Landscape Highlights

| Places of Magical Nature


Initially designed to work as a water resevoir for the Castelo de Paiva inhabitants’ use, the Seixo dam, at the Sardoura River, has never been finished. Currently this artificial lake is mainly used for recreational purposes, especially for sport and fishing tourism. In addition to this, the Seixo lagoon also presents good conditions for the observation and interpretation of nature and biodiversity, especially when it comes to flora species. The abundance of water allows the existence of various plants of humid environments, some of them rare, such as the carnivorous plant “Orvalhinha”.
