ÉVORA & ALENTEJO FAMILY TOUR

Easy Évora & Alentejo Historical Tour is an incredible 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 and relax in the swimming pool, ride horses, walk around the typical villages, “invade” Palaces and castles, visit aquarium and pre-historic sites, just gettng the most out 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 comes 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 and visit an old train station you will arrive at Arraiolos, an old Portuguese town, with castles and typical houses. Famous for its embroidered wool rugs and carpets made since the Middle Ages, Arraiolos 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, it is all right around the corner, waiting for your visit. You will stay here 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 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 Man in the plains of Alentejo since old times. This is a very important area for the scholars of this age of Mankind. After you will return to the old historic center! Riding in the countryside of Évora through 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 can be the chance of going for some more caches. Returning to Évora it is time to do the last visits since the next day will be a departure to another typical village.
