The Alentejo (ah-lehn-TAY-zhu, meaning ‘beyond the Tagus River’), is a beautiful, mostly agricultural region, remarkable for its wide horizons, filled with soft hills that change colour along the year, from deep brown to green with white, red and purple, to golden. Sunsets and the light play are stunning. As the warmest weathered region in Portugal, its inhabitants are known for their slow-paced, easy-going lifestyle and distinguished song-like accents that are in great harmony with the Alentejo’s calm-inducing topography. So, if you are there, do like the Alentejanos, and do it slowly!

The main city is Evora, in Central Alentejo, with historic monuments, churches, and museums. Also in Alentejo, in the Évora region, was one of the development centres of early European megalithism (standing stones). A must see for any visitor here.
