Situated on the vast, alluvial plain of the Ribatejo, the region of Portugal where the traditions associated with horse-breeding and bullfighting are most deeply rooted, Alpiarça is a peaceful town which still bears the evidence of human occupation in prehistoric times, such as the burial sites of the Meijão and Cabeço da Bruxa (Hill of the Witch) on the outskirts of the town.
