This hidden place is not visited by many and is a pity. It is first of all a program for victims of exclusion, unemployed people, handicapped and cronical diseases. The project is composed by:
- A good restaurant, with many typical plates of the region.
- A museum of arts and handicraft, typical from the region.
- Horseback riding centre where there are special programs using special therapeutics with animals to help handicapped children.
- A swimming pool.
The highlight though is the biological park a lovely and extensive area, done with care and love and not a lot of money. It brings the fauna of Portugal and some more exotic animals. Has a farm with many animals, a labyrinth, and the zoo itself in the middle of the mountains and the trees with many animals from bears to wolfs, wild boars, lamas, wild cats and many others.
For the social service it does and for the quality and care in what it shows it is for me without a doubt a place to visit.
Gondramaz is a typical shiest village totally recovered set in the top of a Hill and with many nice hiking trails around. The views over the mountains around are beautiful.
