“The natural and landscape richness of the mountainous mountain range Montesinho – Coroa and the valuable cultural elements of the human communities that have settled there justify that actions are urgently initiated in order to safeguard the patrimony and the socio – cultural animation of the populations.
This paragraph is the beginning of the preamble to Decree-Law no. 355/79, of August 30, which classified the northern part of the counties of Bragança and Vinhais as a Natural Park. This status was justified by the natural, landscape and human values of the region, the receptiveness of local authorities to safeguard the heritage of their municipalities and parishes and the potential of outdoor recreation and sport that the region possesses.
