Serra do Gerês

On the extreme north of Portugal, between the Cávado and Homem rivers valleys, in the Peneda-Gerês National Park, one finds the Gerês mountain that is 35 km long, 18 km wide, and reaches an altitude of 1507 metres. It is a water filled area and the richest mountain in the country, both in its flora and in its fauna. Of granitical nature, the mountain composes huge amphitheatres and incomparable sceneries. It also has cultural points of interest, namely due to its pre-historic vestiges.
