Moura

Moura is located on the left bank of the Guadiana river, being its county partially bounded by Spain. This location was even, during the time it was integrated in Bética Ocidental, under the political influence of Seville, having played an important role in the foreign policy of Portugal. Its occupation, however, comes from earlier times, like it is proofed by the archaeological remains found throughout the municipality, with special highlight to the dolmens and burial places of Sobral da Adiça and to the megalithic set of Santo Aleixo, particularly in Herdade da Negrita, which currently works as an agritourism unit. From the pre-Roman period, the Iron Age, emerged the Azougada and Alamo camps. The gastronomy of the region is very rich and it is recommended to try the caldo de bacalhau (cod broth), ensopado de borrego (lamb stew), migas (dish made with leftover bread), sausages, and for dessert, the bolo podre (cake made with walnuts and Port wine), the nogado (fried sweets wrapped in a honey syrup) and borrachos (kind of donuts made with brandy and white wine). On the crafts are included the handmade footwear, the basketry, the "buinho" chairs and miniatures, the wrought iron, the tinsmiths, the pottery, the weaving, the leather and schist works and the wine.
