Casa do Alentejo is a cultural center and a meeting point for people from the Alentejo region situated in a palace from the 17th century. While the outside of the former Palacio Alverca is unspectacular, its true beauty lies inside: moorish design including beautiful tiles and a huge patio.
Upstairs is a restaurant that serves typical cuisine of the Alentejo region. We stopped by Casa do Alentejo for lunch and had salads and some Vinho Verde which both were delicious.
But the best part of it is the old ballroom upstairs, it’s incredibly beautiful. We sneaked in after lunch while the waiters were setting the room up for dinner. My photos just don’t do its beauty justice.
