  • Did you know that about Protected Area
  • The border section of International  Tagus, as well as in the valleys and surrounding areas, is one of the least populated and less frequented areas in Portugal. The fitted valleys of the Tagus and Erges rivers, exhibit a "wild" character which gives them a considerable scenic value and on certain slopes - as is the case of Segura - scarped shaped outcrops rise forming veritable rocky throats. In this Protected Area (23.41 ha) the geological substrate is predominantly shale and it contains an interesting set of characteristic flower species from the meridional landscapes: cork and holm oak woods, dense olive groves, sometimes ledged, and steppes of cereal. In the least fertile soils the gum rockrose dominates. From the existing species, many of them with protection status, we highlight the Otter, the Wild Cat and the Common Genet as well as a deer population along the Tagus and Erges valleys.
  • It is an important area for bird fauna - highlighting the presence of the Black Stork, symbol of the Protected Area, and also numerous birds of prey that nest in the river cliffs. Scarce human population that subsists on a type of agriculture which reflects the conditions of the environment.
