LIVE AT GUARDA
Nature & Wellbeing
Granite rocks, a mountain climate, and pure, fresh air characterise the entire region. Come and discover our interior of Portugal.
ONE REGION, SO MUCH TO DO
The air quality, historically known for its healthiness and purity, was recognised in 2002 by the European Federation of Bioclimatism, which awarded Guarda the title of the first “Iberian Bioclimatic City”.
The city has a historical heritage worth knowing, starting with the keep built in the 13th century, passing through the old Jewish quarter, and multiple civil and military buildings.
There is a considerable offer of means to visit the region, starting with the 113 kilometres of official trails that take us along themed routes with printed guides available at tourist offices.
In particular, the mountain villages give an insight into a way of life that insists on surviving as part of this unique landscape and making the most of its resources, which gives rise to its very own cuisine: sausages, ham, and cheese are unavoidable.
