Walk to the Botancial Garden

Walk to the Botancial Garden

The walk starts in Caldas, in front of the Hotel Central (meeting point) and passes the chapel, crossing the EN 266 to Esgravatadouro, in the direction of Fornalha. It's about 1.2 kilometres to the action site. Only native tree species have space here. Visit to the Miyawaki forest. Explanation of the sprinkler system with cisterns against future forest fires, which we installed in 2022 to protect the trees. We planted Monchique oaks, carob trees, cork oaks, walnut trees and other species. We cleared all invasive tree species.
