Refúgio das Origens – Turismo Rural

Alentejo - Rural Tourism

The Refúgio das Origens is in Monte Novo do Vale Lousal, in Ermidas do Sado, in the municipality of Santiago do Cacém, in the middle of Alentejo, Portugal. This agro-tourism space is the result of the owners’ great desire to return to their origins. A lively space where you can enjoy the cork, the picking of mushrooms and asparagus, the picking of olives to produce olive oil. Here, you can enjoy and taste these flavors. You can toss the soil, sow and plant in the greenhouse, do manual watering, observe some rare species of the local birdlife. In the Refúgio das Origens nature is felt from sunrise to sunset. Refugio das Origens is located at IC1, about 135 kilometers from Lisbon. Just 3 kilometers separates us from the Mineira do Lousal village and the Museum of Ciência Viva, as well as the megalithic monument of Lousal. The city of Santiago do Cacém is 24 kilometers away, where you can visit the Roman ruins of Miróbriga or the Castle of the city. The beaches of Sines, Santo André and São Torpes are less than 50 minutes from the Refúgio. Badoca Safari Park is around 40 kilometers away. A little more than 1 kilometer from the Refúgio das Origens, it is possible to take a walk to the River Sado, to observe the nature and the water falls, which will fill the flow of the river. In the homestead, we have pets, our donkeys, Carlota, Cortiço and Peter, who are waiting for your visit.
