Alentejo

The Alentejo region of Portugal is one of the least populated areas in Europe. It is very hot in summer and can get very cold in winter but it is a beautiful region crossing from the Atlantic in the west to the borders of Spain in the east. It is the farming region of Portugal and many famous Portuguese wines come from the area.
