Ferreira do Alentejo

Belonging to the district of Beja, the municipality of Ferreira do Alentejo is composed of six villages: Canhestros, Alfundão, Ferreira do Alentejo, Figueira de Cavaleiros, Odivelas and Peroguarda. The profusion of water lines caused the land to become fertile from an early age, a fact that attracted, as evidenced by archaeological finds, people from the Chalcolithic period, as the Romans, Visigoths and Arabs. Markedly rural, it is at Ferreira do Alentejo that there is more movement provided by trades and by visitors. The religious monuments, mostly washed out in blue and white or yellow and white, feature, together with some buildings installed in streets full of history, the county's image. The regional flavors are another wealth of this region, from which are part: sausages, açorda de alho (kind of mash made with old bread and garlic), ensopado de enguias do Sado (kind of eels stew), carne de porco à alentejana (typical dish made with fried pork meat, fried potatoes and clams), açorda de beldroegas (kind of mash made with old bread and purslane), açorda de carrasquinhas (kind of mash made with old bread and golden thistle), the famous migas (dish made with leftover bread) and the gazpacho. The follow-up is, of course, the good wine of Herdade do Pinheiro, ideal for accompanying the ferreirenses, made from almonds and pumpkin jam.
