Almeida, Belmonte, Castelo Mendo, Castelo Novo, Castelo Rodrigo, Idanha-a-Velha, Linhares da Beira, Marialva, Monsanto, Piódão, Sortelha and Trancoso are villages located in the region of Beira.

These villages were important in the strategy to define the border between Portugal and Spain, having been granted many Letters of Foral with the aim of securing people in the region.

They have the privilege of being close to natural parks and mountain ranges that appeal to the conquest of their castles, historical centers and religious heritage through the pedestrian paths and to experience all the gastronomy, regional products and unique traditions.
