Amongst a living and authentic rural culture and a surprisingly wild coastline, Alentejo offers a unique experience of these two worlds. Its superb cuisine, fine wines and hospitable people make this a tourist paradise of the highest quality.
Comprising the Historical Way the Fishermen’s Trail and several Circular Routes, Rota Vicentina is the result of a careful selection of rural and coastal hikes, so that one can fully enjoy this pristinely preserved coastal area, as far as scenery, natural and environmental values, culture and traditions are concerned.
A wine producing region with a long tradition, the Alentejo boasts wines that will surprise you for their excellence, aromas and colours as unique as the landscape. And if you add the delicious Alentejo cheeses and the fragrant flavours of the Alentejo cuisine to the wines, your visit will surely be richer and more complete.
Did you Know? Portugal has, in its cultural heritage, a very genuine musical expression, unique in the world, the 'Cante Alentejano' (Alentejo Song), now recognised as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
