  • A rare and little known site but a must if you are passionate about natural history and Paleontology. Is just a few kilometres from Fátima. The visit includes an introductory film and a walk to see the prints which are impressive in size and because they are obvious and allow to understand the size of the animals. Really interesting.

  • It is particularly to see. Beautiful nature and great view too! Furthermore, our children were there quickly. The dino-paw prints are not more than round holes in the ground of course. It was also a brisk walk for their! It is a bit in the middle of nowhere.

  • Might seem plain and boring to some, but for our two young boys this was a highlight! To see actual Sauropod footprints was really something! It's a safe walk for young kids with great views over Fati...  more »

  • This place gives thrill. When in Portugal.. I recommend you visit caves. Ice caves.
  • 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.
  • More info in English or guide would be an asset, identifying the tracks would also been helpfull , it is an amazing sight to see.
  • Dinosaur tracks if you have an imagination. Geared towards children.
