Says the legend that this path was made by the devil for a desperate knight looking to cross a river to reach his lady. In fact, this sinuous path has stimulated the imagination of many, but its historical origin is roman.
With 8km of shale (“xisto”) rocks guiding your steps, this winding path will guide you through a remarkable landscape of geological features. Beyond this, bird watching of some rare species of vultures and eagles is possible here. A place to explore!

La Tenerie
La Tenerie
is a rural hotel in Sendim (“Trás-os-Montes” region) in the north of Portugal. In this region nature lovers can find breathtaking landscapes and explore the international region of Douro river (the natural border between Portugal and Spain).
In La Tenerie my experience was great, the owner and his family were extremely friendly and gave us a warm welcome.The hotel is quite comfortable and has several art crafts attending the village rural traditions and nature.
The breakfast its superb, fresh bread and home-made jams from cherry, pumpkin, raspberry, are waiting you in the morning! The same I can say about the other meals. We have tasted the traditional local food “posta mirandesa” (grilled cow meat) and “alheira” (chicken and bread sausage) and they were delicious. The red wine is also a must!
The owner can also tell you some stories around the language of the place, the “mirandês” dialect, (Portugal second language), just used in Miranda do Douro region. La Tenerie is a “mirandês” word that means leather factory.
An excellent place for a stay if you are a trekking and a gastronomy lover.
