The whole day on feet!
The area around the town of Beja belongs to most warmest ones in Portugal. The thermometer shows us, just for several days, the temperature higher than 40°C. Moreover, the temperature of 30°C could be noted even in the night. Nevertheless, this hot weather is very acceptable for olive-trees. The trees border a way towards small village of Serpa. The community is distant approx. 200 kms from Lisbon
"When you marriage me, I'll present you with all the town!" - Don Denis, one of Portuguese Kings, said. And Dona Isabel? She did not reply: „No!“, of course. She obtained Obidos. But its was no exception at that time period. Since 1282, this town became a typical gift for brides.
Lisbon Quarter - The Park of Nations - is a demonstration of perfect European metropolis, where Expo World Exhibition was taken place in 1998. The Portugueses were so enthusiastic to get the chance to organize this event that the face of the town was completely changed. New Vasco da Gama Bridge was open for public shortly before the exhibition starting date.
Hot Portuguese blood is uniting with hot weather bull fights, football (soccer) an wild night life - all this belongs to Portugueses. On the other hand, romantic snug corners, countless churches or irresistible vanilla baskets, have the same importance.
