Tejo Internacional Nature Park stretches south from Castelo Branco along a river area, which is over a dozen km long. It is extremely rich in botanical terms, comprising several endemic species, as well as a wide range of migratory birds and birds of prey that find here excellent nesting conditions. Such is the case of the Egyptian Vulture, short-toed Eage, Bonelli’s eagle, the black stork and some rare mammals (for example the otter or the genet). You can also observe here other animal species such as deer, wolves, wild boars, eagles and falcons. A total amount of 150 bird species, 31 mammals, 13 amphibians, 14 reptiles and several insect and fish species was identified. Apart from its beauty and natural richness, this Park also stands out for the historical and cultural legacy. Vestiges of Neolithic times, Roman graves, as well as interesting popular architecture buildings, perfectly integrated in the surrounding landscape, can be seen here.
