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.

-Food and drink: With all the fine restaurants around them, tourists in self-catering holiday homes in Cercal do Alentejo will not need to worry about cooking. They will have top class eateries such as the Tipica Quarta-Feira within easy reach. Here they can enjoy traditional Portuguese specialities and excellent local wine at incredibly reasonable prices.

-Beaches: Alentejo has its fair share of sun and sand which visitors can enjoy without limit. At the unspoilt beaches of Odemira visitors can take unhurried promenades and let the waters of the Atlantic lap up against their ankles. They can also climb the towering cliffs and enjoy breathtaking panoramas.

Weather in Cercal do Alentejo

Those making reservations for Cercal do Alentejo holiday homes during summer need to pack their sunscreen and hats as from June to August temperatures range from 26 to 30°C plus. There is usually no rainfall during this time of year so visitors can expect hot and dry weather. But tourists who wish to have an early holiday will still find friendly weather in May as temperature averages then are already in the twenties. Though temperatures remain holiday-conducive well into autumn, one may want to reconsider an Alentejo holiday then as rainfall is quite heavy between October and December.
