TOUR DESCRIPTION

CAVES IN THE NATURAL PARK OF SIERRA D'AIRE AND CANDEEIROS


In the center of the country the limestone massif of the Extremadura is composed by 2 great mountains; the mountain “Serra de Aire” and “Serra dos Candeeiros” where there are numerous underground water courses that they gave rise to numerous caverns although most of them are not exploited and open to the public.

On this tour we will make a visit to 3 different caves in these two mountains, distant between them, with different characteristics and older than 80,000 years that were only discovered by chance in the second half of the 20th century.
