Stories of the Land

Serra de Arga

I am very pleased to have the opportunity to share the beauty of this marvellous landscape. You must be thinking which one?? Well my story starts in the North-Western of Portugal, where the geologic time builds up a range of mountains combining graceful valleys, step slopes, mountain plateaux and mysterious fogs coming from the Atlantic sea. This is my favourite region in the world, the gate of Europe, where Man shaped land by building terraces to agriculture purpose, goats, sheep pasturing in the plateaux and stone walls enclosed fields (green painted), contrasting with cold grey granite stones and morning fogs encouraging mysterious dates. The perfect romantic scenery, the Shakespeare love story could happen here in Serra de Arga.
