Paisagem Protegida da Arriba Fóssil da Costa de Caparica
The woodland, which is dominated by stone pines and mastic-trees, is a botanical reserve, where it is possible to take pleasant walks following the trail signs in the zone.
The unusual shapes of the fossil coast can be seen in their full splendour at dusk, when they acquire golden tones. Over time, erosion has sculpted shapes into the steep cliffs, where several birds of prey such as the round winged eagle and the barn owl build their nests. If you also want a bird’s eye view of the area, ascend to the Belvedere of the Convent of the Capuchos and admire a landscape that covers a vast area from the Serra de Sintra to Cabo Espichel.
The greatest attraction of the Costa de Caparica are the beaches, which are the most popular beaches in the Lisbon region, covering a 10 km stretch. Here, it is possible to practice nautical sports or simply sunbathe. Those looking for more entertainment will find a series of restaurants and bars that provide intense nightlife.
