Povo que lavas no rio
Que talhas com teu machado
As tábuas do meu caixão...

Much to the despair of some friends and relatives, and to the joy of others :o), I have become very interested in Alcoutim in recent years. In 2003-2004 I worked as a volunteer for the local development association. Having a hard time at first, I was won over completely by the charms of this unusual place. It is a small, peaceful town in a very nice setting.

The village is of historical importance because of its strategic location on the border with Spain. Those who are interested can read more about its history in the travelogue section.

Pictures on these pages by my friends Sophie, Liesel and Katleen as well as myself.
