The Experience

The old railway running along the river Tamega, deactivated in 1990, is now a rail trail with 39 kilometres that make the wonders of cyclists with its natural and built heritage. Throughout rail trail, the green landscapes resulting from vineyards and forests, combine the disabled stations and monuments that were built there.

We leave you with the invitation to ride along the rail trail and get to know the most emblematic places like Gatão station with tiles recovered by the City Hall or the church that is part of the Romanesque Route. In Celorico de Basto you will find an old carriage and in the terminal station, the museum keeps relics of years past.

After you have done the rail trail, head towards Penafiel, the land of green wines where you will rest on the Solar Egas Moniz charming house.
