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.
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.
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".
Note from Adega Cartuxa: "We inform our customers that the sale of Pêra-Manca red wine is exclusive to those who take the guided tour of Cartuxa Wine Tourism, limited to 1 bottle per visitor, subject to availability of this reference."
