A region marked by perfect natural conditions to develop agricultural activities and rich productions of Wine, Olive Oil, Cork and so much more of the best traditional products. A region that includes numerous houses that complete the Wine Route of Ribatejo! Considered “the winter Sintra”, soon became the preference of the II dynasty Portuguese kings to practice hunting. Do to the proximity with Lisbon and Tagus River this area became the place where the monarchs and members of the court chose to spend their ludic times. It was a refuge to monarchs who sought a peaceful place and was also the stage of difficult decisions. After the disappearing of D. Sebastião in Alcácer Quibir, it was in one of the regions we passed by that the courts discuss the problem of who was going to succeed the young king, and decide the future government.
