** Very interesting


* Interesting


With time, Abrantes, Constancia, Barquinha, Alcanede, Benavente, Coruche, Golega, and, close to Turquel, Rio Maior

Family matters took me also to Alcobertas and Moçarria, but dancing was what pulled me deeper inside "Ribatejo", "rediscovering" some other places.

A special place was added, through some friends in our dancing team - Arrouquelas is just a village but Badula farm and its wine production became a mandatory objective for some great days in September.

Why not making it a regular VT meeting point? As you may verify... I will try

Folk Dance

Folk Dance in Santarém annual fair was a must. A good starting point to discover the unknown world (we were under a dictatorship) and the real Portugal. Now the fair despised the folk festival, and I "forgot" the fair.

Ballroom Dance

Ballroom dancing is now leading me to know and review several locations in Santarém district. That's how I went back to Entroncamento and Torres Novas, but that was also the pretext to "discover" Moçarria, Benavente, São Vicente do Paúl, Pego, and Vale da Pedra in Cartaxo, a place that Virtualtourist doesn't know.

Next time it will be Amiais de Baixo, where I've never been.
