Central Portugal
Central Portugal is a region in Portugal, also known as Beiras and its capital is the city of Coimbra. Other important cities inside this region are Aveiro, Viseu, Leiria, Covilhã, Castelo Branco, Figueira da Foz, Guarda and Caldas da Rainha.

Central Portugal is a region of diverse landscapes. The interior is mountainous with some plateaus, dominated by the Serra da Estrela mountain. The region is forested with pine, eucalyptus and chestnut trees. The green, rugged landscape of this region is crisscrossed by rivers.

Several river valleys at the foot of the mountains have a full bodied charm that draw one to outdoor activities like fishing, tennis and canoeing. In the Winter season, skiing in Serra da Estrela is a popular activity, but in some places, like near the town of Seia skiing before the Winter season is possible due to artificial snow infrastructures.

The coastal plain has several beaches, like the ones of Mira, Figueira da Foz, Nazaré, Peniche and Aveiro. Natural landmarks in this region are the Serra da Estrela mountain range (the biggest and highest in mainland Portugal), with its Serra da Estrela Natural Park, the Mondego river, the Aveiro Lagoon (Ria de Aveiro) and the coastal beaches.
