A nossa Região

Terra Fria is the name given to a territory located in the Northeast Trasmontano, as opposed to another, the "Terra Quente".

The eastern half of Trás-os-Montes, corresponding to the District of Bragança, is divided into two distinct territories: Terra Fria Transmontana and Terra Quente Transmontana. The municipalities of Terra Fria include the municipalities of Vinhais, Bragança, Vimioso and Miranda do Douro.

Despite the names, the average temperatures recorded in the two territories are very similar, serving this division more in terms of morphology than in terms of temperatures. However, it is still true that in the mountains of Terra Fria there are the  lowest temperatures of the Northeast Trasmontano, and even  Portugal.

The Northern Interior of Portugal constitutes the territory that since the Low Middle Ages has been called Trás-os-Montes. Its extension and variability make it possible to distinguish different geographical units within it, which is why, since the end of the 19th century, some proposals for regional division have been produced, which, however, have not aroused unanimity (cf. Lemos, 1993, Ia, p. 85-87).

Carne de Porco Bísaro DOP

The Bísaro pigs, an indigenous Portuguese breed, come from the regions of Trás-os-Montes, Beiras and Estremadura. The meat is leaner and more bony than  the other pigs, and the diet based on chestnuts makes their little fat healthier.

Cordeiro Bragançano (DOP)

The meat of  Bragançano lamb  owes its characteristics to the conditions of the cold land of Trás-os-Montes.

Queijo (DOP)

Portuguese cheese from the Bragança district, in the region of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro.
