Serra D’Aire is possibly one of the most surprising mountains we have come across in Portugal holding most likely the remains of the oldest, barely remembered cultures in Portugal.

The mountains themselves contain many interesting places, like pre-historic grotto’s, ancient villages, sporting activities and nature adventures.
But what we want to concentrate on in this article is it’s impressive historical remains, that go back at least 2000 years and they show that it once was a place of incredible activity and production. Kilometre after kilometre of natural stone wall splitting the landscape into small contained patches in interesting geometrical construction of human intervention that would probably have held cattle, sheep and goats and functioned to keep neighbours out of your olive tree, as one local remarked.

You can find tracks of heavy, stone wheels from ancient agricultural transportation means and here and there, a few remains of buildings used for storage or animal housing.

The small roads and paths are a maze of routes and the ever present olive trees seem to go back as far in time as the first piling of stones that made each field somebody’s property.

Soon we will have more information on this impressive and interesting  landscape, places to stay, eat and visit!
