ALENTEJO TOURISM GUIDE

Whitewashed marble towns and medieval villages

Marvao, Alentejo A cafe in 
Evora

Alentejo is Portugal's most memorable province to visit. It is also its largest, occupying almost one third of the country, but with the lowest percentage of population of any Portuguese region. For the most part it is a peaceful region consisting of vast wheat fields, rolling plains, castles, and whitewashed villages, all seen on the way to Evora, an ancient World Heritage city that should not be missed by any traveler to Portugal.

In between is a rich legacy of early civilization, with a series of megaliths, stone circles, and dolmens.
To the northeast are the "marble towns" of Estremoz and Vila Viçosa, where local marble is used in the construction of fabulous façades, and close to the border are many heavily fortified towns and villages, such as Monsaraz, Marvão, and Elvas.
