Canicada National Park

The horseshoe-shaped National Park was established in 1971 to protect the pristine landscape of northern Portugal along the Spanish border. The bare peaks of the Serra do Geres are over 1500 meters high, while the damper valleys are jungle-like and overgrown with holly, oak, mulberry and strawberry trees. The mountainous terrain provides ideal living conditions for wild animals, including wild boars, wild cats, wolves and martens. Red kites, golden eagles, goshawks and owls find a refuge in the mountains, as well as snakes and lizards, newts and salamanders. If you wish to take a tour of the park you should plan a lot of time because of the winding roads.
