Did you know that Portugal has, in its cultural heritage, a very genuine musical expression, unique in the world, the “Cante Alentejano” (Alentejo Song), now recognised as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO?

While travelling through Alentejo, you may be lucky enough to have a close encounter with a chorus of Cante in the streets or in a local restaurant near Vale de Camelos.
