With Compadres, we come across Lower and Central Alentejo, passing by the most emblematic cities and towns on the territory. We uncover a vast and unique heritage that you can only find here in Alentejo, as well as cultural manifestations, traditions and authentic festivities that mark the largest region of Portugal.
In inner Alentejo, known for its open spaces and wide planes there is unique heritage to e discovered. Our programmes will take you to this way of life that is only felt here, this simple way of living, so enriching from a human perspective.. tradition, history, people, gastronomy, experiences… these are the keywords for the experience we offer you.
Compadres are the result of the experience gleaned by Spira over 20 years in designing, assembling and operating cultural tourism routes: Spira manages the first route of cultural tourism in Portugal, the Rota do Fresco, created in 1998, another three were added later on, devoted to the natural heritage (Rota do Montado), intangible heritage (Rota Pica-Chouriços) and industrial heritage (Rota Tons de Mármore). Compadres are the umbrella brand that brings together the current four routes Spira manages and mostly geared towards organized groups.
