The Guardian considers Alentejo one of the best European destinations for spring time
The British publication The Guardian advises a trip to the Alentejo in the spring to see flowering landscapes and escape the immensity of tourists who populate other European destinations.

There is still some time left for spring, but The Guardian has already elected those who consider six of the best European 'rural' destinations to visit at that time of year. One of them is very Portuguese, it is in the south of the country and it is the Alentejo.

«From March, the Alentejo region south of Portugal becomes a multicolored image: with yellow clovers, wild red poppies, white daisies and purple lilies to paint the landscape. With mostly blue skies, mild temperatures and few crowds, it's the perfect time of year to explore, "reads the Guardian text.

The newspaper highlights in particular the Alqueva Lake and the River Guadiana for its varied routes, both in length and difficulty level. But also Évora, which is a World Heritage Site, and the "beautiful landscapes and villages in the hills with storks". Historic sites also deserve mention.

«Stop at traditional restaurants to refuel, where specialties from the best ham (ham) to fresh seafood come at reasonable prices (about 15 euros for two people for a three course meal with wine)», ends The Guardian.

Amsterdam, known for its tulip fields where you can take a bicycle ride; Sardinia, where, among other activities, you can go kayaking; Romania, a stage of 'European safari' in the presence of bison; the Pyrenees, with scenic roads to take a roadtrip; and Puy du Fou, a theme park for families in France, are the other recommendations of the newspaper.
