Natural Apothecary

Learn how to harvest herbs from the garden and prepare your own organic medicinal infusions, just as the old sorcerers did back when modern medicine couldn’t reach these mountains. Then, taste a variety of local herbal infusions accompanied by homemade biscuits.

During the rest of the day you’ll be able to spot and smell some of the Nature’s medicines in the wild, as you go up and down the hills of Gerês.

Let yoursellf be stunned by the massive granite landscapes, by the details of a well-preserved village and by the colours of magnificent woods.

For a great finale, and depending on the weather, you will bathe in the crystal-clear waters of a wild river or on marvellous hot springs that have been used for thousands of years.
