We set up on a gravelled pitch offering some shade looking out on to a plantation of cork trees, while beyond is Siboe's small herd of reddish-brown cattle grazing. The Alentejo, a big fertile region, is the breadbasket of Portugal that makes half its wine and is the largest producer of cork in the world.

        Two of the supposedly nicest hill towns were not far off my route towards Elvas, so I thought I'd make a detour and check them out in the late afternoon and early evening.
