Every new project is a new discovery!
Alqueva is a tiny village in central Portugal, located in the municipality of Portel. The village is surrounded by more or less dry fields, even though the full summer didn't start yet. Along the main road, there's a restaurant where we had all our meals—breakfast, two snacks, lunch, and dinner. The quality of the food and the kindness of the owners were truly invaluable.
Alqueva is close to a dam equipped with a beach where families relax during their free time. We had the opportunity to spend a day there, even though it required a 20-minute walk under the sun and the 32-degree heat.
