Discover the bucolic landscapes of olive trees, cork oak and vineyards on our way towards Évora. This medieval and walled town classified a World Heritage Site by UNESCO is an enchanting place to delve into the past.
Inside the 14th-century walls, Évora’s narrow, winding lanes lead to striking architectural works, which you will visit: an elaborate medieval cathedral and cloisters; the cinematic columns of the Templo Romano (near the intriguing Roman baths); and a picturesque town square.
Proceed to the market to appreciate local handicraft with cork, ceramic and copper, as well as the richness of natural products used to prepare one of the most appreciated Gastronomies in Portugal.
In the afternoon, there will be free time to walk around these medieval streets.

Visit Sagres, a charming fishing port, where you will visit the fortress formerly known as the mythical “navigation school” back from the maritime discoveries.
Continue along the cliffs to Cape St. Vincent, the most southwesterly point of mainland Europe, where the hard waves of the Atlantic Ocean strike the massive precipices.
