São Lourenço do Barrocal - Alentejo, Portugal

Notes from the road

JUST BACK FROM PORTUGAL

Portugal has become a new travel darling for many great reasons. Lisbon’s unique architecture and colourful streets make it the perfect urban walking locale, and then there are the beaches of the Algarve and the vibrant wine city of Porto, too.

For us this month, Lisbon marked the start of a four-part private Camino de Santiago trip by foot lead by guide Silvia. After more than 500 kilometers, the journey will end in Santiago de Compostella, Spain. For those who prefer two-wheels, the vineyards, cork trees and medieval villages of the Alentejo region offer the best riding, based out of the new São Lourenço do Barrocal countryside hotel and spa.
