    Things to do

    -Hiking and biking: A morning of biking through the plains of Alentejo is a physically and spiritually enriching experience. As they inhale the crisp air while journeying through forests of cork-oak trees and neat vineyards, and then onwards to jagged cliffs and a picturesque coastline, holidaymakers will find the serenity and oneness with nature they’ve been craving. And they’ll get more of this as they travel further inland and stand in the midst of golden fields of waving wheat.

    -Old towns: Another one of the treats tourists putting up in Cercal do Alentejo can look forward to is touring pretty medieval towns. Wandering through the narrow, cobbled streets, visitors will be struck by unique architecture of the uniform, whitewashed houses. There are also ancient castles that remind one of the battles of yore. One of these towns, Evora, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    -Monuments: One of Evora’s most celebrated landmarks is the Tempo Romano, which is over 20 centuries old. It is regarded as one of the best Roman monuments standing today. The Capela dos Ossos (Chapel of Bones) is another mind-blowing site; the 5,000 or so skulls of previous residents of this locale are neatly arranged inside it. A visit to Alentejo cannot be complete without seeing the granite monoliths of the Cromeleque dos Almendres.
