Summary

Savour the best of Alentejo with a delicious glass of wine and a chance to explore the gorgeous towns of Campo Maior and Elvas.

Depart to Adega Mayor, one of the most popular wineries in Alentejo, to sample a selection of exquisite wines while marvelling at the vast vineyard outside the remarkable structure. Then, head to the village of Campo Maior and catch sight of its magnificent castle and the Mother Church, which connects to the eerie Chapel of Bones (Capela dos Ossos). Visit other famous landmarks before stopping by at an Alentejano restaurant for lunch.

Continue to the well-preserved frontier town of Elvas, sitting next to the border of Spain and Portugal, inside an amazing star-shaped wall. Discover the remnants left by the different cultures that occupied the town, including megalithic monuments and structures dating back before the Roman era.

Itinerary

Depart from your hotel or apartment towards the beautiful Adega Mayor for a wine tasting with the untouched landscape of the Alentejo plains of Campo Maior. The architect Siza Vieira created this original building, a horizontal whitewashed volume. The wines of Adega Mayor have obtained, in the national and international level, a unanimous recognition from critics, having conquered over 100 awards already.

After this amazing wine tasting, go to Campo Maior, a lovely calm village situated in the vast Alentejo region, nearby the border of Spain. It is a land of history, tradition and costumes, where peace of mind and tranquillity are the rules. The heritage of Campo Maior is the living testimony of this rich history, as one can observe through its Castle, or through the beautiful Mother Church with its macabre Bone Chapel (Capela dos Ossos) built after the big explosion, or the São João Baptista Church, the República Square with its lovely Pillory, or through the interesting 18th century Santo António Convent. Between the sightseeing, you will stop for a typical “Alentejano” restaurant.

After lunch you will visit Elvas, one of the most important towns in the Alentejo region, situated next to the border of Spain, being since early time’s one important defensive point, built inside star-shaped walls. Visigoths, Celts, Romans and Moors occupied Elvas and left their legacy in the region. All the city is composed by a rich heritage, with an immense collection of megalithic monuments and a good archaeological set from the pre-roman and roman period.
