This reserve covers most part of Sado estuary and the surrounding area. It includes important fen areas; Tróia dunes, whose vegetation plays a major role in steadying the sand; Herdade do Pinheiro lagoons, ecosystems that enable the existence of a quite diversified fauna and flora. This humid reserve is the ideal place for breeding, as well as the spot where several species spend Wintertime. If you wish to tour around, you must visit Carrasqueira, a riverside village next to Comporta beach that has preserved a masterpiece of popular architecture: a quay set on wooden stakes that stretches hundreds of meters along the muddy brooks of Sado river. You can also visit Herdade da Mourisca tide mill, comprising a Salt Learning Centre and a restored Salt Galleon, dating back to 1944.
