Created under the ruling of D. João V as a court leisure park, Mafra Mational Reserve – Tapada Nacional de Mafra preserves a natural heritage of unique characteristics. Set in a 800 ha area, this reserve has deer, fallow deer, wild boars, foxes, birds of prey and many other species coexisting in a truly unique and diversified flora setting that survived 2003 fires. It is a profusely vegetated area with an uneven relief, crossed by water streams, such as Ribeira de Safarujo. This reserve is rich in pine trees, cork trees, oak trees and chestnut trees, some fundamental species for wild boar nourishing. There is a Hunting Museum here, assembling ancient weapons and stuffed animals, as well as a 19th century Museum of Animal Pulled Vehicles. The reserve tries to create nature preservation awareness among its visitors through guided tours. The whole area is delimited by a high wall, which is over 21 km long. On weekends and national holidays, the reserve opens its doors to individual visitors. The guided tours are carried out in a tourism train. There is also the possibility visiting the reserve on foot.
