The sun’s rays, blazing the heat and light of the meridian, mark out a land of a nities in the southern half of Portugal. The Alentejo and Algarve regions are part of this realm of intense light, bright colours, broad horizons and high temperatures for most of the year. By the sea as well as further inland. The sensory opulence exuded by these surroundings is not, however, enough to hide the memory of the hard work of the people of this land. The idea of toiling from sunrise to sundown had an unusual semantic precision in these parts.
