The Pousada do Gerês, Caniçada, is right in the Peneda-Gerês National Park, among the breath-taking forests, the translucent cascading waters and the unforgettable sights. Gerês is one of Portugal’s more attractive Natural Regions, considered by UNESCO to be a World Biosphere Reserve. The Pousada is located at an authentic vantage point, overlooking the Caniçada dam in the Cavado River. In the background you can see the end of the Portuguese territory and the beginning of the Spanish territory. The landscape is of such a beauty that you will feel the need to swap the comfort of the Pousada for the chance to discover the Minho Mountains.
Discover a new world where reservoirs stretch out like blue blankets on the green vegetation, inviting you to enjoy the clear banks on hot summer afternoons. In the winter the blankets are of white snow leaving you with a dream landscape.
In the spring, the birches bring back the aroma of the Gerês Region, leaving visitors with a memorable experience.
This hotel in Gerês is just a few kilometres from the cultural capital of Europe 2012, Guimarães, with events not to miss.
The Pousada has 37 rooms which excel in comfort, truly inviting anyone who wishes to escape for a while from the stress of the everyday life.
The Pousada’s restaurant offers regional cuisine with influence from rural farming and made from natural products.
The honey, the reservoir trout, the baby goat, Barrosa veal, the sausages, the garden vegetables and the Minho desserts are unique delicacies, true treasures of the Portuguese cuisine.
