Portugal and Spain Leg 3 / Alentejo Region of Portugal

We home based in Evora for 4 nights and explored the  
Alentejo Region of Portugal.

The Alentejo is the breadbasket of Portugal, makes half its wine 
and is the largest producer of cork in the world. 

There are many megalithic monuments on the 
outskirts of Evora and throughout central Alentejo. 
About 2000 years older than Stonehenge.

Estremoz in distance


 Located next to the village, this quarry in Estremoz 
produces the extraordinary “Branco de Estremoz” 
white marble and the “Picasso” marble with its 
black veins and red hues.

Lot of small town off the beaten path
