BIRDWATCHING

A sublime landscape diversity and a high number of habitats makes this country “planted by the sea” an excellent place for birdwatching.

The richness and variety of species and the strategic location of Portugal on the migratory route from Western Europe and Africa, which crosses Portuguese territory twice a year, allows about 360 species to be seen regularly. The size of the country is yet another asset because just a short distance away, you can see completely different species and habitats, not to mention the Tagus estuary less than 30 minutes from Lisbon, the largest wetlands in the country and one of the most important in Europe. In the Algarve, the highlight is the Castro Marim and Ria Formosa areas and in the Alentejo, the Mértola and Castro Verde areas. The international Tagus and the International Douro located further north are also worth highlighting for the charm of the soaring birds.
