A stone's throw from Lisbon, along the Tagus valley...

welcome to Portugal's agricultural heartland!

The Ribatejo is one of Portugal's traditional regions, known for its agriculture, wine, horses, bulls - and of course for the mighty River Tagus (Rio Tejo) which flows through it on its long journey from the Sierra de Albarracín nearly 200km East of Madrid, to the Atlantic.

Often overlooked by visitors and those moving to Portugal, it offers a taste of "real Portugal", with friendly people, beautiful landscapes, interesting towns of all sizes, and fantastic local produce and restaurants.

It's centred around the Santarém District, with its eponymous capital city - but also includes two other major towns (Abrantes and Tomar) - the map below shows it overlaid on the district plans.  The Lisbon to Porto routes (road and rail) pass through it, and it's well connected to Lisbon as well as having good road access to the rest of the country.

We'll post some more things about the area here over the coming weeks - but if you're interested in the area, or already living here, please do contribute to this section of the forum!
