Minho region is a fertile land with the extremely rich and varied vegetation. On the hills along big valleys, people grow mostly grapes as ingredients for processing the grape wine, Porto wine and vinho verde wine famous around the world.

The east of Portugal is mainly mountainous region; the climate is hot in summer and quite cold in winter. Therefore, the flora is less than Minho region.

The north of this country is the natural reserve located in famous Peneda-Gerês National Park. Some natural and primitive forests still remain here.
