Immerse yourself in the history of Pampilhosa da Serra.
Inaugurated in 2010, Pampilhosa da Serra’s River Beach is an urban beach that feels like it is in the countryside. The dam was constructed next to the bridge, right at the the heart of the village and it totally transforms Pampilhosa in the summer months.

The Unhais-o-Velho river, and the valley it flows along, trace the line along which the village developed. The Town Hall, the Mother Church and other public services are in the immediate vicinity of the beach, but the immense green areas and sunbathing spots along the banks of the river, the views of the imposing and verdant surrounding areas and pure air quality, make it feel like we are truly in the country.

With lifeguards, abundant shade, several bridges between the banks and a range of facilities, the space also has the great advantage that nearby the gastronomic delights of the region can be sampled: Chanfana (Goat stewed in red wine), bucho (pork and rice), honey or arbutus brandy.

Pampilhosa da Serra’s River Beach is today one of its best picture postcards.
