Then make your way to Pavia, the landscape will not disapoint you and the town keeps a traditional architecture and athmosphere.

Day 3: Bike Pavia to Arraiolos (20km +300m)

Day 5: Évora Loop to Dolmens (38km +500m)
This day is the most challenging but the most spectacular, since the goal is to visit the pre-historic monuments. It will be possible to visit several historical sites with traces of the presence of Man in the plains of Alentejo since old times. This is a very important area for the scholars of this age of Mankind. Afterwards you will return to the old historic center! Riding in the countryside of Évora trough trails and quiet roads, it is all about enjoying the view. You can also visit a cork-hotel before the end of the day. This sounds fun!

Day 6: Évora Loop (25km +180m)
This day is reserved to see how in the fifteen hundreds the renascence people transported water to the cities. This spectacular ancient aqueduct has some visible structures and the goal for the day is to do a circular ride and follow this water channel system. Nice little trails alongside the aqueduct will be the joy of everyone. This can be the chance of going for some more caches. Returning to Évora it is time to do the last visits since the next day will be a departure to another typical village.
