TOURING MONTESINHO BY CAR
Leave Bragança on the EN103-7, passing França and Portelo and ascend to Montesinho. At the top of the mountains, turn right and take the forest road to the plains, where there are highland grazing areas. Here, at an altitude of around 1350 to 1400 metres, the brilliant sunlight and pure air emerges, making it an excellent place to rest and enjoy the snow in winter months. Return along the western side of the mountains, passing Porto de Sabor, Canteira and Prado Novo. On this road and during the descent to Prado Novo you will have a fine view of the mountain, flanked by the River Sabor.
