In the central section of the Portuguese coastline, intense reflections on the water lend their name to this happy destination: Costa de Prata (Silver Coast).

The curative springs and the lush vegetation of secular forests have preserved all the rewards of their unspoilt nature.

The monasteries, convents, castles, churches, and museums witness the priceless historic and artistic heritage of renowned universal value.

As one of the most economically developed regions in the country, Costa de Prata is also home for famous traditional art treasures, such as its porcelain and crystal, as well as its gastronomy, strongly influenced by the sea and counterbalanced by its tasty Bairrada wines and mouth-watering sweets.


In the fishing villages or urban historic centres, the kindness of the people is but another asset to add to this bountiful area's vast list of qualities.
