There are many reasons to fall in love with this fantastic region, considered by many to be “the real Portugal”.
From breathtakingly beautiful beaches to the green of the hills encompassing fields of fresh fruits and vegetables, to the medieval castles and cultural events that take place all year long... the Silver Coast awakens your senses and invites you to enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
Here you’ll also find property prices with exceptional value, as well as a lower cost of living.
Located in the heart of Portugal, the Silver Coast offers plenty to see and do, great food and the hospitality of the locals who welcome the growing expat community with open arms.
The Silver Coast is especially known for its delicious local cuisine. The proximity to the sea allows local restaurants daily access to the freshest fish and seafood. Cooked with rice, in dishes such as the delicious Monkfish Rice, in "Caldeirada" stews filled with fresh peppers and potatoes, mixed with pasta and garlic or simply grilled over hot coals... the hardest thing is choosing which delicacy to taste while having a glass a of wine over a sea view!
Experiencing this fantastic region of Portugal also implies delighting yourself with the sugary goodness of conventual desserts and various pastries, where the Pao-de-Lo de Alfeizerao stands out, a sponge cake with egg filling and a unique aroma of cinnamon and lemon.
