Truly the best dinner I have had in a very long time at Tasca do Celso in Vila Nova de Milfontes, bread, local ham from the local black pig, and eggs, then an incredible steak,
Last night we stayed at Pousada Castelo de Alcácer do Sal, Alfonso II, a luxury property in a former castle, with a splendid view of the cute traditional village of Alcácer do Sal, with over 5000 years of history.
In the hotel’s beautiful courtyard, just before dinner at the hotel’s Rio Sado Restaurat.
My conclusion of this incredible trip is that The Alentejo area is a combination of History, culture, unique nature experiences, sports, hiking, sunbathing, food and wine, perfect for family vacationing or a tête-á-tête romantic get away.
