Aguiar da Beira is a small county in the center of Portugal. With an impressive forested area, lovely sights, historical monuments and tasty regional gastronomy, Aguiar da Beira met Orienteering for the first time in 2014. Since then, many have been to the races held in the area and many Orienteers have visited us, both for competition and training camps.
