Alentejo Wines: Explore the museum city of Évora on a 1-day tour with a Wine Tasting at Cartuxa Winery

We know that, at least during the time of the Roman Empire, the culture of wine and vineyard was already a part of the customs and traditions of the populations inhabiting the territory that is now Alentejo

We invite you to put your 5 senses to the test. In this authentic experience, we promise an encounter with the beauty and monumentality of Évora, the undeniable knowledge and flavors of one of the most astonishing regions of Portugal, Alentejo!
Embark on a captivating journey to Évora, departing from Lisbon, and uncover the historical treasures and lush flavors of this enchanting city. Let us take you on a day tour filled with unforgettable experiences, where you can explore the most iconic landmarks and indulge in a wine tasting at the prestigious Cartuxa Winery.
We will commence our journey at the impressive Roman Temple, a historical landmark dating back to the Roman era. Immerse yourself in the grandeur of this millennia-old structure in the company of your local guide. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is undoubtedly the oldest among all of Évora's monuments.
Next, we will visit the majestic Évora Cathedral, an imposing cathedral that serves as a true testament to the city's rich religious heritage. Marvel at the stunning architecture and immerse yourself in the serene atmosphere of this sacred place.

The Giraldo Square served as the setting for numerous acts of faith that occurred during the period of the Inquisition. It has a rectangular shape, and the surrounding houses are white with medieval arcades.

You will be enveloped by the contagious energy of this historic gathering point. Feel the vibrant life of the city as our guide shares fascinating stories about the cultural and social significance of this square.

Prepare yourself for a unique experience when you visit the Chapel of Bones, a peculiar and fascinating creation. Enter this intriguing place and witness the unique decoration, made with the bones of more than 5,000 human skeletons taken from church and convent cemeteries across the city. It's an experience that certainly invites visitors to meditate on the ephemeral nature of life: "We bones who are here for yours wait".


And to crown this enriching experience, we will visit the renowned Cartuxa Winery, a true paradise for wine lovers.
You will have the opportunity to take a guided tour of the winery facilities where you will learn about the production process of the world-class wines.
