The Peneda Gerês National Park Tour starts with the departure of the city of Oporto towards the heart of the Gerês National Park, the first protected area in Portugal has a rich forest and animal diversity and shares border with Galicia, Spain.
The park occupies about 70,000 hectares and here you can find several species, such as wolves, eagles, as well as Pyrenean desman, various reptiles and amphibians, trout and salmon.
Following the course of the Lima river we will be very overwhelming by the beauty of the mountainous landscape heading up to the village of Soajo. In this village there are forms of community life style that still functions as a system of “brandas” and “invernias”, being famous for its gastronomy where the meat barrosã or even the cachena (local cattle) have special emphasis.
Throughout the course you can see several villages of granite, the most varied species and an immense area of nature in its purest state.
Finally, we end our tour with a view to the San Bento Sanctuary of Porta Aberta where its chancel tiles and the glided altarpiece are a must see.
