The Essential
Interesting
Mértola stands alone in the middle of the sweeping landscape of the Alentejo, appearing suddenly, all white, in terraces on a hillside at the confluence of the Guadiana and the Oeiras. It is a small town overlooked by a restored keep and the ruined surrounding wall of a fortified 12C-13C castle. It still has an old mosque from its Arab past (now a church).
