Alentejo: Point of Interest Map

Map of the Alentejo
Major Cities

For centuries Evora has served as one of the country`s main agricultural centers and is well-known for its rich history. The capital city`s past can be seen up-close in the UNESCO World Heritage-certified historic center.

Situated on a hill high above the Alentejo`s Golden Plains, Beja boasts a history that stretches back to the time of the Celts & Romans.

A must-see city for tourists who love European history, this hospitable city is also known for its beautiful pink marble.
Areas of the Alentejo

A treat for travelers seeking a rustic getaway in an area known for its castles and fortresses, Roman and Moorish remnants, and the pre-historic Anta da Aldeia da Mata megalith. The region`s numerous valleys and the Sao Mamede mountains are beloved by adventure seekers.

Known for vast open plains, scenic beauty, and the wine and olive oil produced here is coveted worldwide. The area thrives but at a much slower pace than the remainder of the country. It is here where travelers can let their hair down and take a breather.

The Ribatejo is the opposite side of the Tagus river; it is the only traditional province of Portugal not to be situated either on the coast or along the border with Spain. Its charming cities are full of history and gastronomy. It is impossible to leave not charmed!
WHY THE ALENTEJO?

Plains extend as far as the eye can see; stretching from the mighty Tejo (Tagus) River towards the Algarve and framed in the east by the Sao Mamede mountains on the Spanish border. This is the Alentejo - dotted with cork oaks, olive trees, and vineyards. Here and there a town pops up and houses standing proudly on grassy knolls and roads winding beyond castles and convents recall battles with the Spanish for lands. Arab and Roman influences are still felt in the sprawling gardens, temples, and ruins of splendid villas. In the Alentejo, cities like Elvas and Evora demonstrate the tenacity of the people; other notable cities include Marvao, Portalegre and Beja, the former Jewish quarters in Castelo de Vide.
