Serra dos Candeeiros

Located between the Sicó and Montejunto mountains, it measures 22 kilometres. It belongs to the Natural Park of the Aire and Candeeiros Hills and it is formed by limestone that dates back to the medium Jurassic and the superior Jurassic. It is the most important calcareous massif in Portugal. The rare and spaced out vegetation speaks of its calcareous nature. The tectonic phenomena, throughout the ages, created caves and springs. The Natural Park includes a set of rare formations of great beauty, such as grottos, poljes, cliffs, limestone pavements and more. Do not miss a visit to the Arrimal lagoons, the Portela de Vale de Espinho mills, the Vale Ventos Farm, the Arco da Memória (Memory Arch), Chão de Pias, the Fórnea, the high plain of the Santo António Hill and the Canada valley.
