This city in Alentejo is worldwide known by its precious white marble.
A well-known name because of the marble that rivals Carrara (some of the so-called Carrara marble actually came from this region) this city, rich in history, is a highly recommended visit.
Surrounded by the castle walls, the old town, in the whiteness of its constructions, Estremoz guards all the authenticity of this history.
Highlights in Estremoz:
The old town, the gates of the wall, Congregados and São Francisco churches. Nearby, Evoramonte has a curious castle, and Évora is always a must see.
