Our Region



Quinta do Mineiro is located in Matança, a traditional farming village in the council of Fornos de Algodres, district of Guarda. Here in the centre of Portugal, away from the tourist crowds, this region is truly original.

In 10 minutes from here you are on the Highway 25, about 35 km between the historic and interesting cities of Guarda and Viseu, worth seeing! The Spanish border is 70km away and in 1 hour you are on the beach in Aveiro.

Only 20 minutes away you have the Natural Park of “Serra de Estrela”, spectacular mountains rising up to 2000m where they hold many summer activities and even winter sports.

Also recommended are outbound excursions by car, motorbike, bicycle or a walk through our beautiful, unspoiled mountain scenery, with its picturesque villages and Roman and Celtic ruins. Our clean rivers are inviting for swimming and fishing.

Within a short distance you also have the medieval town of Trancoso and Celorico da Beira with its weekly farmer’s markets.
