The great wealth of Mondim de Basto lies in the enormous diversity of attractions it has to offer. In this trip that we propose, we could not fail to highlight, first of all, Nossa Senhora da Graça with all its valences and charms and the Natural Park of Alvão, where the spectacular Fisgas de Ermelo, worthy representatives of our cultural, historical and environmental heritage.

Continue your trip because there are more enticing reasons: dream rivers, breathtaking landscapes, clear water streams and waterfalls, hidden corners, water, lots of water and an endless forest spot. Nature in all its splendor! Romanesque churches and chapels, imposing manor houses, coats of arms, old streets, paths and trails, bridges and medieval paths, forts, menhirs, sundials, pillories and "cruzeiros", in an absorbing walk through history and tradition. The surprises don't stop there yet: villages lost on the horizon, houses and balconies transmontane, sardines and carnation trees hanging from the windows, mountains touching the skies, hanging vines, baskets and stairs for harvests, wine cellars and mills, ox-carts squeaking, cornfields, threshing floors and granaries, shedding, watermills, Maronese cattle, herds and shepherds, washings, fountains, linen looms, working people, rurality as the primordial value!
