    The road there

    The western road

    There are four directions that you can get to Beja from, North, South, East and West. This is because Beja is a crossroads town for the southern area of Portugal and it is a meeting point for many of the smaller towns farmers.

    From the East (Spain) the road is narrow and pothole filled but it is the best way to come from Southern Spain to Beja. It is also the best way to get from Portugal to Seville in Spain. Along this road you will find the town of Serpa that is world known for the Serpa cheese that is made there.

    From the North you can come from Evora. There are many trucks along this route but you will find many small towns that are worth a visit.

    From the South you can come all the way from Faro on the southern coast of Portugal. It is only about 180 km from Faro to Beja but it takes forever as the roads are small and there is no place to pass other cars.

    From the West that is the way we drove the most as we were coming from Lisbon area.
    The road from the west can sometimes be very dangerous as many trucks travel along it and there is fog during the winter months.

    Once in town you need to find a good parking slot and leave you car there. There is no place in town that you cannot reach by foot and this is the best way to see anyplace that you visit.

    By car, is the Best. From Lisbon in direction to Évora, by the A-2 and A-6, then take the N 356 to Reguengos de Monsaraz.
