Sousel, in the transitional area between Central and Northern Alentejo, is remarkable for the diversity of its landscape and for its rich religious, historic and cultural heritage. As most of the region is covered by either olive groves or hunting grounds, the roots of Sousel are primordially connected to olive oil and hunting and, in return, there resources are two of its main tourist attractions. But Sousel has more to offer. Around the old towns and villages that flourished under the influence of the Military Order of Avis and once belonged to the House of Braganza, you´ll come across an important religious heritage, with rich interiors and the traditional yellow stripes around the buildings. Sousel´s local cuisine, included in the Alentejo wines and flavours route, using ingredients such as olive oil, smoked sausages, game, cheeses and wine, is also unmissable. With enduring religious and bullfighting traditions (one of the country´s oldest bullrings is in Sousel) and strong bonds with the land, you simply must visit this municipality.
