Welcome to the English Alentejo4you site!
...a landscape that deserves more attention than it usually gets. The name "Alentejo" was first mentioned in the 12th century ("além" + "Tejo") and means "beyond the Tagus" or "across the Tagus". The region stretches from the river Tagus, the largest river in Portugal, to the Algarve. The coast of the Alentejo has been a nature reserve for years, as declared by the Portuguese government.
