Natural heritage of the Serras de Aire e Candeeiros - São Bento Jurassic Beach


11 Jul

In 2003, a limestone exploration located in the São Bento Plateau uncovered a Jurassic marine bottom, in which it's possible to observe the fossiliferous content of the seabed from 170 million years ago. At the site is possible to observe a diverse set of fossils and ichnofossils of the Jurassic marine fauna, such as sea lilies, sea urchins, starfish and sea snakes. The place is easy and free to access.
