From the Park to the Hunting Grounds: Two Forests One Unique Experience
Combined programme offering a visit to Monserrate Hunting Ground, in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, and to Mafra Hunting Ground, taking advantage of the common points and complementary elements that link both sites. At Monserrate Hunting Ground, we explore the natural history of the Sintra hills, their peculiar microclimate and concepts such as forest food, ecological succession and invasive species, among others. At Mafra National Hunting Ground, along a walking route, we discover clues left by passing animals: footprints, faeces, hairs, feathers and signs of behaviour that give away the biodiversity of this forest.
