We are the Guardians of Alentejo
We love, care, and welcome like no one else
I want to become a Guardian
Alentejo in the first person.
The word we guard and that at its origin means “Beyond the Tagus".
Além, beyond. No other word embodies the spirit of The Guardians so well.
Go beyond, even further, in how we care for Alentejo.
Go beyond, showcasing the unparalleled beauty of its fields.
Go beyond, elevating the voice of its songs.
Go beyond, serving the best wines and flavours.
Go beyond, offering unexpected experiences all year long.
Go beyond, praising its people. Its soul.
All because no one knows these infinitely wonderful plains better.
All because no one knows its best-kept secrets better.
All because no one welcomes strangers better.
Without rush. Because, here, time goes by slowly.
All because we guard Alentejo with our hearts.
