10 Glimpses of Northern Portugal: 5.Parque Natural do Alvao

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.

    1. 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.
