Now a Unesco World Heritage site, the capital of the Alentejo has been a walled settlement since the Roman era. It will entrance you with its Moorish alleyways interspersed with arches, its shining white houses with floral terraces, ornamented balconies and paved courtyards. Walking through it, you will come across many medieval and Renaissance palaces, best seen at night when they stand out against a starlit sky.
