Meandros of the paiva river

Landscape Highlights

| Geosites


Located near Janarde village and easily observable from a high point, this geosite has four large meanders in the course of the Paiva river. In fact, these are not true meanders, since these structures are formed only at the end sections of the rivers as an exclusive result of the river dynamics. In this case, these are false meanders induced by tectonic and lithological differentiation, originating an exceptional landscape.

Access to the point of interest: 230m on foot; easy
