THE ALENTEJO REGION

These beaches are excellent for nature lovers who value peaceful settings in areas where man lives in harmony with the fauna and flora of Europe’s best preserved coastline.

 

The most outstanding of these is Odeceixe, at the mouth of the Odeceixe River on the border with the Alentejo region.  This beach is surrounded by cliffs, a distinctive feature of this coastal landscape.  This is a wide sandy beach with both sea water and fresh water forming small lagoons at low tide, just perfect for calm bathing and peaceful walks to neighbouring beaches.

 

More to the interior of the country is Arraiolos, home of the Arraiolos carpets, the result of the work and art of various generations and are still produced today.

THE VICENTINE COAST, LOCATED IN THE SOUTH-WESTERN NATURE PARK, HAS BEACHES WHICH ARE TRUE GEMS OF NATURE, YET WITH TOURIST FACILITIES WHICH MAKE THEM PERFECT FOR FAMILY HOLIDAYS.

Closer to the spanish border we find the Alqueva artificial lake – the largest in Europe which was also the first in the world to be a certified reserve for stargazing. Amieira Marina offers two types of river cruises on the Great Lake Alqueva that can be achieved through small cruises or by performing cruise stay in Houseboat, a concept often used in France and the rest of Europe that Amieira Marina created as a destination in Portugal in the Great Lake Alqueva, in the heart of the Alentejo.

"ROTA VICENTINA" BY ALENTEJO

TourGrades-Challenging

More south is the historical town of Monsaraz. The history of Monsaraz goes back to pre-historic times, having been occupied by romans, visigods, arabs and jews. The unmatched beauty of the city is enough to justify a visit.

 

Small in size but large in beauty, Vila Viçosa – known as the Princess of the Alentejo -  is one of those places that must not be missed.  The abundance of natural resources like stone has also given Vila Viçosa the title of “Capital of Marble”, and marble is in fact, the motor of the region’s economy as Vila Viçosa exports its natural resource to various countries around the world.
