Minho 2016

The Minho Region is located in the north of Portugal, forty kilometers from the city of Oporto and border with the neighbour Galicia. At the moment the region is divided in sub-regions of Minho-Lima and Cávado, and partly by sub-regions Ave and Tamega. With a population of over 1.1 million inhabitants, the region is often associated with the green of its natural scenery, where water is in abundance.
