Birdwatch in Alentejo has linked up with accommodation partners all over the Alentejo region in order to promote birdwatching and attract tourists to our region.
Have you already visited the Alentejo? The largest Portuguese province with the lowest population density? This factor promotes the presence of many species of birds – in addition to the warm and sunny climate.
The historical and cultural heritage of Portuguese cities is known worldwide. The historic centre of Évora has been listed as a World Heritage Site since 1986. But did you know that close to the gates of this city there is an area classified by Birdlife and EU as an important habitat for birds? See our half-day program in Evora.
The Évora Plain IBA, covers more than 50,000ha and is characterized by extensive plains with sparse woodlands of holm oak and cork oak.
Spoonbill, Lesser Kestrel, Black-winged Kite, Pallid Swift, Booted Eagle, Calandra Lark, Little Bustard and Common Cranes in winter are some of the species it is possible to observe.
