Parque Botânico do Castelo

Located in Crestuma, very close to the dam, this green refuge was born in 2009, as a result of the restoration of an old farmhouse abandoned by the municipality. Overlooking the Douro River, it rises between terraces, offering fantastic views and pleasant walking routes. There, it is possible to observe the native vegetation, namely species such as ash, cork oaks, oaks and strawberry trees, as well as archaeological remains.
