Arouca Geopark: In Serra da Freita with a Geologist

By OUTCROP
OUTCROP invites you to discover the beauty of the natural heritage of Serra da Freita through the watchful eye of a Geologist. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to adopt the recommendations of the Clean & Safe certification, which aim to minimize the risk to all participants. Being a personalized experience and carried out outdoors, it has, by itself, a lower associated risk. Between car and hiking routes, we will go through the granites and shales of Serra da Freita, between the villages of Albergaria da Serra, Merujal and Castanheira, and the springs of the Caima river. We will see breathtaking panoramic views of the central and northern regions of Portugal, which will allow us to know the geomorphology of this vast region. We will observe imposing waterfalls, rare nodules, "redoubled" folds, typical villages, ancestral practices and vestiges of ancient peoples, where geology is the vehicle to understand the whole landscape, or if we were not in the Arouca Geopark.
