While in Portugal we had the chance to visit an old quarry near Fatima where more than 200 dinosaur footprints had been discovered. Situated in the heart of the Natural Park of Serra de Aire and Candeeiros, there are are at least 15 tracks, two of which are more than 140m long and date the Jurassic Period. The longest track had 90 footprints. It is considered one of the world’s most importance sources of fossilised dinosuar footprints (along with another track near Lisbon) and is currently on the tentative UNESCO World Heritage Site list (detail can be found here).
This was the main area of the quarry where the footprints were discovered. The lighter lines you might be able to see are the paths we were able to walk along. We literally had the place to ourselves, which was great.
Such a fantastic view
