Recommendation 1

The main characteristic of Paredes de Coura is its natural beauty of which the "Protected Landscape of the Corno do Bico" is its main feature. The Landscape has its own center of education and environmental interpretation.

It is an archeologically rich municipality where you can visit Celtic houses, tumuli and dolmens. Take a stroll across a Roman road and bridge with very significant milestones. The Roman road, along with the Romanesque church of Rubiães, is part of the Pilgrim Route to Santiago de Compostela.
