Located in the south of Portugal, The Alentejo region extends from the unspoilt beaches of the West coast over plains, through vinyards and cork oak forests to the rugged hills on the Spanish border. Fascinating towns and villages with a rich cultural heritage are scattered throughout the province. Full of vestiges of the past, the history of the area can be seen in Megalithic sites, Roman remains, Moorish relics, Mediaeval castles and Baroque palaces.
Alto Alentejo is the "High" Alentejo, the northern part, adjoining the Ribatejo province. Baixo Alentejo is the "Low" Alentejo or the southern part, adjoining the Algarve.
The beaches of the Alentejo lie in the Costa Azul - the blue coast - the Natural Park of Cape St. Vincent and the Alentejo.
