Located 50 mi/80 km northeast of Porto and abutting the border with Spain on either side of the Lima River, Portugal's Peneda-Geres National Park is rich in mountain scenery and wildlife. The spa town of Geres, with its many hotels, is a good base. It's surrounded by lovely, pine-clad slopes.
Soajo is an ancient village with a Celtic pillory and fantastic espigueiros (small granite silos built on mushroomlike stilts). Lindoso is a similar town, but boasts a medieval castle. Hike or drive through the park to enjoy panoramic views, waterfalls, wildlife and longhorn cattle.
