Alentejo Apartments - Perfect starting point for a visit of the Temple of Diana
Among the diverse selection of historical attractions throughout Alentejo, one of the most incredible is the Temple of Diana, which is located in the breathtaking Évora region of Alentejo, Portugal. This dates back nearly two millennia. Being on the border of Spain, staying in Alentejo means you can easily travel to Spanish regions such as Extremadura and The Basque Country, and it is also fairly near to the South of France, where you could go surfing in Aquitaine. There is more to Portugal than just pristine countryside, as this destination is very rich in historical intrigue, the surface of which a traveller can barely scratch. But scratch away, and you’ll definitely be fascinated. You might just find yourself extending your stay in your rental property just to dig deeper and explore this magnificent area further. Moving on from the Temple of Diana, discover the Évora Cathedral, which artfully mixes Gothic and Roman architectural styles to present a remarkably intact 12th century work of art. Throughout the region, Roman ruins hearken back to that monumental empire, yet are dwarfed in age by the remnants of Celtic inhabitance. Nightlife is most buzzing in the coastal towns, and there is plenty of fun to be had. Enjoy your stay in your private holiday rentals in Alentejo!
