The Espadanedo sandy river bank is part of a fantastic landscape. Here flows the Espadanedo stream, wrapped in forests, and with high biodiversity. Cork oaks, pedunculated oaks, common hawthorns and lote trees, make up the slopes. Along the Douro can still also see willows, black alders and a diverse herbaceous flora like columbine or the beautiful purple loosestrife typical of riparian zones. The fauna also abounds on these slopes of the Douro: the common toad, the marbled newt or the fire salamander are some of the amphibians that roam around here and, in the case of invertebrates, one can find, the emperor dragonfly, the marsh fritillary butterfly, or the stag beetle.
