Pousada do Gerês - Caniçada, São Bento
The Peneda-Gerês National Park is found between Alto Minho and Trás-os-Montes, being the only area in Portugal to be classified as a National Park.
This region offers a wide range of options of open air activities and radical sports.
In the middle of the National Park of Peneda-Gerês
The Pousada do Gerês, Caniçada, is right in the Peneda-Gerês National Park, among the breath-taking forests, the translucent cascading waters and the unforgettable sights.
Gerês is one of Portugal’s more attractive Natural Regions, considered by UNESCO to be a World Biosphere Reserve.
The Pousada is located at an authentic vantage point, overlooking the Caniçada dam in the Cavado River. In the background you can see the end of the Portuguese territory and the beginning of the Spanish territory.
The landscape is of such a beauty that you will feel the need to swap the comfort of the Pousada for the chance to discover the Minho Mountains.
