"Rota dos Fósséis" (Fósiles), en Penha Garcia. Homologada, balizada, corta y fácil: 4 km. Para caminarla despacio, apreciando y disfrutando todo lo que nos ofrece. Es simplemente preciosa. Parte de la "Igreja Matriz" (Iglesia Principal), sube al Castillo, y va descendiendo luego hasta el muro de la presa sobre "a Ribeira do Pônsul". Sigue bajando hasta el valle entre crestas e impresionantes murallones de cuarcita en los que observamos, a simple vista, grandes fósiles ordovícicos: trylobites, ammonites, crucianas... Podremos ver las paredes verticales "em quartzitos" donde entrenan, en sus vías marcadas, diversas escuelas de montañeros portugueses y extremeños.
En el valle del río Ponsul hay numerosos fósiles marinos al lado del camino y un museo de los mismos, varios molinos de rodicio, uno de los cuales sigue en funcionamiento.
