Description

Portas de Ródão are the natural ex-libris of Vila Velha de Ródão, where the Tagus, the most important river in the Iberian Peninsula, runs entrenched among quartzite giants.

Classified as a Natural Monument on May 20th, 2009, “Portas de Ródão” is a unique place for its geological values (Epigenic Canyon of Ródão), landscape (Serra das Talhadas, Natura 2000 site), archaeological (Tagus Valley Rupestre Art Complex), Vilas Ruivas, Foz do Enxarrique, Conhal do Arneiro stations), historical (Ródão Castle, classified national monument) and biological (indigenous flora and more than 170 species of fauna, some rare in Portugal).

The location and richness of “Portas de Ródão” make this protected area a mark, a scenic, symbolic and geographical reference, defined by Hipólito Raposo as “the mutilated jambs of an arc of triumph that a plutonic whim would have left there in honor of the great river in the first dawn of the world ”.
