Estremoz is a small Portuguese city in the Alentejo region, often known as one of the 'three marble towns' in Alentejo. (The other two are Vila Viçosa and Borba).

Get in[edit]

Easy bus connections, frequent to Évora and Elvas but also to Lisboa.

Get around[edit]


The top of the town with the castle, pousada and a museum, all constructed from marble, is very striking but it's also interesting to find pavements and staircases at very modest houses built from the same material.

Castle and Pousada



There's a big Saturday market on the large and unmissable Rossio carpark like a hybrid somewhere between a car boot sale, a flea market and a farmers' produce market. In particular there are about five adjacent stalls all selling delicious ewe and goat milk cheeses.
