Gerês-Xurés Border Park

The Gerês-Xurés Transfrontier Park, which stretches from the Gerês mountains to the Spanish border, was considered a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2009.

This natural space with unique biological and landscape characteristics, stands out for its great variety of ecosystems and the numerous endemic species present in its habitats.

The site also has valuable historical, artistic, ethnographic and gastronomic elements, and holds a natural and cultural heritage of exceptional value.

The granaries of Lindoso

Espigueiros de Lindoso have sixty-four small barns and are considered the largest group of this kind in the Iberian Peninsula.

These buildings were used to store and dry each inhabitant’s grain, especially corn, and are living proof of the community spirit of the village which centered on the threshing floors.

Misarela Bridge

Located over the Rabagão River, the Misarela Bridge was built in the Middle Ages and rebuilt in the beginning of the 19th century. Built at the bottom of a steep gorge, this bridge is supported by an arch with a span of about 13 meters.

The Misarela Bridge is linked to several Minho popular beliefs and legends, which persist to this day in local routes, being also known as the “Devil’s Bridge”.

Pitões das Júnias

The Village of Pitões das Júnias is located in the municipality of Montalegre and is one of the most genuine high villages of Portugal.

The mountains that rise around it and the inhospitable climate in winter make the landscape bucolic. The stone houses are one of the great icons of this small village, responsible for its medieval look.
