Rocha da Pena

Between Benafim and Salir, right in the ravines of the Algarve, Rocha da Pena is a place with a bleak landscape in a large plateau, about 2 km wide and almost 500 metres high. Of speological interest due to th existence of several caves, the Site is also extremely rich in terms of its fauna (namely, for their rarity, the buzzard and the Bonelli's eagle) and its flora (wild rose, wild orchid and marsh tea). Algar dos Mouros, at the top of the rock, is known in historical terms because the moors took refuge there when Salir was reconquered. Aside from its fruitful walks and due to its ravines, Rocha da Pena is very sought after by those who enjoy climbing.
