Mealhada is a municipality located in the heart of Portugal, which preserves a large amount of cultural and natural heritage. Its landscape is dominated by a wide expanse of vineyards, which give it a prominent place in the wine region “Vinho da Bairrada”.
Mealhada, like many other territories in this part of Portugal, experienced its heyday during the Middle Ages. This enclave is home to numerous natural resources from the hand of extensive fertile areas for the cultivation of the vine and the Sierra do Buçaco. It also stands out for its gastronomy, which has gained an important place in the country for its project “4 Maravilhas da mesa de Mealhada” (4 Wonders of Mealhada’s table).
