Meet the Alentejo
In Portugal, when we say South, we mean Sun. Not that there is any lack of it going up, but there’s a golden quality in the southern light that gives it an eternal feel. Not bad for a wedding, wouldn’t you agree?
The skies are wider in Alentejo, that is sure. You’ll be amazed by how much blue your eyes can reach in this region of golden planes, white houses, mystical castles, beautiful and unspoiled beaches, the most delicious mediterranean flavours and red wines… and a sweet and kind-of-long accent that reverberates in the moving traditional songs. And don’t get me started on the Alentejo nights, those starry nights… You better have a whole pack of wishes prepared!
This is a big portion of land, with one side touching the Atlantic and the opposite side leaning against Spain. The arab influence is still very obvious in some cultural aspects, such as the architecture, the food, the music; and, probably because of the wideness of it all, everything seems to be in place, tidy and shinning.
This is a place to relax and enjoy the wonders of nature. If your heart jumps at this thought, then your wedding belongs in Alentejo.
