Mourão, Alentejo, Portugal in Pictures

Mourão in the Alentejo region of south-east Portugal sits 9km from the Spanish border amid a vast network of lakes and rolling hills. It was a terrific welcome to Portugal as we fled the heat of Spain’s Extremadura and a happy surprise with its fine old castle, churches and well tended public gardens.

Take a little look at Mourão in our gallery.
