Valleys intersected by rivers and streams, terraces torn by shepherds' trails, mountains and plateaus that reach the horizon. These are the features that make the charming landscape of Trás-os-Montes the ideal destination for those who yearn for an adventure in nature. Wrapped in mysticism, mystery and longing, these pedestrian trails are encased in landscapes of great beauty and present a challenge for the more adventurous. Some were even Smuggling Routes, “hidden” paths in the middle of nature that guaranteed the passage of prohibited goods between Portugal and the Spanish border, during the dictatorship. All About Portugal gives you eight trails in Montalegre that suit all tastes and physical conditions.
