Odemira

The largest County in the Alentejo and Portugal. This is also one of Portugal’s best kept secrets in terms of it’s beauty (both in the mountains, the damn, streams or by the sea). Most of it’s wealth in traditions, handcrafts, mysticism, folklore and history is due to the many peoples who have populated the peninsula over the centuries and especially thanks to the Arab invasions and their influence of over the 500 years of occupation, visible in all the architecture, the tastes, flavours, the language, the place names, and the genetic heritage.
