  • Public clothes washing

    This place was used to wash clothes and every woman could have a place to wash and dry their house clothes. Nowadays its a bit out of use but still in very good conditions. Everything still works and everything is also painted new (like everything on the village). I still found a lday using the facilities saying that she made that 40 years ago so...

Santa Sofia Local Customs

  • Public Washing/Hanging facilities

    Old facilities back from the 50's where people used to wash and dry their house clothes together. This lady however preferes to use this as she was used to do back 50 years ago.

    more
  • Public Water

    You can drink water from here. Quite fresh and tasty. Places like this makes the experience of travelling on the region worth wild. I just love this little old places well preserved where you can notice how people could live here in Alentejo 50 years ago. The countryside of the countryside like I like to call it.

  • Local Lady

    Very nice lady that explained me the things about the villagee and the people that went away to bigger places 30 years ago. Can be quite lonely but actually if you think a bit, Evora is only 16km for here. For what I've seen, for her Evora is almost 400km.

    Well... if you stay to much time near this guy and you try to touch him, you'll have to make some sport alright. I hope that if that happens that someone has a set camera to photograph you. ;o)
