Peneda Geres National Park

Peneda Geres National Park

Portugal's only national park covers an area of 72,000 hectares and was founded in 1971.Two mountain plains - Castro Laboreiro (to the North) and Mourela (to the East) - form the boundaries of the granite semi--circle that makes up this Park. Between the two are the mountains of Peneda (1373 m), Soajo (1217 m), Amarela (1092 m) and Geres (1545 m), the highest and most extensive.Although some of the species are now extinct, such as the brown bear and the mountain goat, the National Park still presents a very varied fauna, with important species like the wolf, the roe deer, the wild boar, fox, wild ferret and otter. Breeding birds include Golden eagle, Montagu's harrier (above), Eurasian Scops owl, Eurasian Crag martin, Red-billed Chough and Rock bunting.
