Sometimes its good to get away for a while from the beautiful churches, bridges, streets and vineyards. This park isn’t too far off the beaten track and will definitely clear the head. There are plenty of hiking trails but its rugged terrain is also lovely just for a drive. There are a few small villages within the park but stock up on drinks and snacks before you head off….
…..and just enjoy.
No crowds up here….
Trails are well marked….
Fisgas de Ermelo waterfall is one of the main attractions.
A perfectly shaped picnic spot!

Portugal is full of magic and beautiful scenery, thanks for sharing and inspiring, yet another place to add to my wish list 😀
Before this visit, we’d only spent a few days around Lisbon a few years back – We’d a fabulous time and will definitely be going back.
Beautiful pictures!! The scenery looks amazing.
Thank you – We’d no idea that there was so much to see and do – We loved it all.
