Serra do Soajo, in the heart of the Peneda Gerês National Park, the only one  comprised in the south by the River Lima and in the north by Castro Laboreiro, it rises to 1416 m of altitude on its peak called Pedrada, being the highest in Alto-Minho.

   With a relative north-south orientation, this magnificent mountain range is located in the municipality of Arcos de Valdevez, Monção and Melgaço, housing an incalculable wealth of symbolic and built-up capital, very well preserved, from culture to biodiversity.

   Its name “Serra do Soajo”, derives from the village of Soajo, formerly town and seat of the municipality, and one of the oldest villages in Portugal, where the peak (Pedrada) is located. Vila de Soajo, in other times, stood out for being a “tourist” hub for royal mounts, which were held in the aforementioned mountain range, where the Fojos do Lobo is still found.
