6 experiences for exploring O Xurés

The Baixa Limia-Serra do Xurés Nature Reserve and Peneda-Gerês National Park meet at the border between Portugal and Galicia, forming a unique cross-border space that covers an area of 267,958 hectares. In 2009, it was listed as the Gerês-Xurés Cross-Border Biosphere Reserve. .

Here, craggy mountains are interspersed with more gentle landforms and leafy forests contrast with a mountainous granite landscape, where the rocks assume unique shapes. Water takes the form of rivers, pools and natural waterfalls, as well as reservoirs, offering the opportunity to paddle through calm waters in the heart of Xurés.
