Activities we can arrange for you:
An Insight into local Culture & Cooking
Singing Group in Alvito
Visit the singing groups of the Cante Alentejano at their weekly meeting in Alvito. The slightly melancholic a cappella music, believed to be of Moorish influence and still an important part of Alentejano identity will not leave you indifferent.
