Parque Natural do Alvão

Ending at Minhéu, on the north, and on the Padrões de Teixeira, on the south, along 50 km, this park comprises the municipalities of Mondim de Basto and Vila Real and the Alvão and Marão hills. Those are separated by the Alto do Velão (Velão peak), at an altitude of 914 metres. In fact, the park is always above an altitude of 900 metres and constitutes a barrier between the shore and the inlands, together with the Gerês mountain. On the eastern limits, at an altitude of 1339 metres, the Alto de Caravelas stands as the highest point of the mountain massif that suddenly falls to the Cabril and Corgo valleys. The park is located in a region of great sceneries (Muas-Arnal, Fisgas de Ermelo).
