For those considering the Alentejo

The New York Times is at it again -- a pretty picture of the castle in Marvao and some suggestions about other places in the northern Alentejo area -- I'm surprised they didn't mention the pousada at Arraiolos, one of the prettiest, IMO. I guess their focus was farther east.

Great stuff--I love that area, especially Marvao.
We attended noon mass on Easter in Castelo de Vide one year. The priest must have been 85.

Thanks for posting this, Laurie. When I read it last night the mental wheels began turning in my head--future trip? I especially liked the food descriptions.

Laurie,
Seeing that you just posted this recently, I'm hoping you'll see this. Can you please check my response this week to your Lisbon walking tour post?
Thanks!
