82 - Driving towards the south...Alentejo

Some of the places I visited today on the way to Algarve. I went by secondary roads and I do not know how long I took because I'm on holiday. This region, once Arabic, is called Alentejo and in my opinion is the most beautiful of Portugal.

I've just scrolled through your photos, and thoroughly enjoyed the views. Thank you for sharing scenes in a country that is so far away. It's as if I've taken a vacation, without leaving my computer chair. Lovely photos.
