Alentejo Bike Tours

Portugal’s south-central region between Lisbon and Spain has mastered the art of old-meets-new. In the Alentejo, cork oaks are a commercial crop with a 700-year-old history and 15th-century convents have a second life as luxury hotels. Villages with medieval castles reinvented their ramparts with marble quarries, and the UNESCO city of Évora has survived the ages. Between pastoral golden plains and Moorish towns, from prehistoric dolmens to thriving vines of Aragones grapes, the Alentejo strikes the balance between ancient and current.
