Portugal - The Beiras (Chapter)
This is the Beiras chapter from Lonely Planet’s Portugal guidebook.
Three worlds rolled into one, the Beiras offer as much diversity as any region in Portugal. From the sandy beaches of Beira Litoral, the highlands of Beira Alta to the hypnotically beautiful Beira Baixa, this region has it all.
- explore the hilltop labyrinth that is Coimbra, a home of fado, lip-smacking food, fabulous views and a marvellous historic university
- hike alongside the glistening Rio Zêzere outside Manteigas, past shepherds’ huts and soaring peaks
- admire the art nouveau facades lining the canals of Aveiro, then hit the streets for some of the Beiras’ most animated nightlife
- restaurants & accommodation
