Besides, the Limestone Massif - for its hydrogeological characteristics - provides, to neighboring areas, a remarkable abundance of water, truly exceptional in the Alentejo context.
2. Adjacent to the Serra d'Ossa, the most prominent geographical feature in the relatively flattened landscape of central Alentejo.
3. Near the Alqueva, the largest artificial lake in Europe and one of the main regional development factors, particularly in terms of tourism.
