In the breathtaking lansdcape along the Paiva river in Portugal, engineering studio Trimétrica designed a walkway in dialogue with nature, morphology and panoramic views.
Paiva Walkways is an engineering project by Trimétrica firm that embraces the Paiva river in Northern Portugal, close to Porto, with an extension of 8 kilometers. The design provides a walking path within a breathtaking natural beauty, with picturesque landscapes, waterfalls and a variety of fauna and flora species.
More than a simple walk in contact with the nature, this project committed by the Arouca Minicipality is an unique experience deeply characterized by a dramatic landscape and an infrastructure that interferes as little as possible with the landscape. This is an unusual experience marked by winding stairs to the top of the hill with stunning sceneries, and a very narrow wooden bridges that span across the river among cliffs and abundant vegetation. The walkway continues along the topography, with rest stops and strategic panoramic points to admire the view.
