The Region.

Mangualde is located in the Central Region of Portugal Mainland far away from the district headquarters, Viseu, approximately 17 km.

 

The municipality of Mangualde, inserted in the vast plateau of Beira Alta, is bounded by the rivers Dão and Mondego north and south respectively. The slopes of these valleys, are fertile alluvial lands.

A chain of small mountains runs through its birth from the east - Lady of Good Success (Senhora do Bom sucesso) extending to the Lady of Tears (Senhora do Pranto).

 

From the geographic point of view, this region is part of a group called Ancient Massif. Has since been subject to a long process of erosion and flattening suffering later a rejuvenation with the Alpine movements.

The whole area is granitic, and its current forms result from the erosive action of its hydrographic network.

The climate is Mediterranean with continental feature, with cold winters and hot dry summers.
