Jewish Alentejo tour
Welcome to the most beautiful of stories
There is a story we want to tell you.
Maybe we can whisper it in your ear. It’s a story of people, traditions, knowledge and flavors. A story revealed by the great masters, kept forever in endless secrets.
It will enchant you, it will make you race through the next chapter, far away, where the plain rests, warm, wide and inviting.
Alentejo is like that, a land of healthy people, and that entrusts the olive trees with the most touching story. And this is the story of the jewish path. In the end, I can only give you one advice: follow the trace of your heart.
