Leaving Lisbon, we cross the bridge over the river Tejo by a beautiful landscape of olive trees, cork oak trees and vineyards, arrive at Évora – World Heritage of UNESCO. In the narrow streets of the whitewashed town, walk along visiting some of the most important monuments: the Roman Temple , the Romanesque Gothic Cathedral Saint Francis Church with the “Bones Chapel”, and the University. At the market we see and feel the richness of product used to prepare the most elaborate and appreciated gastronomy of Portugal. Along the visit we also admire the diversity and authenticity of local handicraft with cork, ceramic and copper objects. Lunch. In the afternoon, free time. Overnight.

Part of the morning at leisure in Évora, and then driving southward passing Beja (stop) where the highest tower of Portuguese Medieval castles dominates the town and the region.

Proceed along the cliffs to Cabo S. Vicente, the most southwestern point in Europe.
