If you ask a Portuguese person about Beja they will tell you NOT to go there as it is in the middle of a desert and it is full of really sloooooow people (it is in Alentejo).

Beja is a small town located in the southeastern part of Portugal and at one time was a very important part of the Moors Empire.

Nowadays Beja is a farming community and a University town with a strange mix of farmers, students and migrant workers.

We have worked in this town a few times and look forward to visiting it as we find something new each time we do.

There is much history here and some neat things to see and do so if you do ever find yourself in Beja look around and see what you can find.
