Tibo is a typical mountain village, located on the slopes of the Serra da Peneda. Its positioning at the mouth of the valley of the river Pomba (North-northwest), complemented by other striking elements in the landscape such as the Peneda Valley ( North-northeast), the sheer granite cliffs of Fraga das Pastorinhas (east) and the mountain range system of Serra do Soajo (south), all add up to a unique landscape and environment. In the area surrounding the hamlet can be seen farmed fields interspersed by wood copses, mainly oak and riverside woods and small streams that flow into the river Pomba or the river Peneda.
Similar to other places in the remote interior of the country, Tibo has fewer and fewer inhabitants. Those who remain continue to occupy themselves with farming, this being one of the places with the greatest head of cattle in the national park.
