The Alentejo Region is renown for the city of Evora, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here you can slow your bicycle down for a tour through cobblestone streets and, perhaps, a visit to the Roman temple or the Gothic cathedral. In Évora, pedal to the Jardim de Diana, for a unique view of the acropolis. Take time to sample the local cuisine in one of the city’s many restaurants or, if you’ve mapped your bike route correctly, this would make an excellent over-night stop. Another city to explore is Estremoz, a classic market town, where you can pedal to the medieval castle of Castelo De Vide or tour through the city’s ancient Jewish quarter. Famous for beautiful hand-woven tapestries, the beautiful village of Arraiolos is full of interesting legends and the hilltop leading up to the town is dotted with white-washed houses. Bicyclists often make it a point to visit the fortified village of Monsaraz and the River Guadiana valley.
