The Montesinho Natural Park is one of the largest natural parks in the Iberian Peninsula, located in the northeast of Portugal, in a mountainous area characterized by its extensive biodiversity, the magnificent landscapes and one of the largest patches of black oak in Europe. Since 2020, by a decision of the Portuguese government, a consortium led by More Colab has been responsible for the recovery of the former housing of the forest rangers, who in the past patrolled the Natural Park, for the installation of the “Montesinho Observatory – Dionísio Gonçalves”. The Observatory will comprise a meteorological station to study the dynamics of mountain ecosystems in the face of climate change, a conference room, co-working spaces, as well as tourist housing.
