Moimenta da Beira

Towns and Villages

The name of "Moimenta" refers to a funereal construction or mausoleum and is thought to derive from the fact that in prehistoric times there was once a burial ground here.

Aquilino Ribeiro, a Portuguese writer from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, christened this region "Terras do Demo" (The Devil's Land), although it is in fact a very pleasant area producing fine wines and fruit of the highest quality.

Surrounded by picturesque villages, such as Alvite and Leomil, Moimenta da Beira is situated close to the River Távora, where on the reservoir formed by the Barragem do Vilar dam there are excellent conditions for water sports enthusiasts.
