Landscape

In Winter or Summer, Spring or Autumn, come see the beautiful landscape... and be sure that each year it will be a surprise!

Castro Verde SPA landscape has been modified by tradicional farming practices, finding a balance through human intervention.

 

 

The correct  expression for this area should be "mediterranean pseudo-steppe", because it is the result of Human action, namely, extensive farming of dry ereals.  This is a semi-artificial habitat characterized by an agricultural mosaic that varies in space and time, giving the landscape a unique diversity and beauty!

 

 

This pseudo-steppe area spreads along vast  plains, without trees, across several municipalities of Baixo Alentejo. The landscape is dominated by fields of dry cereals, cultivated in a rotation system, with fallow lands, used as pasture for cattle.

 


 

 

Besides pseudo-steppe habitat, there area also some smaller areas with holm oaks, olives, bushes or wetlands adjacent to streams.
