After breakfast, check-out and drive towards Évora where you will stay for 2 nights with breakfast included in a 4* central located hotel.
First stop will be at the impressive Espichel Cape (Cabo Espichel). It is the westernmost point of the Arrabida Mountain where we can find frighteningly tall cliffs. There are a few constructions here, mainly built in the 1700s and related with an old story that dates back to the 1200s: a church flanked by two arms of pilgrims’ lodges, a lighthouse, a chapel, and an aqueduct.
Then it is time to explore the fishing town of Sesimbra! Originally from the 12th century, it is now famous for fresh fish and wonderful beaches. Here we will visit a medieval and well protected Moorish Castle that stands in a dominant position overlooking a cliff, and it offers the best view of the village and the Atlantic Ocean. It’s lunchtime and we recommend that you enjoy the best fresh seafood that Sesimbra has to offer.
After lunch, we will cross the astonishing Arrabida Mountain, known as the blue coast. This is a protected area (Arrabida Natural Park) with many Mediterranean plants, from olives, pistachios, and strawberries, to lavender, thyme, and chamomile.
At the end of the day, we will visit a small family-owned local cellar in the middle of the peaceful Arrabida Mountain, and learn more about this precious nectar and this stunning area. Enjoy the vineyards, the beautiful landscapes, relax and of course taste some local wine.
Accommodation: 4-star hotel in Évora.
