Speaking a little enogastronomy or simply charming places, I selected a few tips that are truly unmissable.
Alentejo Wine Route: 65 Wineries that you can choose to know the barrels of the House Vineyards, Desgustar wines and eat lunch. Among them are the main winery José de Sousa wines José Maria da Fonseca – www.jmf.pt, Estate of the Spur – www.esporao.com, Cellar Charterhouse Foundation Eugenio de Almeida wines Pera Manca – www.cartuxa.pt
Almost all wineries require that scheduled visit, so set it up, visit the sites and schedule your visit.
If you are interested in other wineries go to the tourist support, which is in the center right in front of the square Giraldo, the attendant there can give you a list of all wineries available for visitation, or access www.vinhosdoalentejo.pt
Patéis Cod with White Wine Glass House, almost opposite the Church of Bones is a very simple restaurant that has no name on the door, got in late, so I decided to just eat some cookies, and not a full breakfast. It could not have been a happier choice, never in my life eaten or believe eat codfish balls so wonderful, sequinhos, perfect as these, just remember to write and I’m already salivating!
Be sure to try these pastels Cod with wine for only 5.50 euros.
Typical Restaurant Alentejo in Evora, the Medieval through sympathetic management Pedro Brito, has a very tasty food and a tiny, cozy environment with maximum capacity of 44 people, not only opens at Mondays.
Not very cheap, with the house wine 1/2 jar spend on average 25 euros, but the dish is served very well and can be divided.
The Medieval is on Raymond Street, 47 – Giraldo down the plaza.
Condestável Café Bistro, I had the enormous good fortune to choose a hotel close to the square of the Diana Giraldo, a seventeenth-century hotel, which was renovated but the structure remained nothing expensive and very comfortable. But the best part was that right across the street is the Constable, a charming bistro coffee, pastries, croissants, coffees and lunches delicious and very affordable, but the best is the atmosphere and clientele, well attended by young intellectuals tourists and curious to know what is happening there.
Had lunch there one day and it really surprised me, was very tasty, nothing too elaborate, but the flavor was crisp Comidinha well done.
Pasta with salmon and capers takes to prepare, fresh, homemade tomato sauce, cream, smoked salmon, lemon, capers and fresh onion.
Go check it out, if only for a coffee, Rua Diogo Cao, 3
