Gerês Granfondo

Gerês Granfondo

June 03 2018
Vila do Gerês, Nr Porto, Portugal

The mix between tradition and modernity is once again the distinguishing mark of Gerês Granfondo, whose course will be hard and challenging, with passages through unpublished places. These places are extremely beautiful and full of symbolism in the local culture. This is the case of the bridge of Misarela, the scene of a war between God and the devil. As will the Gerês Granfondo of 2018, a test near the gods and to flee to the demons.

In the natural paradise that is the National Park of Peneda Gerês, one of the seven natural wonders of Portugal, we will cross the counties of Terras de Bouro, Amares, Vieira do Minho and Montalegre, we will once again cross the walls of Pincães and Ermida and neighboring Serra of Cabreira. Among the novelties of the route includes an unprecedented passage in the dam of Caniçada and the ascent to Santa Isabel do Monte, place of pilgrimage of professionals in the preparation for the Tour to Portugal.

The most mythical of the Portuguese Granfondos goes to its sixth edition and will return to have three routes available: the Granfondo, with 144 km, the Mediofondo with 112 and the Minifondo, with 77. And it returns to be, above all, that place where It gives back taste because it makes us feel at home.
