Although there are several route options, these are our top two choices:

  • Using a combination of the highways A-6 and A-66, you will pass right next to the city of Evora, capital of Portugal's Alentejo wine region and also home to some great Roman ruins. Right on the Portuguese side of the border, the town of Elvas is also worth checking out. Its aqueduct and fortifications are a UNESCO World heritage site. Once in Spain, the city of Mérida is only 10 minutes out of the way. Mérida is famous for its impressive Roman ruins which are also a UNESCO world heritage site.
  • Using a combination of the highways A-2 and A-49, driving through Portugal all the way down to Faro before crossing to Spain into the province of Huelva. This route is less scenic, but can be a great alternative for exploring the south of Portugal.
