Alentejo North East Vacations

WHY THE ALENTEJO NORTH EAST?

The cities, towns and villages that comprise the Alentejo`s North East region are a treat for travelers seeking a rustic getaway in an area known for its decadent olive oil and wine, clay dolls and Estremoz marble, Elvas plums and the hearty soup acorda. Quiet yet exciting, the North East offers dozens of must-see attractions for every type of traveler.

Due to the North East`s proximity to the border with Spain, castles were constructed between the 8th and 16th centuries to protect the area`s settlements. Castles of note include Castelo de Vide Castle, Alegrete Castle and Vila Vicosa Castle, in addition to the fortresses in cities of regional importance such as Portalegre, Estremoz and Elvas.

Before the Portuguese crown seized control of the North East, Romans and Moors ruled the land, and their influence can be seen at monuments such as the Roman Villa of Ammaia, the Roman Villa of Torre de Palma, and the Moorish-inspired Marvao Castle. Pre-history buffs will be excited to see the Anta da Aldeia da Mata megalith in person (as it is perhaps Portugal`s most famous). Those in love with nature will appreciate the region`s numerous valleys, great for biking, as well as the hiking trails of the Sao Mamede mountains.

Cities of interest in Alentejo North East include Avis, Castelo de Vide, Crato, Elvas, Estremoz, Marvao, Monforte, Portalegre, Sousel, and Vila Vicosa.
