Description

At the beginning you will travel from Lisbon to Lourinhã, where you will visit the natural history museum Museu da Lourinhã. Take a look at the bones, teeth and other remains of the dangerous dinosaurs that once populated the earth. You can also admire the largest nest of dinosaur eggs in the world.

You will then be chauffeured to the small village of Baleal, which turns into an island as soon as the tide floods the sandbanks that connect it to the mainland. Admire Cape Carvoeiro and the local lighthouse and let yourself be captivated by the forces of the sea that crash against the rugged cliffs.

You will visit the former stone quarry Pedreira do Galinha, where by chance outstanding dinosaur tracks were discovered. Probably the most important site of discovery of traces of sauropods, a four-legged dinosaur whose natural habitat was in the west of Portugal, testifies to its existence more than 175 million years ago. The footprints there are over 100 metres long and will show you the impressive size of the animals.

Explore the protected Serras de Aire e Candeeiros Natural Park, whose greatest wealth is hidden beneath the surface. Beautiful caves are waiting to be visited by you. In the course of time, nature has created unique rock formations here. View the fascinating stalagmites and stalactites. Finally, near Alcanede, you will visit the Algar do Pena cave, the largest burial chamber in the country discovered to date
