The village of St. Sofia

Santa Sofia stands has a small village with mor or less 60 inhabitans from which 90% are more than 50 year old.

Like in other villages in Portuguese country side, only old people stay there to live. The two last generations left long ago when they had to head Evora to have Secundary school and University. people start to live in the big town Evora or in Lisbon or any other place on hearth that has more than 30 houses...

People nnow live lonely with their memories of the first 50 years of the 20th century still on their heads. The Portuguese dictator Antonia de Oliveria Salazar had great poer until the last decade of 60's. Actually nothing had really chnaged here since then...

The sign that heads the village. This place here on the road is exactly 17km from Evora. The village is also 18 km from Montemor-o-Novo.
