Herdade de Alcobaça

Land of monks and olive trees

We invite you to travel back to 1226, when in the Elvas region – a true paradise lost between plains and lands of olive trees -, the Alcobaça Monks, wise farmers with vast knowledge of good soils, settled here and started producing olive oil.

Elvas
Land of Olive trees

In Alentejo there are country scents and rich aromas, that become rare flavors.

Elvas, a true paradise lost between plains and lands of olive trees, is the ideal region to produce olive oil, where the influence of the Mediterranean weather, seasoned with soft breezes, contributes for the creation of one of the country’s finest nectars.

Tree of Life

In order do find the first drop of olive oil, we would have to travel in time back to the Neolithic period, when Man learned to extract olive oil from olives.
