Ponte de Sor

With an area that exceeds 800 square kilometers, Ponte de Sor is the largest municipality in the Portalegre district. The town's toponym is due to the construction of a Roman bridge over the River Sor which, together with the Montargil reservoir, constitute the main water resources, fundamental for the municipality's agriculture. Currently, with great commercial and industrial activity, it is a reference for the global cork industry. Vases, safes and benches are some of the products designed in the region due to the abundance of this raw material. The main typical dishes of the local cuisine are fish soup, bean soup with fried “jaquinzinhos”, grilled largemouth bass, hare with white beans, lamb stew, Alentejo bread, "gazpacho" and "sarrabulho".
