  • Fascinating history, geology, evolution. Absolutely loved this place. For me it was magical walking in the dinosaurs footprints. Beautiful scenery and views.
  • You know they are only foot steps, and you ask yourself 'what am I doing here?'. You transport yourself up a hill and you move from the 21st century to a couple of million centuries BC! Recorded footsteps of beasts we knew nothing about until a century ago. And not just a couple, its a herd travelling in multiple directions. You can imagine a heavy savanna rain during a dinosaur migration, only that year, it dried fast and for a long time, caking the ground, and cementing the prints for eternity. The mud plain which was once flat, is now angled at 20 degrees. Thus the prints remain, a snapshot in time. It just shows how little our time on this planet is and how the planet has changed, but still in this case, it leaves us something which is as it has been for millions of years.
  • Dinosaur tracks if you have an imagination. Geared towards children.
  • Beautiful site, very cheap, very subtle footprints, though certainly worth visiting. Very strong wind when I was visiting, making a the visit a lot less comfortable.
  • Fatima area should be visit also for other reasons besides religion. In fact this region has a lot to See, specially in natural history. Central area of Portugal, from Coimbra to Lisbon, and from Óbidos, passing thru Alcobaça, Batalha, Porto de Mós, Fátima, Ourém and Tomar, Will Give you a good intel about the history of this region since the Jurrasic era, passing thru the very begining of Man ages...and of course, the contribution of These places on the foundation of what We know as Portugal.
