The region of Alentejo has a vast open countryside with rich fertile soil where some of the finest produce in Portugal can be found including meat, cheese, olive oil and wine.
After you have been picked up from your hotel in Lisbon, you will head across the Tagus River to Arraiolos which is a small town typical of the southern region of Portugal.
Then you will visit the main highlight in the Monte da Ravasqueira estate. Here you will discover the vineyards and the wine cellars while also having the opportunity to taste the local wines. The estate is also involved in the production of cork, olive oil and honey as well as rearing fine cattle.
Afterwards, you will be able to see the collection of harnesses and carriages from various time periods in the Carriage Driving Museum. The family has a tradition of breeding Lusitanian horses for equestrian sports and the 1996 World Carriage Driving Championship was won by thoroughbreds from the farm at Monte da Ravasqueira.
You will also have the opportunity to go up the Castle of Arraiolos which has a uniquely circular walled defense before returning to Lisbon through the Vasco da Gama Bridge.
