Summary
The Alentejo, the raw, beguiling heartland of southern Portugal, accounts for roughly a third of the country's landmass but only about one fifteenth of the population. It also produces around a third of the world's cork. Even to other Portuguese, the Alentejo and its people are a bit of a mystery. The Moors occupied Iberia for several centuries and perhaps nowhere on the peninsula is as redolent of this era as the Alentejo. Although easily accessible from Lisbon or the Algarve, the Alentejo has a singular identity at odds with either the sophisticated capital or the pulsating resort areas. Instead, this is a region of vast, cork-forested plains; castle-crowned crags; expansive natural parks supporting rich wildlife; waymarked walking trails; historic palaces, castles and cities; pre-historic standing stones and dolmens. Its allure is strong yet it remains astonishingly little-known
