The stunning wetlands of the River Guadiana, between Castro Marim and Vila Real de Santo António, contain salt marshes, meadows and marshes. A visit here will reveal a rich tapestry of plant and animal life.
Frogs, toads, newts, lizards – all accompany you on your trip along the banks of the River Guadiana. And in the water live bream, bass and mullet.
In the skies, white storks, waders and herons fly by. On land, there are foxes, hares and timid wild rabbits.
The large swathes of marsh on the wetlands provide a contrast to the dry agricultural areas, where cereals, peanuts, figs, carob-beans and olives are grown. And higher up, seek out the shade of boulders and pine trees.
Finally, explore the archaeological remains of the ancient people that once lived here – chief among them are the remains at Castro Marim.
