Mission

Beira’s border (raia beirã) hides a living treasure with the present offering the future. Pathways to take drawn by history and traditions. Legends and moments saved in the lives and memories of its people, flavours that endure and renew themselves.
There is so much to discover in Idanha- a- Nova.

That is why we are committed to create moments and experiences so that this treasure can be shared, so that those who visit us, or are here can connect to this historic, ethnographic, gastronomic and natural treasure. We are committed to keep and protect this living heritage to bring together past and present and, through our Educational Service, call upon young people to build the future of this treasure.
We are an agent of promotion of the region, an ambassador of Idanha-a-Nova; we connect the local community and visitors, individuals and institutions to local values being faithful to the cultural offer of the region.
We offer a connection with the culture of Idanha-a-Nova.

Open to the past, present and future of this region, We are Porta Raiana.

Who we are

I grew up and lived in Lisbon, always passionate about heritage (natural and cultural), fascinated by history, nature and people. After receiving my Law degree, I decided to take a more informal path, dedicating myself to environmental awareness in the Oceanário de Lisboa (Lisbon Oceanarium) where I was an educator for 7 years. This brought me into contact with a diverse audience of all ages, different nationalities and fascinating socio-cultural backgrounds. It was during this period that I obtained a degree in Advanced Studies in Territory, Environment and Sustainable Development.

Our national heritage is like a vast and inspiring ocean and the next tide in my life took me to cultural heritage: for 6 years I dedicated myself to cultural heritage education and was also a curator at Egeac/ Fado Museum. In 2019 whilst participating on the executives’ programme "Cultural Heritage Management" in Nova SBE I started to recall an old dream to reconcile Cultural and Natural Heritage in the municipality of Idanha-a-Nova. This is when I started developing my own project "Porta Raiana", dedicated to an exciting region with diverse "heritages" in one single region.

I am a creative, determined and persistent person and this project is the opportunity to live and evolve in a region that inspires me: “It is in the countryside that our virtue and inspiration lies", faithful to its origins Idanha –a – Nova is open to the sustainable future.
