The Peneda-Gerês National Park, with about 70,000 hectares, extends from the Mourela plateau to Castro Laboreiro, including the Peneda, Soajo, Amarela and Gerês mountains. It is a mountainous region, essentially granitic, in whose high altitude areas the effects of the last glaciation are visible. Deep and embedded valleys support a dense hydrographic network. Remarkable botanical diversity - woods, bushes, riparian vegetation and peat bogs in addition to humid bushes - highlighting the presence of several rare and endemic species. The PNPG is home to some of the most important oak groves in Portugal. Interesting semi-natural habitats. Diversity of fauna species with different status: endemic (lusitanian salamander), threatened (Iberian wolf), species of limited distribution (northern carthian)... In the agricultural mosaic, lime meadows and marshlands stand out. Rich cultural-historical heritage (megalithic necropolises, traces of Romanization, castles, granaries, ovens, mills, levadas, terraces…) in addition to the curious implantation of mountain villages and the presence of well-preserved traditional architecture.
