Pia do Urso: from home recovery to the Sensory Ecopark and bike ride
"Sounds, flavors and shapes awaken the senses along 600 meters of a path flanked by various sensory stations. We speak of the Pia do Urso Sensory Ecopark, an old village recovered in the Batalha county that deserves to be visited for several reasons. It is in the parish of São Mamede that we find the village of Pia do Urso. Set in an absolutely fantastic setting, in communion with nature and in the middle of the Limestone Massif, the old village, fully recovered, maintains the typical mountain dwellings, with the limestone skillfully lining the characteristic dwellings. These days, one of the main tourist attraction in Pia do Urso is the Sensorial Ecopark, a unique equipment in the country, geared for the whole family. The Ecopark was born from the need to revitalize the village of Pia do Urso, which was in an advanced state of degradation. It consists of the restored houses, the spaces to support visitors and a sensory path."
