The Alentejo is a unique landscape featuring rolling plains dotted with ancient cork oak trees. A landscape unaltered by the modern world and the jewel of Portugal.
In the summer temperatures can reach a scorching 45°C in the burning heat of the midday sun but plummet to -5°C during the winter months.
We will set off in the morning and follow the N2 deep into this sparsely populated region. The roads are fast, straight and smooth and, as Dr.Hutch once said, ‘devoid of traffic’.
