CULTURAL HERITAGE OF ALENTEJO
The lands of the Rotas Compadres is, always, the outskirts. The lands of permanence, of the constant, of the lasting, of a (already odd) regulation by the natural order of things: now fast foods, a world of tailors, where almost everything is unique, where everything is authentic. We focus on the lands of Alentejo: Alandroal, Alvito, Aljustrel, Barrancos, Beja, Borba, Castro Verde, Cuba, Estremoz, Évora, Marvão, Montemor-o-Novo, Moura, Mourão, Portel, Redondo, Serpa, Sousel, Vidigueira, Viana do Alentejo and Vila Viçosa. In Alentejo, the warm earth feeds the mighty cork oak, it proides the shade for the slow herds and where centuries-old traditions survive the modern times. We will seek and find authentic gastronomy, authentic nature and authentic people. We are essentially looking for a simple way of life, a simple, aesthetic and humanly enriching vision.
