Climate

In the North Interior, the altitude increase that occurs with the interposition of the interior massifs leads to an increase of the Winter harshness, cold and snowy and with high precipitations (in some places exceeding 3 000 mm). The fog is also very common, except in the Summer, which is relatively warm. Beyond the regions where the oceanic penetration is no longer felt, the precipitation is lower and the climate has characteristics distinctly continental.

Heritage

In this area, it stands out the Douro River Valley, classified as World Heritage site. Vila Real is the ideal starting point to explore the Douro Valley and follow the famous Port Wine Route.


Landscape

 In this region, you will be able to observe the Alvão Nature Park, protected area with two distinct territories: a mountainous area often covered with snow and a basaltic area of river valleys. Also worthy of note is the Albufeira do Azibo Protected Landscape.
