Rising from the vast, golden plains of the Alentejo is the mesmerizing Serra de São Mamede mountain range. Here, the capital city of Portalegre’s winding, cobblestone streets lead to Baroque-inspired buildings, charming museums, and stunning religious architecture. The town’s cathedral dates back to 1556, but underwent significant alterations in the 18th century. Still, it houses an impressive collection of Mannerist paintings.
