Where to spend Easter in Portugal

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (couple in our 60's) have recently booked a week in Portugal as a break from our trip to Paris in March, hoping for warmer weather. I didn't initially realize that our dates (March 22 to 29) include the Easter weekend. We've been to Portugal once before and on that trip we travelled North from Lisbon to Porto, so we've visited Sintra, Belem, Obidos, Coimbra, the Douro valley and various other villages in between.

On this trip we'd like to see places we haven't seen before, so we thought we'd head south from Lisbon. Our proposed itinerary at present is to rent a car at the airport and then head to Evora for 3 nights, head south to Albufeira for 2 nights, then back to Lisbon for 2 nights. But when I looked more closely at Albufeira it did not look like an appealing place to spend Easter, or really any time, as we're not beach people. We would like to find a picturesque small town or village with some kind of traditional Easter celebrations. Any suggestions or comments from the Portuguese experts? Or should we just head back to Lisbon and spend more time there?
