Beiras province "off the beaten track"









Beias is a semi-deserted region in the Eastern Portugal. When traveling through this mainly rural region, one has a feeling of emptiness and some kind of pessimism.

Harsh climate conditions ( very high temperatures in summer and chilly winters with little rain ) turned most part of the Beiras into agricultural wastelands.

Driving through the scarcely populated villages one can wonder: What are these people doing here ? How do they earn their living ?
