Our proposal with this article is to confer the representativity of the Beira Interior journalistic movement in the regional and national space and its political-partisan filiations. Our main sources are, obviously, the newspapers published in Beira, whose facts we tried to compare and relate with the ones already gathered in historiographies and local monographies. The researches accomplished allowed us to conclude that the history and the geography of the Beira’s press needs a serious revision, to which we want to contribute, correcting throughout our text some inaccuracies with which we have been faced. We still want to point out the wealth of the press in analysis, the multiplicity of studies for which it can be used as a source, how many it can help to understand the historical reality, that highly justify its value as source and, consequently, its better preservation.

Keywords: Beira Interior, periodic press, elites, politic
