When you visit the region, you will certainly take home photos of the Alentejo. In addition to the recollections stored in your memory, the photos of Alentejo will take you back to these wonderful places.
The Alentejo is a very diverse region, representing one third of Portugal’s territory. The images you take on your mobile phone or camera will represent all the spots you visit, which have so much in common but are also so different.
Photographing the Alentejo in the interior reveals villages, towns and cities full of history and friendly people that were once protected by the castles and forts that are still here today. The landscapes are practically endless, marked by the trees that characterise these fields: the olive trees and the cork and holm oak forest. Lake Alqueva is a paradise for photographers. Throughout the region, here and there, there are testimonies of the prehistoric past. It is not difficult to recognise what UNESCO has classified as world heritage.
Exploring the coast opens new experiences to photograph the Alentejo that reaches the sea. Small fishing villages have their own quietness. The sea can be seen from the cliffs where storks and other birds also live. The lighthouses add colour and grandeur. We are surprised by unique spots such as Cais Palafítico da Carrasqueira (a pier on wooden stilts), the Island of Pessegueiro, the mouth of the river Sado, the estuary of the river Mira, all the landscapes of the Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina (South West Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park). The beaches can hardly be counted…
Taking pictures of the Alentejo, your Alentejo, wherever you go, will be a pleasure of the moment. But it will also be a delight to find them a few years later. We wish you amazing pictures while you visit Alentejo!
