The city of Beja is located about two hours from Lisbon and just an hour and a half from Faro. As we get closer, the 40 meter high castle tower of Beja begins to impose itself on the landscape, still far from the city.
This Wine Route was designed to travel through one of the areas with the greatest production of quality wines in Portugal. In addition to the wines, when strolling along this Wine Route, it will be impossible to escape the typical gastronomy and be amazed by the landscapes that you will visit.
On the way to Portel, you will pass by Cuba and Vidigueira, two well-preserved small Alentejo villages well known for producing good wines. Along the way, the landscape will be dominated by vineyards and olive groves as far as the eye can see. Portel has an imposing castle that defends the very white houses that are drawn along the slope. Near Portel, Alqueva and in particular Amieira beach are prominent places.
Along this route, in addition to the vineyards and wineries that are a constant, there are also numerous restaurants with traditional food and excellent wine cellars where you can taste some of the best wines that these lands produce.
Continuing the route, we pass Moura, one of the oldest cities in Portugal, with its Moorish legends and centuries of history. Known for its olive oil production and quality wines, it is an excellent place to visit and spend the night.
