Alentejo and Ribatejo
The Caminhos de Santiago Alentejo e Ribatejo cross two very distinct territories: different in their customs and traditions, in the way their peoples live, in the colours of their landscapes and the experiences they offer. Although they may differ, they share a distinctive genuineness that makes them unique and differentiates them from all others that help define the country’s borders.
The Order of Santiago
The Order of Santiago conquered much of the present Tagus river’s southern Portuguese territory, and was essential in the settlement and socioeconomic planning of Alentejo and Algarve’s swaths during the Middle Ages.
