Description: Serra do Marao is the sixth largest elevation of mainland Portugal, with an altitude of 1415 m. It lies in the transition region of Douro Litoral to Tras os Montes and Alto Douro. At the highest point is the geodetic vertex of the Marao and the Astronomy Observatory Marao. The vine is the dominant culture in the inhabited areas of its southern slopes. Geologically it is composed of large patches of schist or granite, in the area of Campanho exists a small pouch of limestone, which is exploited for agricultural purposes to correct the soil acidity. Along the ridge are several installations of abandoned tungsten mines that had their heyday in the times of World War II.
