South Red Quiet Sun Cork Sounds Music People
In the south the blood is redder or maybe not, the wine is darker, but also white, the people are quieter or maybe more talkative. It depends on the time, it depends on the sun, it depends on the wine, it depends on us.
The forests are of centuries-old cork oaks, the plains have fields of grain, the olive groves extend as far as the eye can see. And finally the sounds, the music, the Cante Alentejano, living in the south, leaving for the south, being from the south.

3 or 6 Days Program - January to December (*)
Groups from 2 participants

Located on a small elevation, surrounded by extensive plains, the town of Ferreira do Alentejo is today an important center of agricultural production with emphasis on the cultivation of olive groves and the production of olive oil. Legend has it that here there was a city with a Roman foundation called Singa, which was defended from barbaric invasions by the wife of a blacksmith, armed with strong iron mallets. Thus the name of the village would have been born. Only the memory of the Medieval Castle remains, as its stone was demolished in the 19th century to be used in the construction of the village houses and in its place to be built the cemetery. It becomes incredible as in lands with little relief and elevations, but strongly marked by water lines and irrigation systems, you can find such distinct landscapes and historical heritages so rich since a distant past.

Walk In Caminho de Santiago
ALENTEJO - RIBATEJO - LISBOA TAGUS RIVER - ALGARVE
GUIDED OR SELF-GUIDED PROGRAM
The Caminho de Santiago is a message of hope that goes back to the days of the Christianization of the Iberian Peninsula. Throughout the conquest of the lands from the Moors, called "infidels" for professing Islam, the new colonizers got used to giving thanks by returning, with cross and shell, along the paths that once served to advance with the sword. Perhaps in a desperate gesture of repentance, they seek redemption from sins and eternal divine indulgences. Currently, the Caminho de Santiago has an incredible demand, with some still searching for such faith in the apostle São Tiago and many for reasons of personal introspection, meeting with themselves or discovering new landscapes and inspirations.
