Arrival at Quinta do Barrieiro, in the heart of the “Serra de São Mamede Natural Park”, with a visit to the Sculpture Park of Sculptoress Maria Leal da Costa. Visit to the Sculptoress’ Gallery, where an organic infusion will be served.

Dinner will be on the same place where we start the “Cooking Class With Art” moment with the preparation of the starters and a glass of regional wine in hand: while cooking, and amid much conversation, we discover the gastronomic history of the Alentejo.

Accomodation at “Quinta do Barrieiro”.

Depending on the time of year, we either spend the morning with the region’s producers and discover the history and importance of some of the region’s richest resources such as Chestnut, Esmolfe Apple or Aromatic Herbs; or we embark on the Wild Mushrooms, where we learn to distinguish the edibles from the poisonous ones and how we can transform them into delicacies.

(Optional) Horseback riding in the Serra de S. Mamede Natural Park, lasting about 1 hour.

Arrival at Terrius space, an old Water Mill, explanation about the original space and then tasting of Terrius products accompanied by wines from the region.

Lunch at the “Varanda do Alentejo” restaurant with a unique view and one of the best cuisines in the region: bread, paio, Nisa cheese, olives and Marvão olive oil, tomato soup, potato migas (the traditional Marvão migas) with meat of pork, sericaia to finish and all accompanied with wines from the region.

At afternoon, free visit to Vila de Marvão, a medieval village surrounded by a continuous and intact wall, from where it is possible to experience stunning views. We continue with a visit to the Lagar Museu de Galegos – a small village very close to Spain – to get to know all the equipment and how the production of olive oil was carried out. We end with an olive oil tasting.

We dedicate ourselves to the small town of Castelo de Vide, on a free visit, one of the jewels of the Alto Alentejo region: we visit the Igreja Matriz, the Renaissance fountains, the reputed therapeutic waters, the Jewish quarter and go up to the unavoidable Castle.

Accomodation at “Quinta do Barrieiro”.

We start the day with a visit to Quinta da Fonte Souto, an estate and wine brand owned by the Symington family, in the Portalegre region that stands out for its quality: we visit the cellar and do a wine tasting.

Lunch in Alter do Chão, at the “Páteo Real” restaurant, full of traditional flavours: typical Alentejo starters, black pork cheeks or spare ribs with asparagus migas, with chard to finish. All accompanied with wines from the region.

Visit to the unavoidable Coudelaria de Alter (Stud Farm) where Thoroughbred Lusitanian horses and Falconry, UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, in the institution founded in 1748 by King João V, are waiting for us.
