Jewish Alentejo

Welcome to the most beautiful of stories
There is a story we want to tell you.

Maybe we can whisper it in your ear. It’s a story of people, traditions, knowledge, and flavors. A story revealed by the great masters kept forever in endless secrets.

It will enchant you and make you race through the next chapter, far away, where the plain rests, warm, wide, and inviting.

Alentejo is like that, a land of healthy people, and that entrusts the olive trees with the most touching story. And this is the story of the Jewish path. So, in the end, I can only give you one piece of advice: follow the trace of your heart.

Walk through the whitewashed villages, towns, and cities, where time asks for more time to enjoy them; it can be everything. It can be the Jewish presence in a piece of architecture, food, or heritage of memories that hops from generation to generation.

Record every moment. High in your heart and with an open chest. Alentejo never betrays you and always tells you the most beautiful stories.
