Regions of Portugal

There are 7 regions in Portugal

Featured Region: Alentejo

The name Alentejo combines the words “Tejo” (Portuguese name for the river Tagus) and “alem” (which means beyond or across). This means that the name is basically a description of where the region is: beyond the Tagus river.

This region makes up almost one third of Portugal – i.e. it is a rather large region. Agriculture plays an important role in the region, and most of it is flat – which makes it very easy to explore this region on your bike or even by walking.

The central area of the region, however, basically consists of flat areas, town and villages (and some still have their old town walls). Read More...
