Singular wineries dot the fertile plains of the Alentejo, forming a scenic wine route that curves through historic villages, beyond breathtaking landscapes. Varieties of both red and white grapes grow from the gnarled branches of acclaimed vineyards.
Stripes of lilac, buttercup, and cornflower blue encircle the windows of simple whitewashed houses. Glazed urns, embellished with rings of blue daisies and olive leaves flank oak doors. Above terracotta rooftops, princely bell towers of Baroque design, rise and chime the hour with their long resounding tones. The glorious nuances of Portuguese tradition merge with the rich histories of kings and explorers in this enchanting Alentejo city. A stunning 18th century atmosphere is preserved within ancient praças where troubadours roam, singing the evocative love songs of an enduring past.
