The retreat takes place in Rossas, a rural village in the municipality of Vieira do Minho, North of Portugal, one hour by car from Porto.
With a diverse atmosphere, the surroundings offer the opportunity to enjoy nature or cities.
Here are some sites to visit and the distance from the retreat location:
• 6 km – Barragem do Ermal
With calm, clear, and crystalline waters the area offers excellent conditions for tourism, including water sports such as swimming, water skiing, wakeboarding, canoeing and stand up paddling.
• 20 km – National park of Peneda-Gerês
The Parque Nacional da Peneda-Gerês is located in the far north of Portugal on the border with Spain.
The National Park is known for its beautiful walking trails, diverse wildlife, and flora. There are now more than 100 granite villages within the Park, which in many ways have changed little since the founding of Portugal in the 12th century.
• 40 km – Guimarães
Guimarães is considered the birthplace of Portugal because Afonso Henriques, the first king of Portugal, was born here. Listed as one of the most well-preserved historic cities, Guimarães offers a variety of national monuments and historic buildings.
• 40 km – Braga
The third-largest city of Portugal combines history and culture. It is home to the oldest cathedral in the country and has the largest university in Portugal.
In the many choices that Braga offers, you can enjoy the vibrant nightlife or visit Bom Jesus do Monte church with its amazing staircase.
• 90 km – Porto
On the top of the steep banks of the River Douro, Porto is the second-largest city in Portugal and boasts superb views of the world-famous Port Wine Cellars, on the opposite bank of the river, in Vila Nova de Gaia.
By the river, the Ribeira district becomes fascinating with its alleys, typical houses, and picturesque population.
The city of Porto offers many other attractions, monuments, and museums. With well-known gastronomy and hospitable population, it is also the starting point for the unforgettable experience of sailing up the Douro River.
