Experience the Royal Retreat On Estremoz

Estremoz is known as the "white town" of the Alentejo, partly because of its whitewashed houses scattered on the hills, but also because of its white marble deposits, whose ancient and renowned exploration, contributed for this region to be once considered the largest marble exporter in the world . Estremoz is guarded by 2 lines of medieval walls and has around it a wine region that is considered, by many, the Bordeaux of Portugal.

You will get to see and feel:

Wines from the Alentejo Highlands – ½ day Tour

Magnificent landscapes of rolling plains, where the surrounding tranquility invites you to a stop and to enjoy each moment.

We will have the occasion to meet and taste the large variety of wines from this region. Whites have refreshing acidity, intense fruit and original aromas; red wines are fruity but fresh and are characterized by their elegance that lingers on the palate.

Lunch on a typical Alentejo restaurant, where locals go with their families and friends.

 

Experience the Royal Retreat – ½ day Activity

Besides the large cities (which in Portugal can be counted on the fingers of one hand), very few Portuguese towns have been the setting for as many dramatic moments of our national history as Estremoz, the marble city.

Kings and Queens have lived and died here. The old, upper part of town is crowned by a castle founded in 1258, now converted into one of Portugal’s best Pousadas, the residence of King Dinis and his wife Queen Saint Isabel in the early 14th century. She is the symbol of Estremoz and a peacekeeping Queen that has dedicated her life to charity and the poor.

On this journey across Estremoz we will visit the classic environments but we will also have the occasion to enter in some very special places like the shops where local artisans work, pastry shops where you can taste the homemade conventual sweets of the region, the public market, Moorish style buildings, churches and monasteries that served as spiritual support to a city which was involved in many conflicts.

You will thus have the chance to imagine yourself living through those decisive moments when the future of Portugal and its world expansion were decided.
