Day 1 Depart from Lisbon, heading to Evora in the Alentejo region by crossing the beautiful suspension bridge. Admire the city and the monument to Christ-King. Evora is a place where different civilizations have thrived and the evidence still remains. See the ancient "Temple of Diana" built in the Roman period, along with the magnificent aqueduct of "Agua da Prata."  Built further in the 11th and 12th centuries by the Arabs, Evora was the residence of Portuguese kings and a point of convergence for renowned artists that were supported by the patronage and dynasty reigning in Portugal. This period of discovery created a wealth in Evora that saw the construction of numerous aristocratic mansions of the city, such as the Jesuit university. The highlight, however, is the Church of San Francisco and the Bones Chapel, clothed with skulls and bones of 500 monks.

Patiesi iesaku pieņemt šo izaicinājumu un doties pilnas dienas braucienā pa Algarves lauku apvidiem. Šoferis bija patiesi zinošs un savu amatu mīlošs gids. Bagātīga informācija un pieredze par augu valsti, lauksaimniecību un vietējiem cilvēkiem.

The super friendly guide leads you over an exciting route. Take sunglasses and a mouth cover with you and then nothing stands in the way of having fun. It was a lot of fun
