Photographer's Note

Hi dear TE friends

After some days out, I'm back with another picture from Caves of Mira D'Aire

I hope you like it !

Near the Town Hall of Porto de Mós, the Natural History Museum displays collections of archaeological remains and geological and mineralogical finds from the Aire e Candeeiros mountains, where a natural park is one of the region's main attractions.

The protected area covers 96 thousand acres of a limestone landscape of undergrowth, olive groves and pastures and the earth's core shelters a large number of underground caverns with strange rock formations and marvellous stalactites and stalagmites which attract many visitors.

The best known are the Grutas de Mira d'Aire, at 17 kilometres (10 miles) from Porto de Mós, displaying underground lakes and a labyrinth of tunnels and passages at a depth of 110 metres (360 ft), and the caves of Saint Anthony, at the Serra de Minde mountain. The tour through the caverns ends with a music, light and water show.
