Monumento Natural da Pedra da Mua

Natural monument encompassed within the limits of the Arrábida Natural Park, it is a surface in the cliffs of Cape Espichel, beneath the Chapel of remembrance, composed of limestone slabs that include tracks of footprints of sauropods. One of the tracks is associated with the legend of our Lady of Pedra Mua, which refers to the tracks of a giant mule that would have transported the Holy hillside above.
