In the centre of town a small odd construction called our attention. It was closed, and only back home I read about it. It is a religious chapel, announced as unique in its conception and it is now the symbol of the city.
In a short visit, Ferreira seemed to me a well maintained city, with the characteristics of Alentejo presente everywhere, but in a discreet way, evidencing that it is not a tourist top destination. Maybe a good place to live, more than to visit.
Lunch was the purpose of our stop in Ferreira, with the constraints of a baby in the group. It happened that we were the only customers in a wide and nice restaurante, becoming the center of the owner's attentions. He explained us that we were the last family to be served there, because the restaurant will be reserved for groups in the future. However, he explained us that he was opening a new space for isolated clientes in the park, a few meters away.
The food matched the sympathy of the owners, and we had delicious typical food from Alentejo, served with gentleness and the professionalism of someone betting in quality.
PS: A surprise - Maybe because we were the only customers, we didn´t notice the usual slowness of Alentejo
