Montesinho Natural Park is one of the largest natural parks in the Iberian Peninsula. 

It is located in the northeast of Portugal in a mountainous area characterized by extensive biodiversity, magnificent landscapes, and one of the largest patches of black oak in Europe.

Since 2020, following a decision by the Portuguese government, a consortium led by More Colab has been responsible for the recovery of the former housing of the forest rangers who patrolled the Natural Park in the past, for the installation of the "MontesinhoObservatory - 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, and tourist housing.
