Peneda-Gerês National Park is in northern Portugal, near the Spanish border and is Portugal’s only national park. The spa town of Gerês is nearby. The park offers many outdoor activities such as hiking trails and camping. Keep your eyes peeled for the wolves, the Golden Eagle and the Pyrenean desman that live in the mountains. There are also many waterfalls and historical sites to explore in the park such as the castles in Castro Laboreiro and Lindoso, which date from the Megalithic period. Take a walk through the woods of Ramiscal, Albergaria and Cabril. Here, you can marvel at the beautiful landscape of the upper valley of the Homem River and Gerês mountain. Or you can discover the traditional villages like Campo do Gerês, and its narrow streets and granite houses. Campo do Gerês is eight miles (15 km) from Terras de Bouro where there is a Roman-medieval bridge and a milestone from the old Roman road linking Braga and Astorga. And finally, after a day spent in the mountains, take in the healing thermal waters of Gerês hot springs. Sounds like a plan worth pondering?
