The Alentejo around Flor da Rosa

The Alentejo around Flor da Rosa is beautiful – rolling hills, abundant water, Roman bridges, prehistoric tombs, and endless flowers. I often went out for an hour in the evenings, with the camera.

  1. The yellow flowers are broom, or Cytisus, and I have missed, somehow, the clay amphoras in the Pousada! Oh dear, I will have to return!! And yes, the Alentejo is gorgeous…

  2. Gorgeous! The bushes with the yellow flowers on the first 2 photos were traditionally used to make clay amphoras. The Flor da Rosa historical hotel has a wonderful collection of these.
