The Institute of Forests and Nature Conservation (IFCN) reported that from 00:00 today all recommended walking routes in the Region are closed, as well as the infrastructure to support them.
This closure is due to adverse weather warnings issued by the competent authorities because of heavy rain and strong winds. Likewise, people are advised to refrain from visiting mountainous and forested areas while the alerts are in place.
Furthermore, the IFCN has confirmed that the road connecting Eira do Serrado to Pico do Areeiro has been closed as a safety precaution.
