South of Lisbon’s river, the Tagus/Tejo, there is a region called Alentejo. Houses are whitewashed with blue around doors and windows.
You can get your own traditional, hand-painted chair; we all do.
Wine is a growing industry. We visited Esporão, the largest wine producer in the country.
There are also Roman temples, gothic cathedrals (Evora) and castles (Arraiolos) to be visited.
And in Evora we stumbled upon the graduation ceremony.
