The oasis of Alamal is where this Live Story takes place, at the borders of the Alentejan province and alongside the Tagus, the longest river in the Iberic Peninsula. The hot Portugueese lands seem to be giving the people a break in this area, thanks to the refreshing waters of the Alamal oasis and the swirling wind of the Belver Castle on top of the hill. Alongside your local guide, walk the ancient paths towards the Castle and enjoy the stunning view (as the name "Belver" predicts). And then refresh your body and recharge your batteries in a stunning natural river pool. Delve into this unique experience and learn all about its history and local culture… and take home unforgettable memories!

2 things you will never forget

  • Refreshing in a sandy river beach, naturally stunning and with an impressive view
  • Enjoying the beautiful medieval castle of Belver, which means "pretty view" in Portuguese and which will leave you speechless

Discover what your amazing day will look like

Let's meet: You will meet your guide at Alamal beach. An alternative is Marvão, at the entrance gate; in which case, you will have an additional drive by car from/to Marvão.

First, we will chill out a bit at the beach, and enjoy the view over the Belver castle.

It's time for a break with a great lunch. Your guide will tell you anecdotes and stories about the area, a real oasis.

We will take the car and go all the way up to the castle to visit it. In spring or autumn, we can walk following the ancient paths, but in the summer, the weather is a bit too hot for that. The visit will last 45 mins, including the time you need for taking great photos over the river.

Then we will be on our way back to the starting point (Praia Fluvial do Alamal). If your guide takes you back to Marvão, you can ask for stopping at Amieira do Tejo to visit it as well.

... and this is just the beginning !

Not being in a rush. Leaving space for the unexpected. Enjoy the local vibe and create unforgettable memories.

This is what our experiences are really all about. So start your own Live Story, and let the magic happen!

Meet Sara, your Local Guide

Picture of Sara Rodriguez Romo

Hi, I'm Sara! I was born in Olivenza, a place that used to be Portuguese but is now Spanish. As they say here, I am a daughter of Spain and a granddau...ghter of Portugal; that's how I feel. I studied philosophy and archaeology. These are not only my passions, but also what the neighbouring provinces of Extremadura and Alentejo and their inhabitants radiate and share with their visitors. I also love to travel, and the best way to do so is to visit my friends all over the world, so that they can show me their REAL country. I believe this is the only way to get to know a place, and that is the person I would like to be for you! I am outgoing, full of energy and definitely a fan of history, mythology and legends. If you add to this a good little drink at the end of the experience, you will remember this moment forever.

The meeting point

Sara will be waiting for you at Praia do Alamal
