The karst nature of this region allows the existence of countless caves and algars.
Visit Mira de Aire, Alvados or Santo António caves or venture into the earth by practising speleology.
Walk, climb, ride a bike or horse… here, nature invites you to practise sports and go on an adventure because, after all, nature here is to be experienced!
One of the highlights of Porto de Mós cultural life is the São Pedro festivities that take place annually at the end of June. Throughout one week, gastronomy, music, crafts and tradition are celebrated here. This event is attended by thousands of people and it’s a worthwhile visit!
