The wide plains filled with wheat crops or with just some cork-oaks and olive trees give the illusion of a bigger and bluer sky. These hot and wild lands grow vines and produce some of the best Portuguese wines. Numerous people have inhabited the region, so there are traces of prehistoric, Roman and Moorish occupations in almost every village or town: dolmens, Roman temples, castles, churches and even Renaissance palaces. Besides plains, there are also the Marão and São Mamede mountain ranges, as well as the river Guadiana, which transforms the yellowish earth fields into beautiful orchards. You will have the opportunity to taste the region’s typical gastronomy and appreciate the wool carpets from Arraiolos, as well as the typical pottery, especially in Redondo.
