Une ambiance de grand exotisme, due la d嶰ouverte d'int廨essantes structures g廩morphologiques et d'exemplaires rares de fossiles.

Le premier conseil aux touristes, est de monter au Ch漮eau, pour admirer un panorama inoubliable, vous aurez toute la campagne de "Idanha" vos pieds, se d彋achant au loin la montagne de "Monsanto" et autres 幨憝ations.
