There is much to see and enjoy: the spectacular fortifications of Elvas; Portalegre; the hilltop villages of Monsaraz and Marvão; the marble cities of Estremoz and Vila Viçosa.
This region is full of prehistoric remains, including more than a dozen megalithic sites with dolmens, menhirs and stone circles.

For most visitors, understandably, what attracts in the region are the towns and cities, notably Évora, whose Roman temple, medieval walls and churches put it on the tourist map.

South of Évora, in the plains of the Baixo Alentejo, without a car it is difficult to enjoy it to the full. Dependent on buses means you’ll have to spend nights in places where you could simply stop for a couple of hours.
To the west, the Alentejo coastline is almost as long as the Algarve, considerably less developed. Only a few small resorts – notably Vila Nova de Milfontes attracts crowds – the beaches are excellent and you can visit almost all of them by public transport.
