Tried to drive up to it from the signpost (a good clear sign post) on the main road, ensuring gate was closed ( cows in fields) behind. Track a bit rough. No one in the farmhouse at the end of the track. There was a fork in the track (no signpost) where it was to be assumed the track would lead to the Anta. Had to turn around as there was a bull in the middle of the track.
Best views were in fact about 500 meters down on the main road, where it became apparent that the monument was surrounded by approx. 30 cows. The warning would be assess whether it is worth the risk visiting, particularly if the there are cows with calfs.

You have to go to see these tapestries to quite appreciate how stunning they are. They are beautifully displayed (excellent curating). It is the sort of experience that makes you think to go back the next day.

Situado no centro da Vila, perto da Igreja Matriz, deve merecer a visita de quem passa por Alpalhão. Este museu que foi inaugurado em 2001 dá-nos uma visão, uma ideia, das condições de vida de uma familia do interior de Portugal. A casa teve remodelações importantes para albergar o museu mas mantém muitas das caracteristicas originais, tal com o chão em pedra do piso térreo ou a lareira/fumeiro tradicional alentejana. Durante a visita aos 2 pisos da casa foi possivel viajar no tempo e imaginar como seria a vida destas gentes há muitos anos atrás. Sem dúvida a visitar. De referir que por um simbólico 1 € de entrada a visita foi excelentemente guiada pelo Ricardo Becho que em nenhuma ocasião se furtou a responder às minhas questões sobre esta pequena mas interessante Vila.

There are many Jewish quarters all over Europe but not many from the middle age and none from this period so well preserved as this one. One should also underline the role of the municipality considering the promotion and preservation of the Jewish buildings like the Synagogue and the Fountain. Enjoy!

Foi uma surpresa a descoberta desta casa museu na vila do Crato. É impressionante a grandeza colecionadora do Padre Belo. A casa em si e todo o seu interior, seja na vertente da arte sacra, seja na vertente do mobiliário ou das faianças revela uma paixão do Padre Belo por aquilo que colecionava. Misturando coisas simples sem qualquer valor com outras coisas valiosas e únicas é um deleite visitar as várias salas que constituem a casa-museu. De referir, também, a simpatia e a disponibilidade do funcionário/guia que num dia de fecho do museu abriu as suas portas e permitiu-me a sua visita. Igualmente de referir a grandeza dos seus conhecimentos sobre aquilo que mostra aos visitantes. Obrigado.

EXPERIENCE FALCONRY AT ITS BEST! Alter-Real Falconry was founded in 1997. Offers recreational activities and environmental education with birds of prey, promoting the preservation and dissemination of historical and cultural heritage of falconry. Learn how to handle and fly a hawk whilst enjoying the scenic landscapes of Alentejo in close contact with nature and wildlife. A lifetime experience!
We had a little trouble finding this- it was hard to locate on our GPS. The grounds are expansive and include a large and interesting stable with the Alter-Real horses. The horses are magnificent and their history is very interesting. The experience with the falcons(and eagles and owls) was incredible and this is really not to be missed and worth every effort to locate. The handlers were very dedicated and the displays and educational materials, including a short film, were fascinating. You learn a lot about this ancient sport and the interaction with the birds themselves is unforgettable. They are splendid creatures and it is a privilege to be able to hold and stroke them.
