Day 9 Leon to Braganca
National Park Montesinho
This route is part of a 10 day motorcycle vacation.

There are no scheduled stops for refueling, eating or drinking. When the opportunity presents itself, 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.

On day 9 we leave Spain and we drove to Bragance in Portugal. You drive through two beautiful nature parks where you can enjoy the beautiful panoramas, nature and winding roads along the way.

RP4 The Sierra de la Culebra, a 95 km long regular mountain range of medium height, which forms a natural border with the Portuguese region of Tras os Montes on the west side. The slopes are wooded, occasionally plagued by forest fires. The tops of the range are often covered with snow in the winter and there are weird looking rocky quartzite rocks on it.

A nice town to visit is Puebla de Sanabria (RP10), for some sight seeing and maybe lunch in one of the cafe's or restaurants

At RP14 we cross the border with Portugal and enter the Montesinho National Park. This park is located in the northwestern region of Portugal, close to Bragan and is a very beautiful nature park, with a few small towns such as Franca (RP15), Meixedo, Carragosa or Vinhais, for this you have to deviate from the route but it is certain beautiful towns for a walk. There is also the possibility of hiking. 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 it offers the perfect habitat for a wide range of plants and animals.

The last part of the ride we drive on a beautiful road with many curves and beautiful panoramas to the end point in Braganca.

A nice ride that deserves 5 stars because of the beautiful winding roads through amazing nature reserves.
