Through the plains of the Alentejo in Castro Verde. Across the territory of Europe’s largest flying bird, the Great Bustard, a unique bird diversity emerges. The variable landscapes of Campo Branco are home to some of the rarest and most charismatic species in the country.

Castro Verde, the heart of Campo Branco, with wide views to the undulating sea of wheat fields and pasture that merge with a sky of multiple shades.

Territory and landscape marked by ancient transhumant practices, and still dominated by extensive agricultural pratices, that is now recognized as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Important habitat of steppe birds like Great Bustard, Little Bustard, Stone Curlew, Lesser Kestrel, Roller and Calandra Lark, among many other species characteristic of that habitat. We invite you to come and birdwatch and photograph in this amazing region.
