Portalegre is a rich in chestnut trees. These trees have excellent quality wood for making basketware. The baskets and "canastras" (large baskets) are used when picking and carrying olives and the "canastrão" (sort of hamper) are used to carry bread. This region's baskets and "canastros" originate from the baskets used for exporting chestnuts to Brazil.
