Agriculture, tin and copper mining have been the mainstay of this region. The plains became a vast area for grain production and cattle-sheep grazing. Mining dates back hundreds of years with an abundant source of minerals including gold, silver, lead and iron. The richness and abundance of these combined ‘base economies’ grew to such an extent that Castro Verde became a regional center of commerce and thus a crossroad of cultures within the Mediterranean area.

There are several excellent vineyards within a 20 minute drive. Hertitage sites like Evora and historical towns such a Mertola Marvao and Serpa are all within easy reach by car. With stunning landscape and nature there are many outdoor pursuits and a very popular area for birdwatching artists and photographers.
