4.2 Quality and importance

Alberga una interesante comunidad de aves rapaces y una buena representación de flora endémica y amenazada. Muestra un gran interés geomorfológico debido a la existencia de los circos glaciares a más baja cota de la Península. Contigua al Parque Nacional Peneda-Geres (Portugal).
