The Region of Beja corresponds ipsis verbis to Baixo Alentejo, including 17 municipalities. You can’t talk about this region without mentioning a beautiful Portuguese landscape, where herds of pigs under the shade of cork oaks and holm oaks are combined with olive trees overlooking the many wheat fields.
One of Beja’s treasures is the valuable and diverse heritage, as are the cases of the castles routings that are mostly associated to churches and shrines: Aljustrel, Alvito, Beja, Mértola, Moura, Mourão and Barrancos. It also has an important archaeological road map: the Village of Mesas do Castelinho in Almodôvar, the Roman Villa of Quinta da Suratesta in Beja, the Roman City of Miróbriga in Santiago do Cacém, Castro da Cola in Ourique and St. Cucufate Roman Villa in Vidigueira.
The region is rich in choices of leisure and one of its high points is the St. Clara dam that offers a lagoon in a heavenly location, perfect for water activities. You can’t miss Alentejo littoral, still almost untouched by concrete. It has beautiful beaches integrated in the Alentejo Coast Natural Park, like Vila Nova de Mil Fontes, Almograve, Carvalhal and Azenhas do Mar, amongst other’s, and the coast lagoon of St. André, Melides and Sancha.
