Welcome to Serpa
Planted among the rolling hills of vineyards and dusty fields, Serpa is a sleepy, atmospheric town of bleached-white walls and narrow cobblestone streets. At its medieval heart is a small, pretty plaza carefully guarded by the elderly folk who have long called Serpa home. Locals are renowned for their love of food, and several factory outlets produce the town’s culinary jewel, queijo Serpa, a cheese made from curdled sheep’s milk.
It's worth a quick visit, or even an overnight stay if you want to experience life in the Portuguese slow lane.
