Senhora do Salto Natural Park

Paredes
Description
The Senhora do Salto Natural Park is one of the most popular places in the municipality of Paredes. This landscape of rare beauty is wedged between high mountains where the river Sousa flows. 

Here we can find the place named “Boca do Inferno", which has particular geological features and is imbued in great mysticism.
The Senhora do Salto Natural Park provides moments of peace inviting visitors to the practice of mountain biking, walking paths, rappelling and climbing.
Despite the existence of a deep valley, we can enjoy a long distance horizon if climbing the slopes of Santa Iria.
This area is integrated in the Rede Natura 2000, which provides protection to the fauna and flora habitats, making possible the bird watching (peregrine falcon, the swallow of rocks, among others).
This place is wrapped in a legend. It is said that a knight was saved from death by invoking the Lady`s protection after an unintentionally jump into the abyss.  As a sign of gratitude for the miracle, the knight ordered the building of  the small chapel of Senhora do Salto.
