In Covas do Barroso, it is still nature that dictates the rules governing man and animals. Gestures depend on the pulse of the earth and routine is imposed by natural cycles. Time seems to flow slow, without haste.

Covas is a great Nature Tourism destination. The importance of its natural, landscape, historical and cultural values are all too evident to those who visit the three villages that form the parish. Covas, Romainho and Muro.

From Alto do Castro, overlooking the three villages, you can enjoy one of the 10 MOST SPECTACULAR VIEWS OF BOTICAS.

Importance recognized with the Declaration of the Barroso Region as World Agricultural Heritage by FAO, an initiative of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

To travel through Covas do Barroso is to travel to simplicity, within a unique rural environment that still remains pure and unrelated to the routine confusion of large urban centres.
