Being part of the World Biosphere Reserve, which encompasses the Peneda-Gerês National Park, the landscape of Ponte da Barca is an explosion of colour to the tired and stressed out metropolitan eyes. These are images of nature’s blessing and manifestation, strongly and intimately tied to the local community: seeing as the mountains were vital for its protection; the river gave it life and progress; and the paradisiacal greenness of its most secret corners are enchanting. In Ponte da Barca, it is possible to find an excellent contrast to city life and everyone who visits falls in love with its beautiful scenery, delicious cuisine – here lamprey, barrosã veal slice, honey french toast, orange tartlets and wine are all kings – as well as with its timeless handicraft – lace, embroidery and linen weaver – to cherish forever. Don’t forget the festivals and hospitable people, along with so many other potentialities that make Ponte da Barca a desired destination.
