The Alentejo is Portugal's 'outback' - the largest of Portugal's provinces, and a vast expanse of cork trees, wheat fields, grape vineyards, and olive groves.

This is a part of Portugal that runs at a slower pace - tranquil and rural - where traditional crafts (every town and village has its own craft specialty), and cuisine still remain the norm.

It is a fairly dry and flat area with few mountains and rivers - that yet still produces some of Portugals' best wines (there are Bodegas and wine cooperatives in Vidigeira, Borba, Reguengos and Redondo), and cheeses.

Cork is another of this area's main products - as is fine marble which is quarried near Estremoz.

This is great country for exploring by car. Get off on the local roads, and make your own discoveries. There are quaint traditional villages and castle ruins scattered all across this 'big' land. And you'll always have one of the wonderful Pousadas within a short drive of your previous night's location.

In fact, the Alentejo has 13 of Portugal's Pousadas closely spaced across its beautiful countryside.
