Full description
The lovely Caldeirão Mountain is situated in the border with the Algarve and the Alentejo regions. The mountains present astonishing landscapes, as well as a wonderful natural, human, and architectonic heritage, housing a large number of diversified species of fauna and flora. On your tour, head to Cachopo, a picturesque mountain village, to see as some craftsmen work and to visit the ethnographic museum in S. Brás de Alportel, with its exquisite traditional handicraft exhibit. From the characteristic vegetation of the Caldeirão, see the sobreiro (Quercus suber) and medronheiro (Arbutus unedo). The typical houses of the Caldeirão Mountain are built in stone blocks, painted in white with cane. Throughout the territory, find several rural relics from bygone times, like water mills, dams, windmills, and barns, among other symbols of a rural lifestyle with ancestral origins. In the neighborhoods of the beautiful Guadiana Valley, visit the village of Alcoutim on the border with Spain.
