A weekend chasing almond blossoms

Hey everyone!

This weekend we visited Vila Nova de Foz-Côa, located in the interior of Portugal. It’s a village known for having two  World Heritage sites: one its for The Prehistoric Rock Art Sites at the Côa Valley and one for the Almond Tree Flowers.

Vila Nova de Foz-Côa has the largest density of almond trees in Portugal (about 106.000 trees in 38.000 hectares) and there’s also an event to celebrate nature, which has become a big attraction in spring time.

You can contemplate this magical event yearly, which resembles a lot Japan’s Hanami season! Enjoy the photos!
