A beautiful day riding rolling hills of gold and green, through cork trees, pristine vineyards and pastoral countryside dotted by abandoned castles. And after all these days rolling hills through past and present, old world heritage, modern local cultures, landscapes and wineries. Today you will arrive at the most beautiful historical city of the country and gather all this experiences in just one place. Can you imagine? Make your way there and don’t stop exploring!

Évora is classified in UNESCO’s International Heritage and has 2000 years of history, but after a late breakfast it is time to explore the surroundings. Soon you will arrive in Arraiolos noted for its colorful, hand-stitched woolen tapestries. There must be one fitting in your living room back home! This is the last day riding so you have the opportunity to celebrate with portuguese wine. Saúde!

On the first day you will start cycling by pastoral fields, where the only sounds are the jangling bells of flocking sheep bleating. The landscape is rural, passing some villages with the typical Alentejo whitewashed houses outlined in blue and ochre trim. The wine culture will enter your path on this very first day, as you will visit a winery and taste red and white wine! But not too much because you still have some kilometers to do, until your resting place.

It is time to leave Vila Viçosa and ride towards south passing the village of Alandroal. On the way you will feel delight with oleander flowers, shrubs and trees, whose wood is used by local artisans. Arriving in Monsaraz notice that ancient cultures and medieval architecture is close by. This village was occupied since the prehistoric era and megalithic monuments are a physical evidence of that. We suggest you to visit Menhir of Outeiro right before check in the new hotel.

 

 

After a peaceful night rest, get up on your bike and prepare for a golden landscape until Redondo. Arriving at the hotel-museum you will find an impressive collection of tiles, remarkable ceramic work during centuries and Alentejo culture style. This building was a convent and you might feel fascinated knowing that Kings where sleeping here since 1500. To finish the day challenge your taste and learn a bit more about Portuguese wine at a Wine museum in the center. Don’t miss it!
