Alentejo Region Holidays

The huge plain of Alentejo, which sweeps over the southern half of Portugal, is dotted with picturesque castle towns and quiet, hilltop villages, olive groves and fields of cork oaks and sunflowers. This sleepy province is an ideal holiday spot for those seeking heat, relaxation and a little culture.

Porto

This region is definitely a must see while in Portugal. The landscape is idyllic, large plains with olive trees wherever you look, sheep and cows enjoying the "slow"life state of mind. My suggestions on the countryside are Evora, Alqueva dam, Marvão, Monsaraz. The second biggest wine region in the country , there are a lot of wineries to visit, the majority of them have small hotels.
The coast side has , in my opinion some of the best beaches in the country: Troia, Comporta, Zambujeira do Mar, Odeceixe are some of the best.
It's also a paradise to foodies: try the "ensopados", sort of soup with fish or lamb with lots of coriander ( the most used herb in this region), black pig is also a specialty.
Traditional architecture are the white houses with blue/yellow edges. An old tradition is passed from ancestors that each year everyone has to whitewash their houses, so you'll see this houses everywhere.

I went there by night, took the ferry to get across the Tejo river, the view is beautiful.
We had incredible swordfish with wine for dinner at a small restaurant.
