We invite you to discover the southern interior of Portugal: in Alentejo (beyond the Tagus). Alentejo is the largest region of Portugal, here you can discover very distinct landscapes, from plains extending to the horizon to the wild beaches of the coast through small white villages lost in time.
Beyond the idyllic landscapes and the beautiful sunsets, Alentejo is also a very rich region in flavors. The creativity of the local cuisine made from simple products such as bread, olive oil and pork are a hymn to the hospitality of the locals. The use of aromatic herbs is also one of the strengths of the local cuisine. You will find mint, coriander, parsley, and many more.
Come and taste the "Alentejano’s" dishes around a table where bread, olive oil and the famous wine of this region will be waiting to cheer up your palate.
The IN TOURS PORTUGAL team invites you to discover this destination located about 2 hours away from Lisbon. During your stay we will make you discover magnificent monuments that testify the passage of several peoples through this region.
You will also discover:
- Cork oak as well as marble and their uses in the modern world
- Local cuisine during a cooking class where you will taste the authentic flavors accompanied by a good glass of wine
- A wine producer from Alentejo

And finally we invite you to listen to the polyphonic singing: "canto Alentejano", UNESCO’s cultural heritage.
We must also inform the travel agents and tour operators that this discovery trip where landscapes, flavors, crafts and authentic villages prevail at a quieter pace because Alentejo is a quiet region where people appreciate the little things in life so the visitors must be allowed to have the sensation of stopping in time for real moments of relaxation.
