Aguiar da Beira is a beautiful rural village from the Central region of the Country, situated in an area of great natural beauty, at about 781 meters high.

Probably the medieval Caste of the village was built over a pre-existent hill fort, occupied by Moors.
Aguiar da Beira is proud of its heritage, like what is left of the castle, the wall and the romanic adjacent chapel, as well as the São Pedro Mother Church (nowadays in ruins), and the Parish Church of Santo Eusébio, and the Misericórdia Church (18th century), along with other monuments such as the Romanesque Ameada Fountain, the 15th Watch tower or the Manueline Pillory.

Aguiar da Beia is also famous for the fertility of its soil, cultivated since remote times, and producer of renowned fruit and vegetables, mainly apples, potatoes and chest-nuts.
