Nuno Alvites, also referred to as Nuno or Nuño Aloitiz[a] (fl. 1017–1028), was a count of Portugal, a descendant of the first count, Vímara Peres as the son of Count Alvito Nunes and Gontina.
His presence is recorded for the first time in 1017. He appears in 1025 confirming a donation made by King Alfonso V of León to Nuno's brother, Pedro Alvites and again in that same year in another charter in which he states that he succeeded his father Alvito. He ruled the county with his spouse Ilduara Mendes, daughter of earlier count Menendo González, until he was assasinated in 1028, the same year as the death of King Alfonso V. Ilduara continued to rule the county, with her son Mendo, who was still a child, as regent after her husband's death.
