My wife and I first discovered Portugal in 2005, while on a European cycling trip. We fell in love with the country and when we decided to retrain to teach English as a foreign language, Portugal was our first choice of destination.
We spent two years living in Viseu in the north and one year in Torres Vedras, close to Lisbon. When planning trips away though – camping, cycling and exploring old towns and castles – the Alentejo region was always one of our top choices.
This page contains a selection of shots – taken between 2008 and 2012 – that are some of my favourite Alentejo views.
