Northern Portugal has the most unique features that are well worth discovering. Historic villages and castles that defended the nation's borders, schist and granite rock villages, which retain traces of an immemorial, ancient past. People are genuinely welcoming in receiving their visitors with the best they have to offer and there are flavors for every palate to comfort you. Serra da Lousa has some real scenic treasures and monuments and is also a choice location to explore nature by bike. The local trails are simply awesome: rooty, twisty single-tracks that drop into steep, super technical rock gardens and into fast whooping edgy sections through dense forests. That's why Lousa is one of Europe's preferred destinations for elite pro riders to come and do some off-season training. Along the way pass, through breathtaking and unforgettable schist villages such as Talasnal and Gondramaz, for a handcrafted souvenir and a delicious meal at one of the village's quaint and charming restaurants. Lousa is a complete and epic mountain bike destination with trails for every level; you can enjoy relaxing cross-country strolls, flowy single tracks to full on All Mountain and Downhill tracks. Visit historic villages and discover new flavors.
