City of marble

Estremoz, easily reached from Evora,  is best known as one of three 'marble' cities. It's only too easy to work out why! No prizes for guessing what the public toilets, the pavements and the stairs in quite humble buildings are made from.

Saturday brings a large market into what may well be one of the largest open air car parks in Europe. It's like a cross between a flea market, a car boot sale and a produce street market and well worth a visit. There are about 5 adjacent stalls selling local ewe's and goat milk cheeses. The ewe's milk ones are very hard and make a tasty and long-lasting alternative to Parmesan.

The monumental area above the city is very attractive.
