The Archiologist Luis Lobato Faria has designed seven fascinating walks illustrating the ancient history of Juromenha and surroundings.
In January 2012 the Alqueva Dark Sky Reserve was the first reserve in the world to receive a “Starlight Tourism Destination” certificate, awarded by UNESCO and by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).
The award “recognises the unique nature of the night sky in this part of the Alentejo”. The Alqueva Dark Sky reserve covers the municipalities of Portel, Reguengos de Monsaraz, Alandroal (Juromenha ), Mourão, Moura and Barrancos.
STARWATCH is undertaken with the support of the Alqueva Lake Observatory ( OLA ), which results in a scientifically accurate activity led by specialists. It can be carried out at “ Casas de Juromenha” with an astronomer and equipment of the Alqueva Lake Observatory or in the premises of the Observatory in Monsaraz.
