Cork, Clay and Marble
One day, three towns, three products: Azaruja, Redondo and Estremoz
Highlights: Alentejo was known as a civilization of clay and cork is its noblest raw material.

At Azaruja we visit a cork factory where you can learn about the different processes and the most varied products made of cork, all about cork applications, as well as the observation of some old cork oak trees. We also visit a marble quarry in Estremoz, with the support of a geologist guide-interpreter who teaches us all about marble and its extraction.
