Lourenço da Montaria (and its fantastic river, Âncora) and Dem, belonging to three different municipalities: Caminha, Ponte de Lima and Viana do Castelo. The Serra d'Arga has a territory of 4500 hectares and is part of the mountainous massif of Peneda-Gerês. Also known as the Sacred Mountain due to its centuries-old paths, it hides several kilometers of Roman sidewalks that connect the villages in a unique and magical place! Wildlife is very present here. The Iberian Wolf finds in this massif an excellent refuge. The famous wild horses are hardly seen in such large numbers as in this mountain. The fox and many other animals find their home here. Serra d'Arga has its own microclimate. In Portugal there's no other mountain with so much altitude leaning against the Atlantic. Only ten kilometers separate the sea from the 825m altitude of this mountain at the North of Portugal. Its fabulous waterfalls are an attraction for both walkers and trail runners and even for summer swimmers. The "Pinchos", name for these waterfalls, are already a name easily recognised by most visitors. www.carlossanatureevents.com/en/gtsa
