DRIVE FROM VIEIRA TO CABECEIRAS DE BASTO
Venture out on a drive of roughly 40 km through the region between the Minho and Trás-os-Montes. You will find highlands and landscapes of rare beauty. Leave Vieira do Minho on the N205 and head for Ponte da Ranha where you will find a river beach. On arriving at Cabeceiras de Basto, do not miss the ancient Benedictine convent of Refojos de Basto.
The Ermal dam lies 10 km away from the centre of Vieira. We recommend a visit to enjoy the natural beauty of its crystalline waters. Famous for water sports, it is also an excellent place for a picnic or just to relax.
