Viewpoints and Observatories

There are landscapes that leave us breathless, that show us the raw beauty of nature. In Esposende you will find viewpoints to prove it.

The municipality of Esposende has a series of structures installed along the coast and in the estuaries of the Cávado and Neiva rivers, identified as Viewpoints, Observatories and Panoramic Observation Towers.
In addition to these places, which benefit from this equipment, there are a number of Hotspots with their own natural values, which mark the natural biodiversity present throughout the extension of the North Coast Natural Park.
The places where these equipments are located are also integrated in the pedestrian trails that constitute the Network of Pedestrian Routes of the Municipality of Esposende and constitute added value for its valorization.
As a complement to the visit of the natural and historical values of the municipality of Esposende, we recommend that you also visit the viewpoints, which are also integrated into a network and form the network of viewpoints in the municipality of Esposende. These, located on top of the main hills of the Arriba Fóssil and Cávado valley, allow the observation of almost the entire territory and are points of great demand for the observation of birds and other fauna or simple panoramic observation.
