Serras de D`aire and Candeeiros natural park, Central Portugal

Serras D`aire e Candeeiros
There is nothing like a mountain s fresh unpolluted air to rejuvenate and refresh the body and mind. The Serras de D`aire and Candeeiros are two mountain ranges connected by a deep valley just 100km above Lisbon city.
They are a nature reserve home to a wide variety of unique plants and wildlife and they are an untouched natural museum of rural history that stretches thousands of years over Portugal’s past and they have many remains of the cultures that previously inhabited Portugal. A lot still untouched and unchanged.

The mountains are little known internationally and mostly visited by Portuguese tourists, who travel there mainly for its famous caves, the caves are wonderful and certainly a good reason to visit this wonderful district however there is so much more to Discover! This article will explain why the Serras de D`aire and Candeeiros natural park is worth adding to your travel itinerary.

To start the Serras de D`aire Candeeiros has a perfect location , just 100 km from Lisbon it is connected by the A1 making it roughly one hour from Lisbon city. It is set between 3 Unesco world heritage towns, the town of Alcobaça which is home to the Monastery of Alcobaça, The of town of Batalha home to the no less famous Gothic masterpiece, The Batalha monastery and the city of Tomar where the majestic and amazing castle and many lesser known monuments in the city, reveal the Templar knights headquarters, symbols and way of life of the people of 12th century Portugal.
Another town that borders it is the famous pilgrim town of Fatima.
It is a coastal mountain range meaning that there are many great beaches at close range, it is a perfect place for those who like diverse vacations, nature, relaxation and peace as well as those that like active and adventurous get aways!

Considering that it is a mountain range, the distances are not that big . its a small group of mountains, roughly 40000 hectares in size, the climate is much influenced by the proximity of the ocean causing warm and dry summers and wet winters, snow seldom falls here but frost can occur during the winter months. Roads are excellent though getting to some of the smaller villages in the more remote areas can be a little nerve wrecking but no more than on any other mountain.

Serras de D`aire and Candeeiros natural park as been a protected nature reserve since 1979 and has many plants species, wildlife and insects that are unique in Portugal to this area. it also has many archeological remains that are still unresearched and unique to this area.
