At 35 km distance lies the UNESCO world heritage city of Évora
. It is worth a full day visit. Estremoz city, at 20 km, is known as the “white city” because of the winning of the white marble. It has a rich history and the Saturday morning market
is a must. The village of Arraiolos, also at 20 km, is famous for its tapestry. But there are many more cities worth a detour like Vila Viçosa, Monsaraz and Marvão. The Spanish city of Badajoz is only 1 hour away.
