Provincial capital Castelo Branco is a lively place with plenty going on. It boasts some impressive modern architecture and a few excellent museums, as well as an authentic, if slightly run-down, medieval centre. The modern town, which features an attractive series of tree-lined squares and boulevards, makes a good jumping-off point for exploring the Beiras’ southern reaches and outlying villages such as Monsanto and Idanha-a-Velha.
