heritage and has 2000 years of history, but after a late breakfast it's time to explore the surroundings. Soon you will arrive in Arraiolos noted for its colorful, hand-stitched woolen tapestries. There must be one fitting of your living room back home! This is the last day riding so you have the opportunity to celebrate with portuguese wine. Saúde!

Arriving to the hotel-museum you will find an impressive collection of tiles, remarkable ceramic work centuries old and Alentejo's culture style. This building was a convent and you might feel fascinated knowing that Kings have slept there since 1500. To finish the day challenge your taste and learn a bit more about Portuguese wine at Wine museum in center. Don’t miss it!

After a delicious breakfast you will cycle through villages and historical landscapes. Stages of battles, conquers, old communities and great people. Towards Vila Viçosa, the capital of marble in Portugal, you can visit the Ducal Palace, built in the 16th and 17th centuries on the remains of Roman and Moorish buildings. You will have plenty of free time today, we suggest you to walk around and enjoy the charm of the streets at the center.
