Fresco Route Dukes and Duchesses
Alentejo is, in fact, one of the privileged centers of Portuguese mural painting, where one can find a number of significant beautiful examples. The territory of the Fresco Route is always the territory of the periphery, in relation to the urban scholarly arts. It is also the territory of permanence, of a natural order of things, in a world where almost everything is unique, where everything is authentic.
Cork Harvest and the Alentejo Wines
This precious and versatile vegetable tissue known as cork is the outer bark of the cork oak tree. Cork (cortiça) is most easily stripped off the tree in late Spring and Summer when the cells are fragile and tear without being damaged. The tree quickly forms new layers of cork and restores its protective barrier. No tree is cut down. This simple fact makes cork harvesting exceptionally sustainable, leading to a unique balance between people and nature in Allentejo.
Through the Sandy Soils of Setúbal
On the vicinity of Sado River and Arrábida Natural Park we find the great plains of Marateca with sandy soils lacking in minerals. The landscape foreshadows the one from Alentejo and the wines from the region can fully either pair with the heavier local meat dishes or with the terrific fish and seafood from the nearby Atlantic.
