Trilho Interpretativo da Ribeira de Covas

This pedestrian route crosses the Covas mountain range and passes by Azenha do Pagade, over the Coura river. With a length of around 4.5 kilometers, it passes through green areas of great natural beauty. With practically no unevenness, this route is characterized by its proximity to the Minho and Coura rivers, along which the richness of the area's flora does not go unnoticed, with its native trees offering shade to walkers. Its fauna is equally rich and worthy of mention, from birds to otters. You will also pass through part of an old area that carried water from the dam to the old power station, currently in ruins. This Hydroelectric Power Station is important because it was the second to be built in Portugal. A harmonious and beautiful place, ideal for a picnic!
