Further on to Monsaraz (another UNESCO site): Phantastic location on a mountain top, 360 degree views over plains, lakes, and nearby Andalucía. Car park in front of the village, walking only over wavy, ancient plaster stones. Just 3 parallel streets, whitewashed houses on both sides and a massive fort.Moura, another clean, small town, hardly visited. Interesting here is the fort and a small Moorish enclave full of flowers inside the old town.Next stop Serpa, again hardly any tourists in sight. Pleasant small town with big citadel. The entrance is through a cleaved tower, a result from the last earthquake. With complete old city walls and antique aqueduct gallery, this place is atmospheric and full of style.Drive through undulating countryside, with eucalyptus and pine alleys, lots of stork nests on telegraph poles. Once I counted 12 breeding couples in a row!Overnight in Mertola, picturesque in a bend of the Oeiras. Marvellous whitewashed old town on a hill, completely enclosed by the old walls of the citadel above. Life pretty much dies down after dark.
