Hotels in Alentejo

    Alentejo Details

    This province extends as far as the southeast of the Tagus River. You can wander through olive groves, over lush green meadows and by small clumps of cork-oak. You may try to explore, in a weekend, Alentejo. It is best, however, to give yourself more time. Alentejo can show you the birthplace of Vasco da Gama, the explorer in Sine or the Aqueducto de Amoreira in Elvas. This is Europe’s largest aqueduct with 843 arches. The only major town in Alentejo is Beja with its beautiful garden at the Castelo de Baja. Évora is both Alentejo’s largest city and capital. Here you can find Roman ruins to explore. The city also hosts a university and boasts the intriguing Chapel of Bones – a chapel made out of around 5000 human bones by three Franciscan monks.
