Parque Florestal do Cabouco Velho
Gardens, Parks and Forests
In the Cabouco Velho Forest Park, at an altitude of 500 metres, you have the chance to enjoy nature to the full. Footpaths, a picnic area, a threshing-floor and a children's playground will help you to enjoy some pleasant moments.
If you're fond of plants, you can discover some cryptomerias, pine-trees, cypresses and sequoias. Pay special attention to the endemic species, such as the lily of the valley tree, dogwood, Azores juniper and the pau-branco ("wood-white"), and enrich your botanical knowledge.
