Bellissima esperienza. Le strade risalgono tra boschi, diverse cascate e panorami strepitosi affacciati su Portogallo e Spagna, fino al confine che divide i due Stati.

Almost untouched nature but easily reachable. For real lovers of nature and landscapes.
Absolutely stunning! We went with our family and we had kids. All of us had a fantastic time. Would definitely recommend it.
Great place for hiking. Paths are clearly marked with stripes or rocks accordingly. There are plenty of (natural) fountains available to replenish your water supply. Every now and then you also pass a beautiful waterfall. In Erminada you can also do some basic shopping concerning food and other supplies. I can only recommend this parc.
