Regional Gastronomy and Oenology
One of the main tourist attractions in the Ribatejo Region is gastronomy, whose flavor is linked to fishing and the countryside.
Lezírias do Ribatejo and the great Herdade do Vale do Tejo are the origin of pure meats that popular knowledge welcomed at an early age. From the Alentejo came other influences, brought by those who came chasing dreams, and of which the Açordas and Migas are just examples.
As more examples of ingredients and products that most identify this Region, we have Carolino Rice, Olive Oil, Melons, Tomatoes and Sausages that abound in Lezíria. The Shad, the Fataças and the Eels come from the Tagus that crosses from South to North the Province Ribatejana.
The geographical variety also implies a myriad of work activities that are reflected in the daily routine of the act of eating, giving rise to dishes as characteristic of this region as Sopa da Pedra, Magusto com Bacalhau, Açorda de Sável with Roe likewise, Fataça na Telha, Borrego ensopado or Ninho de Touro Bravo Avinhado.
Celestes, Fogaças or Tigeladas are just some of the many sweets that the region's sweets have to offer.
