"Estremoz, Vila Viçosa and Borba" Portugal Off The Beaten Path Tip by ant1606
Portugal Off The Beaten Path: 322 reviews and 400 photos
Located near Estremoz, Vila Viçosa is a quiet village where the façade of many houses is made of nearby quarried marble. The most impressive building is the Paço Ducal.
Tourists are very scarce in Borba and the genuine daily street market activities around the main square go on undisturbed.
A quick visit to these villages might reveal the real life in the Portuguese province, well portrayed by the quiet and merry pace of residents.
With so much to see ahead of us we had no time to stop in Estremoz, but the view of the walled city atop a hill covered with olive trees was quite nice.
