Day 10 Braganca to Vila do Conde
Barragem de Paradela
This route is part of a 10 day motorcycle vacation.

There are no scheduled stops for refueling, eating or drinking. When the opportunity arises, stop at one of the points indicated by a POI. Along the way there are several small villages with restaurants or cafes.
Hotels, sights and recommended points to stop to enjoy the view are also marked with a POI.

The last ride of this great motorcycle vacation takes us to the end point Porto via yet another beautiful routes through Portuguese nature parks.
These roads are varied and sometimes challenging with many curves. The panoramas are breathtaking and there is a lot to see along the way.
The first part of the ride takes us through the Montesinho National Park. The park is located in northwestern Portugal, in the Trás-os-Montes region and is one of the largest nature parks in Portugal. The slate and granite mountains form deep valleys and the clear river water that flows through them offers the perfect habitat for a wide range of plants and animals. Beautiful roads and beautiful panoramas. Beautiful meadows, sierra's, forests, small rivers, mountain lakes and villages.

At RP13 we drive across the Paradela dam into the southern part of Peneda-Gerês National Park, also a park with beautiful winding roads and beautiful nature.

A number of possible places to stop for a while are marked with a Route point;
RP18; Miradouro das Cascatas de Fecha de Barjas, a small lake with a beautiful waterfall.
Along the way there are a number of beaches along the Cavado River, where you can stop for a break and a swim in the river.
RP21 is a slightly smaller beach and RP22 is a larger beach with a parking space and a small restaurant with a terrace.

After this we drive through a more urban area and partly on the highway to Vila do Condo, the final point of this last day.

This route is worth 4 stars because the end of the ride is slightly less spectacular than all other routes.
