The capital of the Lower-Alentejo, with white houses and straight streets, is a large agricultural market that mainly lives off trade in olive oil and wheat. Located on the vast plateau of the Alentejo, on the dividing line between the riverbeds of the Sado to the west and Guardiana to the east, Beja was a flourishing Roman colony (Pax Julia), then the seat of a Visigothic Bishopric and then suffered under the Moslems for four centuries.
