PARQUE NATURAL DAS SERRAS DE AIRE E CANDEEIROS
Overview
This Park (Aires and Candeeiros Mountains Nature Park ) is an integral part of the “Maciço Calcário Estremenho”, an important limestone rockmass in Portugal. Limestone is, of course, an important characteristic of this area, in which you’ll find numerous caverns and galleries: all in all, a paradise for speleologists. It’s a somewhat arid zone, given the fact that there are no water courses at ground level whatsoever. The Park is filled with a rough, arid land which lends itself to small walks amidst the mountain range.
