Baixo Alentejo

Language: Portuguese

Description: Baixo Alentejo is a province in the south of Portugal, north of the Algarve and including most of the district of Beja. The capital of the Baixa Alentejo is Beja. The province has 20% of the total coastline of Portugal but only 1% of the country's fisheries. Like much of Portugal, cork oak is produced in quantities but farming also concentrates on cattle-rearing, pig-farming and the production of corn.
