Environmental certification has proved to be an important instrument of environmental policy, given the necessary and urgent accountability for environmental problems and the search for solutions.
The municipality of Baião is committed to making our territory an environmentally sustainable destination.
This is where our journey begins. Embracing sustainability is a responsibility for all of us. Join us towards a greener and better future.

Up to date

THE IDENTITY VALUE OF THE TERRITORY

Due to its geographical position and the relief features, Baião has remained an area that is barely permeable to the outside and moderately altered even when compared to the rest of the region.

Positioned between the Douro River and the mountains, Baião has a remarkable diversity in terms of natural resources and human historical and cultural elements. The relative isolation that has marked it over the centuries and even today has contributed to preserve our heritage and ways of life in a harmony between physical and human forms, between material and immaterial or between past and future are the axes that guide the personality of the territory.

Between steep slopes and a vast forest that covers 70% of the territory, an old agricultural tradition, there are precious testimonies of a millennial human presence, in which civilizational layers overlap from prehistory to the present, with marks of almost practically all historical periods and so many cultural upheavals, legacies of an identity of its own.
