Although unique the stones which give birth to other stones, the site is probably more interesting for people who like Geology. For people who don’t have so much interest for these kind of issues is probably a long way to go. Enjoy!

These stones are, so it seems, a unique geological feature. The interpretation center shows an excellent 3D movie with a goos explanation. Don't miss it! The zone has great natural beauty.

Unless you´re really into geological phenonema not at all worth it. Very unimpressive, only a few tiny pock marks on the rocks.

This site is superbly laid out with walkways above the bedrock. The Centre opposite, built within an old dwelling, is a star attraction. A superb 3d film, and a real star in the education officer running the centre. Top feature

I recommend to all my family and friends who visit Arouca to go to this place. You must go and see with your own eyes- no words are able to describe!

It's a very interesting place to visit, from what I gather the only place of its kind in all of europe. One thing I could say, though, is that it surely needs more surveillance to prevent people from taking home the rocks (pedras parideiras).
