Code of Conduct and good practices for visitors in the Protected Areas

Be our partner in the conservation of the Protected Areas

  • Respect private property, close gates if they appear along the route
  • Avoid noise and attitudes that disturb the local peace Keep your distance from animals, do not feed, watch them with binoculars
  • Do not pick plants or collect geological samples, let other visitors also be able to contemplate your wealth
  • Just take photos, they serve as a memory of good times and record the beauty of the landscape
  • Respect the Protected Area signage
  • The trails should be used by small groups at a time, as excess visitors can cause erosion and destruction of vegetation.
