Walking circuit through Faia Brava Reserve

    Located in the Coa Valley, in the interior Center of Portugal, the Faia Brava Reserve covers about 1000ha of land in the municipalities of Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo and Pinhel. In this area, the slopes of the Coa river are formed by granite outcroppings, with cliffs, providing great conditions for several species of birds.

        This territory also includes the Coa Valley SPA (Natura 2000) and the IBA (Birdlife International Important Bird Area) and, finally, it is integrated in the Archaeological Park of the Coa Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
