Geopark Naturtejo da Meseta Meridional
Discover the first Portuguese Geopark recognised by UNESCO. The Naturtejo Geopark, an exponent of Nature Tourism in Central Portugal, invites you to discover 16 geosites and a land of valuable natural history and cultural heritage.
Travel back in time 600 million years to see the ichnofossils of Penha Garcia. Stroll through Monsanto, the most Portuguese of villages, and the former Roman and Visigothic city of Egitânia, and also discover the spectacular castles and benefices.
Take a boat trip, pay a visit to the Tagus International Natural Park, embarking at Portas de Ródão and revel in the vultures, the black storks and the imperial eagles, the colourful bee-eaters, the singing nightingales, the rutting deer and the flourishing vegetation.
Passing through the 6 municipalities that comprise the Geopark also means getting to know the customs, legends, tales, ancestral rituals and the kindness of their wise people, and to savour the aromas and flavours of the regional cuisine. Enjoy the diverse cultural expressions in spaces of excellence and the craft activities performed by the skilled hands of talented artisans.
