Mértola - The Muslim Heritage

The beautiful town of Mértola is a small Oasis in the middle of the almost deserted Lower Alentejo region. Streching from the castle down to the river Guadiana, the Town Centre has museums, shops, restaurants, cafes and people walking around. The surrounding areas are also worth a visit.

S. Domingos Mine - The Mining Heritage

The small village of S. Domingos Mine emerges from the remains of the ancient S. Domingos Mine, that once was one of the most important mines in the Iberian Peninsula. The old mine grounds are an impressive scenery. But this small village hides other wonders - the river beach and the locals.

    Ola Carlos :) A cidade parece muito bonita! Gostaria de passear-me por aquelas ruas estreitas ao longe do rio e visitar a tranquila praia de S. Domingo.
