Center of Nature Interpretation of Monserrate
Through an innovative approach, which uses digital tools and educational materials, visitors are invited to travel back in time to discover the main episodes that defined the geological, cultural and natural history of the Sintra Hills. The particularities of the riverside ecosystems are explored using an aquarium, where it is possible to get to know some of its inhabitants live. The biology of the trees, another of the themes highlighted, is explained through the model of a Portuguese oak decomposed into root, trunk and crown. The visit ends with the projection of profiles of birds and winged mammals in flight, with which visitors are able to identify these species by their behavior, their anatomical features or even their vocalizations.
