Gerês

Gerês has always symbolised the harmony between Man and Nature, a permanent sharing of activities and feelings of the people coupled with Nature of the inhospitable granite mountains shaped by time.

The waters run crystal by streams and clean air involves great diversity of fauna and flora providing a continuous feeling of calmness and pleasure.

Of undeniable value is the Peneda- Geres National Park . This is presented as the first protected area to be created in Portugal (1971 ) , the only with the status of National Park.

It is located in northern Portugal , sharing border with Galiza , which forms a continuous landscape with the Natural Park of Baixa Limia -Serra do Xurés in the municipality of Lóbios in Spain . The set of the two parks form the Transfrontier Park Geres - Xurés.
