Come and discover Alentejo, the largest region in Portugal, covering one-third of the country.
Picture the dry and golden flatlands but also the rolling hills, and lime-green vineyards. First of all, explore the incredible coastline, the marble cities, and the majestic mediaeval towns. Then, breathe in the open air in an endless space, enveloped by colors and scents emerging from the land. Finally, admire the unmistakable rural architecture standing on the hills of large estates, in old city quarters, villages, and chapels. Therefore, all of this is the result of passed-down traditions, preserved and renewed artisanal skills, and a maintained and recreated culture.
In fact, in this vast region, nature plays a predominant role in the territory. Moreover, in autumn, you can witness the arrival of thousands of migratory birds near Cape S. Vicente, a true spectacle for bird enthusiasts.
Eating, drinking, and snacking rituals are the key to socializing, entertaining friends and guests, and celebrating life too.
In particular, from traditional recipes to recent innovations in gourmet cuisine, including snacks and traditional sweets created in convents, the wines, cheeses, cured meats, and sausages are excellent. Additionally, the sweets and puddings are a “divine sin.” Furthermore, if you are a wine lover, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the famous wineries and taste every single wine.
Delve into the numerous parks and nature reserves of Alentejo and immerse yourself in the inland waters. Nonetheless, if you are more interested in culture, visit museums, castles, palaces, and many other places of cultural interest. And for those seeking entertainment, participate in festivals, markets, and parties, as you will have the chance to easily connect with people proud of their traditions.
Finally, throughout Alentejo, there are many events for you.
Seeing that, don’t miss the opportunity to discover everything that Alentejo has to offer.
