EASY ÉVORA & ALENTEJO HISTORICAL TOUR

Easy Évora & Alentejo Historical Tour is a relaxing cycling program through the beautiful golden rolling hills of Alentejo Region, where you can admire the natural beauty of the plains covered with cork oak trees, offering stunning views along the way. You will discover historical sites, from different ages (from pre-history to the renascence), small churches and temples and some abandoned train stations, which remind us of the time when these plains cultivated wheat and cereals! Évora is the highlight of the tour and there you will have time to admire, visit, smell and taste the delights of the city. These will be days where you can enjoy the delights of the region!

On day one you will start biking from the center of this typical village by narrow streets getting to an old train station. Do not forget to visit it and appreciate the slow and quiet life of the countryside of Portugal. Following the train tracks to the sweet water aquarium, you will have the opportunity to discover fantastic sceneries, rivers and lakes! Then make your way to Pavia, the landscape will not disappoint you and the town keeps a traditional architecture and athmosphere.

A little more of our culture is waiting for you today! After cycling through some local farms, you will arrive in Arraiolos, an old Portuguese town, with castles and typical houses, famous for its embroidered wool rugs and carpets made since the Middle Ages. It has some gastronomical delights that will make you very happy. After a nice meal recharge your batteries at a beautiful historical building, an old convent, where you will spend the night.

The journey today will take you calmly to Évora, a Unesco World Heritage Site! You will be amazed with the beauty and history of this old town. The outer walls, the Roman Temple, the Cathedral, are all right around the corner, waiting for your visit. You will stay for the next three nights, so take your time and each day explore a bit of this heritage and capital of the region.

This day is the most challenging but also the most spectacular one, since the goal is to visit the pre-historic monuments. It will be possible to visit several historical sites with traces of the presence of Humans in the plains of Alentejo since old times. This is a very important area for the scholars of this age of Humanity. Afterwards you will return to the old historic center! Riding in the countryside of Évora trough trails and quiet roads, it is all about enjoying the view. You can also visit a cork-hotel before the end of the day. This sounds fun!

This day is reserved to see how in the fifteen hundreds the renascence people transported water to the cities. This spectacular ancient aqueduct has some visible structures and the goal for the day is to do a circular ride and follow this water channel system. Nice little trails alongside the aqueduct will be the joy of everyone. This is a good chance to go for some more caches. Returning to Évora it is time to do the last visits since the next day will be your departure.
