The Central Portugal region
Alentejo - http://www.visitportugal.com/NR/exeres/EB35964F-03DA-465C-91E1-E46F1DEDD60E,frameless.htm
Golden plains that disappear out of sight combine with the sun and the heat to impose their own slow, steady rhythm. This is the Alentejo.
Inland, the vast golden wheat fields undulate in the wind; along the coast, unspoilt beaches look rugged and unexplored.
But don't travel northwards or southwards without exploring the region's coastline. There the landscape consists of high sheer cliffs sheltering tiny beaches. And there are also the sweet smells of the countryside, the herbs and spices used to season fish and seafood dishes.
In the Alentejo, the brute force of the land dictates the march of time.Perhaps this is why the region's culture has its own particular character.All you need to do is visit Évora and discover its Roman roots and the delightful charm of its heritage to understand why the city has been classified as a world heritage site.
When you see the temple of Diana and some of the city's churches, you'll regard your time as well spent.
Here the time passes slowly, because the Alentejo follows the rhythm of the land itself.

Tróia/Comporta - http://www.visitportugal.com/NR/exeres/C0BBC4E4-B7C6-40AC-8A59-C607A0849DC3,frameless.htm
The beaches of Tróia are kilometre after kilometre of white sand gently lapped by the sea. Along the coastal road, or on the dunes, all the way between the beaches of Comporta and Pego, it's easy to find a pleasant restaurant in which to enjoy a meal of tasty fresh fish.
And you only have to travel a few kilometres to change the scenery. At Praia da Galé, for instance, the line of dunes is interrupted, giving way to a five million-year-old cliff that stretches all the way to Melides.
If you enjoy playing volleyball, football or rugby, you'll find the goalposts and nets already set up for you on the beach of Tróia-Mar, close to the ferry that connects the Tróia peninsula to the city of Setúbal.
It's well worth taking the short ride across this narrow gateway between the mouth of the Sado estuary and the Atlantic Ocean. You may even be lucky enough to see some friendly dolphins swimming beside your boat.
Further inland are the cork and holm oak groves, pinewoods, and the undulating carpet of rice paddies that form part of the Sado Estuary Nature Reserve, where families of birds come to build their nests and spend the winter.
