Tips, hints and links
Borralheira is located in Teixoso Parish, whose settlement dates back to Roman times, as evidenced by some archaeological remains found in the Terlamonte area. Industry, agriculture, livestock, tapestry and embroidery, retail and services are some of the activities the active population engages in. The village has quite extensive architectural heritage. Worth noting are the parish church and the chapel of Santo Cristo, the latter classified as property of national interest.
The cuisine is very rich and diverse. Oven broth, pan in the oven, roast mountain goat, parsnips, maize porridge and rice pudding are the delight of visitors and tourists. The Ponte Alvares is located between Ferro Parish and Peraboa Parish, liking these two places to Covilhã City. This part of the river was onde used as a river beach by neighbouring populations. Families would gather there to fishing, have picnics, go swimming or even to wash clothes.
