    Beja - Portugal

    In the historic centre of Beja, this palace from the 18Th century, after several uses (even by the rural union) was bought by city hall and adapted as a social centre for third age.

    Well recovered it adds personality to the place.

    The animals

    Once a year there is a big animal show called Ovibeja where people from all over the southern area of Portugal bring their animals and wears to sell.

    During the Ovibeja week you can also find many good things to eat and drink around the fair. Some of my favorites are the different cheeses, you should try them all as each one has a different taste.

    It last about a week and is well worth seeing .

    Beja - castle

    The very beautiful tower of Beja's castle is the only one in Portugal built in marble (it took me 62 years to learn that! - blessed VT).

    Take a cool breeze from the lake

    Near to Beja on the Hills of Alentejo you will find along the lake quite a lot of horses standing near the water at many places to cool off from the heat during noon time.

    As you may see in this map, Monsaraz is neither in Beja, nor Portalegre. But it is an important cultural inheritance.
