Interesting old town center with tiny streets. A few restaurants/cafes, few people around as well but good to have a grasp about how small cities are in Alentejo.

The beauty of this place is that is not “tricked about” for the tourists, it holds a true feel of rural Portugal. There is a great deal of history here and especially the history of carpet making. Truly worth a visit.

A surprisingly wonderful town with a ton of history. A very traditional Portuguese town. Has a relaxed vibe. We walked everywhere. Beautiful narrow cobblestone streets. Visited the local museum, castle, church and town square.

The center of Arraiolos is like going back in time. Medieval looking buildings are everywhere, white with blue trim (and other colors, occasionally).

We really loved the quiet main square, locals settled in the square and foundation of the church. Would love to have just spent the afternoon and evening here but must move on. Had empanada chicken at the city square. Different experience and worth it.

While staying at the local Pousada we ventured into the village for a coffee. A number of places to choose from. Lovely quaint village.

Do not forget to visit the museum (1 euros only). It is nice to eat at the square of that little town.
