Other Site Characteristics

Bom exemplo de ambiente de influência atlântica no país. O Sítio é percorrido por numerosos rios e inclui uma grande amplitude altitudinal, ultrapassando mesmo os 1500 metros.

4.2 Quality and importance

A sua situação geográfica e orografia determinam que esta zona seja o limite sul da área de distribuição de algumas espécies da avifauna típicas da Europa atlântica, cujas principais populações em Portugal aqui se encontram.
