The National Network of Protected Areas is a repository for biodiversity in Portugal, with the areas included in it being of particular importance for their rarity and scientific, ecological, social or scenic value. The Institute for Nature Conservation and Forests - ICNF is the guardian of this wealth and promotes its conservation through the rational management of natural resources and the enhancement of natural and cultural heritage. There are 48 Protected Areas on the Portuguese mainland, including a national park, 14 nature parks, 11 nature reserves and 14 protected landscapes, national and regional in scope, seven natural monuments and a private protected area, and each one is well worth visiting and exploring.
