The Karst route

Batalha can be found perched on the Estremenho Limestone Massif, encompassed by the Serras de Aire e Candeeiros Natural Park (PNSAC). The limestone substrate is what has created the striking landscape, where visitors can see several naturally-occurring phenomena such as caves, gorges, cliffs and limestone pavements, among others. Among the most varied rocks, flora and fauna that characterise the Estremenho Limestone Massif, the area constitutes the largest Iberian sample of historical geology. This trail will lead visitors on a path of discovery of a diverse geological richness in the parishes of Reguengo do Fetal and São Mamede.
