Grandola

Grandola

Grandola is a typical small Alentejan town, south on the Setubal district.

A quiet place to enjoy some days or relaxation, anytime of the year.

Here hospitality, warmth, proximity and affability represent a form of life and an attitude which differentiates the place within an open and pluralistic space.

It is the revolution against the longstanding fascist dictatorship, which took place in 1974, which really put this town on the map. ‘Grândola, vila Morena‘ is a folk ballad ostensibly about this town, penned by Zéca Afonso in the 60s as a tribute to the camaraderie and socialist conscience of the hard labouring peasants of the Portuguese agrarian heartland that is the Alentejo.
