Beyond Montimerso's Border

This is Alentejo in its most rural version of carefully cultivated and sunlit fields with vineyards, holly and olive groves. Roads connect the farming communities and along the way they pass castles like Monsaraz. Made from limestone and schist, a medieval village located in the interior of Alentejo. The view that stretches over miles and miles lets us guess the ancient route of the Guadiana River and all the charms we can discover in this territory.
