You will set out from the steppe land of Castro Verde to the valley of river Guadiana and drive through places that have stories to tell and experiences to offer.

Some highlights include archaeological sites (e.g. Castro da Cola, Mesas de Castelinho), protected areas (Castro Verde Biosphere Reserve, river Guadiana Valley Natural Park), museums (e.g. Southwest Writing Museum, Roman Lucerne Museum, Rurality Museum) and mining heritage (e.g. Minas de São Domingos, Aljustrel). Along the way, there are many spots for bird watching and to learn about the unique ecosystems of the area.

Exploring one of our itineraries is also a relaxing experience. The roads here are quiet and smooth, you can taste authentic regional food in the villages, and the people are welcoming and friendly. There are also abundant options in terms of lodgings, even in the most rural areas. Portugal Wildscapes is an incredible place for discovery.
