Geology site description:

At the cliffs of Cabo Espichel there are nice dinosaur tracksways. There are actually two sets of very different prints, one from the Late Jurassic era (The Pedra da Mua) and one set of cretaceous period (the Jazidas de Lagosteiros). Even though the tracks are merely 500 meters apart, they are geologically separated by about 50 million years.
