The Beiras region of central Portugal stretches from the Spanish frontier to the sea and provides a natural link between the cool, green meadows of the north and the hot, dry pastures of the south.
Through this region passed all the old roads and through them traveled many ancient peoples - Viriato's warriors, shepherds, Roman legions, Christian Crusaders, Spanish soldiers of Castile, Napoleon's armies from France, invading Moors, pilgrims and merchants.
In spite of its relative small size, Mangualde became a city in 1986.
The small hotel of Casa d' Azurara has fifteen spacious and tastefully decorated bedrooms.
All the rooms have en-suite bathrooms, satellite TV, direct dial telephone and air conditioning.
