Back Roads Alentejo Tour (Fall 2022)
October 9 - 19, 2022
This tour takes place in Alentejo, the Central Region of Portugal, a largely agricultural place where we will see expanses of olive trees, vineyards, citrus groves, and cork oak plantations in addition to many medieval towns with their defensive castles, churches, and plazas. We will travel along eight cycling circuits from Marvão to Évora, roughly 256 miles of largely traffic-free back roads. This is a region with its own pace and time, with echoes of past battles beyond the walled cities created by the tenacity of the people, where culture and spirituality take on a unique character.
