The National Park of Peneda-Gerês, located in the extreme northwest of Portugal, between Trás-os-Montes and Alto Minho, is the only Portuguese protected area that is currently classified as a National Park.

The vegetation surrounding this area includes a forest of holly and endemic species, such as the almost endangered Gerês lily.

Integrated in the Park are Peneda, Soajo, Amarela and Gerês Mountains, through which rivers and streams flow, cascading down to form waterfalls and later spreading out as reservoirs.

– In Soajo Mountain, situated further west in the Park, you can see a group of old stone granaries, commonly used to store grain.

– In Lindoso Mountain, this type of storage structure can also be seen. In this mountain range it is worth climbing to the castle, which overlooks the Lima River valley.

– It is in the village of Castro Laboreiro, located north of the Park, where the region’s sheepdogs breed.

– It is in Gerês Mountain, situated further south, that the reservoirs of the Caniçada and Vilarinho das Furnas Dams are located, considered places of extreme beauty.

– Near the Park we can also find the sanctuaries of São Bento da Porta Aberta and Senhora da Abadia – considered centres of great pilgrimages and pilgrimages.

Bordering the Park on the east side, we have the Cávado River, which shows us the way to the Barragem da Paradela. For all nature lovers and hiking fans, it is imperative to continue to Pitões das Júnias – a village where ancient community practices and traditions are kept.
