Portugal Off The Beaten Path: 322 reviews and 400 photos

by micas_pt

As some other little villages in this area, Estremoz is built on top of a small hill, surrounded by beautiful plains and has a castle. The most beautiful spots in Estremoz are inside the castle. Formerly there was also a palace ? but nowadays it was transformed into a luxurious Inn. Still the Inn is opened to the public and having a drink there is worth the overpriced thing you will get. Near the Inn there is a tower and also a statue that I particularly enjoy (see photo). There is also a church worth visiting. Every Saturday morning the usually quiet square hustles and bustles with people ? it?s the local market and will find lots of fresh products such as fruit, vegetables and even chicken and rabbits. Estremoz has some outstanding restaurants, both fancy and popular, but still paying an expensive or cheap bill you will surely eat tasty food.
