Royal Alentejo

In Castelo de Vide visit to its medieval nucleus on the outskirts of the castle, which includes Jewry, and the lower area with buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries.

The Stud Farm of Alter do Chão was created in 1748 by king João V for the production of the Lusitano Horse. It was very dynamic by José I. It is located in Coutada do Arneiro, an enclosed space with about 800 ha.

Évora, the city-museum, maintains its medieval characteristics within the wall, which is why it is classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The Roman temple is the most imposing testimony of Ebora Liberalitas Iulia. Évora was taken from the Moors by Geraldo Geraldes who handed it over to Afonso Henriques. During the Avis dynasty, it became the preferred location of the Court, which frequently installed itself there.

Due to its location, Estremoz was closely linked to frequent conflicts with Spain. King Dinis had a royal palace built there that welcomed Isabel of Aragon. It was there that the Holy Queen reached the end of her days, on the 4th of July, 1336.
