Description

Day 1: Lisboa - Évora (+/- 140 km)

We will spend the day discovering the town of Évora and its mosaic of culture, history and traditions. As we leave Lisboa, we will cross the bridge over the river Tejo. By a beautiful and bucolic landscape of olive trees, cork oak trees and vineyards we will arrive at Évora, a World Heritage of UNESCO. In the narrow streets of the whitewashed town of Évora we will spend some time at some of its most important monuments: the Roman Temple, the Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral, Saint Francis Church and the "Bones Chapel", and the University of Évora. At the market we will find some of the fresh produce and rich flavors used to prepare some of the most famous delicacies of Portugal. During the visit we will also admire the diversity and authenticity of local handicraft with cork, ceramic and copper objects. After lunch, we will have the rest of the afternoon free to better discover the city. Why not try some of the region's delicious wines and cheeses?

Hotel: Hotel Muralhas Mar d'Ar (****) in Évora

Day 2: Évora - Beja - Silves - Lagos (+/-250Km/155.3 miles)

After breakfast at the hotel we will have part of the morning at leisure in Évora, before driving southward passing Beja. Here, the highest towers of Portuguese Medieval castles dominate the town and the region. We will cross the small mountains as we will enter in the Algarve. By fields of orange trees we arrive will arrive at Silves, the renowned town dominated by its red sandstone castle dating back mainly to Moorish times. We will continue to the golden sands of the Algarve as we pass by Praia da Rocha to Lagos.

Hotel: Hotel Vila Galé Lagos (****) in Lagos

Day 3: Lagos - Ponta da Piedade - Sagres - Cabo de S. Vicente - Lagos (+/-140 km/87 miles)

We will have breakfast at the hotel before travelling to the southern region of Algarve. We will stop in Ponta da Piedade and admire the magnificent view over the Atlantic Ocean, of cliffs sculpted by the erosive action of both the sea and time. We will continue to Sagres, a fishing port, for a visit to the fortress that was the mythical "navigation school" forever linked with the presence of Prince Henry the Navigator during the first days of Atlantic navigation and the discovery of the African coast. We will proceed along the cliffs to Cabo São Vincente, the southwestern point in Europe, and into the city of Lagos. This cosmopolitan town is known for its delicious Algarve dishes, such as the fish and shellfish cooked in a copper pan (cataplana), and fine sweets such as the famous marzipans, almond and fig cakes. With the free afternoon, perhaps you can enjoy a dip in the warm sea.

Hotel: Hotel Vila Galé Lagos (****) in Lagos

Day 4: Lagos - Setúbal - Serra da Arrábida - Lisbon (+/-330km/205 miles)

We will take a last look at the water while traveling along the coast, to say farewell to the Algarve. The return trip to Lisbon will take you to the city of Setubal, a major port and industrial center on the north bank of the Sado estuary. Then, we will take the scenic route over the Arrábida Mountain Range, an area preserved as a Natural Park at the gates of Lisbon, and savour the sweeping views of the Tróia Peninsula. We will cross the bridge over the Tejo River to arrive at Lisbon.
