A little off the tourist circuit, this is a dynamic town, where marble extraction and wine production predominate, which in 2009 was promoted to city.
It keeps well cared for the signs of its past and the typical image of the Alentejo, making it a pleasant visit.
Highlights in Borba:
The castle, some churches and palaces, the extensive quarries and the Cooperative Cellar. Nearby, Évora and Vila Viçosa are the biggest tourist attractions.
