Chimneys

Some regions in Portugal, like Algarve or Alentejo, have distinctive chimneys, with specific shapes and sizes.

Mourão is known for its “pepper-box” chimneys and I think that it is the only place with so strange constructions.

Memories of Mourão – Where they sing

Male’s choral

It is the strongest tradition in Alentejo the mellow songs interpreted by a group of several men singing at two voices.

The restaurant that we used has a tavern at the entrance where the owner and customers… sing.

We’ve been there twice and we always had the coral spontaneous performance.

​It is important to listen to the slow music (now UNESCO heritage), to better understand the slow pace that is Alentejo landmark.
