Melgaço is genuinely like this… Lord of “great peace”, as José Saramago, Portuguese Nobel Prize for Literature, felt. And so it is... In Melgaço, calm predominates, and often dazzles... The valleys, slopes and mountains that make up the county's landscapes are unique and of rare beauty. Here there are many trails that sing and enchant us.
