Hi dear TE friends

Place: Odeceixe, Village of Portugal

Region: Municipality – Aljezur / Parish – Odeceixe (zone south (Algarve) of Portugal).

Theme: Windmills -Windmills in Odeceixe – video.

In the middle of the Alentejo coast, on the border between the Alentejo and Algarve, is the beautiful village of Odeceixe. Besides the natural beauty of the valley through which flows the river and its beach with the same name at the top of the white houses we can see a windmill still in operation. Property of the City of Lagos, which here has a pole museum, the mill was restored under the supervision of the master miller Alexandre Rosa Candeias, which continues to ensure its effective operation. It is a descendant of millers, miller himself in several windmills in the region, being one of the few who still knows the techniques and the art of building windmills.


I hope you like it, a big hug to all the friends of the TE.
