The Castles and Wine BIKE TOUR will live up to its name.
Most nights will be passed either in a castle or an old convent, now beautiful charming hotels.
Along the way, the great ancient city of Évora, world heritage site, and small fortified hamlets will tell the stories of wars with moors and Spain. The border is right there on the other side of Alqueva, the biggest artificial lake in Europe.
The loveable Alentejo people, at first shy, the Mediterranean typical gastronomy along with the wonders of cork, marble, olive oil and other crafts will enrich your experience. And the wine… well come and judge for yourself…
All this in safe backroads with some easy bits off the asphalt riding, with us by your side.
