Quinta da Esperança, best known as the “Priest’s Vegetable Garden”, belonged initially to the Priest Gabriel Rodrigues Pinto. It is a typical “monte alentejano” style house, built in the beginning of the 20th century, on 9 acres of centenary olive grove. It is one kilometer distant from Alvito’s centre and 500 meters from Santa Luzia Hermitage. It was restored in the past few years, through the use of local materials as the Barrancos’ schist” and the “caninha” (small cane).
