The National Forest of the Medos is a wooded space located in the parish of the Charneca de Caparica. Its name derives from the name given to the mounds of sand, typically formed by the wind, by the sea ("fears" or "middles"). This trail, located over the cliffs offers privileged views of the Atlantic Ocean, which transport us to other epochs. This is the house of birds like the round-winged eagle, the owl-galego and the owl-of-bush. Where the badger, the hedgehog and the gineta play at their disposal.

The rain offers a vast range of possibilities for connection with nature. Walks will be canceled only in case of severe storms. We will walk with light rain showers.

(*) We recommend you arrive up to 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time. The end time is approximate. The timings can vary depending on the weather conditions and the number of participants in each walk.
