Region and places of interest

The Beiras stretch from the Portuguese coast right up to the Spanish border on the east, and take in three provinces with stunning interior landscapes. Beira Alta, to the north, is a succession of small hills surrounding the Serra da Estrela – at some 2000 metres it is the highest mountain range in mainland Portugal. 

Beaches, historic villages, queens and kings, UNESCO World Heritage


The Beira Litoral, as the name implies, goes up to the coast and the old university town of Coimbra. It has a magnificent landscape and beautiful sandy beaches and, above all, a great surfing paradise with the largest waves in the world as well as a number of interesting thermal resorts.


The Beira Baixa, to the south, is probably the least well known of the Beiras, yet possesses some wonderful historic sites such as Monsanto, considered to be the “oldest and most typical Portuguese village” and the attractive town of Castelo Branco (White Castle).
