The village of Ervidel still keeps interesting features for its visitors.
Walking along its streets allows one to find some subsisting charms, as the odd windows and chimneys. The imposing and beautiful school building stands out. Both the main church and São Pedro chapel (the latter close to Casa da Estalagem) are worth visiting. Also worthwhile are the small Museu Rural and Lagar de Azeite (oil press). Wine is an important tradition in the village too, with several wineries still remaining. Wine is celebrated each year in November, at the Vin & Cultura festival.
Casa da Estalagem offers its guests free bikes to discover the surrounding roads and paths, or the Roxo reservoir, where migrating birds can be seen.
The Roxo reservoir and nearby creeks, and the region’s hunting areas, are splendid places for fishing and hunting fans.
The town of Aljustrel deserves a visit for its mining traditions or belvederes offering amazing views of the region.
The city of Beja is less than 30 minutes away from Ervidel. Among the highlights is the medieval castle, featuring Portugal’s tallest keep.
