From the Ribatejo to the Silver Coast.
The Ribatejo (Portuguese for Tagus banks) is one of Portugal's most fertile regions, thanks to the great river that flows through it. The marriage of land and river gave rise to fertile farmland with rice paddies, vineyards, olive groves... The Batalha monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is timeless proof of a rich past. The Ribatejo is also the region of Portugal where the art of Portuguese-style bullfighting is most deeply rooted.
