Looking at the stars
Alentejo is a privileged spot for star gazing. The area around the large Lake provides excellent atmospheric conditions and just the ideal brightness for star gazing almost year around. For this reason the Dark Sky Alqueva Reserve was recognized as the first Reserve in the world to obtain the ‘Starlight Tourism Destination’ certification, awarded by UNESCO and the World Tourism Organization (OMT). Become part of this old tradition of star gazing with ancestral roots in the Megalithic Heritage of Évora. From other planets to the craters in the moon, nebulae and galaxies, let yourself be wrapped by the night sky and the silent of Alentejo. Lose and find yourself again in the immensity of the Cosmos!
