The project Monte da Fonte Santa is always in construction. From the imagination of the family Tátá a dream is taking shape. A typical Alentejo farm with a personal touch made of Art. In the interior of the Monte we have works by the artists Victor Rosa, Paramés and Felicia Trales. In the exterior we have VHILS, Bordalo II and Add Fuel works.
The works of VHILS and Bordalo II were placed outside the property so that everyone can enjoy them. It is not common to find this form of artistic expression in a rural inland municipality of Alentejo. Monte da Fonte Santa is a unique project that wants to conciliate the Cultural Identity of Alentejo with the World of today.
