Several historical sources confirm that this town already existed in 1236. It has a castle built by King D. Dinis, in ruins nowadays. Local economy currently relies on cattle production, cereals, olive oil and cork. Municipal holiday takes place on April 6th. Fronteira became increasingly famous for an international cross-country competition (Fronteira 24 hours). The former train station was restored, famous for its beautiful tiles. Cabeço de Vide is located 10km northeast from Fronteira. It is a picturesque village with a beautiful square and thermal stations (Sulfuria), already explored under Roman occupation. These thermal stations are a jewel of local heritage, along with the castle’s walls, relatively well kept. The former train station was also renewed and converted in a board house.
