Know More about this tour


Commencing our journey, we embarked on an immersive encounter at the Ervideira Wines' boutique, an ode to the finest offerings from their production. This distinctive experience promises a curated assortment of Ervideira wines, presenting a delightful odyssey through whites, ross, and reds. Each wine will be harmoniously accompanied by a delectable selection of regional delights. Among these culinary treasures are Alentejo's rustic bread, artisanal sheep's cheese, an array of flavorsome black pork sausages, traditional aromatic jam, accompanied by the richness of olive oil, and Alentejo-style toasts enhanced with the essence of olive oil and oregano.Anticipated to span approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, this remarkable journey comes at a cost of 10 per person, an investment in a sensory tapestry of flavors and culture.
Unmatched in the entirety of Portugal, the Cathedral of vora holds the distinction of being the largest medieval cathedral in the country.Dominating the city's skyline from its elevated position, the Cathedral of vora oversees the urban expanse below. This vantage point also serves as the chosen site for other significant landmarks in vora, including the iconic Roman Temple of vora (also known as the Temple of Diana), the vora Museum, and the Eugnio de Almeida Art and Culture Center.
The Roman Temple located in vora stands as one of the most magnificent and impeccably conserved Roman temples throughout the entirety of the Iberian Peninsula. Acknowledged by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1986, it holds a significant place in history. Often regarded as the city's emblem, this temple serves as a prominent symbol and a must-see attraction, rivaling even the famed Chapel of Bones in terms of recognition.
The Chapel of Bones, known as Capela dos Ossos, presents a strikingly macabre commemoration of death and stands out as one of vora's most captivating tourist destinations.Nestled within the confines of the So Francisco Gothic church, the Chapel of Bones lives up to its evocative name. It's estimated that the chapel is adorned with an excess of 5,000 skulls, many of which were unearthed from various monastic graveyards in the vicinity. Evidently, the expansion of these cemeteries became a spatial concern, leading to the concept of consolidating the bones within a single consecrated space. This initiative gained momentum when a 16th-century monk recognized an opportunity to convey the profound message of mortality and the fleeting nature of our existence.

    Vale a visita se for a alguma vinicola do Alentejo. Cidade bem charmosinha, acredito que de noite deve ser bem agradavel. Tem vários locals de comprinhas e barzinhos e restaurantes.
