Silver Coast – What to visit

Artvilla is located in the center of Vila Nova, a small mountain village in the foothills of the Serra de Montejunto. The village is part of Vilar parish from the Cadaval municipality, one of the 12 counties that comprise the beautiful "Silver Coast", the central part of the former Extremadura province.

The Silver Coast region has a strategic location on its approach to the capital city Lisbon - just 45 min away - and from there to Europe and the world - as well as other urban and cultural centres.

The Cadaval district, buffered by Serra de Montejunto, perhaps more than any other county in the region, holds on to its rural nature, the rusticity of its ways still maintain ancient traditions of rural culture and its people.

Serra de Montejunto

Throughout the hills there are traces of the presence of Dominican monks who left their mark; for example, a narrow stone path that joins the convents in the ruins of Friars Cemetery and others that allow beautiful footpaths. It is possible to detect the entry of some caves or grottos and observe or visit several windmills on the summit of the mountain. We invite you to know the best of the Serra de Montejunto Mountain.

Gastronomic Points of Interest

The land and sea are the main source of wealth of the "Silver Coast", making agriculture the main economic resource, namely the cultivation of vines and fruit, with special emphasis on the apple and rock pear. Field and sea that brings to the table rich western gastronomy both with most typical and succulent peasant dishes ("pig slaughter," the mountain goat in the oven, rabbit stew with rice ...) and in the sea produced delicacies (stews , clams ...), in addition to the abundant and variety of conventry or other pastry (Pão de Ló, Caldas “Cavacas”, Bean Cakes ...).
