The Alentejo region
is a must do, with the largest artificial lake in Europe, wines, beautiful landscapes, golden plains, water mirrors, vineyard, farming, architecture and a rich and diverse Portuguese heritage.
The ‘new’ Alentejo is a must. The largest artificial lake in Europe is here. The wines that are beginning to belong to the world and the cuisine, rich, rooted and unforgettable, are now living the rural modernity in an exemplary way. Landscapes arranged by nature and accepted by Man show that environmental perfection can be achieved. Golden plains, water mirrors, vineyard, farming, architecture and a rich heritage full of modernity is what we propose.
