Towns and Villages

Surrounded by large areas of forest and cultivated fields, in particular the olive groves and cherry trees that blossom in the spring, covering huge areas with a white shroud in a stunning spectacle, Proença-a-Nova is a town waiting to be discovered right in the centre of Portugal.

There is the ancient Roman bridge over the River Pracana in São Pedro do Esteval, the typical villages of Figueira and Pedreira, and in the town it is worth paying a visit to the Parish Church, with its superb 18th century woodcarving, and the traditional mill made out of schist, with its enormous millstones.

In the environs, the riverside beaches of Aldeia Ruiva, Fróia and Malhadal are popular relaxatiion spots, especially in the summer.

Outstanding features of the cuisine include the maranhos (sheep`s innards with rice, chicken etc.), feijoadas (pork and bean stews), sausages and the goat's cheese, as well as the cavacas (a light, crisp kind of cake) and the honey and olive oil cakes.
