We are going to know the part of Portugal above Lisbon from its best side. One week trip with an extremly fun program, when we will capture all the best places.
We will visit Alentejo wine region which is also known for its extremely clear starry sky. We will walk through the forest of cork oaks. These trees are extraordinary, they are the only ones that have such strong regeneration capabilities, so the production of bark does not harm the trees. We will walk through the narrow streets of Redondo where the famous ceramic is producing. We will discover all hills of Lisbon and after an evening yacht trip we will relax at the local bar where the fado music is performing. Next stop is near the ocean where grapes are growing too. of course we will stop at the winery for degustation and lunch.
